    Why don't conservatives and republicans do the one thing that would make them genuine? Why don't they give up the Federal dollars they recieve? Just don't take it. All of the people who carry on about taxes and out of control spending, why don't they just do what a good republican should and pay their own way? If they did, there would be no need to raise any taxes, in fact, we could lower them. You have the power to make your own tax break. Just stop taking anything from the government. That's what you claim to want, government out of your lives but you seem to think you are powerless to do anything about it. You can make it happen. Get your kids in private school or home school. All of you. That would be half the kids in the country. Talk about saving some money! Anyone taking a disability or unemployment check, call in and stop those checks today. All the red welfare states should give up their funding today.

    Really, if republicans just practiced what they preached, their would be no debate. They have the power to do exactly what they claim to want.

    Fact is, they just want those things for OTHER people. They aren't prepared to actually let go of the things that THEY GET.

    What's yours is mine, and what's mine is mine. The Republican slogan.

    That is the whole point. If we could get the republicans off the government teet they hate so much, it would translate to big savings, no deficit, lower taxes. They claim they don't need big government to tell them what to do so why are they waiting for government to tell them what to do? Doesn't add up. Just stop taking what you claim not to want. Your taxes will fall, not disappear completely, but they sure won't go up.

    The Bank bailut money is a prime example. Those millionaires took that money when it was unconditional but when they were told they couldn't give away to their executives in bonuses they started giving it back. Excellent example. Everyone should follow. Don't like government in your business? Don't take the money. It's the republican creed. Live up to it and you can make it happen instead of waiting around for the government to do it for you.

    Truth: The Republican Party comes from the Federalist Party, which claims to believe in "states' rights", but in fact believes in a strong federal government.

    Alexander Hamilton is the founding father of what is now called the Republican Party. He believed the elites should be in control and it was his idea that only wealthy land owners should vote and/or participate in government.


    Don't be fooled: The Republican Party has always been for federal control. Always.

    I can't think of any federal involvement in state and local issues that has been to the benefit individual states and localities.

    Jindal is a politician, so is Sanford. There you go again, looking to government to take you by the hand and show you how to not apply for a government check. Do you want government doing for you or not? YOU have the power. Why does Jindal have to do it for you? As a republican, just stop asking for and taking government money.
