    The System is NOT Broken

    Wrong!!! The CONgress of today can have absolutely no impact on what the CONgress of tomorrow does, They can sweet talk the people by telling them they are passing measures that will reduce the deficit 'over the next ten years' but the reality of the situation is the promise dies when that CONgress adjourns.

    That is why actions by THIS CONGRESS must be something more than lame promises.

    They must do something substantial, something with teeth or the game is over.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile -- hoping it will eat him last.

    Compromise is but the sacrifice of one right or good in the hope of retaining another -- too often ending in the loss of both.

    Compromise makes a good umbrella, but a poor roof; it is temporary expedient, often wise in party politics, almost sure to be unwise in statesmanship.

    From the beginning of our history the country has been afflicted with compromise. It is by compromise that human rights have been abandoned.

    It is the weak man who urges compromise -- never the strong man.

    The swift wind of compromise is a lot more devastating than the sudden jolt of misfortune.

    A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks.

    • You may be absolutely right in principal. You'll never get 100 years of crap, and that's what deficit spending is and the abrogation of the will of the legislature to do anything is, inside the tours of duty of congresspeople, it's just too big a problem to solve in that short a period of time.

      Again, you cannot rule without an underpinning of obesence to the long term goals, when the problem needs a long term solution. That underpinning I will admit, may be up in a puff of smoke.
