You have to take the platform as a whole, it doesn't work if you just cherry-pick it. I'm certainly not the only libertarian who thinks that intergenerational debt is theft and that while the preference would be cutting spending if that "can't" be done then revenues MUST increase to erase the deficit. That's the basis of fiscal responsibility and was in fact the way the government conducted itself until the 16th Amendment.
"Government should not incur debt, which burdens future generations without their consent."
Why can't spending be cut?

There are much better solutions to people receiving affordable health care than bankrupting the entire nation.
And safety nets will always be in place. The holes, unfortunately, just got bigger.
We've waited four years for you to fill in the blanks.

Yet all you do is repeat the same mantra;

"There are much better solutions to people receiving affordable health care than bankrupting the entire nation."

The entire nation awaits Lorac's explanation of what would be the best way to provide healthcare for all Americans.

Why do you leave us in suspense??

Oh, I forgot. There is no answer. You are only repeating th emantra your FAUX mentors have provided you.

They never tell you how it can be done, they just assure you there is a better way.

Yet all your side has done is fight Obamacare, never offering any sort of alternative.

The House voted 33 times to overturn Obamacare.

If they spent a fraction of that energy in coming up with ways to improve it, they might be taken seriously.

But your side doesn't wnat all AMericans to have basic healthcare.

Your side hates 47% of your fellow citizens, by their own words, often repeated here.

And you wonder why Obama is taking your Party apart??

Tell that your Republican Party.
The Science says man made global warming is real & a threat.
What proof do you want? There is no absolute proof, there can't be.
When we follow your plan & do nothing and we experience changes, you f*king morons will blame sun spots or giraffe farts.
I have an idea, you can remain stupid & ignorant. When our grandchildren feel the effects & suffer in the future, they will look back & think what an ass you & the Republican Party were. You had a change to act & instead you played politics.
Advocates of man-made global warming have no proof, just inferences drawn from temperature records that show minor differences over a very, very short period of time.

Your pathetic attempt at ridicule negates nothing Coulter[or me] says. Bizarre how the leftists ignore Clinton's reputation as a serial sexual abuser and accused rapist. His affair with Lewinsky in the WH was sordid and tawdry.

I think fair minded people today would say FDR's image has been severely tarnished, of course that would never be taught in our public schools and rarely in universities. It's easily argued that his policies extended the great depression and that he goaded Japan into attacking us. Also a rumor he had advance knowledge of Pearl Harbor and did nothing. He certainly set the welfare state into motion.
Every argument that he extended the Depression has been debunked by economists.

Fact is, Republiclown demands that he cut back on spending caused the economy to slip back into recession in 1937.

It had nothing to do with Roosevelt but that he caved in to the Senate Republiclowns.

I'm sure you don't want to get into the right wing attempt to field an Army to overthrow Roosevelt.

Gen. Smedley Butler ring any bells in sockpuppet world??

BWAHAHAHAHAHA

It proved that austerity during an economic crisis is stupid, something that is lost on today's Republiclowns, as well.

We have over 100 years of recorded data plus other means of determining climate conditions for centuries.
100 years is nothing in the life of the universe, less than one second in a year.

Not to mention that "recorded data" beyond the last few decades is poorly documented with respect to methodology of collection.

Most of these libs get their knowledge of Fox second hand, they spout ignorance repeatedly. I have to mute it when the race traitor Colmbs comes on. He's a typical self loathing jew.
I spend my mornings over coffee surfing between Fox, MSNBC, CNBC, and a local station. Now I never hear anybody claim that MSNBC is anything BUT a liberal outlet, they even say it themselves. Its Fox viewers who are deluded into thinking what they're getting is "Fair and Balanced" instead of the "conservative" counterpoint to MSNBC. Its laughable that because they say it so much y'all believe it MUST be true.

Benghazi, Mali, and the Need for a Defensive American Strategy

....In Washington many of the same Congressmen who clamor to start new wars in Iran and Syria are the most vehement in attacking the State Department for not protecting its personnel. Often they are also those who know the least about the outside world. Causing many of America’s problems, it is the American congress and its neoconservative leadership who think Washington can order the whole world to follow America’s prescriptions. Bribes, bombs and intimidation is their idea of how to run the world. As British historian Anatol Lieven, then with the New America Foundation put it, America, which most benefited from the international rule of law, was bent on “kicking to pieces the hill of which it is king,” the “rule-based liberal capitalist order” which it helped establish after World War II.

It is they who deny, in the words of their much admired Bush official John Bolton, any role for the rule of international law on the grounds that “it only constricts Washington’s freedom of action.”

You've seen it before. You're just a denier. No amount of evidence would work for you. You're a blockhead!!

----------

""The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

"Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal."

- Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented in the past 1,300 years.1

Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advances have enabled scientists to see the big picture, collecting many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale. Studying these climate data collected over many years reveal the signals of a changing climate.

Certain facts about Earth's climate are not in dispute:

The heat-trapping nature of carbon dioxide and other gases was demonstrated in the mid-19th century. Their ability to affect the transfer of infrared energy through the atmosphere is the scientific basis of many JPL-designed instruments, such as AIRS. Increased levels of greenhouse gases must cause the Earth to warm in response.
Ice cores drawn from Greenland, Antarctica, and tropical mountain glaciers show that the Earth’s climate responds to changes in solar output, in the Earth’s orbit, and in greenhouse gas levels. They also show that in the past, large changes in climate have happened very quickly, geologically-speaking: in tens of years, not in millions or even thousands.""
