“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

New bosses, same as the old bosses

This is how awful the federal government of the US is, even under republican control.....

From Moonbattery -- In the fifteen months that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives — led by Speaker John Boehner — has effectively enjoyed a constitutional veto over federal spending, the federal government’s debt has increased by about $1.59 trillion. 

The approximately $1.59 trillion in new debt accumulated since the Republican-controlled House gained a veto over federal spending legislation is more than the total increase in the federal debt between 1789, when the first Congress convened, and October 1984, when the 98th Congress was nearing the end of its second session.

To me, there isn't a nickel's worth of difference between republicans and democrats. It's all just window dressing on the same spending behemoth. If the GOP were controlled by Tea Party members we might have a chance, but when entrenched, beltway barnacles like John Boehner in charge, what's the difference between the parties when Nancy Pelosi would have spent only slightly more?
