Ron Paul has the most "conservative" voting record of any politician since 1937 and the Republican voters shun him and instead vote for big government Republicans simply because he against preemptive wars.
not having our children come into the world with the equivalent of a mortgage already hanging over their heads is an investment, too. the debt is probably the #1 threat to America's long-term future right now.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
Here are the facts
Reagan Debt 1.7 trillion in 8 years
Clinton debt 1.3 trillion in 8 years
GW Bush debt 4.9 trillion in 8 years
Obama debt 3.5 trillion in 2 years.
Blaming Bush for the Obama spending is partisan and wrong yet many here continue to do that. Deficit spending is deficit spending. Most of that deficit spending comes from entitlements, not discretionary spending. Many here blame the wars or everything else other than the real problem and that is liberal social engineering that takes on personal responsibility issues with the sole purpose of buying votes. It isn't the Government's role to protect people for poor personal choices yet have you ever heard Obama talk about taking personal responsibility for anything?
Too much money was spent during the Bush years although Bush did at least try to address entitlement spending but was rejected by Congress, both RINO's and Democrats. So who is sitting silent? What can we do about the Bush spending now?
