"I'm voting for Bush"
    #2736014 - 05/27/04 11:10 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

What's the stupidest reason that someone has given you for voting for Bush?

My boss was talking politics with me and another co-worker a couple of weeks back. I didn't say much of course because of my extremist views. My boss goes "I'm voting for Bush because he lies, cheats and steals. That's the American way."

I just shut my mouth.

People saying how he has these steadfast ideas and principles that he doesn't stray from. God forbid we have a president with humility or an open mind.

Another stupid one is about how Kerry will introduce gas taxes and raise prices---uhhhh, have we SEEN gas prices before and after W took office?

Too bad the dem's wont pass any of his energy bills, and keep increasing taxes on gasoline. Maybe if they would let him drill in Alaska, that would help too. Anything would help, except blocking energy bills and not letting him drill in the USA.

PS, a 'tax cut for the rich', if you cut taxes by 1% on the richest 20,000, its more money then cutting taxes by a bigger percentage in smaller brackets. So even though everybodies taxes come down, the super wealthy get the most break, just because 1% of alot of money is more then 3% of less money.

You still get taxed more the dem's way.

Ya, cuz a boss has to know his financial situation down to the final penny. Nobody said finances were fun, but theyre numbers that dont lie.

State to state gasoline increases are rampid, this is one coming on the federal level. Im not gonna link to every state's tax increase on gas.

No, the more we spend the more our taxes pay for themselves. The more taxes we have the less we can spend. The repub's way isnt a quick fix, but takes some time, vs the democratic quick fixes, that end up leading to more problems.

wait, you linked me to an article called Increase in Federal Gas Tax Has Supporters in Both Parties in order to defend your claim that democrats are persuing a concerted effort to raise gasoline taxes while republicans are on the right path by not wanting to such taxes?

You said that are going against Bush by "increasing gasoline taxes" but yet the source you provide says that the last federal increase was in 1993.

I dont follow you.

Read again, most of the increases have been state to state. Thats the only big article I could find on the upcoming votes for a federal increase.

No matter what topic, there will be supporters in both parties.
