Doesn't austerity mean frugal? I would think that would be something good, wouldn't it? They are the party of theft and recklessness.
As long as you can maintain your independence, you will also maintain your ability to analize statements made that have no merit.
Mark has found a way to accomplish that feat.
Too many in the political arena have become enslaved to certain principles that have actually muted creative ideas.
We are NOT Greece... yet. We can still put the breaks on and fix this thing.
Austerity is for adolescent countries that refuse to grow up and can't manage their money. They need austerity because they are immature and irresponsible. Save a place for France btw... they're next on the list.
The loss of understanding what belongs under our republic and what belongs under our democratic process is what leads to this .. confusion.
And it's all thanks to our loss of public virtue, and the 17th Amendment mentality.
Obama will never pull off the argument that his policies are that of "growth". Anyone dumb enough to believe him will vote for him anyway.
We do need growth, but I don't see any way to grow our way out of this mess. We have to have austerity, too. We are just too deep in the crapper.
When Mark played that audio tonight of Boehner agreeing with Stephanopoulos about not letting people leave the country and renounce their citizenship to avoid paying taxes, I was floored. Boehner was put in his position by Tea Party Patriots, and this is how he behaves? He sounded like he was slurring his speech also, I don't think Mark noticed that, but I did.
Will Ohio ever vote this man out? He is such a problem. We'll never fix what's wrong in this country, if the Boehner keeps getting elected. If Republicans continue to hold the House and more Constitutionalists are voted in, they have got to remove Boehner. He should be in Ohio tending bar. I just can't stand him. He's always going on these commie Sunday shows. Is he a commie? I think he is.
Welcome to the club. You might be interested in Mark America's latest, on the subject of republican 'collaborators': http://markamerica.com/2012/05/19/our-crisis/ Warning: it is not pro-Romney.
You will never hear a politician Right or Left want these defunded because their friends and family are within the Federal Entitlement Programs listed here. The humor kicks in when you read the titles of some of them, enjoy.
Holy crap! I'd need to take a vacation just to have time to read through the names of the departments. Yet, they can't find anything to cut. This is absurd. Eliminate 3/4 of these agencies for starters.
Oh, God. This is worse than I thought. And they say they can't cut? Boy, do we need a George Washington, and fast. Mitt Romney is not the answer. He's going to do nothing but manage the mess for the next four years, and then he'll try to win again, or try to pave the way for another Rhino. We are in deep trouble with this government. It needs a bulldozer taken to it!
With a few exceptions, conservatism is represented on TV by the spineless, the clueless, and the statist.
The left's New World Dictionary:
growth = more spending
revenue = more taxes
fair share = gut them till it hurts
illegal immigrant = undocumented worker
middle class = new poverty level
welfare state = safety net
medicare/social security programs = Government ATMs
equality = for me, not for thee
Constitution = doodle paper
Not necessarily. The right is for cutting wasteful government spending, defecit spending, or cutting it from its current absurd level that have almost every household enduring some form of austerity..
"the Right cuts Government spending"
When was that? I must have missed it...I saw Paul Ryan on Meet the Press Sunday, but he said The Republicans only wanted to "reduce the rate of increase in spending."
Cutting spending would be eliminating five federal bureaucracies and $1 trillion in one year, and balancing the budget after three. I don't think Mitt Romney and the Ryan Republicans are proposing that, though...sad...
