    The Republican Party is the best example of this; Ryan presents a budget that will reach balance in 30 years, but will leave the existing debt of 15 trillion in place and growing larger for the same period of time. Hell just 12 years ago Clinton left the with the Treasury experiencing a surplus of 230 billion and in a position to pay down the debt. The Republicans led by Cheney said "that surplus is the American peoples money" and they embarked on 12 years of financial disaster. A few good Republicans like Saxby Chmbliss are trying to get out from under the lies and deceit of Grover Norquist and others to return us to the sanity of Bill Clinton. It certainly is not easy fighting against the Repulican theory which is basically based on personal enrichment by destrying the financial integrity of our national government. These theorists (really just self centered money grubbers) are the same guys who deny global warming because it does not fit into the personal short term enrichment goals.

    So Waffle, let's vote for Gary Johnson and give the Libertarian party a chance instead of trying to select the lessor of the two evils.

    sort of another spin on - those that can't, teach; or, if youre not qualified for the real world, the government is hiring. I don't know though, Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin had a theory of how to destroy the economy, and in practice, he has done very well. Waffler, I know you are old enough to remember the dot com bubble that Clinton had the good timing to be able to ride, making him look good. A major recession was hitting hard as he was turning over the reigns to King George the torturer (who only started what Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin has accelerated and enhanced).

    Which is why social planning usually doesn't work. The natural order of things does not require central planning. Most social engineering succeeds in bilking the citizenry for empty promises.
