‘Unthinkable, Draconian’ Spending Cuts

Serious budget cuts, like term limits, will never be supported by politicians, because they are not, presently, in any politician's self-interest. This can be changed overnight by the voters, merely by refusing to vote for any candidate who does not support these actions. If it means losing an election, candidates will not put self-interest above the voters interests. But with a 90 % re-election rate, why should politicians pay any attention to voters? We have exactly the gov't we permit and endorse. Its a pity the wise and foresighted must pay part of the price incurred by the fools, but 'twas ever thus.

Good morning Pistol!

You're exactly right. And the only "serious" cuts that will absolutely work are when we cut these crooked, corrupt politicians from government once and for all!

And small consolation the low information segment will suffer most.

It’s my job to advocate for spending cuts. It’s a job I’ve been doing in one form or another for over a decade. If I’ve ever experienced a victory, it must have been a pretty small one, because I can’t recall any.

So why do I persist?

For one, I’m a naturally optimistic person. And fueling that optimism is the press. I’m constantly reading about the possibility of spending cuts, and those articles usually say that the cuts would be major … or massive … or severe...
