    Welcome to the USMB.

    And it doesn't confuse people, there's just very few on the left who will believe you. If you criticize this menstruation -- no matter how fair or factually correct the criticism is, you're a "right wing extremist."

    I've gotten some hate mail from a few "conservatives" in here...not as much as the liberals but I get some.

    I can't help it if I liked Clinton's Balanced budget and hate obama's defecit spending more than I hated Bush's defecit spending.

    I can't help that I dont trust the govt with my health care

    I can't help that I hate the patriot act.

    I can't help that the republicans in congress annoy me as much as the democrats.

    Its not my fault i try to see things through reason and not ideology.


    Ok time for someone to STFU :lol:

    I have and here was where it happened recently. My political changes have been questioned. I will not call myself a conservative because the ones that do are today an embarrassment to this country. Mostly in government but also some who have crossed my path on message boards.

    Rejecting what passes for modern day conservatism does not make one a liberal as some might believe. There are many shades of gray in between the two warring political factions.

    Technically it wasn't his. He obeyed the law which WAS the budget be balanced. He used the tools given to accomplish this, such as line-item veto. These of course were taken away from him and all future Presidents late in his last term, by the courts.

    The "credit" for Clinton's "surplus" goes to Gramm-Rudman, Line-Item veto and of course the very strict Paygo they had back then. Clinton was just along for the ride.

    Thanks guys.... Clinton never really had a "surplus" -- only a "projected surplus" which never really happened.
