You know, I read these boards everyday, and I am sick of the portrail of republicans by everyone. We all know that Lincoln was a republican and fought to keep the country together. In addition freed the slaves. Did you know that more republicans voted for the civil rights acts of the 1960's than did democrats! Did you know that Kennedy was hated by the democrats because of the ideals of civil rights he had. Did you know that George and Barbara Bush were one of the originial founding contributers to the United Negro College fund. Did you know that we want you to have more of your money, instead of the government having it to blow on stupid studies like the mating cycle of the fire ant! Did you know that we want you to be able to invest your own retirement money, and earn better than the 2% that the government does. That is crazy right. Well, it is a good idea for the democrats in Congress. You see they are exempt from Social security and medicare. They know it doesn't work, and will not be here, so they have their own retirement plan, but not you, your not smart enough to figure that out, they have to hold your hand. They are a party without ideas, and they support too many different agendas.
