Somebody, just once, cut some spending!

The real question is whether raising the rate will really bring in the money it’s supposed to? Maybe a quick lesson in the Laffer curve would do some good.

LIB

nothing the Repubs do at this point is going to make them not be responsible for the mess we are in and that the dems are making a lot worse.

Of course it won’t. But the revenue argument is a red herring anyway. It’s all about political power and wielding it.

I’d like to take this opportunity as Exhibit A to the hardcore NeoCons that Pauliansare not 1/10th your enemy as liberals.

We don’t like cr@p coming out of DC either!

As long as Rand doesn’t Blame America like his daddy does I’d seriously consider supporting him for the nomination.

Of course the cruise control is a viable option, if you’re wanting to jump out of the car and make sure whatever is in it goes over the cliff with some gusto.

I think he’s learned to at least not object too loudly to the puppetmasters. All the mindless vitriol I’ve seen on the Internet probably doesn’t even hold a candle to what he’s seen and heard daddy being told over the years.

Unfortunately I don’t know if even he could fix anything by 2016. I really do not think a political solution is forthcoming.

But if you manage to successfully split from the libtard states, he’d make a darn good 1st President!

who else should be blamed? Mexicans? Canadians?

Once again Rand is right. I know the neocons hate it but liberty minded fiscal conservatives are the way of the future. Most of the “cuts” these a$$clowns are talking about are cut to proposed increases in spending.

What? Truth is treason in an empire of lies.
