they may theoretically back lower taxes, smaller govt, and national security. they may use the american flag and christian cross as symbols.
but in reality, they don't back any of these.
bush's so called tax cuts predominantly went to businesses as entitlements and did nothing to stimulate jobs, and the federal defecit created by them will increase property taxes, weaken the economy, and will in the long run cost americans more money. the tax cuts will cost tax payers more than they got back.
smaller govt, yeah right, bush expanded the federal govt's role and bueracracy in just about eveyr issue and went on to drastically cut state and local funding effectively weakening state govts.
bush cut funding to almost every aspect of national security from fire departments to police. he made the rest of the world hate us with his unilateral missions. and he costed the lives of many american soldgers.
there is nothing patriotic about the patriot acts and many other policies bush backs that block freedom of expression, privacy, legal rights, state's rights etc. he's desecrating the constitution.
the cross symbolizes more than christianity, it symbolizes inclusiveness, and tolerance for others as well. his cuts to poverty, cut of unemployment benefits, distribution of tax cuts to screw over the poor aren't compassionate. his backing of an amendment backing sodomy laws, gay marriage etc. aren't favored by several christians. his policies are neither tolerant or compassionate.
pointing out the hypocrisy of the conservative party is the democrats marketing strategy. and it's their best chance of beating bush.
