    The current rate of Federal spending is not sustainable.

    The current rate of Federal spending is reckless and excessive.

    We need to cut Federal Spending to no more than our current revenue.

    We really need to cut our current spending to less than our current revenue so that we can start paying off our debt.

    When spending right now is producing debt that even my great-grandchildren won't be able to pay off, the only answer possible is yes. Any further added spending will take the deficit beyond repair. As it currently stands, more foreigners own our debt than we do. At what point will they call in their markers and put us under their thumb.

    Absolutely! They have no right to spend money that doesn't belong to them. They have no right to demand taxes on the level they force from people! This cycle will continue as long as they can force people to pay and pay again. You cannot spend what you don't have! Only the most conservative politicians make any sense.

    because they imagine that authorities can purely be and do good. that is a religious concept that authorities is all-understanding, all-useful and all-good that cannot be penetrated by evidence or reason. in case you question it, they in basic terms pass round and round ad infinitum assuming that each and every individual the themes should be no longer sufficient authorities. Why do they imagine this of route pretend concept? good question. that is both planned dishonesty, or a spread of emotional retardation. We see this emotional difficulty in toddlers. they imagine that there should be a large useful benevolent being to come back and sparkling up all their complications, at no value to themselves. maximum folk advance out of it, yet socialists never do. they are really searching for someone to shove a teat of their mouth to provide up them crying.

    Yes, definitely. Anyone with common sense would cut spending. There is debate if it's good to increase or lower taxes, but I don't see the sense in increasing spending to get out of a recession.

    I don't think it has any choice, either reduce spending or become a third world country.
