Why we can’t trust Republicans with our country

This video is a must-see for anyone who wishes to understand the truth behind our present economic disaster and why Republicans should never, EVER again be trusted to control the country’s wealth.  They ran us into the ground many times before, and they’ll do it again.

So you see, the disaster visited upon us by Bush & Co isn’t an aberration.  It’s a logical result of a failed ideology.

  1. I agree you can’t trust Republicans with your money. Keep taxes lower and you wouldn’t have to.

    I’m not sure I understand the point of your reply. Are you suggesting that if we don’t keep taxes low, then the country will be taken over by people who will really screw it up?

    Is this some sort of political/economic extortion? Please clarify.

  3. My point was that the government only has ‘our money’ to the extent that they tax it from us. With lower taxes the whole issue of whether we could ‘trust’ this or that party ‘with our money’ would become moot.

    You see, your post appeared to be premised on the idea that the purpose and function of government is to Do Stuff With Our Money (and thus the question is which party we can ‘trust’ with it). I disagree with that and I’d rather not have to ‘trust’ either party with my money, thanks very much. Best,
