How long have we been a 50/50 nation? Very few elections are now won 65/35. There is no will of a nation...there is only individual will and individual choice. We can be influenced and as you have proven be taught to accept that our tax dollars help the poor. Whiles those who make the choices pay 28 dollars a gallon for aircraft carrier fuel. My point should have been more about the amount of spending not as much as what we are spending it on.
