I think Republicans are incompetent, greedy losers whose only purpose is to get re-elected at any cost. They enjoyed complete political power from 2000 to 2006 and accomplished nothing good. Democrats had no say in anything. Conservatives appeal to the selfish side of Americans to get votes. The proof is in the pudding. They outright lied to us to justify invading Iraq. We were told to go shopping instead of being asked to sacrifice or help pay for the war by increasing taxes.
Conservatives have created a no-tax culture in America mostly for the wealthy. As a result, our infrastructure is falling apart. Have you driven on a highway, road or street recently? Our educational system, fire departments, police departments and public medical system are all feeling the pinch.
When Bill Clinton left office, he had balanced the budget with a surplus. Now we are trillions of dollars in debt. When George W. Bush was elected to office, oil was $26 a barrel. Now it is $135 a barrel and our economy is in the toilet. Nice record, huh?
