P, it certainly got my attention!
Do I think Bush will ultimately win in the end? No.
What do we Kerry/Edwards supporters need to do? Simple, but rather messy. All we have to do is pop enough Bush supporter's heads out of their butts ( and they are buried DEEP) and we should have this race won.
Swift Boat Vets For Un-Truth has about beat that dead horse long enough. Besides, how can Bush possibly explain away the fact that his enormous tax cuts have not stimulated the economy ( and anyone out there who thinks they were a good thing is a dumbarse)?
Since Bush took office he hasn't created 1 net job. NOT ONE!
Since he became President, the stock markets have lost more than 6.5 trillion in value, unemployment is up more than 40% and the once huge surplus we enjoyed is now an enormous deficit that is growing larger and larger with each passing day. Oh, and to put "icing on the cake", this administration has made it more difficult for low-income families (you know, the backbone of this great country) to get any number of government benefits. Those would be Medicaid, housing programs, school lunch programs, education, preschool programs, meal programs for seniors, home heating assistance....and on and on and on. All of this comes from so called "Compassionate Conservative" Christians. Right. Don't be fooled by the "wolf in sheeps clothing".
You know that even the White House has said that the second round of tax cuts is going to cost us around $50 billion a year for the next 10 years!
Hmm. Let's see. We have cut 36,000 seniors cut from meal programs. 532,000 from home heating assistance. 8,000 homeless children cut off from education programs ( and this is from our "No Child Left Behind" President.). Our seniors are cutting their prescriptions in half to stretch their meds so they can eat! $50 billion a year for 10 years could help in relieving our seniors ( most from the "Greatest Generation") of their costly monthly prescription bills and implementing a prescription drug plan that would benefit them. No. Not gonna happen because we NEED these tax cuts. We have millions of children with NO health insurance coverage. Nil. That $50 billion a year for the next 10 years couldn't possible knock a dent in reducing the # of children not covered.
Well, it could but it isn't now because we NEED these tax cuts.
Under Bush the military and homeland security get more and everything else gets C-U-T! Granted we need security for the homeland and a functioning military (just like we need allies in this war on terror and not the lack of respect this President is perpetuating among once formidable allies) but we also need our preschool programs, our school lunch programs for low income families, after school programs to keep our children off the streets, child care for low income families where both spouses work. We need the prescription drug plan implemented OR let our seniors go where they may to get CHEEPER drugs. We need health care for every single underprivileged child in America. We can do this. We could do it if we had a government that wasn't by big business, for big business, and of big business. Our President is more concerned with repaying his BIG campaign donors than taking care of his constituency. "We the people" are not his priority.
The more I learn about this Administration the more I get
mad. Just thinking about the injustices in our country during the rule of this "privileged son of a bitch" really frosts me!
So all I can say is "Wake up America! The wolf is at the door! "
