How about a amendment that pins our military spending to 1% of the GDP? Or maybe 5% of the federal budget? How about a amendment that our federal government can’t cook the account books by swapping budget lines around and that EVERY DEPARTMENT MUST BE ABLE TO COMPLETE A AUDIT? How about the equal rights amendment? Or the Voting Rights Act? There is a lot of things the so-called “conservative” could be doing that would actually be “conservative” rather than this scam they keep trying to foist off. Trickledown economics is just piss and supply side economics is too. Reagan definitively proved that the deficit doesn’t matter. I’m so tired of the old Republicans wheezing lies. It’s like hearing the same stupid story from a crabby old uncle for the billionth time. The government is not a person, not a household, and not a business. The federal budget is not like your f’ing checkbook. Those methods don’t apply. Just let that myth die already.
