Are you an undecided voter(this may help)?

Which president had/was responsible for... 1.The highest growth in the gross domestic product? Harry Truman, a democrat 2.The highest growth in jobs? Bill Clinton, a democrat 3.The biggest increase in personal disposable income after taxes? Lyndon Johnson, a democrat 4.The highest growth in industrial production? John Kennedy, a democrat. 5.The highest growth in hourly wages? Lyndon Johnson, you guessed it, a democrat 6.The lowest misery index (inflation plus unemployment)? Harry Truman, a democrat 7.The lowest inflation? Truman, a democrat 8.The largest reduction in the deficit? Bill Clinton, a democrat • The Clinton administration presided over the longest peacetime economic expansion in U.S. history. When Clinton left office, there was a ten-year projected budget surplus of $1.6 trillion. • In less than a year and a half, Republican George W. Bush wiped out that projected budget surplus, and within three years, he turned the $236 billion surplus he inherited into a $375 billion deficit. Keep in mind that these figures are from George W. Bush's first term. He has soared to new heights of fiscal irresponsibility during his second term and continues to set records in economic incompetence. The national debt is now more than $10 trillion. "[A]s much as Republicans would like to tag Barack Obama and Democrats as big spenders, it's Republicans who have been America's biggest spenders. It's not even close.... [S]ince 1945, when Republicans have been in charge of both the White House and Congress, they have never, not once, reduced spending.... Reagan ran up a bigger debt than every president before him combined. The budget deficit exploded under his leadership and the national debt tripled.... [T]he debt has grown from under $1 trillion before Reagan to over $10 trillion after George Bush! And, yet, with all of this spending, we still don't have national health insurance and Social Security is more endangered than ever."-- Bruce Tenenbaum,, 10/16/08. Do you need a job, or maybe a second job, or a third job? •"You work three jobs?... Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that."-- George W. Bush, to a divorced mother of three, 2/4/05 . If you really want to change America for the better, electing Barack Obama is not enough. We need to give the Democratic Party a filibuster-proof majority in Congress. Since the Democrats won a narrow majority in 2006, Republicans in the Senate have used procedural filibusters to block legislation which would have resulted in: * withdrawal of American forces from Iraq. * repeal of tax subsidies for oil companies that were making record profits. * a "cap-and-trade" process to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, defray the cost of gasoline to consumers, and encourage green-energy alternatives. * increased oversight and regulate speculative trading of energy futures that has driven up energy prices. * allowing Medicare to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies to lower drug prices. * adequate rest for military personnel between deployments to the war zones. * making it easier for workers to form or join unions. * relief for homeowners facing foreclosure and state and local governments burdened with foreclosed properties. This is just a small sample of the kind of bills filibustered by Republican Senators since 2006. For a more complete listing (with bill numbers and vote totals) visit <>. Why did Republican Senators filibuster these popular initiatives? •"I think [Democrats' inability to pass legislation] will give the Republicans the one opening they are going to have in 2008. Everything is running against the Republicans, but I think they have a chance if they argue that the Democrats have been in charge and they are the do-nothing Congress."-- Conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer, Fox News, 7/24/07. To paraphrase a cranky, old presidential candidate, "The Republicans would rather sabotage Congress than lose an election." (thanks to Mick Youther, the Nightlife, and the cited references above)

Nice try to influence the opposition's voters, but they probably won't be willing to read all you've written. The true patriot is an informed voter. Learn about voter suppression and steal back your vote at:
