    Republicans used to be a partner in governing, but have become Haters of all things governmental. Their Hate has made them enemies of government, and that is why our government no longer works. Republicans should either help make government work, or get out of it.

    :lol:

    Hate. Yea, ok, that's an impressive display of stupid for a first post. Hysterical hyperbole from someone that has yet to work out that there is no 'middle class' in America. There is no 'working class' either... we are not a class based society.

    So, my question must be, why are you dumb enough to allow politicians to spoon feed you bullshit about your fellow Americans?

    Idiot.

    To a true "conservative" (I would actually start calling them federalists now) the problem isn't "government" it is that the federal government is doing it has no authority to do. There has been a massive mis-appropriation of state level tasks up to the federal level, creating duplicate buracracies and inflating the level of government past a sustainable level. The federal government, to a federalist, was never meant to provide a retirement program, medical care, educational instruction, and a bunch of other tasks. To a federalist these are best left to the states.

    There are certain modern functions I see that the feds should handle, EPA, Transport, etc to me cross state lines and effect commerce so I can see a federal role, but they need to be more legislatively based, and not via burecratic fiat.
