I posted this as a reply in another thread, but I think my point is good enough that I thought I should start a new thread with it. Check it, homie: Democrats are mean and nasty because they steal people's hard earned money, and waste it on mismanaged programs. The government is soooo good at running the post office (that is ALWAYS misdelivering my mail) and the DMV, and hey, how about the two government programs that are eating up the budget aside from all the bail outs and bloat proposed by the Democrats in control of house and senate? Social security and Medicare, both ineffective, both well on their way to being bankrupt. So hey, logically we should just make them MORe powerful then and send them MORE money to waste... sense the sarcasm, right? I don't have rhetoric, people, I don't represent the GOP. The GOP lost me along time ago when they stopped believe in reducing government spending and stop representing any solid principles. When they become Democrat Lite, so to speak, spenders on a smaller scale, I knew no party was representing me. So from me comes no rhetoric, only common sense. I support Palin because during her debate, and during the election season, she was pretty much the only person talking about cutting spending, and drilling as a way to boost the economy by creating jobs and putting checks in people's pockets from revenue generated from drilling. Yes, in Alaska they do drill, and in Alaska everyone gets a check in the mail not because of loopy socialism, but because of the money generated from drilling on the people's land. She seemed to represent freedom, and growing an economy by keeping government out of that way... which has ALWAYS proven to work. All Obama and the democrats want to do is spend like there is no deficit (Obama stated in an interview he doesn't care about the deficit), block us from becoming energy independent, bail their business buddies and unions out, spit all over the Constitution (Obama said he disagrees with the Constitution as a document of "negative rights"...wtf??), and print and spend reducing our money into monopoly currency....... ...and none of you people seem to care because you are so married to the idea of being open minded, "cool" Democrat types. Sorry, but politics aren't about being involved in clubs or cults of personality, that is dangerous and it can destroy everything that was have achieved as a nation thus far. I doubt many of you have been overseas, but I have, and if you see the shit condition most other countries are in BECAUSE of a government entity controlling the economy and flow of money (kind of what our government is moving towards)... then you would know how truly lucky you are as Americans. Shame on all of you, you are going to squander your liberties and give up your rights by continuing to vote mindlessly for Democrats. I probably shouldn't be bothering because Ill never change anyone's rhetoric, in which you are constantly trying to glorify the Democrat party and overlook their faults. This isn't a partisan issue, it's a bigger issue. It's about preserving our way of life, and not destroying our economy and country in the process of voting for charismatic demogogs that pander to minorities, buys votes, and offers no real solutions except for tired government-centric policies rehased from the age of FDR and Carter. FDR only prolonged the Great Depression by keeping Hoover's taxes high and wasting the money on social programs and government created jobs, and creating cockamamey social programs like Social Security that are struggling and mismanaged to this day. Thus taking more money out of people's pockets, instead of keeping taxes low and allow businesses to flourish and CREATE new, better paying jobs for all Americans. I don't even have to get into the Carter years with massive inflation and recession. So get over your class envy, and grow up, and realize that we need that top 1% here in this country to create better paying jobs for all. Not tax the sweet living hell out of them, force them to have to lay people off, destroy the private sector and free market, and create more people working for Govt and thus taking more money from other people who create privitized jobs.
