    Do you think McCain can bring us out of this huge deficit by 2013 as promised?

    No, do you? Trickle down has never worked or third world nations wouldn't be third world nations.

    "This is the Bush-McCain economy. Senator McCain may have forgotten, but President Bush already tried his economic policies and the results are not good. We have just been through a business cycle in which the wage of the typical worker and the typical working family fell. This is the first time that has ever happened."

    Third world nations? If trickle down worked, we would have seen it in the past 8 years HERE.

    Especially since Billy subscribed to it before Georgie, and George Sr. before Billy and Reagan before George Sr... well, you can see where this is going.

    Junior didn't invent the trickle down economy, he just perfected it's exploitation and corruptibility.

    And who was before Reagan? Nobody because that was one of the pillars of Reaganomics. Unfortunately for Reganomics to work you also need a decrease in spending. Do you think because you say a democrat did it means that democrats are going to back down? Trickle down can not work with outsourcing. McCain plans to continue the trickle down and in crease the deficit.

    Uh... Carter, Nixon, Johnson and even JFK all believed that the best way to help the lower classes was to help the upper classes provide them jobs.

    That is my point. This struggle is not between the left and right of the political spectrum, it is between the up and down of the greed ladder. The 'haves' in this country haven't cared who won a presidential election since Roosevelt. Since then, they have owned both parties.

    The sooner we quit bitching amongst ourselves over the spoon-fed ideologies of both parties, the sooner we can restore some semblance of fairness to the marketplace.
