    I'm trying to get all this political stuff straightened out in my head so :confused:

    I'll know how to vote come November. Right now, we have one guy saying one thing, then the other guy says something else. Who am I to believe?
    Lemme see, have I got this straight?

    Ahh, it's so confusing!!!

    Every year an independent tax watchdog group analyzes the average tax burden on Americans, and then calculates the "Tax Freedom Day".
    This is the day after which the money you earn goes to you, not the government.
    This year, tax freedom day was April 11th. That's the earliest it has been since 1991.
    It's latest day ever was May 2nd, which occurred in 2000.
    Notice anything special about these dates??

    Recently John Kerry gave a speech in which he claimed Americans are actually paying more taxes under Bush, despite the tax cuts. He gave no explanation and provided no data for this claim.

    Another interesting fact: Both George Bush and John Kerry are wealthy men.
    Bush owns only one home, his ranch in Texas.
    Kerry owns 4 mansions, all worth several million dollars. (his ski resort home in Idaho is an old barn brought over from Europe in pieces...not your average A-frame.)

    Bush paid $250,000 in taxes this year Kerry paid $90,000. Does that sound right?
    The man who wants to raise your taxes obviously has figured out a way to avoid paying his own.

    It's not confusing at all if you're willing to face the truth:

    Clinton, Bush, and Kerry are all socialists, and internationalist in their foreign policy.

    That's bad in all three cases.

    I don't hate Bush. I hate his policies, which are socialism at home and useless wars abroad. Pure liberalism.
