Funny, the economy hasn't been this bad since George W. Bush's FATHER sent the economy into the toilet!
Bush’s “leadership” has given us gasoline at about $4.07/gallon and eggs at $2.69/dozen, plus a huge increase in unemployment, the U.S. being caught up in TWO horrible wars, and the stock market going "into the tank".
But these things aren't really that important. Just ask the Republicans. They’ll tell you the real problem: it must be... wait for it... wait for it... gay people!(Or maybe the big issue this week is that someone you don’t know got an abortion.)
Remember back before Republicans forced OVERT religion into the political arena for their own selfish, political purposes?
Before that time, Americans often had a more civil exchange of opinions about issues like: prices for eggs, bread and gasoline, having enough jobs in America, building and maintaining highways, etc.
After Republicans succeeded in turning many people's attention to abortions and gays, we've had a complete disaster in the U.S.
During the Bush years, things have gotten worse and worse for most Americans, while the Republican EVERY-MAN-FOR-HIMSELF policies and warmongering have bankrupted the nation, both economically and socially. Their pseudo-religious zeal has even led to blatant lies to the American people (“Iraq has WMDs,”“Mission Accomplished,” etc.) while they advocated that America should TORTURE prisoners, then denied doing it.
Oh... and by trying to politicize religion, they’ve cheapened the APPARENT value of sincere spirituality.
The festering wound of the Republican party (which CLAIMED to represent “family values”) is the fact that they have had a huge number of sex scandals lately, some of them related to homosexual sex and/or sex in public bathrooms.
If for no other reason than to force them to re-examine their tactics and priorities, it's time to VOTE THE REPUBLICANS OUT!
