No More Republican Presidents, Please

The John Birch Society, in their Stop the FTAA (Free Trade Area of the Americas) campaign, took out a full page (tabloid-style) ad in the paper. They reprinted an essay called Republican Presidents More Harmful from The New American magazine.

A Republican president can often enact a more liberal agenda than a Democrat could because many Republicans in Congress are more loyal to party than to principle.

You have to buy the PDF for more, but it goes on to point out how the Republicans presidents since Eisenhower have expanded liberal programs and the budget in ways that would have been opposed had a Democrat been president.

Since I support divided government, and I don't know that Democrats will be taking back either house of Congress, I certainly support a Democratic president. (Although, had both houses been D when W ran, he would certainly still not have gotten my vote.)
