    We would have never been involved in two wars 10,000 miles away and special forces would have taken care of any trouble.

    There would have never been a Patriot Act.

    No new reduced tax rates would have been granted for the wealthy in 2001 and 2003

    The U S debt would be paid off and we would be running surpluses.

    Minorities and the poor would be getting free college or vocational training.

    We would have long since gone green and be energy independent.

    Regulation would have prevented a financial meltdown

    Woman's rights gained in the 1970's wouldn't be threatened.

    Other than that I can't think of any differences

    I pulled my time in 1957-58 and spent six years in the TN national guards. I was promoted three times and retired as a tank commander on an M-48 Med Patton Tank. Now if you would like to discuss not pulling duty:

    On May 27, 1968, George Bush Jr. was 12 days away from losing his student draft deferment, at a time when 350 Americans a week were dying in combat. The National Guard, seen by many as the most respectable way to avoid Vietnam, had a huge waiting list -- a year and a half in Texas, over 100,000 men nationwide. Yet Bush and his family friends pulled strings, and the young man was admitted the same day he applied, regardless of any waiting list.

    Bush's unit commander, Col. "Buck" Staudt, was so excited about his VIP recruit that he staged a special ceremony for the press so he could have his picture taken administering the oath (even though the official oath had been given by a captain earlier.)

    Bush and his allies have tried to deny this with several changing stories, but Bush himself admits lobbying commander Staudt, who approved him, and court documents confirm that close family friend and oil magnate Sid Adger called Texas Speaker of the House Ben Barnes, who called General James Rose, the head of the Texas Air National Guard, to get Bush in. Rose, who is now dead, told his friend and former legislator Jake Johnson that "I got that Republican congressman's son from Houston into the Guard."

    Staudt's unit, the 147th, was infamous as a nesting place for politically connected and celebrity draft avoiders. Democratic Senator Lloyd Bentsen's son was in the unit, as were both of Sid Adger's sons and at least 7 members of the Dallas Cowboys.

    Wow. The National Guard. Looks like you got out right as Vietnam started.
    The similarities between you and George Bush are astounding, asswipe.

    If Al Gore had won the election:

    We would have $100 light bulbs.

    Gas would be $10 bucks a gallon or more.

    We would have Cap and Trade and the price of everything would have gone through the roof.

    Yeah. Sure glad that bozo didn't win because everybody in the US would be in the poorhouse paying for his Global Warming bs.

    Hell. Even Tipper finally caught a fucking clue and kicked that loser to the curb.

    if algore had won, 9/11/2001 would be remembered today in America. But it would be remembered in Arabic, our national language.

    You don't learn very quickly, do you?
    There was no recount that showed Gore as the winner.

    If Gore had won we would be dealing with weekly terrorist attacks by al Qaeda and Gore promising to "bring the criminals to justice." We would still be in a recession. Gasoline would be a Euro-style $8/gal. Ghaddafi would still be in power in Libya. Saddam would still be violating UN sanctions and murdering his own people.
    And you would still be making excuses for an incompetent Democrat because FDR was the only one who would hire your daddy.
