What is it that you think the Prez should do for the common man? Are you thinking that big spending programs is good for the C-M? Maybe some
more Take From the Rich and Give to the Poor (translation, take from the ones who earned it and give to the ones that didn't lift a finger to earn
I never understood what people rexpect the Prez to do for them.
My qualms with this president is that he has acted more like a democrat. That was the problem with his father, he wasn't as fiscally conservative as
I'd like him to have been.
People seem to think that the way out of any situation is to throw money at it. I thought that way (thanks to the left-tilted public education
system), but by the time I reached 20, I'd read and studied enough on my own to know that isn't the way it works.
The democrats immediately began blaming all the woes on Bush, even before he'd warmed the chair up at all. To be naive enough to think that Dubya
was the cause of the economic distress we were in when he first took office is to not understand, not only politics, but economics.
Some think that taxes should not be lowered, and if it is, only for the poor. Since the poor pay little tax, that'll do no good. Since the top 10%
pay over 2/3 of the tax collected by the IRS, that is also not fair. Since the wealthy are the ones that have the ability to expand their businesses,
creating a larger tax base by employing more people and causing our economy to grow, it is obvious that this is the way to go.
Personally, I have never been offered a job by anyone who was poor. It has always been from the ones who are self-motivated go-getters that took the
risks and achieved the American dream.
Thank God for the wealthy, and never mind those who want to steal from them.
