Admit it, Democrats, you have been lied to your whole lives and you just keep believing it.

You were told by President Obama that the reason for our poor economy was because George Bush cut the taxes on the rich. Obama just signed a bill to keep the taxes at the same level. You were told by President Roosevelt that his “New Deal” would end the Great Depression. It made it last longer and longer. You were told by President Lyndon Johnson that his policies would end poverty in America. There are more poor people now than ever.

Now we are stuck with all of their stupid programs. We are stuck with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, They have just about bankrupted us. We are stuck with Social Security and Medicare that will bankrupt us. We are stuck with every stupid government program, like the Department of Agriculture and the department of Education, and we just can’t get rid of them.

I can understand older folks voting for these people to continue these Ponzi schemes. However, young Democrats? Give me a break. You are the ones that will be stuck with the bill.
