Gore and his ilk are elitist and think they know best how to run your life and have no problem enforcing it through tax or whatever means necessary.
The Clinton-Gore admin was a crock. Worlwide terrorism went ballistic under their watch because Bill was too busy doing interns to care. He could have had Bin Laden several times but didn't have the balls to do anything. Give Bush credit for at least taking on the bastards. And don't get me started on the economy. Have you ever seen unemplyment so low for so long as the last seven years? Tax cuts work. If Clinton were President now the media would be having orgasms over what a great President he is and what a genius on the economy he is.
We don't need Gore or anyone like him for President. We need someone who will get government off our backs and let freedom reign.
Where do I start basketballboy,
First paragraph, the scary, spooky elitist liberal "tax you to death" threat. Will taxes go up, maybe, why, many reasons like burgeoning retired baby boomers [largest group of new retirees in history], infrastructure that has been ignored [like Air Traffic Control systems that are choking] and even rebuilding the very depleted Military. Will taxes go up on energy, that is up to Congress.
Worldwide terrorism during 1993-2000 was only 1/3 what it has been 2001-2007 according to GlobalSecurity.ORG [the gold standard for understanding that information].
The Economy, please, let us get you started. During Clinton/Gore we had a Surplus Budget, a National Debt of $4Trillion carried over from Reagan/Bush1, $2Trillion in Trade Deficits, low inflation, low unemployment and the biggest stock market gains in HISTORY [3,300-11,200].
Under Bush Economics we have ADDED $5.5TRILLION to the National DEBT which costs $600Billion annually in interest, ADDED $5TRILLION to the International Trade Deficit, and shipped 6.5Million jobs overseas and brought in 1.3Million H1Bs.
As for the TAX CUTS [$600Billion], there is ZERO indication they have caused our growth economy. More likely the $5Trillion Deficit Spending injected into the economy has more to do with it. Also, the churn caused by the Housing Bubble, Stock market churn, International Investment, deflated dollar [worst against the British Pound in 50 years and worst against the Euro EVER] might have something to do with it.
As for getting government off our backs, we have more government, and more intrusive government now than at any time in our history, all done by a Republican President, with a Republican Congress and a Conservative SCOTUS.
