One question I think we all would like the answer to is this. Why the hell don’t the politicians understand they need to CUT SPENDING AND CUT TAXES. They all say we will have to cut police and fire, well BS. Cut the waste quit giving us the standard knee jerk Police and Fire BLAH. Please ask that question when you get a chance.
The answer is whether or not the politician views the government as a tool to provide services, or whether the government is to be financially fit, and follow genrally accepted accounting principles. Is it about service or money? Is it about using to government to force people to behave a certain way? Or is it about protecting citizens from those who would use to government to behave a certain way?
It isn’t really about GOP vs. Democrats anymore… It’s about Authortarians vs. Libertarians.
