Well, now we know. They are Borrow and Spenders rather than Tax and Spenders. GWB is making a ploy of fiscal responsibility now... only because of the falling poll numbers amongst conservatives. He still needs the votes, but if re-elected I agree with you. He will expand the power of Govt more than any President since LBJ. At least with a DemocRAT president and a Pubbie legislature the 'Tax Collectors for the Welfare State' will exercise some financial discipline. They are unable to say no to a drunken sailor Pubbie in the White house.
I used to buy the argument that if you vote for a 3rd party you are voting for a democrat. Maybe so. It is a difficult choice. But voting for the Socialist-Lites has only brought us more socialism and totalitarianism. For example, no one who believes in conservative values could ever give the Dept of Education even more money to carry out their Communist agenda of Goals2000, School-to-Work or No Child Left Behind. 6 million innocent children on ritalin and rising. Another 5 billion from GWB to carry out their evil agenda.
I haven't decided how to vote yet. Probably for Bush, but I need a stronger clothespin on my nose each 4 years. Does he really think that giving money to the NEA will buy him a single liberal vote?
I no longer have the slightest trust in the national Pubbies. They have betrayed that trust. I've not left the party. The party left me.
