Many Republicans fancy themselves to be for small government. In fact, they are for HUGE government. How many people here think the government should know a citizens favorite color? How many people here think the government should know a citizens favorite flavor of ice cream? How many people here think the government should know a citizens favorite sexual position? How many people here think the government should know a citizens sexual orientation? Republicans believe a government database should contain such useful information on its citizens.

Yes, there was the Bush tax cut, but what spending did Bush and his Republican cohorts cut? Nada. In fact, the Republicans added another whole layer of socialist health care called Medicare Prescription in 2003, remember? This proves my point, Republicans have a slobbering love affair with BIG government, they just can not be bothered to pay for it.
Now, even the Republican-controlled Congress is for Obamacare. House Leadership Let Obamacare Expansion Pass. http://www.redstate.com/russvought/2011/03/09/house-leadership-let-obamacare-expansion-pass/
Ask a Republican this question. "What do you think about government run health?" They will say that they hate it and wouldn't wish it upon their worst enemy, even me! Ask them if the TriCare system for active military personnel and the Veteran's Administration should be just shut down and replaced with a "voucher system" where they can enjoy the fruits of the private health insurance market. They will instantly exclaim, "why do you hate the U.S military?" I've realized that all the Republicans have a slobbering love affair with government run health care, when it suits their needs. I say, just how godless and immoral their duplicity and mendacity is! How many of my fellow conservatives here agree?
4 in benghazi + one in fast and furious compared to how many dead Americans in Iraq? Does everyone know that Romney had the same foreign policy advisers as George W. Bush?
Folks, we've all heard it said by many of the card-carrying members of the Republican Party here that Ronald Reagan created conditions that led to decades of growth. Now, here's a question to all my Republican friends. Couldn't the eight year George W. Bush 'Reign of Error' have left this country in such a state that economic conditions will be poor for quite some time?
Let me tell a story about George W. Bush's motto of 'Let's go shopping!' as a battle cry to motivate Americans in the war against the Islamo-Fascists here in the 21st century. I asked a Tea Party guy if he thought Bush's 'Let's go Shopping' motto reminded him of the WWII battle cry 'Remember Pearl Harbor!' He said, "Why yes, my wife has forced me to go shopping in large malls many times. We walked and walked and walked and walked. My feet and back ached so bad! One time, if felt like the 'Bataan Death March.' I asked incredulously, "Really?" He said, "Well, yes, until I saw the Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream shop and we went in and ordered an extra large banana split for two."
The 28th Amendment - Corporations are not people. They have none of the Constitutional rights of human beings. Corporations are not allowed to give money to any politician, directly or indirectly. No politician can raise over $100 from any person or entity. all elections must be publicly financed.

Want to continue the failed "trickle down" economic theory? VOTE REPUBLICAN!
Since 1900 the periods with the lowest marginal rates were the years leading up to 1929 and 2008. These were also the periods when economic inequality and speculation were the greatest and they led to disaster. When tax rates are high, since rich people hate to pay taxes, they leave their profits in their companies, pay their workers more, improve their means of production, and perhaps even hire more, but when rates are low, they take them out and ... speculate!
