As a Republican I am not always happy with them and quite often disagree; but one thing I know is that the Democratic Party has abandoned the small business community for the larger and more contributory business enterprises. The liberal wing of the Dem party has turned socialist and is Anti American, so are the floks that support them.

I agree that the Democratic platform has always been tax and spend, and not friendly to small business. Unfortunately, the Republicans benefit small businesses to a degree, but there is no doubt in my mind that they are all about the wealthy. Is that bad? Hmmm I've never been sure since I"m not wealthy but would not kick if I was.

The current administration has in an indirect manner just done the same thing. Run up deficit spending, and spent on the war. Contributed to the biggest inflation increases I have experienced since the Carter administration (the Gov't figures on inflation are grossly understated) The deficit and war are to be passed on to the next president who will have to pay the bill, (increased taxes) OR, throw more iron on the boat and sink it faster!

In either case these actions have lessened the buying power of our dollars. It is reasonable and prudent for all intelligent and educated Americans to ponder the feasibility of any course of action. Blindly following anyone or anything out of pure loyalty is not responsible.

Some believe that the war is an investment into the future safety of America. Since we found NO WMD's, and we are mired in a place that will socially collapse if we just pull out, it should raise hard questions in ANY American as to what price this investment?

For OIL? lol, college professors in PA just figured out how to ignite salt water using a radio frequency generator and developed 3,000 degree farenheit. (search yahoo) I am quite confident that someone in a very high position of power will make these people disappear. (I'll even send you the yahoo link if you cannot find it)

Who is really in charge?

As a small business owner and one that is involved with politics, I see a barrage of legislation mandating the business community - large and small - additional taxes and regulations that does not make any economic sense. It is "feel good" legislation with unintentional consequences. All of this is coming from the Democratic side of the legislators. Fortunately, we have a governor that realizes some of the bills before him and vetoes it. However, there are times when we have to cross our fingers.

I realize some members in this forum does not recognize the need to have the business community operate in an environment that is pro-business. But let's face it, it is the small business segment that hires and trains the majority of the unskilled and partially educated labor force. At the moment, I do not recall the labor statistics employed by the small business community. I will get it later unless some one else responds.

I used to believe that the Republican Party was for the rich and the Democratic Party was for the poor. As a seasoned activist from both sides, I know now that that is a crock of bull! (More of this later.)

There was a time when I was a socialist and that was during my college years and sometime afterwards. I read The Communist Manifesto by Marx and other renown works by top socialist writers. That being said, I identified with the Democratic Party and joined their campaign to elect legislators.

All that came to a halt when I read The Capitalist Manifesto. Shortly thereafter, I joined a Certified Public Accounting firm and eventually went on my own. That is when I joined the Republican Party. I am not always happy with them and quite often disagree; but one thing I know is that the Democratic Party has abandoned the small business community for the larger and more contributory business enterprises.

No Greenspan did not do it all by himself but he certainly did not help. Clinton left us with a beginning recession Bush stopped, then 911 happened because clinton was getting blow jobs and neglected America, now GWB is cleaning up that mess. The libs crying about it make traitorous statements and are cowards, you want these thieves(hillarys friends) stealing from you next??? lol

"Greenspan caused the last recession"

I sincerely hope that you don't believe that Mr. Greenspan single handedly caused the last recession. That's like giving a president sole credit for a good or bad economy.

There isn't enough space in this forum or the entire website to go into the detail of the complexity of the American economy, but I can suggest some very good reading.

"The Economic report of the President" usually released every year about February (last I checked) Regardless of it's credibility under any administration it "overviews the nation's economic progress using text and extensive data appendices". Until you've actually handled one of these babies most don't have a clue as to how complex our economy is. I've always been hilariously entertained by those who attribute the success or failure of a trillion dollar economy to any one factor or person.

I think there is always enough blame to go around with regards to economic and market influences. Deficit spending weakens the U.S. Dollar. Wall St. has to many panic driven speculators who can be and will be influenced by more that just one person's decision, and world events (gheesh hurricanes even).

And if that's not enough I'm quite sure that many of the nation's and world's wealthiest firms have hired some of the best analyst in the world to determine just how far they can crank prices with out killing the Goose. (but hey even they screw up too)

Also, I am acutely aware of the existence of dangerous extremist in the Democratic party. It is unfortunate for both parties to be held to the example of their worst members.

Greenspan caused the last recession, why would anyone ever believe him except for a closed minded lib that thinks anyone that disagrees with Bush is the second coming.

it depends which hillary you want to see...the one who wants to take over all medical care in the US and loathes the military, or the version she and her handlers have conjured up this week. Bill was a moderate, hillary is a liberal socialist, possibly a Marxist. Today is what counts not 20 years ago as to where the parties were.
