How am I supposed to support a president who:
- only got 30% of Americans to vote for him
Which is more than any other president in history in terms of sheer numbers, BTW. Is it his fault that people are too lazy to get off their a$$es and
What percentage of the vote did Badnarik get?
- Is in direct opposition to the Republican Party by advocating bigger and more wasteful government (oh, but he will give us the token idea of
saving some of our Social Security, or try to)
He wants to give the young worker an opportunity to invest some of their own money for a greater return. Good idea, IMO. What other president has done
that? I'm sure he will meet opposition from those who believe they have a claim on other people's lives and efforts, though.
- Will not look out for the people and the economy
See above example. Interest rates are low, inflation low, jobs are on the increase. The economy is steadily recovering from the one-two punch of the
internet bubble bursting and 9/11.
- Wants to continue the economic hold we have over the world
I notice that all the third world countries that we've given trillions in unsecured loans to, are not exactly tripping over themselves to pay us back
and thus break this "economic hold" we have on them. Nor are our trading partners easing tariff and other restrictions to help us lower our trade
- try to fix the budget (which could or could not happen), but will do nothing to help the trade deficit.
- He will not do anything to remove the IRS, the Federal Reserve, Dept of Education, etc, which is against the Constitution.
Oh, so he is breaking tradition in this? What other presidents have sought to abolish the institutions you list?
And just today, he vowed to reform tax law.
I say we need to defy him, deny him, speak out against him, remove our trust and support for the President in anything he does that is outside
his intended purpose (which is most everything).
I remove all ties with the Republican Party for failure to act according to their own principles, and for betraying the people and America.
People need to know of this. We need to squash this guy as soon as possible.
KJ, I don't know where to start. Your post sounds like the rantings of a Utah AM radio host. If you think it is fair to blame Bush for things he had
no hand in creating, then go right ahead. You will lose credibility, that's all. And when you end your post with statements like this
NOTE: Democrats, get your heads back out, and fix your corrupt party while you have the time.
don't be surprised if people label you a democrat instead of the libertarian you purport to be.
