    Yes, I do just like I realize that taxes aren't the problem, spending is as well as the priorities of liberalism which destroys incentive and creates dependency.

    Economic growth via freedom to invest. I think you're confusing 'progressive' with 'statist'. Are we to presume that any downsizing of government or tax is regressive? What are we then progressing towards?

    There is good spending and bad spending. Dropping bombs on a country that didn't attack you is bad spending. Spending that creates wealth and jobs is good spending.

    It was GWB's income tax cuts that created the tax regime in which 47% of Americans pay no federal income taxes.

    The government can't create weath, nor jobs.
