Republicans have been f'ing up the budget for the past 8 years, why should we reward that party for their failure.

We really need a new strong party, this 2 party shit is really getting kind of annoying

If your going to be quote conservative or liberal...at least have some common sense.

I'm pretty sure that the US as a whole leans to the right on constitutional Gov. issues... size of Gov, limited spending, limited federal control, Bill of Rights, local decisions...

social issues hurt both sides..just hurts the more currently. Religion and Roe. v. wade are not negotiable...like gun restrictions to the liberals...ALL of those things are covered in the Bill of Rights.

Palin is a total wash. Not quite as dumb as Paris.. McCain sold himself to the Rove squad so he should lose, just like Bush should have lost 8 years ago. I had alot of hope for W. to be a stand up American citizen after 9/11, his decisions since that day have earned my total disrespect. I have enough respect while he is the commander in chief of my brothers abroad to keep quiet personally....I'm not saying I wanted Gore or voted for him...just saying..

Some things are earned, The have earned everything that is now..and what is coming.

Alaska is the only state that does not collect state sales tax or levy an individual income tax on any type of personal income, where as the city of Chicago has the highest total sales tax of all major U.S. cities. It is also one of the most complex. 10.25% is levied on all non-perishable goods purchased, while 2% is levied on grocery items, drugs, and medical appliances. There is an additional 1% tax, the MPEA "Food and Beverage Tax", on food and beverage purchases in the downtown area (These "downtown" boundaries are: Surf Street on the north, Ashland Avenue on the west, Stevenson Expressway (I-55) on the south, & Lake Michigan on the east. Furthermore, O'Hare and Midway airports also fall under the 1% MPEA tax district). Car rentals in the city are taxed at 20%. Hotel rooms are taxed at 15.4%. Soft drinks (packs, cases, or individual bottles) are taxed at 13.25%.

So much for Obamas tax reduction record.

comparing a state of maybe 600,000 with limited infrastructure to maintain, as well as oil royalties to distribute just exposes the lack of need for taxes and an obvious lesser need for all the complexities of a huge metropolis. Nice try

The point is the reality that Obama had a chance to make change as an Illinois statesmen and failed.

Palin had a chance to reform, and as a governor succeded.

If you think all that Chicago tax dollars are going to maintain ifrastructure and services look at the crime rate.
