    Thanks.
    Nope. Never have.

    I am very pro death penalty. I stated quite clearly in 2011 that Obama should NOT run for re-election. I want the smallest government possible. I am against deficit spending in anything other than a war or depression emergency. I believe in paying our bills. I think all of working age capable of work should work. My position on foreign affairs is very close to that of Ron Paul - a noted libertarian and conservative.

    Ok, thank for the clarification.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    And - as you know from our discussion in the past - I DO NOT approve of the deficit and the debt and want us to stop digging and start climbing out of the hole.
    Christianity teaches neighbor helping neighbor not creation of a massive central govt. that helps itself and collapses under its own weight. The only true benefit from a massive central govt goes to the bureaucrats who keep their jobs because of it.

    Deficits didn't matter as much when the debt was less than 60% of GDP, it exceeds 100% of GDP today and you don't seem to understand the problems that creates. Glad to hear that people like you now support Dick Cheney though as apparently you believe that authorizes the Federal Govt. to put Bush spending on steroids.

    True....Jesus was all for charity, however, not at the tip of a Roman spear.

    And there are many ways to achieve the same end. Like it or not, we live in an age when we as a people have delegated to government some of the things that we used to do ourselves and we pay for that through taxation or fees. Helping those who need help is but one example.

    Tell me who the 17 trillion in debt benefits? What you continue to promote is spending in the NAME of compassion ignoring that the only compassion being generated is to the bureaucrats that administer the programs. We have about 250 billion a year in debt service and that is going to skyrocket when inflation hits and it will so tell me again about that compassionate spending?

    I have repeatedly stated that I do not favor a debt if we are not in war or facing some huge catastrophe like the great depression. I favor paying for it.

    Do you favor paying for it?

    I substantiated my post with fact in 151. You responded with your usual personal vitriol.
