    Who's More Likely Telling The Truth?

    I'm going to go with A on this one.

    But that does bring up another question. Why would anyone consider the Republican Party to have any credibility when they haven't done what they said they'd do for the past 30 years?
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    Democrats promising to spend more money is absolutely their intention without question. Republicans like to talk about spending cuts but I only believe they are half serious.

    Considering that both the Democrats and Republicans are fundamentally liberals, just wearing different silly hats, I'd say that the Dems are more likely telling the truth. Both should be disgusted with themselves.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Democrats typically do not try to hide the fact that they want to spend on new programs.

    I haven't seen much in the way of cuts from either side so I have to go with A.

    Neither.

    Some may consider the Republicans simply because they have actually only had 6 total years in the last 100 that they could actually do anything without Dem suppression. Even then, they didn't have a super-majority to overcome Filibusters. Also, while the old-style Reps may have been lazy and non-productive, go ahead, give the TEA Party types the opportunity and you will see change for sure.

    Considering no government, Democrat or Republican, since World War II has been able to reduce spending I'm going with increased spending.

    I don't see how either party can be called liberal.

    It's a simple formula and easy to understand. Just like to a surgeon every malady requires surgery because it's what they do.

    To Congress every Bill needs spending money to be involved to be a form of governing. Cutting spending gives them less clout, power and control, which is not why they ran for office.

    Liberal in the American sense, at least. How the rest of the world defines the term is largely irrelevant since we're talking about American political parties.
