In our country we have usally pick our president depending on party. Each party has their own moral beliefs. One big issue is whether we should rise taxes or lower them. The democarts usally are the ones that want to higher taxes. Yes rising taxes gives more money for government programs. it also gives more money to the government for other uses. on the flip side the republicans believe in lowering taxes. depending on the type of tax, it will be less money out of each persons wallot. which means more money can go toward nessecity. it also gives people more money to spend on goods which will in the long run give more money to the government. it also would lower taxes to busness which would give the ability to expand the busness. in my last thread i asked what the unemployment rate. i went through the years as taxes were lowered more people were employed. which would lower the use of government programs. this would also give more money to pay for road work and other things. also no matter what your views are it would give the soldiers over in iraq more sucurity so we as america can protect and invest in protection for the men and women fighting for america.
