Random Thoughts about Politics

What is the difference between Tax and Spend Liberals and Tax Cut and Spend Republicans?

Is it just a better spin machine?  I honestly don’t understand this one….  as if Republicans don’t spend money.

Why is pork barrel spending only bad when it is money going to someone else’s district?  Most citizens are thrilled when their legislator brings money home.  They all do it. It’s a job requirement.  If it weren’t they wouldn’t be re-elected.

And while we’re on the topic of spending money…  why is it that we can fund the War in Iraq to the tune of some 400 million dollars a day and we can find 700 BILLION dollars to bail out financial institutions (who in my opinion are failing due to greed) and we can’t seem to fund HEALTHCARE for everyone?

And while we’re on the topic of healthcare….  so what if Obama’s health plan would cost $80 billion dollars. Again, we can fund war and find bailout money to save the financial system, but we can’t provide healthcare coverage to save individual lives?

And while we’re talking politics…  make sure you’re registered to vote!  For information about registering to vote in New Mexico, check the Secretary of State’s office.  For information about registering in California, check with that Secretary of State.  Deadlines are coming up!
