    rather than post the entire article ill just pose a question...If the health care bill...and cap & trade...and Obama's budget etc...etc...etc...are supposed to be deficit neutral, then why raise the debt limit......again? This will be the 7th raise since 2001 (at least since the data i have only shows 2007 projections...not up to 2009), I thought the Dems campaigned on being different from Bush...yet they renew crummy unconstitutional legislation (the Patriot act) and continue to raise the debt limit for government spending plans...they must assume that we are idiots and cant look at history...thats got to be the only explanation for this.

    “The characteristic of genuine heroism is its persistency. All men have wandering impulses, fits and starts of generosity. But when you have resolved to be great, abide by yourself, and do not weakly try to reconcile yourself with the world. The heroic cannot be the common, nor the common the heroic.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Freedom is the natural yearning of the human sprit as we were endowed by our creator.
