The writer stated that the Democrats gave us Medicare and Social Security. That's a joke. They passed a law along with those stupid Republicans that made working people pay for those programs, then the all-giving Democrats (Lyndon Johnson and crowd -- the Great Society), along with the stupid Republicans, stole the Social Security fund to fund a program that has kept people in poverty to this day. The people whom we elect make laws that keep them in their positions; that's all they care about. There should be term limits on all elected officials, because the people are too stupid to vote them out.
In November, the election will direct the government on the way the people want it to go -- and if Barack Obama is elected, the government will have open license to steal everything from the working class and give it to those who are kept in poverty. Of course, John McCain is not my pick for president either. I wish Zell Miller was running.
