When you can get elected by having the federal government give out free cell phones with your name attached, and expand food stamp recipients by 65%, it doesn’t matter what happens in the real world. The candidate with the best handouts in the last 6 months gets elected. If this were high school (aiming high here) handing out treats to everyone on election day would get you elected. Welcome to Obama’s Amerikka.

hopefully, thru due diligence, we can win at local and state levels...its our ONLY hope....

What you described is exactly what happened in Greece. SO long as there are lenders to lend you money, handouts get expanded. But the bubble can only grow so big. It explodes every time.

The pain and suffering in Greece right now is what we have to look forward to unless things change.
