Yes they are, they are calling the shots.

The best we can do is keep everything split until 2016.

“The government will take from the “haves” and give to the “have nots.” [When this happens] Both have lost their freedom. Those who “have,” lost their freedom to give voluntarily of their own free will and in the way they desire. Those who “have not”, lost their freedom because they did not earn what they received. They got “something for nothing,” and they will neither appreciate the gift nor the giver of the gift”.

Interesting now that you want to make it personal.Fundamentals? its hard for me to divide what pisses me off and give you an honest opinion.I just think we took a nose dive when Bill Clinton was president till now. I am getting older now and I think who we are electing in D.C. is getting more pathetic each year. it seems to me we are just getting dumber and more jaded every year.
