Rivers are running red all over the world, Iran has an air base in Syria with missiles aimed at Israel, Assad is getting poison by the ton for his gas warfare from North Korea and our politicians are arguing the legitimacy of bakeries and gay marriage when they are not arguing over a civilian's Constitutional right to own a modern designed rifle.

Of the choices, "other" is the only answer to the poll question.

I thought I said that. The enemy within. Note no modifier.

Obama doubled the national debt. That's a fact. But it's not lost on me that while the present Congress was "averting" the second government budget shutdown in a month by authorizing a trillion dollar debt increase they were also considering a 1.2 trillion dollar infrastructure fix bill.

That's not a debt problem, that's a leadership problem.

My earlier comment regarding the four largest deficits was ONLY responding to a certain post...

In the bigger picture, I agree with jimbo...The Republicans are, also, FAR from having clean hands on this...

But hey. Don't let facts interfere with your hatred of Obama or you ignoring the culpability of the Republicans...
My expectation is that Trump will continue the Republican trend and start driving up the deficit again...
But all I'm gonna hear from most Republicans is "Bu-Bu-Bu-Bu-OBAMA!!!"

Simple math...

If the deficits went "so far down", the debt would not have gone from $11 trillion to $20 trillion during Obama's presidency...

The absolutely hysterical, bullsh*t, immature pile of crap neglects what I've written earlier...

Quote:

The whole reason it "looks" like it went down so far under Obama was because the deficit SKYROCKETED under Obama in the beginning of his tenure...

U.S. Deficit by Year: Compared to GDP, Increase in Debt and Events




Saying Obama made the deficits go down is just as retarded as someone gaining 250 pounds and then yelling how much weight they've lost when they get rid of 125 of it...

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't your comment about "DEBT?"

Now that you've been exposed it's "Deficits"?


When the Government borrows money, that's debt when it borrows money to increase spending budgets beyond revenues that's Debt. I believe Deficit occurs when they spend beyond the President's Budget. This whether on not they borrowed more money. IE,,,; They are not the same thing, nor is one a function of the other.

Republican Party is the biggest threat to America. The GOP benefactor Russia is second.

NK. Without question. Have been for a good decade or so.

Doesn't get much worse than a country ruled by a mentally unstable madman who has a nuclear arsenal and wouldn't hesitate to use it.

I believe the world has more to fear from Lil' Jimmy rocket man than the USA.


Their alignment with Iran could put a nuke into Jerusalem from Syria. They could drop one on South Korea or Japan,,' even China (yeah that would be both possible and interesting) causing bellicose geopolitical alignments, and re-alignments, throughout the world.

Any such action would unite Americans, not threaten our nation's existence. That threat is internal mostly political,. Those pressures, and subsequent fractures, are growing daily.
