Bush

I have realized that if things keep going the way they are I am going to have to start supporting bush less and less but i still will support him. I still supported him most if not all of the ways i supported before but with the way he is fighting the Iraq war and not telling JCoS to improve wat they are doing he is pissin me off.

You don't have to support him. He doesn't deserve that respect. Blind support is not a prerequisite for patriotism.

liberal?

When I voted for him in 2000 I didnt think he would be the most liberal president ever. He has spent twice as much as Clinton and has outspent Johnson even. I didnít expect him to go against every conservative value. Instead of getting rid of pork he has expanded it, and its getting old quick. I thought initially we would finally get rid of unnecessary spending, increase business incentives which creates jobs, and decrease bureaucratic government agencies. None of which has happened. If anything they all went the other way. He is a conservativeís nightmare. Liberals should love this guy.

Republicans and democrats are two sides of the same coin that remain in control from their centralized power.



Please support Instant Runoff Voting to promote more parties into the mix.

If Bush is the most liberal president ever, I am in fact, a llama. A llama who enjoys wearing leather and frolicking in sulfuric acid. I assure you, I am not.
