Yes. Federal Spending is without a doubt the most serious issue facing our country. Romney's budget proposal: Balance the budget in 40 years. Ron Paul's budget proposal: Balance the budget in 3 years. Any conservative worth his marbles should see the wold in sheeps clothing if they only looked at the facts. Romney will not get us out of this crumbling economy. He will only slow it down a bit. DRASTIC cuts to the budget and sound money (no more printing from the Federal Reserve) are NEEDED for a real recovery. Go ahead, call me all the names in the book. Make fun of me. I don't care. Facts don't lie.
