I started thinking about this and after finding someone else mention it in another thread, I felt it needs more attention. If there is a better
thread on this topic, or if this would be better suited in a different location feel free to help me out.
The fact that these leaders even have the notion to keep referring back to something in the past is telling of their true ability to lead a nation
"forward". Its ok to refer to the past for the cause of current issues but lets take a step back at the bigger picture here.
I have heard Obama and Biden use the "two wars on a credit card" statement. Probably used elsewhere too.
So quite simply: what about WW1, WW2, Nagasaki/Hiroshima, Korean War, Vietnam. I cannot say Democrats are solely responsible for starting these but
if you want to get technical the majority of this stuff was under their watch.
Why do they have to go back and change the social welfare programs they created medicare, medicaid, SS..they almost make it seem as they are
republican created programs they were getting elected and paid to create those programs that are failing today... and once again they are getting
elected and paid to fix and replace parts of programs they were already paid to create.
but yeah my main point of this thread was about the wars on credit. I am pretty certain we probably didn't pay for ww2 or Vietnam yet either.
I don't wish to unjustify what our military personnel sacrificed then and now.
