What a Republican puff piece. "We" this and "we" that... "We" are not the government, Mr. Davis. We NEED military cuts. We NEED entitlement cuts. Massive cuts, in both areas. We, the people of the United States, need those cuts. We need our armed forces here at home, arrayed in defensive, border securing, aggression deterring strategy, not an empire expanding, police the world, nation building, drone-bomb dropping offensive boondoggle. We need our productive sector off welfare, working, producing, contributing, consuming, making the economy go, instead of sponging off an ever-decreasing workforce, Taxed Enough Already, and just about mad enough to revolt.

This guy wants to be Chavez or Castro... all while telling us he is Lincoln or Kennedy.

We may need a new 'precedent', but we also need a new president, one who is not a utopian dreamer, but a practical realist. We need a president who believes in American exceptionalism, the Constitution as written and amended, free enterprise, capitalism and personal responsibility. We need a leader who will develop our energy independence, revise and simplify the federal tax code, eliminate needless regulations that stifle businesses and reduce the size and scope of government. We need a president who will not lie every time he opens his mouth.

It is often true that if enough people in government say something is bad, there is a strong chance of redeeming qualities.

So my journey began. The only element of the sequester that bothered me in the least was military cuts. But my friends at the Institute for Policy Innovation properly observe that defense spending will not fall below 2007 levels, which were 75% above pre-9/11Pentagon budgets.

High enough for me? Of course not. I actually want...
