And I was silly enough to believe George W. Bush was a neocon Republican. Then he goes and uses the federal budget to get all his pet projects done...going in debt to do so. I thought that was a left-wing, Socialist act. He thus raised taxes and created more of a debt than any president in the history of the U.S. A conservative Republican? Then everybody was treated equally when it came to health care, nobody could afford it. A neocon used equality? Like all past presidents who "started" wars, George W. Bush invaded a sovereign nation without cause? I was told liberals did that in the past. Wow, who knew George W. Bush was a closet left-winger?
And when greed and lies caused the banking and investment system to bring the nation to the brink of economic disaster, George W. Bush used federal government money to buy up all these corporations, and now the government is in all forms of business. Silly me, I thought that was what happened in Socialist countries. Wait til your grandkids get the tax bill!
However he did hold onto one right-wing tactic: pass it all on to the next president.
