    It couldn't be any worse than it already is with the current administration.

    Senator McCain thinks we should still be actively fighting in Iraq. Would we still be borrowing to keep that war going?

    Would we have a new war with Iran?

    Would there be more homeless people because unemployment was dropped? More hungry without food stamps?
    What changes would have been made to Social Security?
    Would Medicare be privatized?

    *** I think we would still be fighting in Iraq, and barrowing money to do it like we always have.

    Would we have a new war with Iran?
    *** I think it's likely that we would.

    Would there be more homeless people because unemployment was dropped? More hungry without food stamps?
    *** I doubt it. The republicans do a lot of talking but have always been just as ready to spend to get re-elected as the other side.

    What changes would have been made to Social Security?

    *** I doubt any.

    Would Medicare be privatized?
    *** I doubt it.

    The first thought that popped into my mind was "Dumb and Dumber". I think it would be a disaster.

    I believe that Sara Palin has proved herself to be a pretty face celebrity with little political wisdom.
    John McCain represents a dying philosophy and is working hard to avoid irrelevance.
    I doubt that we would be happier, healthier, or better educated.
    Yes I do fear that Medicare would have been in greater jeopardy.
    I do not believe that there would be less unempployment.

    I'm not gonna lie though, I still think Sara Palin is hot.

    Oh...and I also think we would be much further from ending our wars in the middle east if McCain were in office.

    I would like to think we would be getting some kind of handle on spending by now.

    Anyone that thinks we don't have a debt problem or that we can pay down our debt without cutting spending is either a fool or has never had a checking account they were able to keep out of the red.

    I am not certain there is any evidence that a McCain presidency would have impacted our deficits in a positive way...
    Either way, it is speculation.
    The truth is that our elected officials created this deficit...both parties...and now they fight about it and want to polarize the people against each other instead of the people standing against them, the political elite.

    It is time for a change...a substantial change in our 545.
