The first six years of Bush were decent,,the assault weapons ban was allowed to expire, the economy was good, my 401K made very good money, etc. Two years ago, the liberals took control of congress, and the country goes to hell.
Typical of liberal wisdom is, Barney Frank and his liberal cronies pressuring Fanny and Freddie to make sub prime loans to 'disadvantaged' individuals, knowing full well they may not be able to repay. This country and most of the civilized world have promptly been screwed by liberal wisdom.
Those thinking that liberalism and socialism are the answer,,are completely ignorant and naive.
The way I see it is that there are/were/still are too many 2 family incomes buying $500,000 house with $4000 per month mortgages. Then, the economy changed/changes and one gets layed off and they can't make their payments.I live in a MODEST home with a $500 mortgage paymemnt. I'll get by. Who made these people buy/extend themselves?? Are they IDIOT liberals or IDIOT conservatives? Are they mostly the 56% or the 44% of the country???
