Question a program's legitimacy not its efficiency. Does the federal fovernment belong in every nook and cranny it has poked its nose into? Tthe Republican elected offical says, yes. Conservatives say, no. Huge disconnect.

No one ever gets Republican or Democratic leadership on the ropes to ask, is this program warranted or allowed under the constitutional restraints? That question would really expose the true nature of both parties. It will also lead to the alarming realization that government never intends to shrink or shy from new ventures. According to what I expect their answers to be nothing lies outside the realm of government involvement. It is only their own benevolence that keeps them at bay.

"Nobody" does? Ron Paul did. Still does.

And for that they call him "crazy" Uncle Ron.

Well, of course.

If they didn't call him names, they wouldn't have any 'argument' at all, would they?

The Washington Post notes the following quote from Rep. Paul Ryan in his CPAC speech: 

“We don’t see the debt as an excuse to cut with abandon, to shirk our obligations,” Ryan said. “We see it as an opportunity to reform government, to make it cleaner and more effective. That’s what conservatives stand for.”
