    democrats trout out Keynes for the down times, and spend like drunken sailors when the money flows in
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

People like you never understand that this is a two sided equation. People like you also never understand that this is not a Democrat only problem. The current deficit problem started under Reagan.

    Republicans don't want to reduce the deficit or debt any more than Dems do. If you don't understand this, then just look at the current discussions about tax cuts.
    I kind of agree with you here, but I prefer the R's spending over the D's anyways. The R's tend to go towards military spending while the D's go towards social spending.

    I always like Ronnie's comment on spending like drunken sailors...

    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt
