Americans saying we should vote Republican now, is like Germans saying they should vote Nazi in 1949. Blaming all of the fallout of the WAR on the party who inherited the damage, and mooning over the 'good old days' before the economic hardships, because it's all the new administration's fault that everything is a smoking ruin.
If McCain had got into office, he would have spent EVERY SINGLE PENNY that Obama did, in much the same way. He (and the rest of the Republicans) were contributing to that big bail out plan. The only difference is, we'd be busy fighting THREE wars (he'd have started one with IRAN pretty quickly), and we'd have probably sent TROOPS into Libya, instead of lending support to NATO on the back end.
Do you hate health care? Because that was a major accomplishment, even as gimped as it was by Republican 'contributions' to it. It's still being fought against by people who believe that medical care should be a privilege, and who don't give a fuck what sick people spread around after they fail to go to a doctor to identify what's wrong with themselves and get treatment to cure it. I would rather pay a little extra for my health care to guarantee it actually fucking EXISTS when I get sick or hurt, rather being 'denied' and 'cancelled' for any weak excuse the corporation can concoct.
Even worse for Obama, he has been completely unable to do ANYTHING because THE SAME COMPLETE FUCKING RETARDS already gave the Republicans control of the house in 2010. With lots of screaming moron tea-baggers, to boot. Since then, congress has been effectively shut down. Anything Obama MIGHT have done about jobs and the economy (i.e. more road/infrastructure construction jobs) was ENDED. The president can only sign bills. If a large hunk of congress petulantly sits there and rejects EVERYTHING, there is nothing for the president to sign.
Republicans want failing bridges and potholed highways. They've shown that.
They want eternal war to subsidize oil, and infinite military spending, and cut everything else.
They want a police state. Electronic Stasi for all of America.
They want Jesus to be in charge, and they want to be the ones who tell us 'Jesus sez'.
Jesus will definitely get around to saying that only certain kinds of Christians can hold office. Only certain kinds of Christians can vote. Only certain kinds of Christians can have anything sort of like 'freedom'...
Go ahead. Give them a big enough majority for a constitutional convention. See what we get.
'We the Christians, in order to form a more perfect union with God, to purge the heathens and secure His perfect graces for all who remain...'
Not that the fundies aren't infecting the Democratic party with their madness, too. If they get a good foothold in there, well...
