    Now, that I have answered your questions, would you answer my question that you have avoided twice now ~

    Do you believe in the rule of law? Do you know what it means?
    of course I do and as a free man I have a right to discuss rapes of the law by congress.

    Why do you claim to be a conservative? That is intellectually dishonest

    Thanks, there for a while, I thought you were implying there was something illegal going on.

    It is perfectly honest. I am a conservative by the definition of the root term:

    to keep in a safe or sound state <he conserved his inheritance>; especially : to avoid wasteful or destructive use of <conserve natural resources>

    That's funnny.

    I'm Centrist but I'm FOR a Balanced Budget which USED to be a conservative Idea (and still professes to be).
    So now I'm for the Concorde Coalition (bi-partisan/Google).

    Of course, we could/can NEVER cut spending Enough to have a balanced budget any more because of all the non-discretionary spending within.

    So saying you're 'for' extending the Bush tax cuts means you are 'For' Deficit spending.

    It didn't work for Bush even with a Fake Hyped Housing and Stock Market.
    It didn't work for Bogus Reagan-onomics either
    It Doesn't work.

    The last time we had Balanced Budgets was with somewhat higher Taxes under CLINTON.

    I guess some people see conserving our natural resources for future generations that way.

    In your case that seems to be an excuse to monopolize and concentrate all wealth into the hands of the government.

    where do you get the idea that tax hikes will actually increase tax revenues?
