    Judging by the presidencies from Reagan to date, as a country we can tax and spend and get along reasonably well, or stop taxing, keep spending, go to war and double the national debt in 8 years. Boy, this is a tough one. What are the recommendations from Howie Carr and Mount Rush Mo? Cut taxes, kill the various national health services, lay in ammunition for the Bushmaster and breed children for endless war? All r-r-r-right. Thanks for the deep analysis, guys. And now back to your regularly scheduled commercials…

    “Tax and spend Democrats or spend and spend Republicans…”

    Either way, at some point, we will cross a threshold that we will wish we hadn’t.

    There is an anthropological (though simplistic) example of taxation in which the tribal chief needed an assistant chief. The tribe’s hunters had no problem getting food to feed these two amilies. The tribe’s shaman thought he and his family should also be provided for and got a couple of his apprentices in on that program. The tribe’s hunters could no longer adequately provide for their own families, but the head gazoots kept getting what they thought they were entitled to. The hunters eventually rebelled.

    You can write any scenario you want for a conclusion of what the hunters may have done.
    or how the “government” used their largess. It doesn’t matter. It’s only a tale of how the tribe collapsed under excessive “taxation”.

    Your point was lost when you switched from Democrats taxing to Republicans taxing and changed my scenario to fit your political prejudices. Addressing any fallacies in.the scenario as presented would have been more appropriate..

    I think this is funny. Not completely fair, but still funny. A clever way to make his point.

    Yes, but the Republican section has the same “SPEND” book, but the “TAX” book is replaced with a “BORROW” book.

    How about both parties getting smacked down by the American people making them tax a little less and spend a whole lot less and selling some of the over 3 million acres of federally owned land. That would be a nice start.

    @ScottPM—the programs and policies initiated by both Reagan and Bush the Lesser doubled the National Debt during their terms in office. And, in a gift that keeps on giving (pain), Bush the Lesser left us in the EARLY states of the worst downturn since the 1930’s. No lie. Call me a Lib if you want; truth is I’m an Anti-Republican. And becoming more so.

    That book is called “Stealing” – you already have it checked out.
