Again, "When would big government suit a Republican's needs?" You and many here have asked. Let me answer that question. When the Republican Party removed 'the evil Saddam Hussein who killed hundreds of thousands of his fellow Iraqis' and believe that it's the American people's responsibility, rather than the Iraqi people's responsibility to free themselves. When the Republican Party promoted the 'ownership society' that helped bring on the housing bubble and all of its subsequent bailouts. When the Republicans party creates new programs like their precious 'Faith Based Initiatives.'
"When would big government suit a Republican's needs?" many here have asked. Let me answer that question. When the Republican Party added another layer of entitlement spending. (Medicare Prescription) When the Republican Party ramped up pork barrel spending in a time of war. When the Republican Party expanded farm subsidies and ethanol mandates. When the Republican Party doubled the size of the Department of Education. When the Republican Party wants to pay more for the defense of Europe than the Europeans do themselves.
A card-carrying Republican says, "What if I prefer the Founders ideal of self reliance & believe everyone should be self reliant?" Hmmmmm....is this Republican talking about the Bush bank bailouts, the insurance company bailouts, the ethanol mandates, the Wall Street bailouts, the auto bailout, the airline bailout, the Big Pharma handout, agricultural subsidies, pork barrel spending and the Republican party's 'Faith-Based Initiatives,' to name just a few of the Republican wealth redistribution schemes. Are these card-carrying Republicans talking about self-reliance for the poor but ENDLESS HANDOUTS for corporations with political connections and contributions to the Republican party?

I asked a Republican this question. "Any clue why 'Medicare Prescription' was passed when George W. Bush(R) was president, Denny Hastert(R) was Speaker of the House and Bill Frist(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?
I asked a Republican this question. "Any clue why 'No Child Left Behind' was passed when George W.
