No one answered the argument that debunks the whole thing, wasn't the policy from the Clinton years?
With a two-party system, you have to look at which side is more inclined towards less Federal power. That party is the Republicans, in the future this may change; so then, will my party affiliation.

Um, no. It was that month long holiday Bush took RIGHT BEFORE 9-11 onlyt after 8 months in office that got us into trouble. Stop lying.

Wait...are you saying that the reason we were attacked was because Bush was out riding horses?
YES. He and his administration were exceedingly negligent. They were warned by the previous administration that Al Queda would be their main problem but, they focused on invading Iraq---not wanting to hear about Al-Queda. Then, they went on a month long holiday. After 9-11, they STILL wanted to go after Iraq and not nail the guys that did it. Read a book. Sheesh.
Anyway, in response to your first post- The world was not all lollipops and puppydogs before 2000. Go look at history. People were dying. Serbs and Kosovars were having that ethnic war they do every few decades. AIDS began running rampant in Africa. Arabs were still being beaten under a theocracy in many nations in the Middle East. Israel and Palestine still hated eachother. Drug use was an issue. Crime still existed. Our government from BOTH sides of the poloticla spectrum did stuff that would make us sick with disgust.
Take off the rose-colored glasses and look at history for what it is. The world didn't change. We were just hiding from it. Well, in 2001, the world got sick of us hiding from it, so it decided to come find us.
Oh, so now its just fate and Bush is juyst a victim of it. Gimmie a break.
