Oh for the love of Pete. Do either of you hold your beloved former president accountable for any action he has taken or must we use conspiracy
theories to the ninth degree to make sure its all the fault of the current president? You know there are those who acknowledge the study of economics
prior to 2000 who accurately forecasted this recession before 1997. Al Greenspan for one.
My point is there are two ways of looking at the economic situation; On the one hand, we can say Clinton did it all himself and as soon as Bush came
in, he destroyed it..even before he was sworn in, I believe we started getting the recession reports from Brokaw.
We can also say the American people worked their asses off for the economy which was systematically torn down over a decade along with national
security in line with the ideology that Clinton himself has stated: "Americans will have to be ready for a world where they aren't the only
super-power, militarily or economically"
Now, folks I backed Clinton as president even through Monica and Paula but as someone with an economic education and background, I have to take issue
with decisions that were made to remove the sovereignty of the US and raise taxes to the point that a non-for-profit government had planned an illegal
surplus ( money not even the most wasteful could spend) . Now, when the US government has so much money it can't figure out what the hell to do with
it and business owners are having to cut employees to pay their taxes, something is wrong.
I know, I know, Clinton was Robin Hood, robbed from the rich and gave to the poor....but at a rate of 73% waste, did the poor get any better or did
they get just enough to lock them further in poverty and dependence on the government? If you really read Robin Hood, I think you'll find he took
from an unfair illegally over-taxing government and returned it to the people who earned it.
I think most democrats know that tax cuts are the answer. I think all this posturing is doing nothing more than arguing over who gives it.
Meanwhile, the IRS continues to run rough-shot, un-policed making its own rules to apply to its current needs.
Fellow democrats, until we purge the hatred for the president to the point that love of our country again is our guiding factor, I fear we are
destined for nothing more than watching from the sidelines while the real game is played by a one-sided team. This we must prevent.
