Would Gore drive up Deficits? Hurt Stocks?

- I've concluded that Al Gore will return us to $200 bill/year deficits; jack up interest rates; & be bad for America

- Here's my proof - & please note I've voted for Ross Perot & others - I'm an independent - here goes:

- Gore came to Congress in '76 - total debt only $654 bill

- Gore & his Democrat allies owned Congress & Presidency for 4 years. They took the $654 bill debt; went on a spending spree; & handed incoming Prez Reagan a debt of almost $1 trill

- Gore & Democrats forced Prez Reagan & later Bush to accept massive spending increases (I do fault both for not standing up to the Democrats)

- In '92, Clinton/Gore got elected & it was 1976 all over again. From '92 to '94, debt went from $4 trill to $4.7 trillion. (Democrats owned Congress & Presidency)

- In '94 Republicans took back Congress for the first time in 40 years. Immediately, Clinton vetoed spending bills & Clinton shut down the Gov't

- In '2000, due to Republicans such as Trent Lott & Dennis Hastert, we will close about breakeven.

- Republicans & Bush: Read my lips: you're doing a good job on the debt. I trust you to fix soc security & medicare. You have my vote on Nov 7, 2000

- P.S. - Gore's latest promise is not to add more employees to the Federal Payroll. Yet he's proposed almost 300 new programs. Gore's record is one of racking up debt; he's a serial exaggerator; & nothing Gore says can be beieved
