quote:There is absolutely NO leadership in Washington. The R's in Washington are more concerned with winning the PR battle instead of winning on principle. Being a leader requires individuals to sometime make unpopular(not necessarily wrong) decisions. As much as the spineless R's piss me off the Dem's are even worse. They refuse to even admit there is a problem with government spending....how out of touch is that?
In the last week, three senior members of the Republican Party have told me that the House GOP is making a dire mistake to think voters will consider this “the president’s sequester.” Yes, the White House proposed the gimmick, but only as a way to avert a GOP-backed debt crisis, and the House Republican leadership supported sequestration. More broadly, there is no way to seriously reduce the U.S. debt without more revenue, which means raising taxes.
yup, and foolishly they can't seem to see that they will NEVER win the PR battle.

Politics (the art of power) has little to do with principle.
Here's the problem -- Odumbf*ck isn't proposing ANY cuts in spending. He wants MORE and MORE and MORE taxes so that he can spend twice the amount to buy off his campaign contributors and the leeches in our society so they'll keep voting Democrap.
So, more taxes isn't going to do anything to the debt -- IN FACT, it will only act to increase it.
Reagan disagrees, as do I, he also never won the PR battle, but he did what was right and enough people were cognizant of that to keep him in power, because principles work they just generally take time to prove out.
Oh really? Then why has our economy been virtually stagnant in terms of wages since the 70s?
quote:This is why our country is in trouble. Why the hell is it always democrats vs. republicans? They were elected to do the same damn job. The level of division is disgusting. Both parties actively work to tear the other down rather than building the country up.
This is why the Republican party is in trouble.....

biggest problem is the mass media not telling the whole truth and keeping citizens uninformed of this maddness
