By Robin Rouby Monroe Some questions for those who think people like me have always been "way too political:" How did I correctly predict that if Bush Jr. was elected we'd be at war with Iraq, our budget surplus would be gone within a year, and that our economy would collapse if he was re-elected? How did I correctly predict during the Clinton administration that if he raised taxes the economy would boom, and that the Republicans' "Contract With America" would lead to an extremist right wing take over of our government which would in turn lead to voter suppression, and all-out wars on women's rights, education, workers, the elderly and the poor? How did I correctly predict during the Bush Sr. administration that if we didn't take money out of politics it was just a matter of time before corporations controlled the government?
