If you are the central authority in an economy and you increase the tax on a certain behavior, then you want to discourage that behavior.
If you reduce the tax on a behavior, then you want to encourage it.
The cheaper some good or behavior is, then more people will do it.
George W. Bush claims he wants to encourage a culture of life, and "life" in general (I wonder if he uses antibacterial soap?).
George W. Bush and the republican party are extremely opposed to taxing inheritance, which they believe to be a "death tax".
Therefore, the republican party and George W. Bush believe they are using economic policy to encourage death.
Therefore George W. Bush is lying when he says he wants to create a culture of life. If that were true, he would sharply increase the death tax, to discourage death. Ostensibly, George W. Bush is using economic policy to encourage as many Americans to die as soon as possible.
George W. Bush believes anyone who wants as many Americans to die as soon as possible is a terrorist.
Therefore, George W. Bush believes himself to be a terrorist.
Therefore George W. Bush, who claims to be both in favor of a "Culture of Life" and an enemy of all terrorists is both pro-death and a terrorist, which we know from his choice of economic policies.
