- Wall Street - and this economy - are in serious trouble.
- The financial industry has basically been taken over by the federal government.
The past eight years, which, contrary to McCain's campaign have indeed been dominated by the Republicans, have shown us that a) you can't spend more money than ever AND lower taxes at the same time, and b) you can't deregulate the financial industry - somewhere, someone has to be looking over something!
The Republicans have made a habit of expanding government where we don't need it (spending, Iraq, Patriot Act, etc.) and cutting government where we do (not funding veterans, no oversight for Wall Street, 47 million Americans without health insurance, etc.).
I'm sure one of you out there is a Republican. Explain to me why, after royally fucking everything over the past eight years, you deserve four more years in the White House?
