1. this? sorry no link, copied

= = =

(1) PUT RIGHT-WING IDEOLOGY FIRST: We recognize that we need to cater to our
right wing base rather than pesky moderates like Nancy Reagan and Orrin
Hatch. Therefore will put ideology over science and deny all credible
scientific evidence that stem cell research will save lives and that global
warming exists.

(2) DENY A WOMEN'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE: We will continue, at all costs, to
ensure that women are denied their Constitutional right to choose. We will
appoint judges who will work to rollback that right and we will fight for
legislation that infringes on this right.

(3) REWARD OUR WEALTHY CONTRIBUTORS: We will continue to pass tax cuts that
benefit the wealthiest Americans who fund our campaigns and get us elected.

no-bid contracts to our closest friends to ensure they will receive the
largest contracts possible. Also, we will relaunch our secret energy
taskforce so we can add more loopholes for big oil.

(5) ADD $10 TRILLION IN DEFICITS: In the past four years, this
Administration has successfully taken the country from a $5.6 trillion
surplus to a $5 trillion deficit - a $10 trillion loss of revenue. We want
to take the next step by adding an additional $10 trillion to the deficits,
leaving the burden on the next generation.

(6) HARM OUR ENVIRONMENT: We will rollback generations of environmental
regulations that protect our air, land and water. We will poison our water
with arsenic and mercury; we will allow drilling in our most pristine
natural wilderness; and we will make sure taxpayers pay to clean up our
toxic waste sites.

domestic programs that provide health care, early education and nutrition
programs and after-school services to thousands of American children. We
will continue to fail to live up to our commitment to fund our education
mandate by $27 billion. We will also pass our $2 trillion plan to privatize
Social Security.

(8) BREAK OUR COMMITMENT TO VETERANS: We will once again promise veterans
will be provided for under a Republican administration. We will then fail to
provide the funding veterans need for health care, cut 500,000 veterans from
the system entirely and close veterans' hospitals across the country.

(9) RUSH TO WAR IN IRAQ: We are proud that we stubbornly rushed to war in
Iraq without our allies, sent our troops into combat without proper
equipment, over-stretched our military, and failed to plan for the peace.

(10) LET AL QAEDA OFF THE HOOK: We will continue to divert our attention and
resources from Afghanistan, break our promises to rebuild that nation. We
let Bin Laden escape from Tora Bora to continue planning attacks against the
U.S. from his hideout reportedly in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.

(11) LEAVE AMERICA VULNERABLE: We will under-invest in port, chemical and
nuclear security, claiming the war in Iraq protects us here at home, and
hope no one notices Ridge's and Ashcroft's warnings of an imminent attack on
the homeland in the coming months.

Look, I love these as much as the next guy, but the "5.6 trillion" dollar surplus leaves out a key word: projected. It was a projected surpluse of 5.6 trillion dollars over several years if both taxes, spending and the enconomy stayed relatively the same. We have never been out of deficit, we were just going in the right direction under Clinton. The add 10 trillion in deficits is just an outright lie. We still were in deficit under Clinton, and we're in more and rapidly increasing deficit now.

It is totally true that Clinton (and the 90s enconmy) put us on a path away from escalating deficit, and that Bush (and the 00's economy) undid that, and that Bush is argessively spending and running up the deficit. But we never actually HAD the 5.6 trillion surplus, because we hadn't gotten out of defict yet - that was what was *projected* over the years.
