Behind The Black Postings By Robert Zimmerman

A close look at the spending bills introduced in Congress shows that of the 70 members who sponsored the largest number of spending bills, 65 were Democrats, four were Republicans and one an independent.

This puts the lie to the claim that there is no difference between the two parties.

    I just hear that only about 25% of former Republicans identify as Republican, and now 43% identify as independent. That is going to tell the tale in the coming elections as long as a verifiable Conservative is in any race. I reject the Republican leadership and their efforts in vilifying the Tea Party, the Tea Party will again define the coming elections.

    Not so fast. If the Republicans can’t put up serious resistance to stop such profligate spending, they all might as well be Democrats.

    Sure, there is indeed a difference between Democrats and Republicans with regards to fiscal matters, but it’s only the difference of going over the cliff at 40 mph or 80 mph. Once your in freefall, it’s going to hurt like hell when you crash at the bottom.

    They are co dependent in a way, the one not willing or wanting to upset the other too much. What I see is the people who become empowered, by a kind of default begin to together generate a situation where the government is so big and the debt is so outrageous that it creates a permanent obligation of the people to pay it, a kind of critical mass of too big to fail or a modern form of politically acceptable slavery.

    I think this has to do with the level of technology that we find ourselves at, the internet, our size, our reserve currency status etc. this American condition has never existed on the planet before, do the old rules still fully apply?

    America is the biggest and the best of the worst.
