Should we Americans be on-board with all the Republican spending programs like; 1. ethanol mandates 2. paying for missile defense for the EU 3. the 100 year social engineering project in Iraq 4. making Afghanistan a modern democratic state 5. increasing entitlement spending by passing Medicare Prescription 6. Expanding NATO to include Ukraine and the Republic of Georgia Once again, Republicans believe in HUGE government, they just can't be bothered to pay for it. Let's not forget that government expansion was two and a half times bigger under George W. Bush than under 'Bubba' Clinton.

Let's look at the Republican Party during the eight year George W Bush 'Reign of Error.' The Republican Party led a powerful political machine built on a dazzling use of patronage and a belief that government was a weapon to be wielded in the interest of the moneyed class and on behalf of corporate interests. At the end of the day, the Republican Party was very successful at redistributing wealth to its constituents. Analyze this George W Bush statement in Se[tember of 2008. "We need $700 billion to recapitalize the American financial system." What does it really mean?

I asked a Republican this question. "Any clue why 'No Child Left Behind' was passed when George W. Bush(R) was president, Denny Hastert(R) was Speaker of the House and Trent Lott(R) was Senate Majority Leader?" He told me, "Ted Kennedy wrote the bill!" Now let me ask everyone out there; just how many bills did Republicans write, When Obama, Pelosi and Reid held the levers of power in DC?" When they blame a Democrat, again, is this taking responsibility?

New GOP Smartphone App Streamlines Voter Discrimination - New app makes it easier than ever for minorities to be disenfranchised VOTERITE - No more waiting in long lines just to have your vote thrown away! A new app makes it easier than ever for minorities to be disenfranchised. Hooray for the Republican Party!
Republicans say this of the last election, "Do you even think voting (once) is important and that so is the integrity of the election process?" Yes, Republican governors like Scott in Florida and Brewer in AZ don't want some people in 'urban areas' to be allowed to vote even once. Remember those eight hour long lines and uncounted provisional ballots?

We should all admit that Obama outsmarted the entire GOP establishment as Obama had the better 'get out the vote' ground game while the Republican party relied on spending millions and millions on ads that people got tired of being forced to watch.
The Republican TAXCUT-AND-SPEND philosophy of the last 30 years won elections, but destroyed the conservative brand and left our country with massive debt!

Now, many young Republicans worry, they are the ones in the hermetically sealed bubble — except it’s not confined to geography but rather a self-selected media universe in which only their own views are reinforced and an alternate reality is reflected. What Republicans did so successfully, starting with critiquing the media and then creating our own outlets, became a bubble onto itself.

Chaffetz reveals an ongoing theme of Republican action since 2010 and that is not providing the needed resources on key areas then blaming the Administration when things go wrong. This policy has effected too many of our vital needs and I suspect with a Republican House is still in place, we'll see massive cuts to the FDA, CDC, EPA and probably to air safety as well all so that when Americans die, people like Chaffetz can blame the President.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on Wednesday that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010. For the past two years, House Republicans have continued to deprioritize the security forces protecting State Department personnel around the world. In fiscal year 2011, lawmakers shaved $128 million off of the administration's request for embassy security funding. House Republicans drained off even more funds in fiscal year 2012 -- cutting back on the department's request by $331 million.
