    Personal disposable income has grown nearly 6 times more under Democratic presidents

    Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has grown 7 times more under Democratic presidents

    Corporate profits have grown over 16% more per year under Democratic presidents (they actually declined under Republicans by an average of 4.53%/year)

    Average annual compound return on the stock market has been 18 times greater under Democratic presidents (If you invested $100k for 40 years of Republican administrations you had $126k at the end, if you invested $100k for 40 years of Democrat administrations you had $3.9M at the end)

    Republican presidents added 2.5 times more to the national debt than Democratic presidents

    The two times the economy steered into the ditch (Great Depression and Great Recession) were during Republican, laissez faire administrations

    They vote for Democrats but never improve their economic status, dumb ass. You know, like most Africans.

    " Want a better economy? Vote Democrat!"
  9. The best economy in history occurred under Reagan.
    The best years of Clinton were with a Republican Congress.
    The worst years of Bush were with a Democrat Congress.
    The best years of Obama are with a Republican Congress.

    What's holding this country together is the fracking on private land, and the Republican-led states.
  10. Most Europeans do not improve their economic status either.
