    I don’t believe in “if” anymore
    “If” is for children building daydreams.

    Not far off from what I read, Olfart.
    A write suggested that when you use the word but, you make all the words said prior meaningless.
    “He’s a nice guy, but…” (he’s not a nice guy)
    “It’s a good idea, but…” (bad idea)
    Over the past two weeks, I’ve heard some Republicans who have supported some very conservative positions called RINOs and find themselves challenged from people who are even further to the right.
    If Independents, moderates, and Democrats actually go to the polls to vote, this wave of ultra conservatism will enable an even more empowered ultra liberal gov’t which, history has shown, is also damaging to gov’t and unity.
    It is truly time for moderates on both sides to come together. Compassionate conservatives and fiscally responsible liberals are urgent for the long term success of our nation.
    Respectfully,

    not sure we have a few centuries left. more like a decade or two before the Chinese surpass us. In America we value material things over education, right now the Chinese value education over material things. That will change when they surpass us, but with over 1 billion people they will be hard to overtakes again.

    As to our government it is sad when compromise becomes a bad word. The purpose of the 2 party system is supposed to be government by compromise. Damn I forgot the Tea Baggers hate government

    Correction: The food stamp program has never, ever been cut. Thy’ve just tried to slow down the spending. More people on food stamps now than in the history of the program. Look it up.

    For a family of 3 on the SNAP program, food stamps are cut $29 a month.

    Obama has practically given away the farm to them for years. The record shows it was the Teapublicans obstructing. That is what they ran on in the first place.

    What "ultra Liberals do you mean? They are not in any organized fashion or in the Democrat party. The imbalance is so great we would need and equally large counter balance just to return to some kind of equilibrium.

    Even so Rome both its republic, its Republic inside and Empire outside, then a full Empire lasted in all nearly 2,000 years. Thought the Rome at the beginning and the two at its end were very dissimilar.

    @totalloser

    China is far from surpassing us even at the end of our Republic. However there is a good chance an Empire will replace it.

    Sorry, there are no cuts, just the yearly increase has slowed.

    There are those who work for a living and those who vote for a living.

    Are you KIDDING me?!!
    -
    Boehner was shocked, just shocked to learn that the government shutdown would not accomplish anything.
    -
    I wish a reported had asked what it was that Boehner thought would have been accomplished.

    The level of extremity to which liberals might reach would be based on the ratio of liberal to conservative, Night Gaunt.
    I would like to think that a White House, Senate, and HoR that was all Democrat would equal a moderate and thoughtful body. History has not born such hopes out as reasonable. We need a multiparty system in order for the minority as well as the majority of our neighbors to have their needs met where possible and reasonable.
    It is a shame we can’t focus more on what MUST be done instead of the emotionally charged social issues with which both parties divide us.
    I agree with you in theory, NG. But history shows that absolute power corrupts, absolutely.
    Respectfully,
    C.
