Reduced demand for education, welfare, medical care, prisons, etc.
At the same time, Galt believes that border security could be improved without such massive expenditures if the government was really committed to border security.
Increased number of taxpayers pay for the increase in demand.

Common sesse Stonehead, it took you eight years to destroy ever thing and now you want an instant fix? Every recession and depression that this nation has ever had was after an eight year reign of you idiots. There are none so blind as he that will not see..Right wingers are Americas Al Qaeda, fanatical in nature,easily programmed and like robots possess no reasoning ability.
That's pure Barbara Streisand.

How about the Carter Debacle-- over 10% unemployment, almost 20% interest, inflation in the teens. But I guess that was... Nixon's fault?

How about the recession that GWB inherited from BJ Clinton? Don't know about that one, do you?

What does the economy matter to you parasites anyway? It isn't like you were planning to get a job anyway-- as long as your gubbermint checks keep coming, your EBT card gets refreshed, what the hell do you care?

I always wondered-- does it bother you leeches knowing that we, the taxpaying conservatives, could live fabulously without you parasites being on the planet but you would probably starve if you couldn't get our money? I mean, it must bug you to be eating out of the hands of conservatives.

It was bound to happen. Too much land, too many people coming to the New World, not enough Indians.

The killing, enslavement and taking of land began with the arrival of the Europeans but peaked when it became federal policy under President Andrew Jackson, Democrat.

In one of the saddest episodes of our brief history, Cherokee men, women and children were taken from their land, herded into makeshift forts with minimal facilities and food and then forced to march a thousand miles, eventually being allowed to move in small groups separately through the wilderness to forage for food the rest of the way to Oklahoma.

About 4000 Cherokee died as a result of the removal. The route they traveled and the journey itself became known as "The Trail of Tears".

Although Native American Indians were often misunderstood and lied to by presidents before this event, it was a Democrat president, Andrew Jackson's, treatment of native Indians that was most atrocious...kemosabe.

Something present day democrats don't like to be reminded of. The history of their own party - like in the south.

The mainstream media is heralding today's "fantastic" employment numbers as evidence that the U.S. economy is steadily recovering. But is that really true?

OF course:• B29: A lighter-skinned black woman, possibly Hispanic, who lived in Chicago at the time of Trayvon’s death. The woman, who works at a nursing home, told lawyers that she prefers reality shows to news and worried about her eight children.

IMO this woman from Chicago is going to hang the jury.

Are you just confused or have you been drinking?

The vote for the resolution using military force in Afghanistan was almost unanimous. The resolution using military force in Iraq was supported by Democrats by a 110 vote.

If no Democrats had voted for either you'd have a point.

But you have no point.

The GOP doesn't have blatant organized anti-Indian, anti-black racism on public record or in the national archives.

The Indians turned in their weapons and the government took care of them? All good Indians and sheep believe their handler's propaganda. It's how and why the Indians have stayed on the reservation.

The DNA of the demokratic party is inbred with 100+ years of hate and racism.

More than half of Democratic Senators voted for the use of military force in Iraq. Without them, the Iraq War would have never been sanctioned.

As someone else put it:

The War in Iraq was only approved because of a majority Democrat vote in the Senate. The Democrats then turned around and called it "Bush's war". It's intellectual dishonesty.

Thomas Jefferson's attitude toward the Indians was not always consistent. He went out of his way to describe the Indian people of North America as a noble race who were the innocent victims of history...but it was during Jefferson's presidency that the basic decisions were made that required the deportation of massive segments of the Indian population to land west of the Mississippi.

Jefferson instructed Lewis and Clark to offer friendship, trade, education and even offer vaccination for smallpox to the Indians. He explained the nation's policy "is to live in perpetual peace with the Indians, to cultivate their affectionate attachment from them, by everything just and liberal which we can do for them within the bounds of reason."

But Jefferson was also concerned about the land falling to the French or the British and the Indians, unfortunately, presented a potential threat to that happening.

The plight of the Native American Indians was a very sad one.

The Trail of Tears was nothing but inhumane.
