I’m sure you heard the news – Bush was re-elected. I am no politico by any means. I even commented in an earlier post about how I don’t really care too much for either candidate. What really bothers me about the whole thing is that half the country sees nothing wrong. You can quote “who voted for what bill, etc.” to me and I would simply respond with a blank stare, but I can tell you this:
Bush senior in office – bad economy
Clinton in office – Good economy
Bush junior in office – bad economy.
Now, tell me why people voted for Bush?
The whole “we shouldn’t change presidents while in war” and “Kerry won’t continue the fight” is a load of bull. Guess what? The terrorist’s have TV’s too, and they know that the US didn’t want GB 4 years ago, and they don’t want him now. Surprise! They want him in office! It means that they will have their way with us for 4 more years. Good job folks.
As I said earlier, one man can’t change everything. But if no one can recognize that:
1. The US is 7 trillion in debt (and someone is going to need repayment at some point)
2. We’re selling each other out by shipping our work overseas
3. The price of the most precious commodity in the world, oil, (which we are highly dependant) is at astronomical levels.
4. None of the above are getting any better.
Then we are in a sad state of affairs.
