The people of the United States have been brainwashed by government schools into believing that government must always provide something for somebody, and however it's paid for down the road is of no consequence.

Thanks to liberalism, getting something for nothing is now the American Way.

It's taken several generations for Progressive influence to take hold. It will take at least a generation or two to break the bad habit of government dependence.

Vote "no" on bond issues. Don't give bureaucrats more money until they prove they can be trusted with the money they already have.

the regressives are always with us.

They couldn't hack "book learnin'" so they want to deny it to others. Besides, if you don't have 21st century skills you will only be suited for the 19th century jobs they want you to do and you won't argue with the boss.

There is nothing "regressive" about being frugal with public money. There is nothing "regressive" about pay as you go. Our government wastes money at an astounding rate.

Fully $209 billion dollars a year goes to pay the interest on the Federal debt. How many schools could be built in a year with $209 billion? How many teacher's salaries would that pay?

To break it down, just the interest on the Federal debt alone equals nearly $600 per year for every man, woman, and child in the United States. That is money that does nothing for the American people, but does plenty for foreign bankers.

Liberal policies, enacted by both parties, are completely to blame for the economic woes the United States faces today. For the government to spend money it does not have, basing payments on future tax revenues that might not be there, is complete financial irresponsibility.
