    In our country we have usally pick our president depending on party. Each party has their own moral beliefs. One big issue is whether we should rise taxes or lower them. The democarts usally are the ones that want to higher taxes. Yes rising taxes gives more money for government programs. it also gives more money to the government for other uses. on the flip side the republicans believe in lowering taxes. depending on the type of tax, it will be less money out of each persons wallot. which means more money can go toward nessecity. it also gives people more money to spend on goods which will in the long run give more money to the government. it also would lower taxes to busness which would give the ability to expand the busness. in my last thread i asked what the unemployment rate. i went through the years as taxes were lowered more people were employed. which would lower the use of government programs. this would also give more money to pay for road work and other things. also no matter what your views are it would give the soldiers over in iraq more sucurity so we as america can protect and invest in protection for the men and women fighting for america.

    Taxes are only one side of the balance sheet. The other side is spending.

    It may be that the GOP believes in lower taxes and the Dems higher taxes, but both the GOP and the Dems believe in higher spending. Oh sure, the GOP say they believe in lower spending, but in practice, they increase spending. Believe what they do, not what they say.

    Thus, the Republicans have become the party of deficits and debt. They have become the party of fiscal irresponsibility when they used to be the party of fiscal discipline.

    Since both parties are for higher spending and deficits are merely tax increases in the future - and even higher taxes due to the wonders of compound interest - I'd rather be for the party of higher taxes and a stronger fiscal position. Structural deficits distort the economy and create imbalances as well as increases taxes on our children.

    Its sad what the Republican Party has become.

    congress is democratic and that means that the democrats are right where republicans are on spending so since the congress is democratic if the issue is spending it is the democrats.

    Awesome. A Republican-pothead online persona. I sorely think the site was lacking one of these....

    Desperate people will do desperate things. That is why marijuana is legal for midicinal purposes in some states.

    Congress spends billions of dollars a year earmarked for no nothing projects that could never improve the lives of the public, rich or poor. If we really wanted to cut spending and the deficit then we have to stop spending billions of dollars on personal projects of Congress members and other pork projects. A Republican congress member wanted to put a one year moritorium on any earmarked projects. But Nancy Pelosi would not agree to it. It seems that we really do not want to cut spending or the national debt, or we would take steps to improve the problem.

    If you don't have a sufficient majority, you can be blocked by the other party in many efforts.

    This particular group of Dems have inbred too much with the current repubs.
