No Republican administration has balanced a budget since Eisenhower in 1957.

Dwight Eisenhower was last Republican President to preside over a balanced budget. He had a balanced budget in 1956 and 1957. Since then, there have been two presidents to preside over balanced budgets, LBJ in 1969 and Clinton in 1998 through 2001. During the last 40 years there have been five budget surpluses, all five were under Democratic Presidents: 1969, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001.

And just what percentage of our population are Progressive Socialists?
Liberals can never be progressives as a true Liberal is open minded and believe in the free market system.
From Wiki: Classical liberalism is a political philosophy and ideology belonging to liberalism in which primary emphasis is placed on securing the freedom of the individual by limiting the power of the government. The philosophy emerged as a response to the Industrial Revolution and urbanization in the 19th century in Europe and the United States.[1] It advocates civil liberties with a limited government under the rule of law, and belief in laissez-faire economic policy. Classical liberalism is built on ideas that had already arisen by the end of the 18th century, such as selected ideas of Adam Smith, John Locke, Jean-Baptiste Say, Thomas Malthus, and David Ricardo, stressing the belief in free market and natural law, utilitarianism, and progress. Classical liberals were more suspicious than conservatives of all but the most minimal government and, adopting Thomas Hobbes's theory of government, they believed government had been created by individuals to protect themselves from one another.
You do not even know the definition of a liberal/progressive.

All liberal/progressives believe in the Free Market, Freedom, Liberty, etc. etc. etc.

The sad truth is there is no such thing as a free market.

Fox News has ZERO liberal/progressives working for them.

They are all corporate Centrist Democrats just like the Obama's and the Clinton's.

Most Republicans like Reagan and the Bush's LOVE socialism for the wealthiest.

General Eisenhower Was Right
February 16, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/luxwlqe
A small article on page A12 of the January 29 issue of the New York Times is revealing with respect to the extent of the power of the military-industrial complex in American life. The article reports that the Army’s chief of staff, Gen. Peter Schoomaker, told the House Armed Services Committee that he is going to increase the size of U.S. forces by 30,000.

Did Congress authorize the increase? No. And when a few congressmen indicated to the general that they’d be pleased to have Congress authorize the increase, the general responded that Congress didn’t need to trouble themselves with providing such authority — that Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld had already authorized the temporary increase under his “emergency” power — and that the “emergency” would justify the increase for the next four years. In other words,“Don’t worry your pretty little heads, elected representatives of the people; the military bureaucracy has the situation well under control. Go back to your knitting.” http://fff.org/explore-freedom/article/eisenh...

So maybe he was. Does that mean Martin attacked Zimmerman? Asked you this before, but no reply. Let's say you attack me, I fight back, and find myself on top. That makes me the aggressor, the attacker? Appears to me Zimmerman was all talk, all mouth. But, hey, again, let the jury decide.
Yes, all physical evidence and the one eyewitness proves that Martin ATTACKED Zimmerman. You see, you Libtards think it is okay to attack people who offend you in anyway. Just like my next door neighbor who stole my TEA Party sign or the Occutards that break things simply because they are frustrated and then wonder why they got arrested.
I would suggest you Libtards grow up but I know that is impossible. You will always be immature cry babies.

Ah, you are a Extreme Libertarian. Well Gen. Peter Schoomaker did not say that and you can not prove it. I have know enough generals in my time and even a loony-left like Colon Powell or Wesley Clark would not have said that to Congress.
By the way, some generals did some funny math in the early 1980s and Congress got even. In fact I was in a meeting with Gen. Colon Powell when he read the letter from Congress. I could go into the details but I seem to bore people so this time I won't.

In the late 1970s Jimmy Carter, and the Democrat controlled Congress, cut the military to the bone and they cut Army flight school students in half. By 1982 the Army was short 2,000 aviators and Reagan doubled the number of students going through but someone got the idea that they would phase out warrant officer aviators so without Congresses knowledge or approval they increased the number of commissioned officers and cut back warrant officers.
By 1988 we had the correct number of aviators but we had one thousand to many commissioned officers while we were short one thousand warrant officer aviators and that was when Congress got involved.
I was at FORSCOM and worked in J1 and specialized in aviator (and EOD) assignments. After the meeting with Powell, all excess commissioned officers were reassigned to NONE aviator positions and promotions for COs dropped to close to 50% while WO promotions went to 90%.

Do you know that the Army has five-man EOD teams all over the place. They only do military munitions but if a local police finds something that looks like a military explosive device, Army the EOD get's called.
Well, these five-man EOD teams seemed to be at 40% strength or 200% and I spent just as much time trying to fix them then I did aviator unbalances.
Do you want to know how many aviators there are at Fort Campbell, KY? Probably around a thousand!

Ted Nugent weighing White House bid
Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Ted Nugent is considering a bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, the rocker told The Washington Post.

“Things are just so wrong in the country now,” Nugent said.“And I know that my answers would make things wonderful, unless you just refuse to produce, and then I’d recommend that you move to Canada. Or Illinois.”

Nugent’s wife, Shemane, told the paper that fans are “constantly asking him to run.”

“He’s talked about it before,” Shemane Nugent said.“But this time he seems more serious.”

Nugent made headlines during the 2012 election when he endorsed Mitt Romney, who reportedly tracked down Nugent at a sporting good store and pledged not to sign any laws restricting gun ownership. He also appeared at the State of the Union address last year as the guest of Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas).

Really? No DNA on Martin's hands proves he attacked Zimmerman?

Symmetrical stippling pattern consistent with straight on shot (both were standing) is consistent with kid on top of Zimmerman?

Zimmerman spending way more time than necessary to get back to his vehicle?(He was stalking his prey.)

It was FOUR but Speaker Gingrich was not under a Republican administration but a DEMOCRAT one. You do remember that Bill Clinton was a Democrat, don't you???
And no, I have never claimed Newt wrote them. Only that they were written by his staff. But they did not stop Clinton from vetoing the bill and shutting down the government!

1996 United States federal budget
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1996 United States federal budget is the United States federal budget to fund government operations for the fiscal year 1996, which was October 1995 – September 1996. This budget was the first to be submitted after the Republican Revolution in the 1994 midterm elections. Disagreements between Democratic President Bill Clinton and Republicans led by Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich led to the United States federal government shutdown of 1995 and 1996.

President Obama’s Missed Budget Deadlines
An Unprecedented Disrespect for the Law
January 27, 2012
The Budget and Accounting Act of 1921 requires the President to submit his budget request for the upcoming fiscal year no later than the first Monday of February. Earlier this week, the Obama administration announced that for the third time in four years it will not adhere to this legal deadline. The Office of Management and Budget cites “the need to finalize decisions and technical details of the document.” This failure to meet statutory budget obligations has become a pernicious pattern for the President and his party’s leaders. For over 1,000 days, Senate Democrats have failed to pass a budget resolution, ignoring the legal requirement to pass a budget resolution by April 15 of each year.

I have said this before that I consider myself a Conservatarian in that I am a Conservative with Libertarian leanings.
In 2012 the Libertarian presidential candidate got 1%(1,275,821 votes) of the popular vote. Most Libertarians vote Republican. Indeed both Ron and Ran Paul are Libertarians who are in the Republican Party but I would never vote for either of them as a presidential candidate.
Many TEA Partiers are Libertarians but I can not give you numbers. They are a strong force at Speaker Bonehead knows.
