Democrats good for the economy. Republicons bad. Why is this so hard to understand?
At the end of that diagram, you can clearly see the cliff Bush drove us over. That is, of course, after he drove us over the first cliff in 2001. You can't blame the terrorists when you're the one that ignored the intelligence warnings.
I have no idea where this myth that the Cons are the party of fiscal responsibility came from. They spend like drunken sailors when they're in charge. Check out the deficit:
My goodness me, it does appear that the deficit has exponentially increased under Cons ever since Reagan.
Here's another myth-shattering chart. Corporate profits increase under Dems:
Funny how when more people can afford to buy your products, you sell more, innit?
So, with all that being the case, let me ask a question: how the fuck is it that Cons are allowed to discuss the economy, much less get their grubby hands on it? According to these charts, we should be laughing ourselves sick every time they open their mouths, and never ever again let them come within spitting distance of the economic controls.
The article I took those last two charts from is well worth reading in its entirety, btw. And it's got plenty more pictures drawn from government sources for the terminally hard-of-thinking. Time to explode those myths before that precipice we've fallen over drops us into a chasm not even a Democratic president can pull us out of.
