Pssssstt...Clinton signed that one...Ok, so as an independent I agree with you the Democrats and their president have failed. We disagree on why they failed, but little significance. But before I can cast a vote for a Republican I have a question that needs to be answered. Just what exactly are the Republicans going to do differently from their previous policies that created the mess we're in?
I've asked this before and have never received an answer. I have not heard ONE republican leader articulate their strategy on any of the major issues. As much as I'm disappointed in the Democrats performance, it is still a major improvement over the last round of Republicans we survived. The Republican Congress of the nineties gave us deregulation of energy, banking, insurance, finance, and NAFTA. Where did that lead us?
The Republican Congress of the last decade gave us record deficits, 3 wars (all unfinanced), corruption the likes nobody alive has ever witnessed before (remember K street, Denny Hastert, Tom Delay, Bill Frist, Jack Abromoff... ) How did that work out for us?
All I keep hearing from Republican leaders is the same old nonsense. They need to tell us what THEY want to do.
