    Ron Paul is the exception. No one is surprised, I'm sure.

    Spend, spend, spend. Cut. Spend, spend, spend. Cut. Spend, spend, spend.

    Doesn't sound any different than the current occupier of the White House.

    Or the previous.

    Since the GOP is supposedly all about "austerity" these days, what do you guys have to say about these big spenders, one of whom is possibly going to be your next President?

    Is it all just lip service? Are the attacks on Obama and his deficits to be seen as nothing but sheer hypocrisy?

    Is it really just about making empty promises to the rubes to gain power, the American people be damned?

    This is one of many reasons I have stopped voting. They are all big fat liars, and until everyone learns that a politician's actions are more important than any bogus bloviations emanating from his maw, we will keep getting lied to and keep getting bigger national debt and keep getting screwed.

    the 1950's



    the last decade that had a day when our national debt went down.



    republicans/democrats are as irresponsible with our money as a college kid is with their first credit card. but the college kid eventually grows up.
