You people who ONLY repeat Fox TV have not one clue what you are talking about. Foreign aid AND welfare combined equals about ten percent of the federal budget. The military spending and Social Security and Medicare equals about 80 percent of the federal budget, and you all want SS and Medicare and a new war in Iran. And then you all say you want lower taxes and that Obama is trying to take from the rich to give to the poor. The reality is you all are doing that. If you want 80 percent of the budget spent on SS, Medicare and military spending, and half of what we spend is borrowed money, deficit spending, then you would have to raise taxes, double them in order to pay for the things you want. And, when the 80 million baby boomers go onto SS and Medicare, those two programs would use up way over 100 percent of the federal budget, and those programs are exactly same as European socialism, and you all want those programs, and those programs are the drivers of the debt and what uses up most federal tax money.<quoted text>Your cheap class warfare rhetoric indicates to the world that you're nothing less than a garden-variety, spineless Marxist who believes that the indolent of society have the right to plunder and pillage from those who have succeeded.
You all do not realize when you listen to the Republican debates what they are saying to you. They are telling you that you can EITHER have a war in Iran OR you can have SS and Medicare, that they want to end SS and Medicare and have a war in Iran and make you all pay a 15 percent federal income tax to pay for the oil wars and they want you to go without any government help, without SS, Medicare and Medicaid. And, once you all figure that out, you won't want a war in Iran. You will all be saying you want SS and Medicare not a war in Iran. And, that is exactly what Ron Paul is trying to tell you, that he would not have a war in Iran and that instead he would keep SS and Medicare for the people who are on it.
Did you see Santorum say last night that they have to end SS and Medicare now, that Newt is lying that he can pay everyone 55 and over SS and Medicare. He said they would run up trillions of dollars of debt to do that. And, at that point, both Newt and Romney admitted that is the truth. You can either have a war in Iran and a military that is larger than the next 17 mililtary countries combined, OR you can have your socialist entitlements, OR you can have both and you can pay twice as much taxes. Those are your REAL options.
