It used to be positive but over the last several years has become more and more negative. The Country deserves better than this $hitheel Bush Administration.
I used to think that too, but then you elected it knowing its evils fully well.
I voted for Gore in 2000 and Kerry in 2004.
Well yeah, but we were talking about "the country" deserving better, not you personally. This is a country that gave a coupist its belated sanction despite the fact that he was not able to "make" the elections in the traditional way of coupists - didn't even choose his election date.
