No one on the democratic or the left will admit to any this statement.

The good intentions of the democrats have scarred the American landscape for decades to come.
It began with President Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” fiasco. The welfare programs that came from that have created a persistent circle of poverty and crime around the necks of every large American city.
Government housing that came from that legislation intensified crime near the city cores, causing business and others to flee for higher ground.
Welfare instead of helping the poor made them less willing to be creative and productive.
Those businesses that remained and tried to tough it out went broke, people that had all their money tied to the equity in their homes lost everything as public housing encroached on solid neighborhoods and turned them into slums.
No war in history has done more damage in the range that has been done to American cities by the Democrat’s “Great Society” failure.
That cancer of poverty and crime from those mistakes continues to grow to this day.

The more I think about this, I think it may be a good thing. I doubt the Democrats are going to keep control of the legislative branch for long, Bush still has his veto power, and the Republicans have been taught a lesson to keep to their core values that they have seemed to abandon over the past few years.
Remember 2008 is only 2 years away!
