    The National Debt has been rising steadily for decades. We need a comprehensive balanced budget amendment, but that will never happen. And since the two major parties insist on growing the government, expect it to continue to rise. At least we're not as bad as Japan.

    Its risen steadily for, in the most part, understandable reasons, but Bush has doubled it all on his own and thats your boy so stop bulking the Dems with the Cons cause you've had the presidency for 28 out of the past 40 years

    but... but... but... BUSH

    :rolleyes:

    The typical response of an extreme lefty... get off it gtr

    As for the topic... having debt does not mean one is not free... debt is a lien, not an imprisonment, not a contract of indentured service, and building debt is a choice within your freedom... your choices and actions result in whether you have debt or not... the same with the country.. granted the country has made a TON of bad spending choices (Let's spend more taxpayer monies on research into cow farts :rolleyes: ), but it in no way means we are not a free country

    Compare Bush to LBJ. They are almost identical. That's because Bush is a Neoconservative. That's why it's critical to remove the Neoconservatives from the Republican Party or just remove the Republican Party altogether. I would recommend that you familiarize yourself with how the US government creates, modifies and passes budgets. You are blaming Republicans solely for this mess when that is clearly incorrect.

    Oh yeah it's completely crazy to blame those in charge of the nation for what outcomes come out of their policies.

    What ARE these people thinking?

    Don't they know that welfare mothers are completely responsible for the debts?

    I see them driving Esplanades all the time here in Maine.

    They're living high on the hog while the rest of us are struggling.

    Some of their kids even have SHOES!

    Anyone find the numbers for how much all welfare cost this nation every year, yet?

    I can't find that number.

    This board needs a good accountant who can ferret out those numbers from the FED budget.

    Every Prez, DEM or REP has spent... Every Congress, DEM or REP spends on unnecessary crap... so the 'but, but, but BUSH' falls on deaf ears for me...

    But yes... every free person is responsible for their debts... their choices.. their efforts... their spending... their situations... I don't care if it is a welfare queen or a once prominent figure who spent every last cent and is now in the gutter
