We don't fall for those tricks either. You may call yourself a fiscal conservative, but you argue like a tax and squander liberal. By far, in a huge unending way, the greatest driver of Government deficit spending and accrued debt is entitlement spending. Spending never invisioned by the constitution, spending that would have been anthema to one of the greatest ever Democratic Presidents, Grover Cleveland.
If you want to point out GOP irresponsibilty start with Nixon's EPA and Earned Income Credit, talk about Reagan getting snookered by Tip O'Neal, and talk about George W. Bush and his groteseque Medicaid Part D. War spending does end and in the greater scheme of things trivial compared to systemic entitlement spending.
