Last November, for the first time ever, I voted for all Democrats. I’ve usually voted almost all Republican. However, on this ballot, I felt that whatever tax increases the Democrats might pass would be better than the war in Iraq. So I voted for them, in hopes that they would stand up to President Bush’s crazy plan.
Now, however, I realize I was completely wrong. Not only are the allowing Bush to continue the war, but they’re throwing in an extra $20B in farm aid, social programs, and Federal hurricane relief!
This is the worst of all worlds! Because I didn’t vote Republican, we’ve got both a stubborn, silly war and increased taxes for ridiculous social programs. I should have voted Republican. I don’t agree with Bush, but at least he does what he says he will. The democrats say that they’ll stand up to Bush and then they fall over like a bunch of dominoes.
I’m such an idiot.
