In the final count, no, there is a dimes thickness of difference in the two parties. Both of them are responsible for our state of affairs. Fourth amendment violations began to alarm some of us during the Bush admin. And have continued and ratcheted UP during Obama's administration. Bush took office with a 5 trillion dollar debt and doubled it to 10. Obama took office with a 10 trillion dollar debt and is on schedule to double it to 20. Federal aid programs have increased right on through Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama. Is somebody here going to tell me that if the next president is a republican, Surveillance of US citizens is going to be reigned in, the ND is going to be slashed and federal aid rolls are going to be rolled back to their guru Reagan's numbers. Is he going to bring mfg. back to the states, or do something to close the widening income gap or kick the lobbyists out of Washington? HE'LL NO. There is no damn difference.
