    Also, I don't know if I really agree that spending and economic policy is determined by what people vote or believe. I think if anything there's a lot of data that suggests there is a wide gap between what most voters believe should be done and what is actually done. The deal that seems to be coming out of this fiscal cliff seems to be completely the opposite of what voters believe should be the result of any deal.
    They are getting exactly what they want. The American population has flipped from one of self reliance and responsibility, to one that is now dependent on government. It's all about freebees, the more freebees you promise you will get elected. What you are seeing now Obama wants only tax increases that will at the most bring in around 600 billion over 10 yrs. He is borrowing and spending 1.2 trillion a yr, now he will continue to borrowing and spend 1.2 trillion as that 60 billion he gets in tax increases will go toward more freebees.

    Yes...those self reliant boomers wedged between those "wanting freebies" generations that preceeded them and came after them.

    Yes, continue to lie and distort our position and see if it works for you as well as it did in November.

    No, really, I want you to do it. The only institution we need to regain control of is the House.

    The only corporate welfare needed is for those in power who've manufactured and pepertuated the anti-private sector anti-rich propaganda to dissappear completely.

    Just go back to your brownstone or row house and live the rest of your miserable lives without pushing your bankrupt ideology on the rest of us.

    Maybe you can point to a single cut in this cliff thing. In fact today he said he's raising taxes on the rich once again. Tax, borrow, spend, freebee liberals. Obama and his balanced approach it tax, tax and tax some more.

    Ever sense the end of WWII you liberals have changed this nation to one of self reliance and responsibility, to one that is now dependent on government. It's all about freebees, the more freebees you promise you will get elected. Now maybe you can tell me what is Obama cutting again. There is nothing, he wants to spend more. Liberal Obama, tax, borrow, spend, and freebees. Yeah drowning this country in debt is the right course for destruction, no different than Spain, Italy, Greece. Soon you'll have the American people screaming in the streets "I demand my entitlements"

    This part of your post is spot on.
    "Ever sense the end of WWII you liberals have changed this nation to one of self reliance and responsibility, "


    What freebees are you talking about that will match Corp freebees that the repubs give away?
