What about Sweden? Since you guys 'decided' to give George Dubya, a real capitalist, a go, the US even has a hell of a lot more debt than them.
How is Bush a real capitalist while, say, Al Gore or Bill Clinton are not? Faulty terms, faulty argument. Oh, and nice scare quotes around the word decided. Apparently there are people out there who still refuse to believe state government election certifications, independent third party election certifications, and independent media election certifications. Then again, it's hard to trust the media anyway--don't blame you on that one.
The way I see it, Bush is making the world safe for liberalism. First, he's trying to protect western civilization by getting rid of the terrorists who want to suck the world into the 12th-century hellhole that is the state of cultural affairs in the Middle East. Then he turns around and passes every issue the liberals have been campaigning on for 40 years (kind of makes you wonder if they ever had any real intention of living up to their promises, but that's another argument.) So far, he's demanded and signed a $450 billion prescription drug plan for Medicare, wants blanket amnesty and Social Security benefits for illegal aliens, supports the renewal of the assault weapons ban, refuses to fight for his unconstitutionally-filibustered judicial nominees, has gone out of his way to avoid Social Security reform. In general, Bush governs like Clinton--the two significant differences are that Bush is honest about his motives and intentions (Clinton called himself a centrist when he's about as liberal as Jimmy Carter, if not more), and Bush does not use the military to distract people from his personal shortcomings, misuse of office, and domestic scandals.
With that being said, I hope they find the guy who stole the HL2 source. Soon.
