No Iraq war.

No debt enhancing tax cuts

Maybe no 9-11 (Gore wouldn't have throw the Hart Rudman report in the trash)

No recession.

I think I just whacked about 10 trillion off the debt.

Elections do matter &the Bush election was a turning point.

Each & every one of you Bush voters helped cause the mess we are in.

No less than Obama. If Johnson had even a sliver of a chance he would have had my vote. 2016 may be his year if the idiots that were elected this time get the status quo (a great band). A third party might just have a chance for once.

Bush wasn't the only culprit in getting us in this mess. As long as politicians on both sides are indebted up to their armpits to special interests, you can count on mismanagement and corruption being SOP.
So which alternative to the two sides of the aisle did you vote for in '12?

<quoted text> No it did not. This is where your brainwashing kicks in. What it means is the government is not taking $30K more of your money. It does not belong to the government in the first place so the government cannot give it to you. To imply that the government does in fact own everything is a very dangerous road to travel.
You see the word 'give' is where you go wrong.
Your last sentence perfectly illustrates the mindset of the RealDave types and the wrong direction society is headed.

Victor Davis Hanse describes the liberal mindset perfectly:

'Equality of result -
Keen minds from Aristotle to Montesquieu and Tocqueville have lamented that the proverbial people sometimes prefer equality under authoritarianism to inequality accompanied by personal freedom.

As long as there was grinding poverty, the liberal agenda of “leveling the playing field” made sense enough — Social Security, disability insurance, the 40-hour work week, and Medicare.

But once modern mass production and consumption arose, energized by globalization and the entry of billions of new foreign workers into the equation, and high technology extended the appurtenances of the aristocracy to the poor (today’s ubiquitous smart phone is 100 times more versatile than yesterday’s $3,000 primitive suitcase cell phone), how could you keep promoting government-sponsored equality for the less well-off?

Ensure no one has to drive a Kia? Petition on behalf of those who do not yet have an iPad?

Weighing over 250 pounds, not rickets, is a national plague. Riots target sneaker stores, not food bins. Sandra Fluke naturally become the epitome of frustrated liberal-mandated equality. We are to believe that an upscale white law student, who by choice enrolls at a Catholic university, is deprived because her university will not pay for her condoms or abortion pills. Her cell phone no doubt costs more than a year’s supply of prophylactics. The result is psychodrama, not class struggle, as liberals strain to find ways in which America is Les Misérables rather than the Kardashians, plagued by this obsession to step in and make everyone (except themselves) the same.

Voters -
Romney almost forfeited the election when a video was leaked about his honest, though inexact, admission that 47% of Americans would, by needs, be unsympathetic to any agenda that cut spending and taxes, given their dependence on government “stuff.”

Borrowing money to pay for more entitlements for the liberal mind is good politics, killing two birds with the proverbial one stone. The less well-off are indebted to those who gave them subsidized food, health care, shelter, even cell phones and will vote accordingly to ensure the liberal political class remains in power.

And as deficits grow, the calls for higher taxes on those who “didn’t build that business” and are “fat cats” and never knew when they should stop profiting only increase. Liberalism is about power and influence, impossible without millions of dependent constituents.'

Yeah but we all know how 8 years of Bush turned out. You said yourself you voted for Clinton twice, what makes you think Gore wouldn't have continued down the same path as Clinton? Just think Flack debt free by 2013.

Really. You mean that we will never know what if? Wow, you are brilliant.

Gore would not have had the tax cuts.

Gore would have paid more attention to Hart Rudman. Who knows, could have stopped 9-11 as Hart Rudman pointed out our airport security weakness.

Gore never would have lied to go to war in Iraq.

That saved 4000 soldiers & trillions of dollars.

You Bush voters just can't handle the guilt that sits u[on your shoulders.
