    I'd trust the conservatives more to solve the so-called debt crisis , the democrats less.
    Bur the cons ,in their "anti-tax" sickness, will wreck our nation in doing so....particularly the tea baggers ...what do they know about "economy" ???
    This problem is for the highly intelligent to solve, not a bunch of stupid politicians...
    I vote "other", or "none of the above".

    Proud.............. , you and I seem to have a very similar political philosophy.
    One of many things that burns me about our nation is the media "personalities" who lie so.....both radio and TV....and we are barraged with this.
    So many Republicans were stupid enough to sign a document that they would never raise taxes....but it was OK to lower taxes....they do not represent their constituents, but only themselves...

    Agree....but I think we may have a problem, mind you "I think", not I know....
    Sadly, one cannot trust either side.
    We do need reform in the political process....elections should should never be bought and sold..

    I don't TRUST either.

    Republicans ****ed it up badly when they had the control of the purse strings from 2000 to 2006.

    Democrats have ****ed it up even worse since they've had the purse strings from 2006 to 2010.

    And since 2010 the Republicans and Democrats are splitting the effective purse strings and haven't been able to do anything but token actions.

    I can't trust either of the ****ers, but at least one of them is actually significantly and substantially about dealing with the incredibly irresponsable and spiraling out of control spending issues we have rather than kicking the can down the road, so I am more apt to give them a shot. That said, "trust" is hardly the word I'd use for them.

    Which is why I told the GOP hucksters calling me for donations to "beat Obama" that they have to earn my money and I won't be contributing until they show they can be trusted to do what's right for the people they represent and not for themselves.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
