Polls can’t be correct

After the recent Republican convention, a Newsweek poll claimed that Bush received an 11-point boost. I do not believe that! Did they poll Orange County and the Hamptons? The following list are reasons why I can’t believe the polls.

Unnecessary war in Iraq. Now there are 1,025 dead American service men and women. Almost 7,000 wounded. Billions of wasted dollars. This is Bush’s war, he is so proud, and has no conscience.

Economy over 1.5 million lost jobs, and 2 million jobs outsourced overseas in four years.

More than 45 million families without health insurance and another 1.5 million have fallen below the poverty level in the last four years.

A record deficit of $421 billion in four years.

Gutting the clean water Environment and Clean Air Act. Dismantling the Wilderness Act. Increased logging in the beautiful Tongas National Forest.

Tax break for the wealthiest 1 percent.

Against stem cell research. This research could help people with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

Trying to privatize Social Security and using this money to help run the government.

If the citizens of our country approve of this disastrous administration, I feel very sorry for them. Because they are either ignorant or they love misery.
