Bush was a wolf in sheep's clothing. We all thought he was a conservative because of his Governor record in Texas, but as President he proceeded to systematically dismantle some of the things that make America so unique and special on the world stage. Massive deficit spending, inflationary monetary policy the likes of which had never been seen before, two undeclared (and hence unconstitutional!!!) wars, the Patriot Act, consecutive NDAA's each further deteriorating liberties.
Then Obama is elected, promising change. What does he do? He introduces Obamacare. He signs the 2012 NDAA that explicitly grants authority to detain citizens without trial on US soil if they are deemed a "terrorist".
