You're spitting in the wind. Democrats think spending is the baseline, and taxes should be as high as necessary to collect as much as is spent. Republicans think taxes are the baseline, and the government should not spend any more than what was taxed. Yes, the Democrat view is irrational, but it is what it is. Arguing facts with them is to invite injury. Better just to point out these opposite viewpoints, and then SEVERELY mock their insanity.
