The GOP has devolved into the PIG: the Party of Increasing Government
As Fed Expands Credit, Consumers Drown in Debt
Governor's tough task: finding the waste to cut. Budget can be shrunk -- but by $10 billion? - That should be no problem for anyone with an objective understanding of the true purpose of government in a capitalist society.
Dem Presidential Candidates Hammered for Missing Medicare Vote - One of the many things wrong with our current political system is the fact that campaigning for high office is itself a full time job lasting for months and years on end. This makes the only ones able to afford it those who are either independently wealthy or those who have jobs that don't require them to actually do anything; which is why our choices are almost exclusively professional politicians who are paid and supplied with massive perks whether or not they do any of the things they were elected to do. Bush couldn't have afforded his 2000 campaign if he hadn't been governor of Texas at the time. Ditto for Clinton in 1992. Those of us in the private sector, who have to actually do things in order to be paid, can't afford to spend a year or more out on the campaign trail.
