Letter to the Editor
One thing that most people believe about George Bush is that he’s consistent. But I’m not sure being consistent is going to help persuade people to like his Social Security reforms. When you look at his legacy as president so far, it doesn’t look real good. He turned the worlds biggest surplus into the worlds biggest deficit. He ignored the warnings about bin Laden, who is – still free. We went to war in Iraq on bad intelligence. Medicare reform is a failure. Taxes are up, the dollar is down. The flat worlders want to control the schools. And the government wants to put tracking chips (RFIDs) in federally issued ID cards to spy on everything we do.
So – do we want Bush to be consistent with his past when it comes to Social Security? I don’t think so! I think we should put it off another four years and focus on paying off the national debt. I don’t think we can afford to risk Social Security with someone who has a bad track record.
