Another Look

You see, this is what I’ve been talking about: attacking people instead of coming up with better ideas. No matter what you think of the man, his ideas led to 8 years of prosperity and peace (not to mention 3 consecutive years of budget surpluses). Attacking him personally was merely tyranny obscuring truth, deceiving, manipulating, working to destroy the contest… Continue reading
