DEBT RIDDEN DEMOCRAT$
The spend happy democrats are proving to American's once again how poor they are at managing the people's money, having gone into debt by outspending Republicans by a 3-1 margin during the 2004 elections, and they still lost in an historic defeat in both houses of congress.
Like gamblers in Vegas who rarely, if ever win, democrats throw good money away banking on poor candidates using false emotional messages pandering to the poor with hate-filled rhetoric, violence and selfishness directed at anyone who disagrees with their liberal ideology.
According to Newsday.com, Democrats are heavily in debt. The DNC raised $4.1 million last month, based on its FEC report. It spent $7.6 million, including a donation of $1.5 million to Virginia Lt. Gov. Timothy Kaine's campaign for governor and a $1 million transfer to the Senate Democrats' fund-raising committee.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which raises money for House Democrats, began February with $11 million in debt from last year's elections. It had $1.5 million in the bank as this month began. The DCCC raised $1.5 million and spent $1.7 million in January.
The RNC raised $10.5 million in January, according to its monthly report to the Federal Election Commission. The GOP spent $8.7 million, including a $1 million transfer to Senate Republicans' fund-raising committee and nearly $1 million in telemarketing, according to an analysis by Political Money Line, a nonpartisan campaign finance tracking service."
With Howard Dean now managing things for the democrats, it is likely their money problems will only get worse. While the DNC said Dean's presidential campaign raised tons of money on the internet, not much of it actually came in, and he suddenly ran out of money before the final stretch in the Iowa primaries.
This is just one example of how democrats don't keep their word about money they raise, and why they are always begging for higher taxes to cover for their wasteful programs. Throwing taxpayer money at problems does not solve them. Democrats feel it's like playing with free money so they can just collect it from the public and fill in the details later. But they never do.
"The Roosevelt-era voters, who hold Social Security untouchable, are dying off very quickly now; while the post-boomer generation, which discounts its reliability, is coming into its high-voting-rate period of life. The boomers are split." –– Tony Blankley, Washington Post
Cut the Dead Wood!A full and clear plan of action is needed before anyone should ask for any money in taxes. Companies are accountable to their shareholders and must have plans for spending the money they make to keep the company profitable. The same should go for government. Ideas are great, but they must be implemented with set, reasonable goals that result in measured progress and can be seen by all, not hidden in some bureaucrat's office.
Congressmen and woman need to be measured and held accountable with a report card system similar to the way Teachers are now with President Bush's No Child Left Behind act.
The amount of waste in government is probably enough that to feed the poor nations of world and wipe out starvation. Those running for government office need to held accountable for all the decisions they make.
The real need in Washington is to get rid of the dead wood (Byrd, Kennedy, Kerry, Rangle, Leahy, Clinton, Boxer, Schumer and Feinstein) on the left-side of the isle who come from old-style bureaucracy, replacing them with modern, reality-minded, younger (but not moderate or liberal) congressmen. I can write this knowing that democrats will never listen to this advice, as they've decided to "refine their message" going further left instead of dealing with the realities of why they've lost for so long.
Senators should have term-limits to keep up with the times so that stuffy and arrogant ways of thinking are updated on a timely basis.
A discussion of real ideas needs to take place culminating the best streamlined plans for implementation on how best to solve problems while spending the least amount of taxpayer money.
