    I'm sorry, but WWII was justified; Iraq was not. being a volunteer does not excuse the CIC from being reckless.

    Objectively, as I already stated, fighting two wars without the means to pay for them hurt us. This is not hard to follow. Hard to dispute, but not hard to follow.

    tax cuts fix the economy of those being soaked so their wealth can be used to buy the votes of the parasites. That is good enough for me.

    I don't buy into the crap that some should be forced to carry most of the weight of the rest of the population.

    I know that we cannot tax our way to prosperity and if you tax the productive too much they leave and the parasites starve

    libs or alleged moderates tend to be rather ignorant of history-until the end of the Hoover (what a great name for a tax hiking moron) income taxes were non-existent or rates that were under 5% paid by very few.

    That is the only thing that can explain such blatant errors

    I thought your point was that WWII was necessary and Iraq was not

    and we have the means to pay for them-we just have to get rid of all the unconstitutional crap the government does-ie the stuff that started with FDR's power grab

    That's one point, but not finanacial point we're discussing. But it is not an opinion about the neccesity of Iraq either. There is no objective reasoning that justifies the cost of Iraq. None.

    The U.S. needs to reduce spending and increase taxes to survive. This is the most basic factor at play in the current economy.

    The years of luxury and spending beyond one's means are over. Time to buckle down and pay your dues.

    Your opinion noted-again not shared

    there is no objective reasoning that justifies the costs of

    1) the war on poverty
    2) the war on drugs
    3) affirmative action
    4) The "Great Society"
    5) "The New Deal"

    so lets jack up taxes on the people who drive the spending and don't pay enough since they are the ones who vote for most of that reckless spending.

    the rich pay far more than their dues-they pay the dues of about half or more of society

    time for the slackers to step up ot the plate
