    I have the list in chronological order. And Obama is terrible so his place makes sense for more reasons than chronological order
    Republican - Conservative government is the answer

    We've uselessly cut a million public sector jobs since the assclown repups came to town. What happened to trickle-down? More like torrential up since the 1980's. What about that $1 creating $1.7? Reaganomics = $17 trillion TAD

    Firstly, new growth in population should pay for itself without any increase in tax rates.

    Secondly, technology is absolutely useless unless it makes things easier and less costly to perform so if technology is increasing the budget, something's wrong. Technology is great for businesses and starting new businesses - running a government should be simple, keep it that way.

    JFK's agenda was good. He hated communist and socialist. Brother RFK was probably the biggest anti communist war hawk that ever lived.

    But JFK was young and a weak President and the Soviets knew it. JFK refused to listen to his elders who were more experienced than he was. He kept making stupid decisions.

    In 1960 the American people went to the polls and the issues weren't the economy or civil rights but who was more anti communist, Nixon or Kennedy ? JFK was elected.

    The Kennedy Democrats of today are known as neoconservatives.

    BTW: Do you know why LBJ ended up sending American combat ground forces to Vietnam ? He said that he believed that if he didn't RFK would call LBJ weak on stopping Communist expansion and would challenge him for the Democrat nomination in 68. Remember, back in 65 RFK was still a big time warhawk.

    He did a terrible job.

    He lost 3,000 Americans on 9/11, then he topped that by losing 4,500 US troops in Iraq which was no threat to the USA. That's just the dead, we'll be taking care of the wounded for a long time.

    Sorry, you get no reaction from me about a million public sector jobs being lost. There's probably another million, at least, that could be eliminated. Has your country collapsed with fewer 9-5ers taking in big bucks to **** with your lives?

    If we stop developing tech, we will stall, which we don't know how to do. We are an exponential curve. Fission to fusion. F-35. Looming pension disasters and state and municipal bankrupcies building for decades. Skirmishes all over the world. Worldwide bankrupcies.

    Technological research used to focus on making us stronger, able to do more important things easier, help us live longer, etc. Now, far too much of research is wasted on developing things that keep us on our fat asses longer, wasting our lives.

    He didn't tell muslims to be stupid enough to respond with violence when we call them violent. Sadam Husein was a threat to the innocent people he used chemical weapons on
