Popular votes pick EC members, land mass picks....?
Well, I got that number straight from FoxNews Jr, the Compliant News Network - CNN:
"Asked whether they would support Bush if he runs for re-election in 2004, one-third of the respondents said they would definitely vote for him,
while another third said they would definitely vote against him. One-third described themselves as undecided."
That they couldn't bring themselves to put it in numerical form is more testimony to their corporate whoredom and bowing to the Naked Emperor.
Thomas: I can be a supply side advocate in some circumstances, but Reganomics has bee proven to NOT work - it's flawed for it's lack of accounting
for variables ( in this case "war"& recession) and inability to stray from the game plan. I have seen no Economist, no one holding a PhD in
Economics, come out and support this plan or even explain the logic of $670 Billion being removed from the Federal operating budget over 10 years
while embarking on a Iraqi war effort that will spend another conservative estimate of $200 Billion over the same period. Even Paul O'Neil booed
States and municipalites that are in severe deficit or near bankruptcy are across the board: some have been long time conservative strongholds, so the
idiology argument is moot.
The money for needed programs is cut from the fed level to pay for fed tax cuts, the programs still have to be paid for, states cut to the bone and
services suffer and it all equals out to big state level tax increases.
When the White Hous C of S is quoting $300 Billion in deficit by next year, and government agencies are saying it's going to be $200 Billion this
year, we could be ripe for a full scale depression.
Bush has withheld two thirds of the money he promised for education - states have to make up for it. Remember Reagan calculating Ketchup & Relish as
vegetables to work his school spending numbers against a tax cut? The theory that Clinton benefitted from Reagan's policies is false, refer to the
chart's above as to the Reagan legacy.
