LOONY LIBERALISM... AND DEFICITS... FOR AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE
Since 1965 when the National Debt was near zero it has grown to today's vast number now fast approaching 17 trillion dollars. Such is not due to wars since then or the cost associated with the Reagan military buildup as many assert but instead is due to entitlement spending that is recipient-expectant along with being... utterly out of control.
It started with Johnson's cleverly named Great Society Programs. These were neither 'great' nor of societal benefit. Instead and since their implementation they are the root cause of all that has emerged due to their existence. This includes aberrant behaviors that so damage recipients that most remain dysfunctional.. for life.
