Do you hate the Democrats for the way they are responding to the $14 trillion debt?

    You should, they seemingly don't care that the country is, effectively, bankrupt, and so the liberals must now print money to pay for most of their idiotic liberal welfare programs. There is no free lunch but the liberals don't know it. They do know, however, that if they can't buy votes by always promising more and more programs they will have lost their reason for being.

    As usually it is the Republicans who are acting as mature adults trying to cut spending to stave off real bankruptcy.
    Why don't we make liberals illegal as our Founders intended when they wrote the Constitution to stand for very limited government .

    Brutus, we do agree, the debt sucks. My kid will be paying off our credit card like spending.

    About the banning of political thoughts, our founding fathers did not want to make any ideology illegal. It is a free speech thing.

    First say the fiscal policies of Reagan, Reagan, Bush, Bush, and Bush lead to ridiculously high deficits and that you love Bill Clinton for being the only President I remember with a balanced budget under him. THEN we are allowed to talk economic theory.

    It is a misrepresentation to say clinton had a balanced budget. GWB took office they were calling it the clinton recession. The reason clinton's budget was even close to balanced was a republican congress. For a thug though he did know how to work with the repubs. I hated clinton because he was a lying sack of shit and a womanizer who violated the sanctity of the oval office, remember Monica?

    You are so full of crap. The only time conservatives give a shit about the deficit is when there's a Democrat in office.

    don't forget that its liberal debt!!!


    insane!!! The Constitution made many ideologies illegal!!!


    more insanity!!! Republicans since Jefferson have been for a Balanced Budget Amendment!! Democrats have always opposed it.
    Clinton had one because he was so disgusting that the Republicans took the House for the first in in 40 Years and forced it and a shut down, and a Balanced BUdget down his throat. They made him say, "the era of big government is over.' Democrats are obvious liars.

    Just last month the Republicans introduced one in the Senate. Only 10 Democrats voted for it. Are you catching on now??

    First of all. The Oval office isn't sacrosanct. You're mixing up the President and the Pope. If it were, then the President would be sacrosanct - ordained by God. Welcome to America, the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution puts the kabash on that idea.

    Note: Just about every President, including George Washington had extramarital affairs: Grow up little boy!

    As far as the rest of your argument: Reagan and Bush ballooned the deficit, Clinton balanced the budget. That's all there is to it. You can try any twisted logic you want, but that's the reality.

    check your history!! Republicans since Jefferson have been for a Balanced Budget Amendment. Republicans want the shut down not libs. Republicans want to cut not libs.


    The Republican Jeffersonian philosophy is all about freedom and liberty from big government so they'd be fine with cuts. Democrats depend 100% on buying votes with promises of more and more welfare programs to replace the failing ones..

    I am grown up, a balanced budget and a deficit are different. Clinton had sex in the oval office and flat out lied about it, and lied to everybody's face on t.v. Sorry, he was a piece of doo doo.

    Brutus, was Ronald Reagan that much of an economic and communications failure that he was for a balanced budget and failed so miserably?

    Yes.

    And I never got past the "Do you hate Democrats for......." opening line.
