Damn Democrats! But nothing is really different with them. They've been corrupt puppets since heck was a pup...but then I digress

Maybe they should take over the United Nations...they would feel right at home.

The longest one person can hold the office of the President of the United States is just under ten years. See Amendment XXII, ratified February 27, 1951.

True. Our average GDP growth over past 12 months was just over 3%. But who cares about G7. Look at China, Russia, India... (10.7, 6.1 and 8.4% respectively)

Being Invested in the stock market is not necessarily a good thing -- ask Enron people...

It is definitely better that most places (for now), but far from where is could be...

Are you saying that going into debt to buy a house is a bad thing?

Since 1996 the highest the unemployment rate has been is 6.3% in June 2003.

I neither gave credit to the President nor did I assign him blame, I simply responded to the assertion that the state of the nation is in the crapper.

Comparing apples to oranges.

GDP (PPP) per capita:

USA - $41,399
PRC - $7,198
Russia - $11,041
India - $3,320

If you are not invested in the stock market than you are an economic idiot. If you are invested in the stock market and not diversified, you are a bigger economic idiot.

Again, the state of the union is NOT in the crapper.

I did not say it was...

Again, I did not say you could end up loosing ALL of your money (if diversified), but still could loose a big chunk, and after that be NET worth less than if you were not invested at all...(lets say 20% in ENRON) and your gains are <20% otherwise...

As for apples and oranges...maybe in your Math, but "faster growth" usually applies in %, not in ammounts, therefore....

You're correct about the unemployment rate...I was looking at the 1992 previously.

Thank you ganeil, I didnt have time to put these facts together, but I personally think the most important thing here is "No terrorist attacks on US Soil since 9/11." Everyone says this war is unjust, the GWB blows he cant find his way out of a paper bag, but obviously he is doing something right. Taking out Sadam and preventing attacks on our country mean nothing right? Its not worth fighting any more people. We are entitled to our opinions and thats basically all these are. Just remember, 2040, thats the big year for me!
