Easy:
ANWR - Eisenhower

Mining in the National Parks Act - Nixon

New Mexico Pit Rule - Richardson/Martinez

Farm Bill - Nixon

Graduated income tax
Auto Company Bailout/Government Motors - Bush

Seems you conservatives can't decide what you want. All those things except the pit rule have their origins in conservative repub administrations.

But aside from that you didn't answer the question. How have those things on your list--most of which have been around for years--stifled the economy?

Wow! You are really making your fellow liberals look bad with your complete ignorance of history. They'll still stand with you, of course, because liberals don't really care about history, liberals care about ideology.

ANWR was signed into law by President Jinny Carter.

The Mining in the Parks Act was sponsored by Democrat Senator Lee Metcalf of Montana, and was signed into law by Gerald Ford in 1976 (Nixon resigned in 1974, and had nothing to do with it..the law wasn't even introduced until 1975) Gerald Ford is NOT considered a "conservative Republican" by anyone except far left liberals.

Farm Bill - Franklin Delano Roosevelt That you laid the the Farm Bill at Nixon's feet is ridiculous. But if you want to give Nixon credit for something Democrats consider to be one of Roosevelt's finest pieces of legislation, I'm sure he'll take it.

New Mexico Pit Rule - Democrat legislature and signed into law by Democrat Richardson. Democrat legislature refuses to repeal it. That you'd even suggest Susana Martinez had anything to do with it is laughable. Running against the Pit Rule was part of her campaign.

Graduated Income Tax is a socialist method of redistributing wealth.

The auto bailouts were conceived by the Bush administration, I was against them and said so. But Obama actually expanded and implemented them, and I was still against them.

And yes, I DID answer the question. You wanted examples, you got them. Now you've changed the question. You liberals always do that when confronted with facts.

Oh, and that graduated income tax? Lincoln? Baahaaahaaahaaahaaahaaahaa! None of the Civil War income taxes were ever put into operation. One was even declared unconstitutional. Regardless, the Civil War income tax laws had EXPIRATION dates, as they were designed to raise funds to fight the civil war. I thought you liberals believed in "pay as you go" wars? At least you said so when you were opposing George W. Bush.

It wasn't until Democrat Woodrow Wilson came along that the current, permanent, income tax system got it's start.

I see the liberals have already noted my posts to be "spam", "incendiary", and "nuts"...

Not surprising at all, since liberals absolutely hate facts. And when facts are used to back up the arguments against their emotional ideology, they only thing left for them to do is call the people who oppose them nuts.

Farm Bill--fully supported by every president since FDR, INCLUDING EVERY REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION. Let's see....Eisenhower, Nixon, Ford, REAGAN, Bush, GWB.

Examples? You gave a list. Do you have any idea how those things on your list might stifle the economy? Some of them have been around for years, through economic booms and busts. So.....how?

Abraham Lincoln created the graduated income tax. Was he a socialist?

You extreme right wing nuts don't even fit in with your fellow, traditional conservatives.

That doesn't change the fact that YOU were wrong on most every point. I'm sure you made your fellow libs proud with your attempts at "disinformation".

So, are you ready to admit you were wrong? Or were you just purposely lying?

I think it's funny how you dumb conservatives can't see that your leaders are just as responsible for many of the things you hate as anyone else is. Just because you're gullible enough to believe their spiel......that's the epitome of stupidity, which further reinforces that.........."all conservatives are not stupid people, but most stupid people are conservatives."

No. The real stupidity is that people like you vote for people who you KNOW are going to screw you, because they tell you so right to your face. Buying your vote with your own tax dollars is a pretty cheap way for people like Barack Obama to stay in power.

At least MY boyz (and girlz) are right most of the time, instead of wrong ALL the time.

Liberals have been selling out the United States Constitution for a hundred years. They'll do anything, lie, cheat, or steal, to "progress" their filthy agenda. The are afraid of true freedom, so they vote for people who they know will control them. They are miserable people, so they want to make everyone around them miserable too.

Or, according to Occam's razor, you could just be nuts.

Hello, I just sold my house in Cd.Juarez and moved to good USA but guess what? I ended up in the most unemployable city of the SW. I'm running out of what little money I had and I am thinking of simply pushing a cart of the homemade tortillas I make at night. I just started thinking about it and wonder if there's a future for a mobile TORTILLA STAND. If you see my colorful non-political tortilla cart would you stop by for a sample and a chat, free choice of delicious salsas included. I depend on you.
