    And hes been given 1 trillion to spend. Thats a cap, not a requirement. He has the power to spend less. He chooses not to.

If he cant handle the job, lets get someone in there who can.
    When you become POTUS, you'll be better able to make such judgements.

    What parts do you think he should skimp on and not pay for..... that the congress isn't going to just let run out anyway? (Infrastructure)

    Don't worry, your state and local taxes will go up to make up the difference....

    Do you not think this is being done... and Congress is the one who has to authorize spending, surely they also bear some responsibility for the matter?

    That's what ravaged Europe and turned it into a sea of government dependency. Greece, Spain, Portugual are just the first to fall. It'll spread like cancer from there.

    And the same tactics are infiltrating our nation, too.



    Believe whatever you want to believe, it will have zero effect on reality and won't put a GOPer in the White House.

    Wait and see.

    He's a bottom feeder.

    Of course not.

    Government-dependent is not a badge of shame in Europe. It's an expectation. As soon as that is the case here (the demographics are changing rapidly as you say), then it'll be just the same here.

    It's called lowering the bar for the lowest common denominator. And there's a rapidly growing lowest common denominator.

    The greatness of this country is fading fast.

    I see a huge decline in the greatness of the GOP coming up in the not-distant future.

    I don't see any similar signs for the USA.

    You don't? We're slipping in every category known to man, and you call that progress?

    The complete disintegration of the American family, a vastly undereducated youth, a deteriorating work ethic, and a growing dependence on government to wipe our collective asses.

    The only thing good about it is it's culling the herd for my kids. There are so many young adults walking the streets with 3rd-grade educations, it's dumbfounding, yet they've got that high school diploma somehow. Most American minorities are falling further and further behind in most every category, despite the fact that the political party they blindly support is winning elections at a record pace.

    It's criminal.

    And Congress had the power to give him less. They chose not to. The Government spends too much, both parties. To try to put the blame on one man or one party is nothing more then following your Flock Masters of choice. that's one of the biggest problems in this Country, people are blind of the bad in their own chosen flock and think it's all the fault of the other flock.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.
