Why is Bush calling government bonds in the Social Security Trust fund IOUs,
as if they were scraps of paper in a shoe box? Why is Bush "implying" that
our government may default on the treasury bonds that will pay future Social
Security? Those "IOUs" Bush loves to talk about, are the ones HE WROTE, with
our credit, when he created the deficit to finance an unnecessary war and
tax cuts for the rich. Is Bush saying that the IOUs he wrote are no good?
Our President wants people to be confused, insecure and afraid, because
there is one thing this President knows how to exploit and that is FEAR.
Remember what happened when Bush "implied" that Iraq had a nuclear bomb? It
didnĀ¹t matter that Iraq never had WMD of any kind; Bush still got his war.
Isn't it ironic that those who question the wisdom of American foreign
policy are ridiculed as unpatriotic and weak. Now our President is
questioning the very solvency of the United States government. Yet, no one
points out how irresponsible and UNPATRIOTIC his actions are or how Bush is
weakening our fiscal power by casting doubt on the "full faith and credit"
of the United States of America.
It is time to stand up to this nonsense. Bush can NOT get away with
preaching that his government is all powerful in foreign affairs, but too
weak to pay it's debt to the elderly and infirm.
