    I don't see your point, progress is NOT more government control of our lives

    If you're offering a solution of "less government," it would be nice to see some examples, other than one's own interpretation of a young America. I offered the Natives as a possibility, because many native tribes had far less of the equivalent of a "federal government" than we do now. (Much of course, of the knowledge of these structures has been lost to history, but one can only assume that such structures were there to varying extents. True anarchy is impossible whenever the world's population is greater than one.)

    Two sides of the same coin. They have governed nearly identical to each other.

    ;That is something I have stated many times. The difference between them is the R and the D, not much else. Ross Perot once told me that if you take a couple of steps back, take off those deep red and blue colored glasses, stuff some cotton or put in some ear plugs to drown out the rhetoric, just watch how they govern you will find out there isn't really much difference. It is the rhetoric that is polar opposites, not the governing.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Exactly. I'm surprised no one has come up with an avatar that is part Bush and part Obama...oh wait.

Give me a break Obama has been cleaning up the mess bush and his war buddys made for over 5 years now.

    Lets see. According to the results, liberal posters think Obama is better and conservative posters think Bush is better. Didn't see that one coming. The real question is do either of these guys stack up against the greats in American history. The answer to that is no. They don't even measure up the the mediocre. Both of these guys rank near the bottom. Its been a pretty bad 50 years--Johnson, Nixon, Carter, Bush and Obama are all bottom ten

    Re: Bush vs Obama

    As a member of the Republican Party for over thirty years...I vote Obama. Unemployment is down compared to the last year of the Bush administration, as is the deficit, gas prices, and the stock market is up. The wars are winding down, as they should be. There is a lot that is happening that is much better than my own party had to offer. Why does it take a Democrat to out-Republican Republicans on their main issues when it comes to the economy and national defence? Hell, yeah, things are better now than when that idiot Bush was in office!
