Given the choice I have the Republican side is at least closer to being "my side" because it is the only side that promotes private industry and really doesn't care how much money you or someone else makes. There is only "one side" that seems to worry more about how much someone else pays in taxes vs. how those tax dollars are spent.

    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?
    any talks of cutting anything, will have to be with the understanding that EVERYTHING will have to face the sharp edge of the axe...not just the so called 'entitlement' programs...i've explained this before, nothing can be a 'sacred cow'...

    There is plenty of room to cut the budget as soon as the people realize that much of the Federal spending is on programs that are already in the states. the role of the Federal govt. really is to defend this country but the Federal Govt. has taken on the social responsibility role and that is a mistake.

    Yep, you got it, I'm against those things!

    Seriously, do you just post whatever bumper sticker comes into your mind or do you actually "think" about the words you type?

    I'm against spending money WE DO NOT HAVE on things we cannot afford. Obama is going to try and play the "We have to spend money on these critical issues" all the while ignoring that much of his agenda is the reason we're so much further in debt.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    There is no question in my mind that Barack Obama took over GM/Chrysler to save the union contracts for he knew that bankruptcy meant renegotiation of those contracts and thus they would never survive. Everyone knows that bankruptcy would not have put these companies out of business but instead would have hurt the unions and their pension funds. A lot of companies have survived bankruptcy to come back stronger. Obama employed the scare tactics again and far too many bought another Obama lie.

    There is no question in my mind that there is no question in your mind about this situation. Why is it difficult... no change that ... why is it impossible for you to believe that the President may have taken strong action to do what is best for the nation - and that includes both the company and its workers?

    I know ... silly question.

    How is losing billions of dollars in the best interest of the nation? Do you understand how bankruptcy works?
