4. Oddly, I agree in a fashion.
Voting for a Dem means:

-we will be a step closer to enforcing finance laws that keep the market artificially inflated

-we will be in a position to move the energy sectors of our economy to sustainable resources

-we will have a huge tax increase among those who deliver unto Republicans the spoils of government privatization

-we will be voting for an end to a missile defense system that would have worked so remarkably well on 9/11 (supposing one jetliner had been packed with radioactive material - or an A-bomb)

-we will stop the Bush economic boom dead in its tracks (by "boom" I suppose the writer means inflated stock prices through company outsourcing and layoffs - not necessarily through product and service sales)

-by surrendering to the terrorists, this could mean that we would rephrase our foreign policy to reflect equitable treatment toward the citizens among nations where we derive our imported natural resources.

-ditto the last two points provided we maintain the same course as the Bush administration
