    It's been since 1952 since we had a day where our national debt decreased. How come the voters get a pass on this issue? If it were important enough to us, we would simply vote those out that governed in a manner that increased our debt (and would consistently do so until we had only politicians who governed in a fiscally responsible manner).

    How come we get a pass and then get to blame the people that WE voted into office (since both parties have run up massive debt, that would be most of us)? Sure, they should get a ton of blame, but how come the people who put them there get to pass the blame and then sit around and complain like we're not complicit?

    I didnt vote in any of shitbags. Except for Obama. What a fucking mistake that was. I blame it on his outright lies and mistruths he told to get elected.


    Any other instance and who I choose never wins. Paul prolly wont win either, but Im gonna keep swinging till the end.

    I dont accept any blame there either. It was Obama or McCain. I have ZERO doubts that anything would be better under McCain. Probably much worse.

    it's the congress that spends the money. that's what the OP was mainly about (although the president does have an affect).

    "We" don't get a pass. However, only some of us are responsible, not all of us. I blame all the parasites in this country for the debt on a daily basis. However, you'll never see a politician do that.

    the D's and R's have run up our debt every day since 1952. shouldn't the voters who voted for D's and R's, during that period, get a huge chunk of the blame?
