Does anyone even mention the “Contract With America” anymore? Trust me, if the shoe was on the other foot, todays media would be all over the Democrats asking, ” Just how has that contract turned out?

The mantra of Republican ideology since the days of Reagan has been “less government, more prosperity”. Twenty years ago through ONE month ago, you could not have had a conversation with a Republican about the economy without them saying “there’s too much government regulation/involvement in our lives. If government gets out the way, businesses can do what they need to do to keep the economy growing.”

For the past two years, the Democrats have had a slim majority in Congress. They can’t even pass anything strong enough to override a Presidential veto. Prior to this time frame, the first six years of Dupya’s Presidency was controlled by Republicans who had a decided majority in Congress. They passed bills that were shaped by their ideology of “less government, more prosperity” at their leisure. The only tool Democrats had  against the Republican majority during that time was the use of the filibuster. To take this even further, Congress was also controlled by Republican’s during the entire 8 years of the Clinton Administration.

Today, Republicans (though the minority in Congress) don’t even have to use a filibuster on Capitol Hill. They don’t need it. They have enough votes at anytime to vote down anything the Democrats bring up. They have passed legislation that has given tax breaks that along with the war in Iraq, has driven the budget deficit to record proportions. The Bush Administration has put political appointees in every administrative position in all government agencies that work to prevent the proper functioning of these agencies. The following has been examples of the Bush Administrations efforts to deregulate the federal government without getting congress to pass any laws:

The mantra of less government regulation has been the drum that has been beat on by Republicans since Reagan. THIS WAS THEIR CONTRACT WITH AMERICA! Now they are saying that more regulation is needed and that it is just as much the Democrats fault as it is theirs that the country is nearing a “Great Depression”; but we’re not in a recession. WTF?

Even with a screw up performance tonight by Palin , McCain will still be within sticking distance of beating Obama. Why? Because Obama’s black and quite a bit of the voting public just can’t get past that. No matter the train wreck the McCain/Palin ticket is.

WTF are people thinking? HOW COULD JOHN MCCAIN EVEN BE CLOSE TO ANY DEMOCRAT OPPONENT IN ANY POLL NOT RUN OR FUNDED BY A REPUBLICAN THINK TANK? I’m at a loss of words when I read or view news reports that show Obama and McCain are in a tight race. It’s absolutely scary.

It is inconceivable that there are white/black/hispanic/asian voters out there who have been negatively affected by their beloved Republican Parties agenda of “Get Rich or Fuck the Country Up Trying”, who are still EVEN THINKING of voting for ANOTHER Republican to follow Dupya. Let alone those who are lifetime democrats who are also in the same boat.

Gotta deal with it though. Majority rules in this country. Always have. Though the majority is clearly full of fools who can’t stand blacks so much, they are willing to F their children’s future up because they can’t bring themselves to vote for a

Black Guy.

Obama fist bump:

A new age of leadership

George Bush Chest bump

This is not cool

This is not right

This is should NEVER be done

As you can see, at the very least, the Obama Administration will be a lot “smoother” then the Bush Administration…

Come to think of it, anyone else’s would be more affective.
