What if Carter had defeated Reagan...
    #11196619 - 10/06/09 10:42 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

What would a second Jimmy Carter Administration have looked like? What would 1980-1984 have looked like?

Discuss.

what would a carter victory have looked like?? ..

* no tax cuts for the wealthy...
* no drug war...
* economy comes out of stagflation w/o reaganomics...
* no 9/11 or bu$hco fascism...
* gang of 5 off the SCOTUS...

just to name a few...to make a long story short.. the world would be a far more peaceful and prosperous place today if carter had won in 1980...

We would have mirrored Japan with decades lost to stagflation. The rest of the world would be a lot poorer with much less growth.Reagan came along at a critical time fortunately.We have a similar situation now but we seem to have chosen to do things the Japan way this time around.

Carter promised Hope and Change, he promised he wouldnt lie, of course
he then lied about firing of a U.S. Attorney that was investigating
corruption, it was carter that signed into law the Community
Reinvestment Act and the Chrysler Loan Guarantee, the first auto maker
bailout he fed us the same Eco bullshit that obama has only then it was
global cooling... all this shit sounds very familiar

Quote:

* no 9/11 or bu$hco fascism...




WTF???? Carter was all about intervening in foreign affairs, nukes for
Israel, nukes for N.Korea, Arms to Afghanistan, the Iran/Contra affair
had begun under a carter administration, carter is half the problem with
funding/advising the Mujahideen, carter was trying to induce a Soviet
military intervention not to mention the legendary manuver of ousting
the shah in order to install Khomeini which paved the way for the
embassy to be taken and for the US to fund Iraq in a war against Iran

aren't these all countries we're in conflict with now?

except israel, we pay them to be our friends

you honestly think the bush policies started because bush was elected?

But, but, but he was a Democrat.  How can a Democrat be bad?  Only the Republicans are bad.  /sarcasm

What else needs to be said?  I summed the entire thing up in one sarcastic sentence.
