you support the democratic/liberal party because they are (supposedly) fighting for the people and fight for their rights such as in social security, medicare/aid, funding welfare.. etc etc as in social programs.. you see republicans trying to cut them while giving cheap money/bail outs to banks, subsidies for oil companies, tax breaks for special interests and tax cuts for wealthy.....

all in the mean while, the US is going deeper in debt.

this is kind of the place where the USA is at. All of sudden, DEBT has become our major issue. (I kind of wonder where this sudden worry of DEBT all of came from because USA was in debt a long long while ago and i also wonder which mastermind brought this debt topic to the mainstream US population as it came out of nowhere) (well i think perhaps anti obama healthcare?)

all at the same time, you secretly know that spending all that money in welfare and social programs will bankrupt this country....

me thinks u r leaving out a fact or 2.

When the military budget is 42% of GDP,
then we do not have a budget problem,
we have a military industrial complex problem.

We had a balanced budget ... a surplus .. and then Bush and the NeoCons invaded America. Tax cutd for corporations and the rich coupled with endless wars based on lies ... goddamned right I'm a liberal. Doesn't make me a Dem by a long shot as they are just the other side of the same coin, but Conservatism isn't really conservatism ... it is a radical extremism that is attempting to take over the U.S. via coup.

Sell the snake oil to TeaBaggers. They are the only ones buying.

me knows politicians will promise everything unreasonable to the general public to get elected. this is the nature of the democratic system.

but in the meanwhile, they country is falling apart but no one will notice until poop hits the fan.
it seems such a short sighted system in someways. like the politicians are a cheer leaders. elections are popularity contest.

you people are so full of crap its not even funny

the so called clinton surplus was money stolen from social security

we have a spending problem.

we have a entitilement problem

we have a stupidity problem

we have half the country paying for the other half

we have over 47 million americans on welfare

those same 47 are also on medicaid

then we have the millions on medicare

the problem in this country is people are getting paid by taxes instead of paying them

then we have multi trillion in government subsidies.

we have a big government problem and now all the whiners that government is too big to fail

ATS never fails to surprise me, especially with ignorant statements from the OP.

If you think that welfare/social programs will bankrupt this country, then prepare to have your mind blown based on the amount we spend on defense each year!

not true the so called deficit is is a lie it exists only on the set of books that we the people are allowed to see
meanwhile there is another set of books CAFR which reveals income based on investments these paragons of corruption and GREED made using the peoples taxes.



www.cafr1.com...

www.project.nsearch.com...
CAFRs: The Biggest Secret $60 trillion invested by US government www.abovetopsecret.com...
The One Thing they will not discuss, CAFR www.abovetopsecret.com...

NYC (just the city)is siting on 2.2 trillion Dollars of investment capital (liquid assets, stocks bonds etc)
the US-gov is sitting on 64 trillion Dollars of investment capital (liquid assets, stocks bonds etc)

whats the debt 14 trillion? that leaves more than 50 trillion left over divide that by the current population....

find the CAFR for your state follow the methodology provided by the links or get an accountant to do it for you.
word of warning when confronted with this , the SOP is the big ignore [and be assured you will be escorted off the premises by security] and some states are now hiding their CAFR offline so...

the point is all this deficit crap is just another puppet show for the masses like the war on terror,
this "we've got no money to pay for that" is like your mom saying "i've got no money for that piece of candy you want"

but at least mom means well, even when she's being cheap
