It bugs me in this time of war, that tax cuts are always talked about. We have dumped the entire cost of the Iraq War onto the national credit card. No sacrifice on the home front was ever asked for, other than to go 'shopping.' Do you think Winston Churchill talked about tax cuts while the Germans were bombing London? How many Tea Parties were there in America from December, 1941 through September, 1945?

George Bush went to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. He stated that "We will rebuild New Orleans no matter how long it takes and no matter how much it costs." When I heard that, I immediately thought it was a Socialist statement. Who here, agrees? Where does the executive branch get the authority to redistribute my wealth to the Gulf Coast to help clean up after a hurricane. As we all good conservatives know, that if a power is not explicitly defined as a federal power then it's left to the states. To think otherwise is simply Unconstitutional and Socialist Thought.
Many Republicans here talk about the experience of their party with implementing small government. Are they talking about the AIG bailout, the airline bailout, the auto bailout, the endless pork spread 2001-2010, their Faith-Based Initiatives, the ethanol mandates, the farm subsidies, the attempted mandated school prayer sessions, the social engineering in Iraq and the nation building in Afghanistan? To say Republicans are for small government.....it tis a joke my friends.
Remember when the Republican controlled Congress promised to cut $100 billion from the budget after the election of 2010? What Was The [Admin:Expletive Deleted] Point? First they promised to cut $100 billion, then said what they really meant was that they'd hold out indefinitely for $60 billion, then they totally caved in to the Democrats, compromising on $38 billion, and in the end all we got was a lousy $352 million in cuts. What a gyp, shame on the spineless Republicans.

Tea Party at fault? Hmmmm.....All talk, all blather, all bloviation...time went by and nothing was accomplished, other than the debt limit was increased while the Tea Party succeeded in making the debt limit the object of everyone's attention in the WORLD. Mission NOT accomplished. Capiche?
