    “I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government to the genuine principles of its Constitution; I mean an article, taking from the Federal government the power of borrowing.”-Thomas Jefferson

    Brutus: if only the liberals had listened to him then or Newt later or the Tea Party now. Throughout American History Republicans have generally supported fiscal responsibility while liberals have opposed.
