    You are such a liar and manipulator. I never sad we “should all read one book”. I don’t even go to church.

    Again, there is scientific evidence of why religion was created for social structure and growth.

    Then educate me on your version because you literally compared it to a dictatorship.

    Have fun cutting all those entitlements, as you’ll never get the debt and deficit under control without backing out of the federal government guaranteeing a level of existence to everyone.

    Think about this we would have to cut spending by about 25% for 23 years to get out of debt. Only hope for us to return to responsible spending is that people quit loaning us money.

    Are those the facts pal?? ..... according to the official docs, the deficit for 2018 is 779 Billion. The RECORD receipts tends to fly in the face of the talking point that Trumps policies are resulting in lower income to the government.

    Further, if you go to the table of super function, you will find ALL of the increase in deficit is locked up in social spending (population growth dependent) and military spending, and benefits to VETERANS!, Are you trying to tell me you oppose increased support for the Men and Women who fought to preserve your right to sit around and post on an internet site?.

    As for military spending, it is always a favorite target of Democrat Presidents, to sacrifice our military for the perception that they are conserving money. Fact, Obama cut military spending over 100 Billion over his 8 years (700 Billion in 2009 to less than 600 Billion in 2016). Don’t fret, Clinton did it too. It is a staple of Democrats.

    I ain’t buying ur hate TigNC. Like I said, you may not like the guy ..... but don’t go around telling lies about him.

    What we need to do is stop dragging along the worthless baggage .... and that includes all the federal money going to pay for sanctuary policies. No assistance without accountability. Safety nets are not supposed to be lifetime awards, they are supposed to help u get back in the game.

    Another one for TigNC .... illegal immigration ... ya know, the active recruitment by Democrats to flood the border with pro socialist from failed socialist countries down south .... Nobody will give you a straight up number of how much they add to the deficit .... Demcrat sources will tell 15 Billion, Repugs will tell you over 100 Billion, so I figure the real number is somewhere in between. .... BUT, .... let’s conservatively say it’s 50 Billion .... that would have dropped Trumps deficit 729 Billion.

    Oh ... and just what is the probability that 10,000 people would “spontaneously” all decide to head for the US? ..... especially given it hadn’t happened before “ Let’s Sink Trump” drive of the blithering idiots in the MSM!,,

    Sure it's true for 2018 but I am talking about 2019. We are currently on pace for a budget deficit of 1.1 trillion in 2019.
    https://bipartisanpolicy.org/report/deficit-tracker/
    So in two budget cycles (Trump's first budget would take effect until October of 2017), he has, in effect, doubled the budget deficit.

    Tax revenues have gone up every single year since they've been implemented my friend. It's not like Trump has created some magic formula. Even still, you're argument is that since we are taking in a record amount of revenues we are incapable of having a larger deficit which is crazy.
    https://www.thebalance.com/current-u-s-federal-government-tax-revenue-3305762 (scroll down for yearly revenue totals)

    Well thanks Captain Obvious! You've just described the entire budget with the exception of interest payments so of course we will find ALL of the increase is locked up in social spending and the military.

    I happen to be one of those men who fought to preserve your right to do the same thing my friend so we'll just leave it at that.

    It also happens to be the only place we can make cuts right now without sacrificing the care of the boomers. Further, our military spending accounts for roughly 40% of the entire worlds military spending and we spend, every single year, as much as the next 7 largest military's. So, we spend as much as China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, UK, India, France and Japan combined.

    You are correct that I do not like the guy. That, however, does not keep me from recognizing the truth. There is no need to lie about Trump, he provides plenty of fodder all by himself.
