    There is absolutely no way that any true Libertarian would pick Barack Obama over GW Bush as a better President. Obama has created massive govt. expansion and spending. Bush cut taxes and Obama is raising them. No Libertarian supports larger govt and higher taxes.

    QUOTE Goobieman;

    The increase in entitlement speniding under The Obama is, alone, greater than the cost of the wars.
    What entitlement spending are you talking about?
    And, by defintion, tax cuts cannot be funded.
    My bad, I should have said unfunded wars and tax cuts being put into effect without finding a way to make up make up for the lost revenue.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    What lost revenue? Govt. revenue has grown every year AFTER tax cuts. Not sure where you get your talking points but I suggest a change in sources. What do your sources tell you the cost of the two wars were? Then I will give you he amount the U.S. Treasury paid.

    Interesting. .umm tax rate was cut in 1925 to 25% from 46% the year before, three years later wooops. Great Depression. The next time was in 1988 from 50% two years later and 38.5% , Woops three years later recession. Tax cuts during the Bush Presidency Woops, what is being termed as the Great Recession. Not sure about you but when the GDP delines thats lost revenue . .

    My source is the federal government historical records.

    My source is the federal government historical records.
    Then post them, mine comes from the U.S. Treasury and Bureau of Economic Analysis. The Reagan tax cuts were passed in August 1981, not 1988 and went down 10-10-5% over three years. By the way, JFK cut taxes as well. It wasn't the tax cuts that caused the recession but as a Libertarian I am sure you would have loved keeping more of your money although I doubt you are a Libertarian as no Libertarian given the choice would take Obama over Bush in a Presidential Preference Poll.

    I asked how much his source says the Iraq War cost. You tell me then I will give you the U.S. Treasury numbers and since it is the Treasury that is the checkbook of the United States, guess which one I will believe?
