    The doom is already here. Just because it has not yet harmed you does not mean that your turn will not come. Given that you believe it is a good thing I wish twice as much of it upon you as upon the rest of us.
    You don't live here by yourself.

    If all three branches of government approve a law, and the majority of the voters approve of those approvals, then you gotta live with it. That's what being part of a Republic is all about.

    Why do you hate America?

    Backed away? What are you talking about. I said I would eliminate it. That's the solution.

    Actually they are much better at politics than Dems. Reps are very good at messaging, branding, and enacting their ideas. Overall their ideas tend to be a bit detrimental and Americans get tired of them. Democrats are the weak willed, mealy mouthed do-nothings but are generally better stewards of the country. Dems rarely win on their good ideas. Dems win on the bad ideas/actions of Republicans.

    You really need to come to terms with your misconceptions.



    False. See above
    What is false is your understanding of the economy and the economic numbers. GDP Grew from 9.9 trillion to 14.4 trillion in the 8 years of Bush, the highest increase in GDP in history. We had a booming economy with the Republicans in charge from 2003-2006 as BEA.gov and BLS. will show you. What continues to be quite telling is the reality that we had a 10.6 trillion dollar debt on January 21, 2009 and it is 17.1 trillion now. That is reality, a reality that you want to ignore

    There is nothing that I have posted that is false but doubt most liberal Obamabots will understand that nor do they want to.

    nonsense


    Look where GDP was when Bush left office. "Highest increase in GDP in history" my ass. He had the greatest collapse in GDP since Hoover.

    But growth rate does not equal overall growth, just the % change.
