    …and you’ll lose what was once your base.

    Of course the media(which is about 90% liberal) wants everybody to be government-dependent, loony left voters.

    Another part of the rebranding process — unless, of course, that spells ‘chance’.

    Okay. What sort of clear-eyed admission will any Neo-Con Master of War have to make if he or she ever wants to be RE-considered as a political thinker? How ‘bout that Honest Men — as opposed to corporate raiders — would have pulled out of The Iraq War when it was clear there were NO weapons of mass destruction. WMD’s were what the military went in for; WMD’s provided the motive for war our voters supported.
    -
    When honest men are WRONG, they admit it get themselves RIGHT. Bush and the Cons SHOULD have turned around the tanks six weeks in; they should have called off the raids, apologized for a gross error and pulled OUT. They’d still have serviceable reputations now.
    -
    Saddam and the bloodiest of his aiders and abetters could have been pulled along, handed over to the international courts and faced war crimes trials. They’d have been convicted. Too bad the Corporate Raiders had THEIR way. The Raiders took a ton of money — ten times twenty tons of money — skimmed away their ‘share’ and charged everything on the American National Credit Card. And Dick Cheney says he’d do it all again, not CHANGE a think, Lisa. I personally cannot wait to vote against him and his Rush Glen Gold Fox Standard News ‘people’ again.

    The Republicans aren’t trying to figure out why they’re losing elections on a national level, they’re just trying to rephrase everything so it doesn’t sound as dumb as it did in ’12.

    Unfortunately, much like a tattoo, the change is only skin-deep. The Republicans will never again get my vote until they drop the idiots, the crazies and the irrational haters and start supporting sane candidates again.

    @TheTrustedMechanic

    While I agree with your assessment of what people want, your vision is flawed. You have divided regular people along the lines of our idiot politicians and have fallen into a trap.

    First, how do you achieve the American Dream and what exactly does that entail? Yes it includes hard work. Who will give you get this job at which you will work hard? A democrat? A republican? NO it will be a fellow citizen politics be damned. Will that person be wealthy? Probably, and yes that person is living the dream. He owns a business, he employees others, he makes a product or provides a service to others, has a home that maybe he owns, owns transportation has a family yep living the dream. Can you do all that on a government safety net program?

    No, you should be railing against the banks and the fed right now. The fed is pushing money into the economy supposedly to supply funds for job creation. Right. The money is being used to boost the stock market and to further enrich the “investor” class. Not jobs. Money for nothing and your chicks….

    OH you can vilify the rest of us who think that perhaps a budget and spending less than you make is a good idea, but politics and political spending programs do not produce long term high paying jobs (well unless you are a politician). If they did then we would be a full employment today and every person would be living the dream.

    Now Bruce, you stop that rational thinking and trying to enlighten GoodWrench.

    No, he would much rather spout his demagoguery and racist rant (really, token? you are an unrepentant racist).

    Anything broaching rational and informed argument or debate is not his style.

    Your post is well done though.

    @Nantucket19

    Can you detail where the last stimulus funds went?

    I agree that even welfare and unemployment maintain a certain amount of cash flow in the economy. And yes, you need to employee people to meet the needs of that segment of the population.

    The maintenance and construction of infrastructure (roads and bridges) is a task of local government, then state government and those efforts are "subsidized " by the federal agency controlling the trust fund fed by gasoline and road taxes.

    Money spent by military families “in the local area” are as vital to the economy as are our “safety net” programs.

    You said: " Too many companies have outsourced / offshored their jobs or just cut their employee ranks to the bone."

    Why do they do this? Could it be to avoid higher taxes or forced benefits through government regulations?

    Tax cuts are great but really the corporations and the mega wealthy don’t need them. But tell me, if the government wrote a code that cut your tax liability in half would you take advantage of it?

    Again, can you DETAIL where stimulus funds went?

    Well done. It is refreshing to see people notice that this is not solely a Republican or a Democratic issue. It is time to realize that purist ideology will get us nowhere. I am convinced that most of us want the same things for our society, and that most of us recognize that extreme positions will get us nowhere.

    To reduce debt and deficit, we have to take a good long look at how the government gets its income and how it spends it. This requires serious responsibility, and the acceptance that jobs will be lost. We are long past the days where slogans and empty words are enough to placate the public; I hope so, anyway.

    This will require the electorate to do its homework and vote more for capability than for party affiliation. It starts with us. I would like to be optimistic, but so far no go. How long will it take us to wake up and do OUR job?

    “can you DETAIL where stimulus funds went?”

    Excellent question. Equally excellent: can you detail where the Pentagon spends its money? and on and on.

    I think it’s safe to say that no one really knows where the dollars go, and that is the basis for the rest of our problems. I don’t much care if my neighbor is intimately familiar with where the stimulus money went, but someone has the responsibility of knowing, and is probably paid handsomely for that responsibility. And that person seems to be shirking that responsibility. I can shirk responsibility for far less.
