    Perhaps so, but I have faith. I just know we are going to be faced with tough choices, and an even harder time fighting for solutions from either camp.

    Poll shows Americans oppose entitlement cuts to deal with debt problem

    I have to wonder how many of those who oppose entitlement cuts are sucking at the teet of the taxpayer.
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    Many of us, Ron. One man's "entitlement program" that "is wasteful/harmful" is another's justified livelihood that they would protect at all costs.

    I don't remember who said this (and it's not a direct quote) but it went something like this:

    "This experiment in self government will fail when the people realize they can vote themselves money from the public fund."

    I think that was some guy wearing a halloween costume with a three cornered hat and carrying a badly worn calendar from the 1700's.
