So America is Almost 23 Trillion in Debt.

Recommended Posts

LOL Trump isn't a Social Conservative. He just tows the line on Abortion so Social Conservatives can say they like him. 

It's really dumfounding how popular he is amongst Evangelicals. His lack of humility and decency should disqualify him from being appreciated by anyone that says they follow Jesus. 

Hypocrisy FTW.

For example, the GOP going after a Distinguished Lt Col testified that the accounts in the Whistleblower complaint are largely accurate and he gets pilloried for the fact he was born in Ukraine.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified that one example of his attempts to change the transcript was to include Trump telling Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky there were tapes of Biden, which The New York Times reported occurred where there's an ellipsis in the transcript that was released. The change was not made. The assertion that some portion of the conversation was replaced by an ellipsis contradicts the White House's statement in September that the ellipses in the transcript did not represent missing words or phrases. It also contradicts the President who has insisted the transcript the White House released was an exact depiction of the call, even though the memo itself describes it as rough.

Vindman also said that he would have edited the transcript to specifically show that Zelensky mentioned Burisma -- the company that hired Hunter Biden -- rather than just "the company," according to sources.

 

He's given his life to serve the US military, but because he speaks the truth, he's labelled a traitor.

The Army officer was a specialist in the White House on Ukraine and Russia. His backstory — he’s a Jewish immigrant who fled the Soviet Union with his family to become a decorated soldier and White House adviser— has the makings of an only-in-America movie.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham and former U.S. Deputy Attorney General John Yoo used Vindman’s heritage to question his loyalty ahead of his testimony.

Donald Trump might be a social conservative, but he doesn't have a clue how to run a budget.

Donald Trump is not any kind of conservative, nor has he ever been.

Social conservatives are dragging the conservatives down and preventing them from winning elections by demanding ideological purity to a social conservative agenda. It was a smart move, it helped drive the left further to left and made them unelectable. Just win baby, all that matters is the SCOTUS, social conservatives have nothing to complain about, Trump gave them the win for decades, despite not being one himself, something no real social conservative would have accomplished because they wouldn't have gotten elected in the first place.

If it wasn't for Trump, the Democrats would have a 6-3 SCOTUS majority, don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

And that is important why? The only reason it matters is because socons are obsessed with abortion. Meanwhile the US is weakened in every concievable way by the confusion and turmoil of having a ranting, sulky, temperamental two year old in the oval office.

If I was president, the first thing I would do is cut all military spending by 40%. We would stop building aircraft carriers and fighter jets. And use half that money to reduce the deficit, and half that money to replace crumbling infrastructure. If any other country invades the USA will teach the 100 million Gun owners how to go to war. 

I think over a 4 year period I would cut defense spending by 75%

I would increase the retirement age to 75, since the boomers screwed up the economy, I would punish them for trying to mortgage our grand kids future.

What you fail to realize is that the US has huge international interests. When you see the US military used abroad it is to support those interests. Without the US military being in western Europe for the last fifty years, that entire continent would now be a Soviet sphere of interest. Without the threat of the US military in Asia China would already have conquered Japan and the rest of eastern Asia. The US could find itself alone facing huge, hostile world empires. The cost of having a powerful US military and putting some of them overseas as a threat to the US's enemies is a paltry price to pay for that. It also keeps trade and resources flowing to US factories by preventing third world countries from becoming client states of their enemies.

Well I would go on prime time every week... I tell Americans exactly what has to happen to protect future generations. I would sign executive orders forcing CNN and all major new outlets to run Slideshow presentations educating Americans about the dangerous of the $23 debt.

The US debt is manageable except that they keep adding to it and never pay it back. That's because the only policy Republicans have other than hot button social issues is tax cuts.

The Republican party is coming to resemble a cult more than a political party. It has no ideological beliefs any more other than whatever the great leader tells them. It's certainly not fiscally conservative, and as for social conservatism... yeah, not with a cursing, lying, whoremongering, adulterous gambler as their leader.

Clue #1:   The Republican Party hasn't been fiscally conservative for a very long time....might want to update your playbook.

I'd advise you to do the same, but you're still stuck in ostrich syndrome.

You're new here rookie....I specifically did not vote for Trump because the large deficits were expected as a matter of policy.

This "ostrich" can vote in U.S. elections...can you  ?

I tow my own line....which isn't Republican.   A majority of Americans are not members of political parties.

Trump was a Democrat before....even ostriches know that.

For reasons you don't understand...being a rookie and all.

That's important because Democrats want to ban free speech and guns. It's not about abortion, it's about constraining the Democrats dumbest legislation even if they are in charge, for decades. No far left ideology in legislative form being rammed down the throats of Americans, it will be struck down by the SCOTUS if they even try.

If you don't get why that's important, maybe it's because you are speech banning gun grabber, or you somehow think federal abortion rights are a more important issue, than stopping the far left from trying to ruin America.

The sequester: A tea party victory

Since the day they were swept to power more than two years ago, the tea party’s legions in Washington have made dramatic federal spending cuts the centerpiece of an economic message that has dominated the national debate.
