What's all the fuss about being liberal and liberal policies? The conservative approach seems not to be working so well. With the Clinton liberals in charge we had peace, prosperity and hope for the future. With the Bush conservatives we have Americans at each others' throats and countries that hate us more than at any time in history. Let the caved-in economy speak for itself. Oh, and let's not forget about that great democracy Bush started in Iraq. We won't go into detail about the thousands of lives lost, the billions of dollars squandered and the haplessness felt by most of us.
Banning medical marijuana, flag burning, gay marriage, assisted suicide and dozens of other conservative smoke screens has done nothing to keep people in their homes or to comfort grieving families who lost a son or daughter in Iraq.
The conservative approach has been a disaster. Our country cannot afford another four years of failure; we need change now.
