What kind of government
would you rather have ?

Simple poll:
The democrats : the party of "Tax and Spend"
The republicans : the party of "borrow and blow"

VERY simply put this means :

The past Republican Presidents have consistently borrowed huge sums of money and blown it on things that have provided no return to the American People : huge military build ups and wars do not add to the economy, they diminish it.
Borrowing money and uses it to have a big party and leave the debt to the next one to come = "Borrow and Blow"

The "in between" democratic presidents inherited this debt.
President Clinton actually halted the upward movement of borrowing and turned it around during his two terms as President. And we all remember with fondness the level of prosperity that we reached under Clinton.
Balancing your income with your spendings is "Tax and Spend"

I have rules in my polls:
#1 you insult anyone ot anything? you are out
#2 off-topic smokescreens ? you are out

    There is nothing "federal" with the federeal reserve it is just another way of the corporate trade bankers to get controll pover the money, and it works, they already own the USA
  • Gregaj7 DutchHe... 2012/05/02 16:40:59
    That all depends on definition of "ownership".

    A government that actually works in the best interest of all citizens. I think it's probably called a fairy tale government.

  • Tennessean 2012/02/20 19:31:41
    I have another Idea..
    I would like the type of government as established by our Constitution, one with limited powers, where the every day governing powers were left to the individual states.
  • the spo... Tennessean 2012/02/20 21:13:18
    the spoiler
    States Rights for sure, some states might even try slavery again
  • aneed2know Tennessean 2012/02/21 07:37:49
    yeah why not that, it worked so well in the past. Then we can all ignore our history like Tenn. wants to do. No problems there right?
  • Tennessean aneed2know 2012/02/21 16:11:57
    I do not want to ignor our history, but to embrace it to the point that everyone would realize that the powers granted the federal government, by our constitution, are few and defined, while the powers left to the states are numerous and indefinite.

    "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce." Madison, considered the father of the Constitution

    Also let us not forget what liberty really is.

    "Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."
    Thomas Jefferson

    yadda, yadda, yadda, you are talking about almost 250 years ago, what ever.
  • Tennessean aneed2know 2012/03/18 23:52:11
    Just in case you did not know it, anytime the majority of people believe our constitution needs changing it can be changed by the amendment process, as it has 27 times in the past.
  • aneed2know Tennessean 2012/03/20 05:45:07
    like i said, ignore the history like Tenn., wants to do
  • Tennessean aneed2know 2012/03/25 22:08:34
    If you trully believe that the amendment process is ignoring history, good luck.
  • aneed2know Tennessean 2012/03/26 04:49:20
    like i said, ignore history at your own perile, but then again what do you care, you are 67 years old soon you will be dead and it will be a great day in this country.
  • Tennessean aneed2know 2012/04/01 02:24:54
    I may out live you sucker, we never know when, or where, the end may come.
  • aneed2know Tennessean 2012/04/03 05:13:11
    i doubt that.
  • cindy 2012/02/20 18:38:39
