    Circular. You need to define "small govt"

    Is it a govt with few (and how many is "few") employees? Less spending? Less power (and if so, which powers?), etc?

    IMO, there are no "real" small govt politicians just as there are no "real" conservatives and no real "free markets". These are just terms rightwingers make up to rationalize their failures and their selfishness

    Do you realize how one sided your comments are and that each one can be said about the other political view side?
    If serving in the military is important, then Obama would never have been elected. Maybe we should make it a requirement to run for the Office of the President. That would change the field, and for the better.

    Let's see.. President Kerry. President McCain. Yes, it would have changed the field no doubt. No president Reagan, president.. who?

    That's a pretty hard position to stick up for when Congress Disapproval ratings are 88%...

    The only problem is that politicians that don’t go along with the spend and borrow formula are less likely to be elected as they can’t buy votes.
    Sorry, more of a generic slam against the political class in general.

    Perhaps a hunter for the banning of all hunting would have been a better example.

    Not really. Expats have this problem somewhat regularly. It has to deal with how the employer reports the income. Expats not declaring certain income and paying taxes on it is actually so common that all of the big four accounting firms have large departments designed specifically to deal with expatriot tax issues. It's that complex. So I'm willing to give Geithner a pass on this. I hear my firm's expat department is not a place you want to be.

    we aren't talking about expats, we are talking about the secretary of treasurer. Its analogous to a nun getting pregnant.

    furthermore, he knew of the back tax issue because he was informed of his non-compliance, and chose to not deal with it until after being named treasurer.

    I disagree with Bachman totally. It has been a circus. Nothing substantive gets done. Everything is political instead of making real attempts to fix the countries problems. The Republicans want Obama policies to fail so they will look better at election time. The "banksters" are still situated all over inside the gov't. Personally, I think we are in a 20 year depression with no viable solution and no real representation. It's all about money and corporations and screw the voter. You know, "business as usual." SOP. I'm still voting "Green", even if it's a wasted vote. You have to protest somewhere.
