Tax and spend, borrow and spend, it's all the same. What we _need_ are politicians that don't spend, but that would require that a new party come to prominence.

I fear that even that would only be a temporary solution. What is really needed is some way to ensure that the politicians of any political party cannot buy reelection votes with our tax money - pork barrel projects, various give-away and entitlement programs, and the whole idea of government being the be-all, end-all solver of (meddler in?) all problems.
But I do agree with the subject of this thread. Except for one or two flareups, looks like the fires are out. So quiet it's kinda scary!

That was tried in 1994 when the Republicans won the house for the first time since a two year stint during the Eisenhower administration which was the first time they had a majority in the house since the depression. Remember the screams of anguish from the media and the left? How Newt had a "contract ON America?" How the proposed slowdowns in spending growth were drastic CUTS on the rights of people receiving the largesse of the country's taxpayers? Nearly got the newly elected majority kicked out of power the next go-around. Unfortunately, rather than fighting back and educating voters and taxpayers, the Republicans found it easier to back down.

Some of you really need to get your political panties untwisted so you can begin to appreciate the lighter side of life.

Really? One suggestion: since you've lost your sense of humor, which Swingman seems not to have done...ah, piss on it. I remember back when I was a Republican and the only thing funny was something that was sad for someone else.

You sound like you're still a closet Republican. EARNING money? Working?
With the tax cut, you can even keep a bit more ... for now.

Sorry Charlie, I thought it was pretty funny!
I see you are quoting Eisenhower now. Didn't he order the secret overthrow of Iran's government and Mosaddeq? Operation Ajax?
Funny how history repeats itself.
See, I do have a sense or humor!

"Normally" the switch goes the other way as we age, right?
Wasn't it Winston who said "A man under 30 who is not a liberal, has no heart. And a man over thirty who is not a conservative, has no brain."
I guess it likely depends on the candidate each party puts forth.

You might want to check on just what a conservative is in Blighty, and a liberal.

However that particular quotation is of uncertain origin--the version I first heard substituted "communist" for "liberal", I've seen others that substitute "socialist", and apparently there's a version that dates back to the French Revolution or thereabouts that uses "Republican", which I do not believe meant the same thing in France at the time that it does in the US now. Further, the age is generally more in the vicinity of 20 than 30.

Charlie, I just noticed your sig line. The federal government is all about force. There is no organization that uses more force than the federal government. And I'm talking about the use of force on it's own citizens, not military campaigns. While I'm sure Eisenhower didn't mean it that way, that is a fact of life. Every law that gets passed in Washington means that the federal government is forcing people to do something else, and more freedoms are lost. The people that created this country and it's constitution would be absolutely appalled at what the federal government has become. I would imagine that their worst fears have been realized.

Hmmm - food for thought. Never occurred to me that the terms might have a different meaning across the pond! Oh well. There's also: "Don't confuse me with the facts when my mind is already made up!" ;->

Yes, well, IIRC, it was ol' GB Shaw who first said we (the Brits and us) are separated by a common language.
