We get hit early in the Clinton administration, but arent hit again for the next 7 years.
We get hit early in Bush administration, but arent hit again for years.
So im assuming after WTC 93' you were giving Clinton credit for protecting us for those 7 years? after all we werent hit again after that.
He's right. You won't find me championing the cause of the modern Republican party. They have failed to shrink the size of government, they have failed to eliminate many of our great economic liabilities, they haven't reorganized our bureacracies, they've failed to secure our border, they've mismanaged the war, they've spent out of control... I can go on and on. The Republican Congress most certainly wasn't a great success, but I believe that this problem stems from our broken political system that doesn't allow for real change.
Take for example, the Republican and Democratic "debates". I think it was Newt who said that they are a mixture of American Idol and Survivor. It's like a gameshow -- you're almost waiting for who's going to be voted off stage.
The debates are dominated by a TV personality who is often rude and disrespectful to the candidates, cuts them off, etc. And then you have these candidates who are trying to force in their 30 second memorized bit which is what their paid political consultants said works well in the focus groups. There isn't a 30 second answer to Iraq or social security or healthcare or illegal immigration.
Getting back on track here, how can any real change or any big ideas possibly come from such a political system
i agree with 4 straight paragraphs of your thoughts
The problem is relative to your first paragraph, the modern republicans have failed you, yet you will continue to vote straight red regardless. Do you think the Republican Party will ever return to its conservative roots, when their base blindly continues to support them.
The same goes for the Democrats. They aren't going to end the war, and universal healthcare is never coming to corporate america. But the left will continue to support them.
it's a failed system, that only works for those in power in government, the corporate world and banking.
