Nowhere do I claim to be, you do to some extent, but I certainly don't.
Del, I am worried about the future of this country, I am not trying to outsmart anyone, or prove people wrong. I am just trying to point out to a few others that we probably need to start opening our eyes, and pay attention to what DC is doing to us.
Maybe you like the road we are heading down, and that's cool, but personally I don't. I would love to take home more of my money. I would love to not pass on debt that my generation accrued to my children.
Fwiw, most of us pay attention, at least most that vote anyway. The problem is that our leaders can't come to a consensus as to how to fix it. And our leaders are merely a reflection of the voting populace. The best way to fix it imo is a balanced approach of cutting spending (mostly across the board) and most of the bush tax cuts to expire. But both sides are going to have to come to an agreement, and so far, they haven't.
