    Iíd rather speak the truth and lose elections than have to lie and buy peopleís votes with other peopleís money. You canít win on the issues and you know it.

    Exactly, if a person didnít contribute to the pie how is it fair they get to determine how it is sliced?

    I wish we could just check off which programs we wanted our tax dollars to go to on our tax sheets. If I want all of my money to go to defense it should all go to defense, that way politicians would have to lobby for our money and how they want to spend it, if a program wasnít properly funded then it is obvious the people donít value it enough to fund it and it must be eliminated.

    Is that what you think Romney was doing?

    Exactly, if a person didnít contribute to the pie how is it fair they get to determine how it is sliced?
    How about a system where only those who serve in the military get to vote, like Starship Troopers?

    So the problem in one thread is that people vote freebies for themselves and now you want a thousand page budget on the ballot? Yeesh.

    Yeah, someone should totally have the option to contribute all their tax dollar to defense and nothing to the roads they drive on, police officers, teachers, parks, or anything else. I cant see the problem there TBH.

    OK we raise taxes....great. So what happens when Obama calls for more spending in the next 4 years?? Because anyone who thinks he's not planning on more spending is insane. There will be more for sure. Especially on the war front and government spending/power gimmicks to come. Government never stops expanding. It's like the Blob. Not using new tax revenue to balance the budget and pay off debt would be totally irresponsible. Just as bad as tax cuts and increasing spending.
