Its amazing how the republicans have brain washed Americans today. the guy in the video explains how 'historical history` yada yada yada, or something like that.

well. history would tell me, that Democrat after Democrat have lead the nations econmoy to storm. Clinton was so close to a surplus during his tenure, if he could have served another term, the surplus would have been there, and the debt paied off by now.

and time and time again, has a democrate been the only party to properly manage the economy. i want this video post to look at american history again, starting with great depression, and tell me, how did the story end?

Also! Reganomics worked for a lot of people, but it was a swiss cheese type thing -- a lot of smaller groups were screwed over. The trickle down effect doesn't work either -- in the 80s, rich people used their tax breaks and invested in foreign markets. I would really love a tax plan that maybe didn`t give the upper class such big breaks, but also gave the lower class a bigger one. Everyone knows that those tax breaks help people in the lower class afford the necessities, not the luxuries.

If someone could develop a capitalistic tax plan that benefited the economy as well as every socioeconomic level, they deserve a freaking peace prize or something.

1) Indpendent studies have confirmed that most big media is pretty neutral, but has a corporate bias.

2) I seriously dislike Bush, but the economy is not his fault. It's dumb people who took out loans they couldn`t afford.

3) Tax breaks are great, but McCain tax breaks suck. $300 for lower class, $1000 for middle class, and $2600 for upper-middle class and a $270000 for the upper class. On the other hand, Obama`s sucks too. $1000 for the lower class, $1300 for middle class, and upper-middle class $2200, but upper class will be taxed an additional 700000 a year. WTF??? My poor college status says that I want a bigger tax break under Obama, but the economy is such crap right now that foreign investors are coming in and buying up American stocks and property. By taking away the money from the upper class, we`re reducing the chance of them also investing in American businesses. These are also the same people that own the companies that employ Americans.

Obama is way too Socialist for my taste. As DuckBoy87 put it, Socialism is great on paper, but it sucks when you apply it in the real world.

That being said, I'm not voting for McCain. I was hoping for Romney, someone who would have been much stronger with the economy. I have many problems with McCain on varying issues, and I felt that his choice for VP was extremely poor.

To me, you don`t vote for a pile of crap just because it stinks less than the other pile of crap. I only vote for someone who I feel is capable of running the country. This year I`m just going to vote for state/local elections.

Here`s hoping to having better candidates to choose from in 2012.
