Part  1
In  just 16 months..  Remember the election in  2006? 
Thought you might like to read the  following: 
A little over 16  MONTHS ago: 
1) Consumer confidence stood at a  2 1/2 year high; 
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a  gallon; 
3) The unemployment rate was  4.5%. 
Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006  we have seen: 
1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2)  The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon; 
3)  Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase); 
4) American  households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock  and mutual fund losses); 
5) Americans have seen their home  equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars; 
6) 1% of American homes  are in foreclosure. 
America voted for change in  2006, and we got it! 
Remember  it's Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with  what's handed to him.  
Quote  of the Day........"My  friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the  world.  I hope you'll join with me as we try to change  it." -- Barack Obama 
Part  2:
Whether  Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics  enlightening and amazing.    
Taxes under Clinton  1999                    Taxes  under Bush 2008  
Single making 30K - tax  $8,400            Single making 30K - tax $4,500 
Single  making 50K - tax  $14,000         Single  making 50K - tax $12,500 
Single  making 75K - tax  $23,250         Single  making 75K - tax $18,750 
Married  making 60K - tax $16,800        Married making 60K- tax $9,000 
Married  making 75K - tax $21,000        Married making 75K - tax $18,750 
Married  making 125K - tax $38,750     Married  making 125K - tax $31,250 
Both  democratic candidates will return to the higher tax  rates It is amazing how many  people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President  ever. If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will  repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that  fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen.  This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what  happened.

PART  3:
Boy, am I  confused.  I have been hammered with the propaganda that  it  is  the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us.  I now find  that to be RIDICULOUS.  You think  the war in Iraq is costing us too much?    Read  this:
