You might say, that's all in the past but you never know how the future turns out. It could turn repressive again with a little help from our right wing nut job fundies, if they get into power, shudder to think....
I hope you are not including me in with the right wing nut job fundies. I am a Christian conservative who will vote for conservative Democrates or Republicans in the general election. However, in my area there is only one conservative Democrat that I will vote for. The rest are Republican because they believe in free enterprise and being able to keep as much as possible of what one has earned honestly and not being taxed to death unfairly.
I believe the Government should make a decision on how to save Medicare and Social Security and stop putting it off raiding it to pay for more government spending that the Liberal Democrats and even some Republicans keep voting for.
It is crazy to think the government can tax and spend their way out of debt. Government needs to stop giving aid to countries that do not deserve it and prioritize or government spending to essential things until we get out of thie mess we are in.
The liberal Democrates are more interested in giving the tax payer's money away to influence others to be on their side. They will blatantly lie in order to do so, as has been demonstrated most recently from Anderson Cooper's interviewing and reporting of a Liberal Democrat. They are more interested in their wealth than in the wealth of the nation, in my opinion.
