Gentle Readers, The Republicans should pass a balanced budget. Immediately. Then send it to the Senate and Pres. Obama. It would be rejected, but it would clarify the issues. If we spent the same amount the Federal Government spent in 2007, we would have a balanced budget this year. Much of the government is self-financing. The Post Office, as one example. If FedEX and UPS can operate profitably, why not the Post Office? Passport processing, National Parks, etc., all generate their own revenues. They could all be made independent, and self financing.

Been there, did that. Didn't work. You can't "clarify the issues" to a public who perponderantly listen to the biased MSM.

Sure, we should do it again, but we'll get the same result.

If I keep reading the advice of those who are saying we should give Barack Obama what he wants, let him take the American economy into the quicksand and make him own it, I am going to be tempted to agree.

So I’m going to stop reading such things.

With respect to those who offer that strategy, it is flawed on multiple levels. It may not work, it would confuse people about what conservatism is and what it does, and it would slam the brakes on our most valuable passion right now-- the desire to save what we can...
