about reducing the deficit?
quote:You still seem confused.
And it certainly didn t matter to Right Wingers when the GOP was cutting taxes & dragging the US into 2 wars without the ability to pay.
What we have is a revenue problem that can be easily fixed by going back to the rates we had under Clinton
You still seem confused.
Many conservatives have always cared about over spending. Hence, why tea party folks started to try and run off GOPers who were spendthrifts themselves.
dragging the US into 2 wars without the ability to pay.
quote:You seem to be having difficulty with the word "many" and what it means.
How the frick did bush get re-elected then?
quote:That group had the choice of one spendthrift and another, bigger spendthrift.
he won the "conservative" vote.
quote:Me thinks you hit upon why conservatives have sucked it up and voted for Republicans in the past.
The republicans are only pushing for smaller gov't b.c obama spends like two drunken sailor on leave, as opposed to bush's single drunken sailor
quote:I COMPLETELY agree. But, I addressed how conservatives feel. Conservatives unfortunately, have been given two choice for quite some time. Bad and worse. They've tended to pick bad.
Republicans are not the party of smaller gov't. That party doesn't exist.
quote:Why would they get serious when they were voted voted back into office by the 51% of voters who don't care about the deficit? They can do whatever they want when the majority of voters doesn't care---in fact, lauds them for it. So they'll continue to redistribute money they don't have, portraying themselves as Robin Hood heroes, until the whole shebang comes crashing down.
When will the democrats get serious...about reducing the deficit? Shouldn't this be their opportunity to demonstrate that they are the grown ups in the room?
You seem to be having difficulty with the word "many" and what it means.
quote:Dude. LOTS of conservative decried a LOT of that shite. No child left behind...the prescription drug plan. Shit, where were you?
They didn't scream about his spending, in fact, they defended it. Repeatedly
quote:Agreed, but it didn't.
If the tea party movement had arisen in 2003 instead of 2009....we might not have this horrible deficit/debt to deal with.
quote:Which again is the reason that the conservatives in the masses just tended to vote for the least bad of two choices.
Democrats, and obama share a lot of the blame too but you know, you expect throwing cash around from the democrats.
Dude. LOTS of conservative decried a LOT of that shite. No child left behind...the prescription drug plan. Shit, where were you?
Sadly, I really don't think a true "conservative" candidate is the answer either because the whole fricking population is addicted the the Federal TIT. Even many people who think of themselves as "conservative" Truth is, many "conservatives" are just liberals who like different spending.
I agree. This is why i stopped caring who wins. Won't matter, we are so fricked and we are all addicted to spending.
