    Got this in an email.

    "A New Direction For America - Vote Democratic"

    The stock market is at a new all-time high and America's 401 K's are back.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Unemployment is at 25 year lows.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Oil prices are plummeting.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Taxes are at 20 year lows.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Federal tax revenues are at all-time highs.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    The Federal deficit is down almost 50%, just as predicted over last year.
    A new direction from there means. what?

    Home valuations are up 200% over the past 3.5 years.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Inflation is in check, hovering at 20 year lows.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Not a single terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11/01.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Osama bin Laden is living under a rock in a dark cave, having not surfaced in years, if he's alive at all, while 95% of Al Queda's top dogs are either dead or in custody, cooperating with US Intel.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Several major terrorist attacks already thwarted by US and British Intel, including the recent planned attack involving 10 Jumbo Jets being exploded in
    mid-air over major US cities in order to celebrate the anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Just as President Bush foretold us on a number of occasions, Iraq was to be made "ground zero" for the war on terrorism -- and just as President Bush
    said they would, terrorist cells from all over the region are arriving from the shadows of their hiding places and flooding into Iraq in order to get their
    faces blown off by US Marines rather than boarding planes and heading to the United States to wage war on us here.
    A new direction from there means, what?

    Now let me see, do I have this right? I can expect:
    The economy to go South
    Illegals to go North
    Taxes to go Up
    Employment to go Down
    Terrorism to come In
    Tax breaks to go Out
    Social Security to go away
    Health Care to go the same way gas prices have gone

    But what the heck !
    I can gain comfort by knowing that Nancy P, Hillary C, John K, Edward K, Howard D, Harry R and Osama have worked hard to create a comprehensive National Security Plan, Health Care Plan, Immigration Reform Plan, Gay Rights Plan, Same Sex Marriage Plan, Abortion On Demand Plan, Tolerance of Everyone and Everything Plan, How to Return all Troops to the U.S. in The Next Six Months Plan, A Get Tough Plan, adapted from the French Plan by the same name and a How Everyone Can Become as Wealthy as We Are Plan. I forgot the No More Katrina Storm Plan.

    Now I know why I feel good after the elections.
    I am going to be able to sleep soooooo much better at nights knowing these
    dedicated politicians are thinking of me and my welfare.

    They are plummeting from the all-time highs that happened under the republicans.

    And the high national debt is unprecedented. We ain't paying for what we spend.

    This is a direct contradiction of the last point.

    Whoa! This is bullchit. It's down slightly from the ridiculously high deficits of the last six years. They are still deficits! Clinton posted budget surpluses!

    Ahh. This is inflation and it is not a good thing. The real estate bubble is about to burst, the houseing market has been soft for a year and a half.

    Not true. Inflation is double that of Clinton's 1998 low. Greenspan predicts that more inflation will be the result of the massive nation debt that Bush has run up. It's coming and it will eat up our retirement savings.

    You forgot the anthrax attacks didn't you?

    Bush promised that he would be killed or captured . . . WELL?

    Thank the Brits for that one.

    Amazing. You've already described the Iraq war as a debacle. Now you offer this ridiculous spin. Nobody buys it anymore.

    Here is the new direction that they speak of:

    1. The Iraq War disaster will be reversed and the military can get back to finding Osama.

    2. The vastly increased non-military government spending under Bush will be curtailed.

    3. The republican political scandals will be ended.

    4. The Mexican border will be gotten under control after Bush's failure to do anything about it.

    5. Budget deficits will disappear again.

    6. The Constitutional abuses of the Bush administration will be reversed.

    7. Big Oil will be put back in its place.

    smaller tax rates yield larger revenues when the economy has grown. a smaller slice is bigger if the pie you take it from is larger. lower taxes often mean higher revenues because they spur growth.

    e.g. he overtaxed us and hurt the economy.

    he did, and technically those embassy attacks this week are on american soil as well.

    i buy it.

    How convenient to choose a chart which doesn't include the 3 most productive years under Bush.

    Any decent economist will tell you the economy has been very solid the last 3 years.

    If you can find one with more recent data, then post it. I wasn't trying to clip out any particular years. Honest.

    I didn't write it or research it. I just passed it along.

    Well, you wouldn't have posted it if you didn't expect a response.

    I promise to drop all criticism of Bush just as soon as he's out of the White House. I don't want to be like Sourdough, who is still hung up on Clinton!

    Ahhh, how did our democracy ever function without the guidance of short-sighted platitudes in emails and on bumber stickers?
