    Head Start is a good program too. Of course, that just ends up meaning that the GOP is trying to kill it.

    Yes, some of these programs can be good but most will be unsustainable because of other unnecessary programs that's chewing up the dollars. The US is, as you must know, almost $17 trillion in debt, and climbing, and this cannot continue. But it will until it hits the wall.

    There is also no second generation in numbers sufficient enough (think 55 million abortions) to pay all the bills that will be required for the aging boomers, so those programs you care about will have to be cut or abandoned.

    No matter what political philosophy you might envision or adhere to, sooner or later realitywill kick in.

    That's just a goofy opinion piece.

    Why not quote what Republicans actually say regarding their programs rather than going through a third party? Can't you just get the facts and allow your own opinions to evolve from them?

    That wasn't really the point of that post. The point was simply to show how the GOP takes a crap on anything even remotely good.

    It seems like you have a decision to make here. Either you post your own opinions here and we debate them or you have a third party do them for you. As it is impossible for posters here to debate third parties, so you might want to give that some thought.

    Money is only theory now days. There is no longer a gold standard, so to speak.

    Inflation will cure our deficit.

    When government building were first built in Washington dc the total cost was less than a million dollars. Now that much is spent on a restroom in a government building.

    Since it is theoreticaly impossibe to run out of numbers we have nothing to worry about.

    In my lifetime I remember a one penny piece of fudge candy that cost one dollar and fifty cents today.

    What me worry. Let the printing presses roll.

    Think of it as talking to the hand.
