Some citizens have been dealt with very severely for doing so, in case you haven't heard!
Would you tolerate it or resist it?

"The dirty little secret," writes Washington Post financial columnist Steven Pearlstein, "is that most Americans don't really know what they think about the issues that so animate the political conversation in Washington, and what they think they know about them is often wrong."
The list of public misconceptions is long and politically crippling. Maybe the single most damaging is that the Obama administration has brought about an epidemic of government spending, tripling the yearly budget deficit and vastly increasing the national debt.
Never happened. History records that President George W. Bush, who inherited a $236 billion government surplus from the Clinton administration in 2001, handed President Obama a stacked deck eight years later.
The Congressional Budget Office's projected budget deficit for FY2009, beginning four months before Obama took office, was already in excess of $1.3 trillion. Indeed, the 2011 budget deficit is projected to be ever-so-slightly lower than the one Bush left on the White House doorstep. Despite the one-time $787 billion economic stimulus (spread over three years), no huge growth in government spending has taken place on Obama's watch.
Three proximate causes of the rising national debt remain: the Bush tax cuts of 2001, his unfunded Medicare drug benefit, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Alas, stating these historical facts has been declared out of bounds. It's playing the "blame game," a formulation greatly persuasive to Tea Partiers and conservative talk-show hosts basically because it rhymes.
Yes, the United States needs to get its fiscal affairs back to where they were under the previous Democratic administration. But not by slashing spending and laying off government employees during an economic crisis, as it appears the British people, to their collective sorrow, are doomed to relearn.
People have heard Republicans say "the failed stimulus" so often that many believe it. Again, according to the CBO, the (clearly inadequate) American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan resulted in approximately 3 million jobs, the difference between a lingering recession and a full-blown depression, most economists would say.
Also, many people swear Obama raised their taxes. Actually, he cut them. Almost one-third of the stimulus consisted of tax cuts, not spending. But because the money reached people in small increments through decreased withholding, most don't know it."
ALWAYS when they are out of power they spend all their time and effort in a smear attack and let the country suffer to gain power back...and the repeated lies by talk show millionaires and fox news...are prime examples ..you people really believe beck is so stupid he believes that crap he spews? 20 million a year from you idiots he will tell you anything you want..and i hand it to palin she learned quick..noticed beck seems to be her mentor. He has really gone over the edge from where he was on his old radio program..when he hit the big time he had to out stretch the oreally factor.
