We are the most in debted country on earth. No mention of that fact. Why are we broke? Which party is responsible? Easy answer there. The GOP. War is hell and very expensive. So is stupidity that got us into this fiscal mess. Time for a little honesty when discussing debt, wealth and all the reasons as to why we are broke.

Really, tbrennan? It's all the GOP's fault? Let's see, Afghanistan and Iraq, combined over 7.5 years, about $800 billion dollars added to the national debt, Oblahblah, in 4 years, $6.5 trillion dollars added to the national debt. And this little fiscal cliff nonsense, that he engineered, will add another $3.6 trillion dollars (conservatively) over the next 4 years. Who's responsible for all of this? Come on, I think that there is a bit of honest self reflection in you. Or am I just whistling Dixie?

So the demoncraps are not the ones that spend almost 2 trillion or more per year, t demons that are in DC are not the ones that have raised the debit limit every year since bamba boy has been in office. Get a grip. Under bush average cost of gas was only around $1.89, under the demon carp rule the average cost is up around $3.75 or more per gallon. Under Bush the Veterans has good health care now under bamba boy the Vets have had a big drop in health care. Under bush the national debt rose about 700 billion or less per year Under bamba boy the debt is going up at a rate of around 20 million per hour or more. Don't blame the GOP for everything the DNC have not passed a budget for the last 4 years not even a whisper of a budget.

Without a budget no one can say it has been broken. What a joke.

Bush NEVER had a deficit nearly as high as 700 billion! They averaged under 300 billion.

What do you hope to gain by fooling yourself, what’s the end state? Liberal Republicans like Bush have spent recklessly, if to a lesser extent, like Obama. You liberals are undefeated, you get everything you want and yet the country is in a steady state of decline. Our liberal run cities are war zones, our manufacturing base is decimated, our families are in pieces, the government continues to expand without restraint, it’s your liberal world, you need to start owning it.

So the Democrats had nothing to do with getting us into this fiscal mess? GMAB.

The Age of Aquarius- long a goal for liberals- began in earnest on January 1st, 2013 when more of the planned tax increases on the wealthy created by Obamacare were implemented, along with the fiscal cliff remedy.

Here’s how it works:

Finally, the low-down, dirty rich, who are responsible for all the world’s ills, including the short stature, pint-sized intellect and light caliber (pun intended) of Bob Costas, will start paying their fair share.
