Re: Anti-Democrats in the Campaign Piss Me Off
Your relative volunteered for the service.
He can choose not to go where stationed, and take the penalty that
comes w/that. But, there isn't a draft anymore.
Price of oil...our #1 and #2 oil providers are CAnada and Mexico, not
the MIddle East.
As it is, the Democrats for 20 years have blocked efforts to drill for our
own oil offshore, in ANWAR, and in the interior of the nation. Hugo Chavez
and the Iranian leader are making dollars on each gallon around the world they
are part of, Exxon and Unocal, are making about 10 cents per gallon, the feds
and state are making about 80 cents per gallon....do the math.
As for your insurance issue with your friend, you leave out why they didn't
have insurance at all for years and years. They were given care, and that's
what the 'universal' healthcare plans are promising, just expanded existing
care providing. Not free. Your income and housing situation will still be
considered in how much your 'free' health care will be from the govt. Hope
she feels better.
The Supreme Court - yeah, that matters. We need a Supreme Court that rules on
the Constitution as it is, not legislating new laws as they would like to see it.
Is it Constitutional, that's their job, not how can we make a new law from the bench.
I can see why anyone would vote Democratic. I wouldn't bother to insult them. It's
just petty. But, it's also a one way ticket to higher taxes, a bigger federal govt.,
more rules, not less, and a foreign policy where your relative would likely be sent to
Darfur and Somalia or Pakistan, just as easily as Iraq or Afghanistan under a new
Democratic President bent on not being seen as a wimp by the world.
YOu do realize Bush expanded national care programs...yeah, I know that's not what we're
told by our media. He expanded programs to encompass more, not less. He took more people
off the tax rolls by removing their income levels from paying any taxes (Democrats taxed
social security income in the 90's). He expanded drug and prescription programs to make
it cheaper for more, which is why we now have Walmart and Ralphs offering lower cost drugs
for the first time. He increased military pay (before Iraq & Afghanistan). He increased
the cooperation between public and private assistance groups on purpose, before Katrina, because
private groups do things so much better than the govt. alone. Education, more minorities than
ever are in higher education facilites....and getting better reading scores in lower grades too.
Sorry, the govt. doesn't owe you or me anything, other than what the Const. deems it should -
security and freedom. Not a lower medical bill or a lower college bill or gas bill.
Vote for a Democrat if you want higher taxes (payroll, income, sales,property, etc.) down the line,
want the repeal of successful minor tax cuts that helped the entire tax paying population,
expanded regulation in all business, more abortions with pro-abortion judges and lawmakers and money,
and a bigger federal govt. employment roster - never to be fired employees doing less with more
money. Good times for all because we'll 'feel' better.
