Like the Republican approach until I realized who we were borrowing from and who was going to have to pay the bill.

As would I prefer--and as would the rest of us. I think most of us here would agree with the assertion of preferring responsibility form leaders. A kind of responsibility which should have been the norm...however that was conveniently forgotten about "in the interests of business" and to "promote growth to the economy".

It's a great principle, fiscal responsibility. In fact the ignoring it is my frustrations with the republican party. It does not look good when a supposedly conservative party decides to abandon their conservative principles.

The dems picked up on that and I believe such was key to their persuasion and victory in the recent election. Even if the dems really are just going to go on just as much of a spending spree.

Yes it is the free market, but with that freedom comes responsibility. I'm sorry I have to beat a dead horse. The ugly truth regardless: The 'peasants' are left footing the bill for a lack thereof every time.

A time long, long ago when republicans' "conservativism" extended out to an actual conservationist mentality--re above what I was saying about responsibility. Apparently passe nowadays. Sadly.
