    All the sequester does is cut one-fortieth of projected non-entitlement spending over the next decade. That comes on the heels of a "bipartisan explosion in federal spending" over the last few decades.

    I personally say that its time to rid our nation of about 535 members of Congress. If these folks in office don't like doing the job, then there's probably a few out of 300 million plus people would and is ready and willing.

    You vote for people that you believe will do a good job.

    Even if they only are minor candidates.

    If no candidates meet that criteria - you don't vote.

    The higher the number of undecided voters - the more nervous the major parties get.

    If less and less people vote for a party because they demand excellence from their candidates. Then the party leaders will start insisting the candidates be superior or they won't get nominated.


    Anyone that votes for a candidate they know is not up to the job, and not for a candidate in a minor party that they feel is better for America just because they want their vote to 'mean something', is a pathetic voter (imo).

    You should ALWAYS vote for the best person for the job...the party they represent should be a minor factor - especially in a presidential election.


    Have a nice day.

    I realize (judging by your name/posts) you are ridiculously partisan and this concept is WAAAY over your head...but this explanation is for those people who actually have an open mind on the subject.


    Have a nice day.
    I voted for nader once and an ass hole was elected because of ass hole like me who voted for nader, who turned out to be a real asshole.

    I don't even want to talk about Ross Perot. Don't get me started.

    Any sort of cut there is going to be pain for someone. Are we just supposed to not cut anything instead?

    I applaud you for thinking outside the box.

    Though back then it was more difficult since the internet was either not around or only in it's infancy (i.e. access to unbiased information was much harder to comeby then it is today).


    To me, voting is something that should be taken very seriously.

    But today, partisan politics is destroying America as too many people refuse to vote for anyone who is not either a Dem or a Rep.

    And since the party's know this - they play it safe and only nominate candidates that tow the party line, act likeable and who think outside the box as little as possible.

    It is their job to do certain things, if they fail to do them, not only should we not pay them, we should fine them out of their personal wallet for their failure.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Whose fault is sequestration?

    who fault is is?

    in the House.. 174 Republicans and 95 Democrats

    in the Senate 28 Republicans ,45 Democrats, and 1 independent.

    in the White House.. 1 Democrat.



    as for who is to blame for the doom and gloom hype.... that would primarily be the White House.


    i'm not opposed to capping spending growth ( "spending cuts" is not really an accurate term)... and I don't give rats ass which party get's "blamed".
