Top Ten Things We're Sorry For

10. We did not listen to France and Germany when they wanted to drop sanctions against Saddam and trade with him for a better more stable middle-east

9. We continue to stubbornly demand facts instead of letting ad hominem arguments and emotions rule our political decisions, like "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer"

8. We believed the Democrats in '98 when they said Saddam was evil and must be eliminated, even though they changed their minds

7. We still believe the Democrats when they said also in '98 (after applying a short term fix) that Social Security was going to go bankrupt in 2019, even though they changed their minds

6. We have 6% unemployment while more compassionate European countries have 13-15% unemployment, even though they have high taxes and more benefits for their people than we do, just not the benefit of jobs

5. Our poor are better off than the middle class in most of the rest of the world

4. Bush wants to let Black parents choose which school to send their children to

3. We have the gall to think there is such a thing as absolute good and evil in the world, and that freedom and democratic republic governments are better than any other form of government

2. We forced freedom and democracy on the Iraqi and Afghani people

1. We forced freedom and democracy on the German and Japanese people
