You are so easily duped. How does your "independence" solve anything? You still take sides v the "liberals". How is that working out? You allow yourself to be pigeon holed into a philosophy which enables the status quo.
All you do is to kick the can down the road, while the firmly entrenched dig in deeper.
It's working out wonderful I live in a state with few liberals and enjoy the fruits of my own and my family's hard work. Every day is a sunny day from where I am.

Enjoy your religion dupe.

You are living in an alternative universe. Although no doubt if Republicans default on the national debt, just like they've been threatening to do for the past 6 months, they will blame Obama and try to impeach him for it. I'd love to hear about all of the "waste" in the government. You mean Social Security? Medicare? The GI Bill?
Obama is the President, he'll decide how to spend tax income and he's required to pay the debt interest first. If he defaults, he'll be impeached.

LOL. Why is quantitative easing a crisis? Do you know what "crisis" means?
Our government is borrowing and spending at world record rates; we're in debt and the Fed is printing more money to keep down interest rates.

When you're broke, stop spending.

Everybody agrees, Obamacare is a disaster. Delay, defund and repeal.

I hope the shutdown continues; we've got to do something to stop wasteful government spending.

Agree - you have to cut out waste and save just like running your own household budget. Too much credit.

You sound like a bright guy. Should we stop spending as in: stop giving the money away in the form of tax breaks for the rich and the corporations; or, stop giving away the money in the form of Social Security Payments to the retired seniors?

Great. A closed minded homophobe. It's not a thing you "catch". It's a lifestyle choice. Mind your own backyard.

how in the world did you get that idea? i'm hetro myself but i acknowledge the LGBT community and support their struggle for absolute equality in every way including but not limited to gay marriage. you're right, "it's not a thing you catch" but you may want to re-think the "lifestyle choice" comment. not my job to spoon feed your education but for goodness sakes think before you speak (type). my poking at the other "Lefty Larry" has to do with his sock puppetry as he sometimes stalks me 'round here espousing his homosexuality in a "satirical" manner.

Truthy,

You are obviously an absolute dope.

The previous congress can not hold a sitting congress to something that is clearly unconstitutional and since the House of Representatives holds the purse it can choose to not fund it period.

All your name calling and such just shows how absolutely ignorant you are about the Constitution.

What part of that don't you understand? Just because you are willful in your ignorance doesn't mean that you are correct. In fact it just keeps showing all here that you are foolish.

But ignorance and foolishness is the hallmark of the left.

The "left" and the "right" are driving this country into oblivion in order to protect the status quo of building their collective purses through graft. Your continuous spats over philosphical differences enables them.

How is not taxing part of your income, "giving the money away"? How about we repeal Obama's medical device tax; surely that will do more to help affordable healthcare than the Obamacare disaster.

America has the highest corporate tax rate in the world.

Cut taxes, repeal intrusive regulations and stop wasteful government spending.

Those aren't the only choices. No and no; two very bad ways to address our budget problems.

Stop wasteful government spending; not obligation like debt interest or Social Security. Perhaps we should mean's test all benefits and entitlements.

Social Security is not an entitlement. It is a paid-into retirement plan.

The government is running deficits. It has done so for 200 years, with rare exception. How is it that continuing to do something that we've been doing for almost 200 years is not a "crisis"? Our federal deficit, as a percentage of GDP, is the same as it was in the mid 1980s when Reagan was President.

As for Obamacare, there is a Constitutional process for repealing it. There are plenty of laws I don't like. Maybe we should create a false financial crisis as blackmail to repeal those laws as well.

Our country is unraveling because maniacs can't stand the fact that Obama is President and they can't get their own through normal governing processes.

Wow, you really must be sincere in your concern about the deficit, with your advocacy of deficit exploding tax cuts and all.

Good grief.

Hi folks! It's me again, Lefty Larry. I am sure y'all know me by my other topix personalities- truth dig and ben gleck. In case you're just joining us, my favorite thing to do is sit at my computer and watch the latest Nobel and Pulitzer moments by my favorite communist dictator, who's also masquerading as the "leader" of the most powerful and feared nation on earth, previously believed to be a republic, AND post misinformation and propaganda on topix. Just thought I'd bring you this public service announcement as a reminder of the truth and to give you warm rainbow fuzzies in your tummies as you fall fitfully to sleep... Sweet "red" dreams of you, me and satan.(666/Hail Satan!)
