46. Bullshit

Go look at the economic indicators beginning with Reagan.What do the downturns all have in common? A Repub President, that's what. Every time an Dem is President, the economy grows. Every time a Gooper is president,the national debt skyrockets, the middle class suffers but the rich get richer. Clinton left office with a budget surplus which Bush squandered within three months of taking office.


Reagan was the starting point for the takeover of America by the rich and big business. Reagan proved to the GOP that they could get away with their crap - scaring voters into voting for them, blatant lying and corruption. When Reagan broke the back of the Air traffic controllers' union, then was the go ahead for more union busting. When the national debt was tripled under Reagan, that was the green flag for the GOP greedies, the war profiteers, the lobbyists and began the movement towards fascism. And when little Bush was installed in office by a corrupt Supreme Court, the course was set.
