    The FACTS are in.

    President Bush inheireted a slumping economy, not only did he turn it around, but the economy achieved historical high points in many, categories, and was doing excellent a large majority of categories, due to PRESIDENT BUSH's policies.

    And that sucess story has run on for over six years now, unprecedented length.

    That's because you cannot look at the GDP as the primary indicator of economic growth or stability. GDP is increased by military spending, which has gone up exponentially since Bush took office. It is also increased by inflation, which whether you like to believe it or not, is destroying the value of the dollar. Our dollar is worth about 4 cents compared to the dollar of 1920.

    YES, the economy has seemingly strengthened, but WE BORROWED TRILLIONS of dollars from the Chinese and the Japanese... all that shit is gonna come back and kick the economy fatly in the ass when we are asked to repay the debt.

    Don't kid yourself, this country is steering toward economic oblivion.

    I don't know where you live nor what color glasses you wear, but there is NO economic upturn anywhere in my state, Bush inherited a surplus, but after the total rape of our industrial complex that we allowed by OUR ENEMIES during the previous THREE ADMINISTRATIONS it's amazing that our dollar didn't drop to sub zero levels, and our wages didn't drop past 1970s levels................we can not continue basing our economy on paper nor continue allowing our enemies to produce everything including the rags on our backs AND WE MUST GET BACK IN THE GAME.....................steel and textiles being the first things to reissue.....................:eusa_whistle:


    AND I'm really really disappointed that Canada had foresight enough to beat us hands down into the industrial hemp production!!!!!!!!!:eusa_wall:

    Pure propaganda.

    The truth:
    http://www.oregonindependent.com/node/72

    Written by a REAL republican, not a fake neocon war mongering fiscal liberal, bent on rewarding his Skull and Bones buddies, while trashing all the other americans with a weak dollar and $3 a gallon gasoline.

    Don't buy the snake oil these charlatans are selling. It's bad for you.

    Its true that Bush did inherit an economy that was sliding into recession.

    However, the economy did not recover because of Bush. To ascribe the success of the economy to Bush is to greatly underestimate the American people.

    Yep we borrow from the very people who need us to purchase their cars, clothing, electronic's, and lead paint toys! And some of these Asians countries desperatly need the US to supply them with food. So it seems that all are depended on each other in some way. So if our dept is ever called, I say no soup for you. :rofl:

    See that little baby you are holding in your avatar? That person is going to pay back the more than $3 trillion borrowed by Bush and Congress during the past seven years. What a nice gift to future generations. And what did we get for $3 trillion? Weak service based 2 to 3 percent economic growth, and lots of new Wal-Mart Super Centers, paying non living wages, and selling us Chinese stuff we used to manufacture. And not just cheap discount store things, but also computers, appliances, power tools, car parts, and other items from more sophisticated manufacturing. Meanwhile we pay the Chinese interest on our debt, sapping our strength further, as they steal our intellectual property such as software and film. Then we pay hundreds of billions per year to militarily contain the lunatics of the world while the Chinese do nothing to help, and in fact invest the billions they got from us to upgrade their nuclear weapns, modernize their conventional forces, and invest in the infrastructure of our enemies such as Iranian oil and gas. Back in 2001, we could have picked the first person to walk by on the street, given him $3 trillion, and he could have generated more economic sanity and growth than Bush and the Congress.

    Based on what? Here in MA there are phenomenal amounts of foreclosures and there have been for over four years. Businesses are closed down or swallowed up by comglomerates and investment firms. The amount of people on unemployment is surpassed by the amount of people who no longer qualify for benefits and now live outside of their means.

    I am guessing you are working and living comfortably, how many homeless live in your state? How many poor on welfare and SSI? How many working class striggling to make ends meet?
