Reading more polls concerning national issues (election-year stuff), it disheartens me to read the results.|
More people worry about rising gas prices than job security, health care, or even the national debt. Worrying about gas prices shouldn't be the primary concern, although i'm not saying it can't be of any concern.
And maybe I wouldn't gripe every two weeks at how much I'm taxed, if my taxes were going to something useful, instead of wasteful spending on stupid "wars".
"Bush argues that with reduced income taxes, families have more to spend"
Yeah, on rising-prices for gas, health care, et cetera. -_-; Where's the savings, in the end?
*sighs* Kerry, who I'm voting for, wouldn't be a magical "cure-all" for the nation's ailments... but I believe another 4 years of Bush is far worse.
You know, the only charge against Saddam I can't understand, is for his 1990 invasion of Kuwait. It's like, c'mon, didn't Bush invade Iraq? x_x; Granted, Bush wasn't set out for mass-murdering, but still, Bush invaded Iraq, just like Saddam invaded Kuwait.
