“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
There is idiotic spending on both sides but there is only one party spending less than the other and to me that is an improvement. You have to work within the party to make changes because one part is so organized and brainwashed that if you destroy the Republican Party you have permanent Democratic leadership and the march towards Europe
It would be a great exercise for you to fill in the line items I gave you and see what you come up with for a budget. Bet it isn't 3.77 trillion as Obama wants
Imagine an insurance company that triples your rates for several years, for no reason at all, then says they will cut your rate in half and claims that they are cutting insurance rates faster than any company in history. Do you know anyone with at least half a brain that would applaud this?

I have not approved of nor supported Obama's spending. However, I also don't approve of spending on idiotic things like the wars we have fought and social conservative issues such as the war on drugs. When I see a con or GOP member willing to drop the social conservative spending, then I'll take them seriously in them wanting responsible spending.
Wouldn't it be great if we lived in a world where radical people didn't want us dead?

The problem is you think government should interfere in morality.
By the way, radical people knocked down the WTC at a cost of over a trillion dollars and taking about 3000 lives. What would you have done about it?
You didn't like Iraq, so what? The money has been spent, the cost in lives and treasure counted, now what? Looking backward is what people like you always do assigning blame and never taking responsibility. You tell me that you didn't vote for Obama in 2008? You telling me you don't support his social initiatives?
As for the govt. interfering in morality, what do you think Obama is doing now?
