* - very likely the motivation for the GOP's anti-abortion agenda
One of these days, GOP voters are gonna have to turn off their TV and open a journal. But then. . ."Even so, Mr. Bush ran up the biggest increase in the National Debt of any American president. The Debt was $5.727-trillion on his first day in the White House. And on the day he left, it was $10.626-trillion. That means the Debt increased by $4.899-trillion on his watch."

You should look up the word "subsidies." Just because FOXNews never mentioned it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

i like the idea of allowing only those people who pay taxes to vote. If you want to vote at the federal level, for the president, senators and your representatives than show that you paid taxes. If you got more back than you paid through the wealth redistribution schemes like the earned income tax credit, then no vote for you. Only the revenue providers should be allowed to vote for their representatives. Tax consumers should not be allowed to vote.
We could begin with a 1% immediate reduction. We do not need to borrow 14 trillion dollars. Let's begin retiring the debt. Let's retake control of the entitlement programs. Let's decide how much we can spend each year, then spend that much and no more. Let's slash social security. The greedy geezers have taken vast amounts of their children's wealth away from them. It is time to reign in the tyranny from the old. We must rein in their historic greed.
Next we need to get the government completely out of health care. Let's eliminate medicare and medicaid. Let's repeal Obamacare. Completely. Let get rid of the extra-constitutional departments that run those monsters. Completely. That should cut the size of government in half.
Let's sell of most of the Federal lands. That should bring in some revenues.
