    Establishment media seems to have bred a few Mitt Romney supporters after all, who now spout off about how Romney is an expert in managing capital, being a capitalist. yet these fox news types talk all the time about how government should stay out of money/capitalism. so which one is it?

    Curious why you think either would be government's primary role?

    "with liberty and justice for ALL" - Maybe that may ring a bell for you.

    Balancing the budget would make it considerably easier to accomplish both goals.

    Protecting rights, defending the country, and ensuring the freedom of the citizenry.. those are the primary charges of the government

    Government is not there to primarily manage capital, or equalize outcome, or be your mommy, or wipe your snotty nose when you cry that someone hurt your feelings, or make you healthy, or keep you from eating twinkies, etc

    You sound like the one who had his bell rung.

    So some of the words of the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag, and thereby our republic, somehow translates to you that the primary role of our government is either managing capital or preserving justice? Hmmm....

    Anyway, my question still stands if you can think of anything.

    Do you know the difference between "is" and "should be"?
    Try to read the title thread again, you're starting to sound like T
