All one must do to be thought of as fiscally conservative is to spout some anti-welfare rhetoric. Just express some hostility to welfare mothers, throw in some racial undertones and you'll be an anti-tax crusader, even if spending goes through the roof at your direction.
"We may have destroyed this country, but we got rich doing it!" --The GOP
There is a special place in hell for those who care only about themselves.
No. Reagan was a typical borrow and spend Republican. He oversaw the final death of the American dream where the real wages of ordinary Americans started to stagnate even though there was an increase in productivity.
One should not forget the straight criminality of the Reagan administration either. It is beyond my comprehension how you can be labelled a national hero if you sell arms to a barbaric theocracy in order to fund Nicaraguan terrorist groups and drug barons.
The poor complain; they always do
But thatís just idle chatter
Our system brings reward to all
At least all those who matter.
Being quite liberal says it all about you. I fully understand why you need people like Obama in the WH and Pelosi and Reid in charge of Congress. Read the Cato Institute analysis of the Reagan years and truly educate yourself. You definitely need to go through Detox from that liberal education you received.
