Re: Bush's War On The Poor

I'm starting to realize that fiscal conservatives aren't that different from social conservatives. There both stupid. Poor fiscal conservatives actually believe Bush is doing something for them with his tax cuts. Although, there is nothing to base this on except what Bush told them. Idiots. Bush is helping rich conservatives though, and their support of him doesn't suprise me in the least. OK, poor conservatives, let's here it. Why did you vote for this guy? Oh that's right.

Setting anecdotal accounts aside for the moment, I do not believe that shame should be a part of the equation with respect to ones relationship with other human beings or God.
