If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
I say yes because they all know what they are doing and what it is causing and they are not stopping doing it.......See The problem with Washington is that we have a bunch of big EGO's=YAHOOS.....and they want to continue having big EGOs=YAHOOS and a JOB so not only do they do what they want with OUR moneys they do what they do stating it is all for their base/voters when we know it is their own EGOs standing in the way of doing what is right....our debt reminds me of a bad case of needing a bankruptcy and since we cant claim a BR then lets just spend more and ignore the monster in the room...after all us YAHOOS are getting paid.
so I say lets stop paying them till they get their houses in order....maybe then they will find a compromise.....as I say this as if that will ever happen. In reality this is all about them and nothing to do with all of us.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
I think they are intentionally spending as much as they can and simply not worrying about the debt.
But I do not think most of them are deliberately raising the deficit.
If there is one thing a politician loves to do (imo) - it's spend other people's money.
'What kind of sick and twisted toy factory is this?'
'We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, the best of us is washed away.'
"Better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool."
Of couse they are. Government Spending is like congress itself...sure, we do'nt like it overall, but by god we want our own portoin of it.
As sam said, there's no real incentive for people to cut spending because cutting spending means less they can tell their constituents they did for them and bigger chance they lose.
We've become a leeching, greedy, "gimmie gimmie gimmie" society that asks what the Country can do for us, not what we can do for our country.
We are so deluded as a people and a government that we actually have come to a point where significantly increasing spending at a lower rate then we predicted is considered CUTTING spending. FFS
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
