The Democrats promise a new direction for America. Let us review the current facts, and ask: Where will a “new direction” take us?
The stock market is at a new all-time high and America’s 401(k)s. Unemployment is at a 25-year low. Taxes are at 20year lows. Federal tax revenues are at alltime highs. The federal deficit is down almost 50 percent, just as predicted, from last year. Home valuations are up 200 percent over the past 3.5 years. Inflation is in check, hovering at 20-year lows.
Not a single terrorist attack has happened on U.S. soil since 9/11. Osama bin Laden is living under a rock in a dark cave, if he’s alive at all, while most of al Queda’s top dogs are either dead or in custody, cooperating with U.S. intelligence. Several major terrorist attacks have been thwarted by U.S. and British intelligence. Just as President Bush told us on a number of occasions, Iraq was made “ground zero” for the war on terrorism, and just as President Bush said they would, terrorist cells from all over the region are arriving from the shadows of their hiding places and flooding into Iraq in order to get their faces blown off by U.S. Marines rather than boarding planes and heading to the United States to wage war on us here.
Now if the Democrats do take us in a "new direction, we can expect the economy to go south, illegals to go north, taxes to go up, employment to go down, terrorism to come here, tax breaks to go out, Social Security to go away, health care to go the same way gas prices have gone.
