Election 06: What Happened to the Immigrants and the Gays?
From today's New York Times:
In many ways, the economy has not looked so good in a long time. The price of gas at the pump has tumbled since midsummer. Unemployment has fallen to its lowest level in more than five years. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average has finally returned to its glory days of the late 1990’s, setting records almost daily.
The issue for fickle, easily-deceived Amercians is now the "direction" of our country. The culture war is on the backburner for now (our country is on first-date mode with Barak Obama) and simple-minded Americans everywhere are now asking themselves if they still trust the thieving warmongers they elected into power two years ago.
I just want to know where the "illegals" went and what happened to the threat on the American family? Of course, I'm taking for granted the fact that we will never leave Iraq, so nuts to the soldiers who are stuck there and to their families who are awaiting their safe return. Perhaps Iraq will become a serious issue of concern for our nation's people a-la Darfur in the summer of '08.
The Republicans are trying to ride on their laurels through the November elections, but after seeing my new fav film "Marie Antoinette" this weekend, I would love nothing more than for the American public to "storm" the system (through the poll booths) and demand accountability from the Republicans even after the Dems win control of both Houses. This year found the Republicans sinking to new lows in their fear propaganda campaign and while it's going to cost them these elections, they should still be held accountable for the reckless and cheap tactics they've been using to drag our country into unnecessary conflict -- both at home and abroad.
