Well, it should be clear to all by now, that neither party is serious about cutting spending. We the people have been warning the politicians for decades that their big spending would lead us to bankruptcy. Well, guess what. We're nearly there. Obama has spent and committed more money than all of the presidents before him and now we're broke and will have problems borrowing more. Our credit rating will be hit, interest rates will rise, cost of government will soar even higher.

No matter what they say, we're in a deep recession. Millions of people unemployed. Businesses cutting back or shutting their doors. Too risky to invest or make long term plans. Too risky to expand or hire new employees. People everywhere are having to do with less, much less.

And our politicians are wringing their hands having no idea what to do about it. They're tossing one bill after another out there, but none of them do diddly squat about addressing the problem.

IT's THE SPENDING, STUPID!! And the solution is to CUT THE SPENDING, STUPID!!

CUT IT!! CUT IT DEEP!! CUT IT NOW!!

We the people have had to cut our spending, now it's time for the big spending government to cut theirs!!

It's time to shutter entire departments! It's time to cut the payroll! Cut the pensions! Cut the bennies! Strip the unconstitutional and unnecessary departments and programs!! Cut the bloated government! Bring our troops home! Abolish the EPA!! Abolish the TSA!! Abolish and shutter as many ABC departments as we possibly can!! REPEAL OBAMACARE!! ObamaCare is totally unnecessary, unwanted and unconstitutional. Pure socialist pork! REPEAL IT!! REPEAL IT NOW!!

When the government does these things, then we'll know they are serious!

Until then, a pox on the whole lot!

Call your congressional reps today and demand that they do not raise the debt ceiling under any circumstances whatsoever!! We're deep enough in debt already!! CUT THE SPENDING, DAMMIT!!

And if they refuse, vote the corrupt, big spending, business as usual bastards OUT!!

Rebellion is brewing!!

Go, TEA party!!

Oh, yeah, and please continue supporting FR if you can. We need FR in this fight, NOW more than ever!!

I’ve often wondered what would happen if we massed a million souls on capitol hill, and then surrounded and shut down the Capitol, and the hut too if we had enough folks. How would they remove us?

I have never heard a coherent explanation from either a Democrat or a Republican why spending can’t be cut. Republicans pussy foot around the issue. And of course the Lib media won’t make the case. I’d like to see a reporter say:

“Spending has tripled since Reagan; way out pacing inflation. Why can’t it be cut across the board this year by say, 20%?”

Remember when? When we had a real, down to earth, warmhearted and patriotic President who loved this country and its people?

A President who was comfortable with royalty, but didn't think that he was royalty?

I’m back, or at least my Internet is working again. Sorry I was gone, but I couldn’t get the router to stay connected. Trying to get hold of a friend, I had to CALL him on the phone, for Heaven’s sake!

Going to catch up on the thread.

But it hasn’t been quickly. Socialists have been implementing their plan since FDR. Reagan stopped them for awhile on a few fronts. But even then the plan was being implemented. It just took us awhile to catch on.

You know the country hasn’t gone into the crapper,
but the problem is that everyone thinks it has because
they’ve been told that that is where it belongs.
Obama and his ilk aren’t satisfied with destroying
America and they don’t even have to do that, what
they are doing is destroying the ideal of America,
making it worth less than nothing and too many people
are falling for it.

Obama is the same as Stalin, Gramsci or Alinsky in the WH. There are marxists in key positions in media, government and education. They are poised to destroy the US and some voters are still asleep.

There is a program on my computer that shows how fast the modem is working and how well the router is performing, and the dang things just weren’t cooperating. It’s back to 3360kbps now. Here’s hoping it stays that way.
