    What did No Child Left Behind or Faith Based initiatives cost?

    New Medicare drug reform act? Yes that was one with which I didn't agree; but let's recap, $200 billion deficit versus over $1.8 TRILLION.....what were you saying about Bush and BIG Government?

    I don't think you would ever, nor will you ever, see me claim that Republicans are perfect. NO one is perfect; unless of course you are God.

    So what does all this have to do with me pointing out the FACTS regarding Bush's spending that I illustrated?

    One must wonder if you can read properly.

    Notice why I said democracy in America sucks. Keywords: uneducated, uninformed. Furthermore, in the thread I also stated mitigation to alleviate these two.

    I can provide a dictionary if you need it. History clearly shows you do need a dictionary on a regular basis to help you understand words such as "loan" and "bad" and "once."

    What irony coming from someone who can't answer even the most simplistic questions...your inability to comprehend exceeds your blatant and uninformed arrogance.....here let me try again:

    Where does Democracy NOT suck as much?

    So it begs another question; let's test you to see how informed you are; did you vote in the last election? If so, who did you vote for and why did you vote for them?

    Because you only pointed out Democrat politicians when it's both that know nothing about economics.

    And you'd have your answer if you actually read what I wrote. But I fully realize that's too damn hard for you.

    Hint: it has to do with the two terms I posted.

    So it begs another question; let's test you to see how informed you are; did you vote in the last election? If so, who did you vote for and why did you vote for them?
    Barr. Because I agree with more of his positions than Obama/McCain. Furthermore, a third party, or more accurately, a second party as the GOP/Dems are fundamentally the same thing, is the only real way we can get decent leadership.
