  1. Wait. Is “yes” bad or good? Same question for “no.”

  2. Yes Is For Bush and the Telecom.

    No is for the People.

    you can kinda tell by the republicans not having any NO votes

    The kicker is, for all the hate republicans have towards liberals Bush just gave the the Democrat tons more than what Hillary left on her bedroom table in the 90s for free!

    Either way we’re screwed, best not to vote for either party you just encourage them.
