Now, were you one of the people (as i was at the time) who said the same thing about Al Gore?
Because if you were, you had better get up to speed on how much the Bush administration has increased spending while lowering taxes, and you had better read a lot, and pay the fuck attention. IT MAY ALREADY BE TOO LATE for this country due to deficit and empending economic calamity! Because the "conservatives" increased non-military spending by more than any administration since Franklin Roosevelt (in other words, 2nd most in US history). And did the country grow OUT of a bad economy with that spending, as it did with FDR and his public works investments? No! It grew INTO a bad economy.
Goddamnit, if you are going to parrot the Reagan view of Republican taxation policy, you'd better be crystal clear on how far away King George is from that in practice. King George makes Bill Clinton look like Ron Reagan, and that's a fact.
The Republican party is a party of theocracy, kleptocracy, and monarchy, that believes every four years, you elect a king to do whatever the fuck he wants, irrespective of our law and our popular will. You want to give them four more years?
