There is one thing that Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Reagan have in common

I was thinking about this so much. A lot of ppl here attack the other side president for spending so much money but then there own side president spends ALOT of more money. I think each president keeps spending more money then the last one after 8 years.

America always chooses a president who will spend too much money. But then America always complains they are spending too much money.

Why??

(Almost) everyone wants the government to spend less money on other people...but they are perfectly fine with the government spending more money on themselves.

we see liberals complaining that the government is spending too much, and then they want all this free shit.

we see conservatives complain that the government is spending too much, and then they want all this oversight and military.

the government is the #1 business in the world. they are going to get their money and spend it. there is no easy way to change that.

Yes so true but I have a question about the last part of what you say. Why is it so hard to change it?

If we all know that is it the issue why don't we stop voting in these kind of ppl? Is because secretly we like this? Or because shady secret special interest groups change things? Or because everyone is just too greedy and selfish like Dave says

Were going through the same thing here in Ontario. The liberals ran up horrendous debt, the largest debt of any sub-sovereign nation on the planet. Over $1 Billion per month in interest payments to service the debt. We elected a conservative government with a big majority with the mandate to balance the budget and cut waste.

So 1 year later the cuts are coming, every agency and branch of government is being asked to find efficiency and cut. Oh and the unthinkable ask is 4%, you'd think the world had stopped spinning by the belly aching coming from the media, the left and the unions. Children will die, seniors will be out on the street in their wheel chairs and there's going to be pestilence.....folks, left or right there is only one tax payer and only so much money. If you can't buy groceries you don't take the kids to Disney dammit.

Honest to christ if I hear one more time about "free" education, "free" healthcare or 'free fuckin' anything" I'm going to lose my shit. It's not FREE. We all pay for it with higher taxes and less services.

No kidding, it will be the death knell of capitalism if it continues unchecked. Nothing is free.

There is too much money to be made through politics, so the money will never leave politics. there are a few congressmen on both sides that actually want to cut spending, but until you eliminate pacs, super pacs, lobbyists, etc, there isnt going to be much of a change.

The biggest issue is the inherent political system that is created within a democratically elected body.

The beneficiaries of tax-payer fueled spending often balk at proposed cuts. Politicians are voted out of office when their constituents are angry, so they often lack the political will to make necessary cuts. Decades of political wrangling over the Social Security program is a prime example of this, with politicians avoiding action that would anger voters.

There are many ways to reduce the federal deficit and the federal debt. The problem, however, lies in the fact that reducing either of these will provide no long term solution unless the mindset of the populice at large and the mindset of Congress is fundamentally changed - and that is asking for a paradigm shift in macro human nature, which simply isn't going to happen.

The bottom line? There is no realistic fix for the long run.

Voting for a guy to bring jobs back, talk about asking for free hand outs. Sucking on the tit and complaining about it is the ultimate irony.

Not created. And dems get money the same way. Indeed, a republican (McCain) led the fight against Citizens United and their ilk.

Don't hate the player, hate the game. The game is created by Citizen United which is all on the Republicans.
