Repost with some edits (less naughty words):
I'm really sick and tired of people bringing up this awesome tax cut. Thats bull shit. I'm a 20 year old kid and i paid in about $1000 in Fed Tax (NOT FICA or anything like that) this past year and i got back about $300. In my first year of working in 2000 (UNDER CLINTON!) i paid in about $600 in Fed Tax and got back $300! My mom, who is a single mother and a small business owner got tax refunds every year under clinton. Guesswhat she does under Mr Bush. Pays! How the f*ck does this help anyone who really deserves it?
I have already gotten started with my Bush bashing so watch out. the Bush admin has to realize that the US is NOT the only country that matters in the world. his go it alone attitude is for shit. The United States is about 270,000,000 or so strong, whereas the world is arond 5 BILLION. we are about 5.4% of the entire world population, yet we act as if we are the only people who matter.
Bush as a person seems like a decent guy. He seems like a guy you could go have a beer with at the end of the day. He seems like a guy who would work at the same factory his entire life, own that Chevy pickup truck, have kids and a wife, buy the boat, go to the same bar after work every night for a few with the boys but still be home in time for dinner. Not a bad guy. However in my hometown i know this type very well, all likeable guys, but definitely NOT someone i want running this damn country. Did you see the press conference a few weeks ago? Did you see what a bumbling idiot he was?
"Mr. President can you think of any mistakes you and your administration has made in the war on iraq"
"Ohh,, well.......umm,.... *looks down*...well jeez, heh i wish you wuld have given me that question before the press conference so i could have prepared for it..i'm not sure of the answer i'll have to get back to you on that"
Letseee without thinking i can give you a few answers mr. stupid:
"lying to the american public was probably a step in the wrong direction"
"perhaps we should have gone in with a bit more support from other nations"
"a little more preparation could have been useful, i guess we weren't as prepared to pacify iraq as we were to conquer it"
"Maybe if we would have went into Iraq for the right reasons this wouldn't have been as big of a mess as it's turned into, had i not came into this office with the forgone conclusion of ousting saddam hussein things would have happened a bit differently, and we would have lost over 700 american servicemen and counting"
Can you ever imagine bush saying anything close to that?
ANnnnnnnnnd don't get me started on the issue of gay marriage, and all this christian bullshit that has come out of this administration. Aren't we a society that moves forward. Last i checked we are a shit ton different in 2004 then we were in 1904. The main thing that pisses me off is that Republicans in general think they have the right to press on us whatever beliefs they think are "ideal" and to hell with common sense. Our culture is ever changing, we live in a world now that has expanded exponentially in the past 10 years due to changing technology and ways of new thinking. This old world style of goverment (that we can thank ronald reagan for showing us doesn't work...look at the the economic recession experienced in 1991-94 immediately following his presidency, Bush Sr can think him for not being re-elected) is not going to take us through the next 10 years.
I'm not saying that liberals or moderate liberals have all the right answers, no one does. bottom line is however that people with open minds and open hearts are more likely to accept new ways of thinking and believing and doing things, then people who continuosly shut their eyes to the outside world and think any change is wrong. fuck that. Do YOU wanna live in a world who's boundaries shrink rather then expand. Would you rather accept people with open arms or closed? Would you rather do the same thing the same way for your entire lifetime. DO
you want to be bored all the time. If you answered yes to all those questions then vote for bush.
