Republican and Democrat Lies and Perpetual Spending

All the debating Republicans but Ron Paul want increased Pentagon spending and are happily lying to support their position, identifying reduced future increases being proposed in Congress as “cuts.” Democrats lie the same way when considering social spending. So far, no Democrat has stood up with Ron Paul to tell it like it is. Republican Candidates Warn Against Defense Cuts will bring you up to date.

The Dems are willing–sort of–to cut military spending or at least, stop expanding it. They won’t hear of any such treatment of Social Security, Medicare etc. They need the votes and money coming to them from those directions. The Republicans get more money from the purveyors of extending power around the globe and votes from the jingoistic patriotism they ramp up in support, another area where Dr. Paul refuses to join in. He’s the only grown-up in the bunch, too bad he’s so unelectable, right?

The problem is, revenue is insufficient to support either of those protected fiefs and cuts to only one can’t solve the problem. It all has to be cut. CUT, not slower rates of increase. Neither Demicans nor Republicrats will hear of that; it will make them unpopular. So they are spending us into the coming economic total collapse, hoping to bail out before it hits. Louis the XIV got there first with his “Apres moi, le deluge!” a quote coming in handy these days.

We need to flush the whole gang of corrupt thieves out of Washington, Dems, GOP and their lobbyists with a fire hose.
