if you don't like Bush, then don't be a carpet muncher! ha ha JK I am a prochoice Democrat and cannot stand Bill Clinton who is supposed to be a major Rock Star. I respect the fact he used his "divine" Rock Star influence to negotiate the return of the two journalists from North Korea back to the US. Maybe that makes up for whatever else the man has done. Don't even start with Bush I II and now III and what my fellow Democrats and progressive Greens have to say about the war debts. I respect the fact that Bush II put up a strong front to stand up against Terrorism. A symbolic war has to be fought symbolically, so that part was done right. But as for the real costs of cleanup from all the damage caused, we have yet to see any leadership from either Party take that on honestly. Neither Party is really fit to lead. As for the real work to end poverty, oppression and both the post- and after- issues related to war, the Democrats will have our hands full with all the social programming that needs to be shifted out of federal govt and back to the states, nonprofits, businesses, and parties to organize through schools per district. All the restitution owed for the corporate abuses by BOTH major parties, if credited back to Taxpayers, would fund jobs and programs fixing all these messes. IF we hold our Party leaders responsible for the TRUE costs and quit playing games. Pretending we can afford to blow millions on campaigns, instead of investing in solving the problems we already have now. The money raised should be invested in real sustainable solutions, not empty campaign promises that don't fix any of these ongoing problems! Localized ownership and self-govt will be the solution that allows Democrats to fulfill the mission of reforming the Prison and Immigration system to a Restorative Justice approach, where the focus is on corrections, prevention, and restitution. So the Republicans and Conservatives/Libertarians who believe in Constitutional limits on govt will have to work closely with Democrats who believe in all-inclusive social programs if we are going to achieve both without conflicting agenda. It can be separated by Party so both political beliefs/agenda can be supported by followers by voluntary participation and funding (and quit fighting over control and abuses of govt to force policies on people against their beliefs). As a Prochoice Democrat I believe in separating funding and policies, so the party members take direct responsibility for managing their own agenda and beliefs, and quit imposing on each other when the parties CLEARLY do not believe in the same things. They should be treated as equal Religious denominations, and allowed to fund their own programs without conflict or imposition through govt, or discrimination by creed.
