5. This is what happens
when people blindly vote for Republicans because they promise to lower taxes. I am far from being even middle class...in terms of money, I'm pretty far down there. Even I, though, would rather pay a few dollars more in taxes to see that other people don't have to choose between their home or their medicine.

Republicans have ruined our country, and our Democratic politicians, except for a precious few, have aided and abetted them in their relentless attacks on the poor and middle classes.

I realize that many of the ones being hurt voted for the ones who are destroying them, and while I lament their stupidity, I don't have the heart to relish being able to say "I told you so..." The trouble with pain like that being felt now by so many, is that it also causes pain to the ones who knew enough not to vote for their own executioners.

When will the country wake up, and realize how horribly, horribly wrong this whole administration is? When will they see that we are sending our citizens to die in a country which posed no threat to us? Why do we allow politicians to rob us blind, and keep voting for them over and over because they claim to be Christian and lower taxes, and nothing else seems to matter to some people, even as the ones they vote for keep rampaging and looting the treasury?
