Were the 90's so "nanny state?" Were the Clinton years so socialist?

I am surprised at how many people think that we are going to go North Korea/China if Obama wins.

Oh well. Nevermind.

To Red Cat Waves, I think McCain and his supporters can speak for themselves. The country has been going in the wrong direction for a long while now. What is capitalistic about nationalizing banks, that was under Bush. I am no fan of Bush, and all that "economic progress" under Clinton has now prove to be pretty illusionary, those bubbles have burst.

I will be blunt. I don't trust Obama. There is a thread that runs through his life story and his associates and it has little to do with the Founders or Adam Smith. It not fear-mongering to look at who he associates with, how he votes, and things he has said off-script.
