The measurements should be against total GDP rather than a simple year to year comparison. It should be government spending as a percentage of the US economy. Under Regan, Clinton, Bush 43, even LBJ and Nixon, the economy was growing briskly during most years. The same is not true for 0bama, where, like Carter, there has been stagflation. So increased spending in a stagnant economy is actual growth in spending, whereas increased spending in a growing economy may simply be keeping pace. 0bama's spending increases have not been financed by an improving economy, but instead have been paid for entirely by increasing the national debt.

The Future of the Tea Party

With the right candidate, the Tea Party wins. With a poor candidate, it loses to the status quo. That's not too hard to understand is it? This is how it's been since 2010. Many Tea Party candidates came up short in both the primaries and general elections. Only the Rand Pauls, Ted Cruzes and Mike Lees broke through. And there are still more like them waiting in the wings.
Rogers attacks the messenger because he has no defense for his own complicity in the full on assault against the most basic rights of American citizens.
The RNC are total idiots. They took money from a close but winnable race and gave it to Christie, whose reelection was never in doubt. The reason is they would rather have a Democrat elected, than a conservative. But here's the problem that these morons didn't take into account - Virginia is a swing state. The road to the White House runs through Virginia. Now, Hillary Clinton's bagman will be the governor of Virginia during the 2016 election. The Democrats will control the political infrastructure of the state, giving them HILLARY a massive advantage in the state. The RNC may very well have sealed the 2016 GOP candidate's loss over this past month in Virginia.
Way to deflect. Just as your Democrat paymasters. They are giving their constituents/dependents the message to be outraged by the very existence of an investigation. The message is to ignore the findings, reject them as illegitimate, view everything as just politics. The same tactics they used during the Clinton investigations. Not surprisingly, the trail leads to Hillary Clinton, yet again. Once again, the Democrat tactic is to attack the victims and blame the "vast right-wing conspiracy."

Trouble Brewing in GOP

Only to someone with an extremely simplistic point of view that says "anyone who doesn't want to force MY point of view on society is a liberal!" Fact is most libertarians are pretty conservative in their personal views. They just aren't boorish enough to force them on others. It goes both ways here. Liberals want to force their "alternative" lifestyles on everyone else. Libertarians oppose that in equal or greater measure, too.
