Let's talk about the 99%. 99% of the American citizenry have it easy during the war against the Islamo-Fascists here in the 21st century. Please, let me explain. Only 1% of the American people have gone overseas to engage the Islamo-Fascists on the battlefield. A say, "A job well done to our heroes!" But what of the other 99%? Let's face it, those not serving in the military overseas have experienced war against the Islamo-Fascists under three conditions. 1.) Entire interface consists of watching war on TV. 2.) Paid for the war with the precious Bush tax. (yes, supply-side theory provided the revenue.) 3.) Did a heck of a lot of shopping. (urged by George W. Bush to support the war effort)

You Republicans forget that George W. Bush was the first president to socialize the auto industry. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1208/16740.html George W. Bush announces $17.4 billion auto bailout. The plan includes taxpayer assistance for GM and Chrysler in return for radical restructuring.

I've posed this question many times. Are not the Republican sponsored ethanol mandates just a Marxist redistribution of wealth from America's east and west coasts to America's heartland?
I remember when George W. Bush announced that he was going to mandate the use of 4 billion gallons of ethanol each year in a State of the Union address. All the Congressional Republicans jumped up applauding like the fawners at Stalin's speeches used to. What a bunch of Marxists these Republicans have become, no?
The 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain proposed a $300 billion mortgage relief program. Isn't this yet another Republican Marxian wealth redistribution program that was four times LARGER than Obama's $75 billion program? Read about the Republican Marxist program here; http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE4932E920081008 Let's be frank, John McCain's mortgage relief program was another Republican-Marxist wealth redistribution plan that planned to redistribute wealth from those who could afford their house to those who bought more house than they can afford. And by extension, all those who voted for him are Marxists or to say they at least have Marxian tendencies. Are we clear?
Our on going liberal-socialist social engineering project in the middle east of bringing democracy there is financed solely through US debt securities sold to China, Japan, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Russia to name a few. Remember, the USA had its precious Bush tax cut shortly after the war in Iraq started NINE years ago. Why, oh why, didn't we just hand over Afghanistan to the Northern Alliance after they helped us to defeat the Taliban, like ten freaking years ago? The Republican party's lasting accomplishment has been to take us from surpluses, like forever, to deficits forever. Didn't Clinton essentially have a balanced budget?

A card-carrying Republican retorts "how did we De-socialize under Obama? I'm confused??" George W. Bush 'invited' top bankers to the White House and told them they must accept federal dollars to shore up their poor balance sheets in exchange for stock and warrants. These banks were allowed to return TARP money that in some cases was forced upon them and got their stock and warrants back all under Obama!

Read Hank Paulson's book "On the Brink." We socialized the American financial system under a Republican administration! George W. Bush, Hank Paulson and the Republican administration told top bankers in the fall of 2008, that "they would have to accept government investment for the good of the American financial system." Hugo Chavez, Venezuela's socialist president, found this a stunning move. He said, "Bush is to the left of me now!, Comrade Bush announced he will buy shares in private banks. Viva La Revolution!" http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSTRE49F0K720081016 America did DE-socialize the financial system under Obama.
