Its time for a firm and simple bottom line, I won't be drawn in emotionally on other issues to support these business as usual RINO's we have elected.

BALANCED BUDGET NOW.

can't be done. from wikipedia: GDP = private consumption + gross investment + government spending + (exports − imports), A balanced budget would reduce govt. spending by 6% of GDP. That is an instant mother of a recession bordering on a depression.

Certain things could be killed in an instant and the country would do better.

Other things would have to be phased out over 10-15 years.

We’re more likely to just fall into the black hole.

Third party is the only way. Cut spending, unwind the Fed, cut regulation, and defer all other issues (guns, marriage, abortion) to the states - and totally shun the media into irrelevancy.

Multiple election cycles would be needed to overcome the statists.

But for how many more years do we listen to conservative leaders say “change the party from within” as the GOP continues to fund moderates and add to the debt and regulatory burdens?

How about we start by arresting all of the ruling class and start trying them for treason?

Hey, I’m all for those things you mentioned but I feel a lot like Don Quixote here. Tilting at windmills (in some cases literally! see:wind power).
