Just read this article on the state of the economy. Not looking good. It boils down to either tax raises or program cuts in every state. People who need help the most are the ones hurt the most.

So, taking all this into consideration, what is more important for the United States of America right now, war with Iraq or revitalizing and rejuvenating our economy?

[edit]btw if some mod would fix my third option and make it look like this, thx:

Don't care ( shame on you :mad: )

I am reaaaaallly pissed about the whole war thing and how it is effecting our economy and it hasn't even happened yet. I understand why Bush and others think that we need to intervene in this Iraq thing...but our poor economy! Our gas prices are sky rocketing, programs are getting cut. It is just sucking. Does he want us to all go broke...that is one way to loose this country's support for war!

I don't know if you're being sarcastic (I can't tell), but Wassup had that avatar before you. Technically, you're the one who stole his.

yes but is that money worth American lives? And I'm sure Iraq will probably destroy a significant part of their oil before the US get their greedy hands on it, like they did during the Gulf War by burning the oil. Plus if we did conquer Iraq and get their oil, many people would feel upset by the impression that the Bush administration started the war that cost numerous American lives just to obtain Iraq's oil. I personally feel its not worth it for us to start this war.

I think that Bush has realized that if he goes for the oil then everyone will hate him. And thats why hes starting the war because he is NOT going for the oil. And this war is actually supposed to help the economy and not hurt it. (read this on cnn.com so I don't know if its true or not cause its media.) And hes coming on tonight with the State of the Union Address and he says he's going to "declassify" info on why we should attack Iraq. Should be interesting.

Oh yes the little factor of the brain washing..yeah the U.S. has to have that....hmmm...well...I guess they can keep the story of stopping them from using some weapon on us...you really think Iraq would use some **** on the U.S.?...I think not...we would wipe em all out...what would be the point?...they are not stupid.

the media sucks, just wants to boost ratings. Besides, im too smart for them :D . The economy has plunged a lot. This war wont help at all.economy has been hit hard for about 2 years or so, we neeed to focus on building it back up again.

as for war, there is no proof of nukes yet, but the gulf war wasnt much of a gain either. we gained access to oil and liberated kuwait. but im sick of the media trying to boost their ratings and i want them to shut the f*ck up!, lol:p
