NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Last thing we need is another Bush in office!

Come to think of it, the economy was rather good the last time we had a Clinton in office...

Not at the end, we were going into a resession when Clinton left office. Also had the internet bubble break at the end, he got out just in time not to take the fall! Its been long enough that people forget this.

I do not agree with a lot of what Bush has done, but he did reverse the downward spiral we were in.

Bush also is not responsible for the problem with mortgages and people not being able to pay for the houses they never did have the money for. It was corrupt companies talking people into buying over their heads with the HOPE they could afford the regular mortgage in the future. These banks and scam artist "mortgage companies" then took the money and ran!

Never buy if your mortgage is MORE THAN 25% of your income. I sold real estate for many years and could see this coming, but house prices were going up so fast, people thought they would make money on the house before the interest kicked in, or they would get BIG RAISES that would offset it. They assumed... which the old saying holds true... when you assume it makes an ass of u or me. It made an ass out of buyers who lost their house and banks who now have homes to unload at lower prices! Great time now if you have money to buy undervalued houses!

True. So true. But the last time my dad got a raise/bonus was in 1999, Clinton's last year in office. Coincidence? I think not. How can you expect to live on 1999 dollars in 2008?

All Bush cares about is this stupid war. Bush cares nothing about us. In my young voting years, he has made me hate the Republican party. It's the very same reason I voted for Governor Granny. Am I regretting that? Probably. But no Democrat can do worse to me than this idiot we have in office now. I want a Democrat in office next and I could care less if it's a woman.

I'm with you on that. Again, NAFTA has a lot to do with that. We need to try to buy American and find ways to keep companies in the US! Also, get rid of NAFTA.

Many companies have given raises, it depends on the state and the industry!

If you believe that, enjoy more of your income being gone (stolen by govt)! If you think not getting a raise is bad, try living with them taking even more of your money. (Hillary and Obama are the most socialist!) I feel that most federal taxes are unconstitutional and I can make better use of my money than the govt!

I dislike both the DEMS (who want to give money away, that they do not have to give (socialism)) and the REPUBS who are not standing up against Bush. I vote for the person, not the party!

If I had my way, there would be NO PARTIES and each Rep would have to "represent" the desires of the people they are working for. I get so pissed at party politics where a member of the house or senate is bullied and bought so they will follow, like lemmings, the desires of their party leaders or an industry who has bought them off!

We have gotten so far away from the govt of our forefathers that all we see is corruption on both sides!!!!

It is Nice to read intelligent thoughout posts on political matters. Unlike those you see on the other board. See Ron Paul Thread: People calling each other idiots and morons and such.


This board is so much better! Smile

Wouldn't it be great if the president was of one party and the VP was of the other. Talk about checks and balances!

I thought we already had that system in place! Perhaps we need to consider your suggestion!

Supposedly just checks and balances amongst the 3 branches of government. George Washington did not want to be king, right? The presidental office should be under a lot more scrutiny.

Or the rules will have been changed by then, and it'll be Maggs for President, Schwarzenegger for VP!
