    And here in Wisconsin we have libtards trying to recall Gov. Walker for avoiding this kind of stupidity.

    I have come to the conclusion that credit cards were invented by liberals.

    No matter who wins the Presidential election this fall, we are going to see tax increases and hopefully spending cuts.

    The US Govt is only taking in 59ยข for every $1 it is spending. How long can that possibly go on?

    $168 million per MINUTE deficit.

    Obama has added nearly $30,000 to every households share of the national debt since he has been in office.

    Each household in the US owes $125,000 against the national debt averaged out.

    The state of Illinois is not alone.

    I would like to see a whole lot less spending, period.

    Government mucks up everything it "fixes" and it has been proven more than once before that when the economy is left alone, it produces more income for everyone.

    Which is more, 50% of 100 dollars, or 25% of 1000.

    No matter how many times it is shown to fail, the type of goverence that has failed Illinois will continue to happen. There is always a group that thinks they can make socialism work where all others failed.

    Hopefully, some day, we can stop spending all of our money on this.

    With the Gov. employing more people than the private sector, there is no end to the madness. Ever notice those that complain the most, are the ones on the payroll. It seems they think, that if they are bitching, no one will realize that they are the problem. Government employment welfare is just a cancer that is choking the life out of America.

    Same goes for the leeches that boast about their successes, and when no ones looking they are asking for a handout. They abuse a system that takes 10 times more funding than the private sector to operate, and cry that the gubmitt is wasting money. The real waste is in the governments seemingly endless employee pool.

    Government does nothing well except lie to and steal from the taxpayers.

    Look at social security, post office, medicare, medicaid, food stamps, cash for clunkers, Solundra, housing crash, bailouts for all their friends....need I go on??


    We'd be better off with the first 500 people in the Cleveland phone book running this country than who is now.

    You may want to rethink that "Cleveland phonebook" idea.

    The citizens of the 10th Congressional District of Ohio (mostly the west side of Cleveland) have elected and reelected Dennis Kucinich to Congress since 1997. Before that he was mayor and nearly ran the city into the ground.

    A proud member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Kucinich is an ethusiastic supporter of every goofy socialist idea and irresponsible piece of legislation coming down the pike.

    The rest of Cleveland is in the 11th Congressional District and is represented by Marcia Fudge. Ms. Fudge is another proud member of the socialist's only Progressive Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus. Her legislative interests are consistent with those caucus memberships.

    Kucinich and Fudge together don't have brains enough to organize a one car funeral, yet Cleveland's electorate embraces these knot heads. So... I'm thinking you may want to consider a different phone book.

    Sincerely,

    sissy

    The one common theme with all big cities and states that are broke is they are run by Dumbocrats. That is a FACT. And has been a trend for decades. It is those wanting free handouts that keep re-electing the trash. Just like will happen this Novemeber in the presidential election. The country is doomed by the freebie crowd. And the socialist politicians that promise to keep it up.
