Ted Rall calls George W. Bush a liberal, in that he is changing things very quickly. W ran as a "compassionate conservative," which couldn't be farther from the truth. One good point that Rall makes is that W is actually raising taxes for most Americans: The budget crises facing almost every state and local government in the country will result in higher taxes at those levels. And most state income and sales taxes are flat rate, not progressive, so these affect poor and middle-class people as much as rich people, while W's federal tax cut went mainly to the rich.
