A few months ago I started a thread about how liberalism has won. Of course everyone laughed at me since rebublicans control the senate, the house, and the executive branch. The problem of course is that republicans have become progressively more liberal than they once were. Every politician in Washington is a big spending big govt. piece of trash. The question is no long should we grow govt. but how much should we grow it. It's no longer should we spend, but how much we should spend. It's getting out of control. Stupid nanny state laws are being passed all over the country. Hardcore smoking bans, stupid seatbelt laws etc... Our republican controlled federal govt. has taken a lax approach to the border situation. This latest nonsense with the national guard is just window dressing and they know it. They just signed a bill that will give social security benefits to illegal aliens. Talk about a stupid concept. "Hey! It's illegal to come here! But you're guaranteed to get great benefits if you make it!" Stupid stupid stupid...they take one step forward and 3 steps back with legislation like that. OK since you all think I'm some anti-republican liberal let the flaming commence now.
