    When you average a $1 trillion deficit as Trump has there is no excuse. Not for Trump, not for Congress (both Democrat and Republican) as they have all been criminally negligent.
    The idea that the debt and deficit are without consequence is foolish. One day the bill will come due and no one will like the result.

    I own four furniture stores. You have a very porous understanding of sales and I surely wouldn't want you working for me if that is your attitude about sales and customers. Selling a product to someone at the market value for that piece is called capitalism. Convincing them to buy from you and not the next guy is often predicated upon how fairly and well you treat your customers. That's not exploitation; that's doing business.

    Yeah, I can go along with this. We all pursue our own self-interests within these confines. If not, our laws are there to punish those who do not follow them.

    and by the way, they'd have to lock us both us for smoking that plant:D

    you mean like how your party wants to restrict abortions rights, sometimes even to include cases of rape and incest? If so, then you nailed it buddy! what about requiring prayer in schools? isn't that the government trying to dictate or legislate morality? what about restricting gay people from getting married because you think your Bible tells you to do so? yep, government trying to legislate morality alright! what about your pal Trump saying that he thinks Bible classes should be mandatory in schools? I'd definitely say that is the government trying to legislate morality. before you start lecturing on the dangers of the government legislating morality you should think about what your own party is doing....

    Any way you want to slice it my man, Trump has doubled the budget deficit in his first two years in office. Further, if you look at projections he will end his first four years in office average a budget deficit of 1.1 trillion dollars. All of those financial obligations that we have to an aging baby boomer population was true when Obama was President so insinuating that this is a new problem is foolish. You are correct that I do not like the guy but my dislike for him has nothing to do with the fact that he keeps signing trillion dollar budget deficits into law. The MSM also had nothing to do with his budget deficits. Trump signed those bills into law. No one else.

    One nation under god. Just so happened to be the greatness nation under the sun. Odd.

    I mean. I can find all the extreme view points on your side as well, but you lack the fundamental understanding of what religion does and is at a human level. Religion has played a vital role in all the worlds most advanced civilizations. To ignore this is rubbish. Perfect, no, but surely better than killing born babies. (See, I can do it as well)

    What a miss leading post of garbage. Obama had 3 years of deficit to GDP over 8%. Trumps highest has been 4%.

    I was born Catholic (big surprise being a Cajun). At 12 my parents told me from then on it was up to me to keep going to church because they thought I had enough belief in God and morality to turn out OK. They were right. I am not a bible thumper, don't attend church anymore and don't try to tell anyone except my kids to believe in God and have the morality that comes with it. With that said;

    Without belief in God (no matter whom you think God is) what do we use as a moral compass?. If there are no rules because there is no God in ones life what becomes the moral compass; government, man, satan or mother earth as in the case of the environmental climate change pyhcos?. We all had guns when I was growing up but we all had God in our lives too. We also thought life of the unborn and the born was precious today we are killing babies in the womb and headed for killing them out of the womb. Today God and respect for human life is gone and kids are now shooting up people with, it seems, no conscience at all.

    Abortion rights and a womens right to choose? That translates to a womans right to decide life and death in my view. Isn't this treating a woman as a goddess (God)? Why isn't the man whom the woman cannot have a baby without not have a 50% say? Because she carries the baby like all female species do is special? Because she does carry the child does that gives her the power of God to end life because it's a nuisance in most cases? Why is the man elimanated from the life of an unborn child?

    Politicians going after guns because kids are killing people at random is like putting a bandaid on cancer. The 1000 lb gorilla in this argument is the lack of morality the absence of God. America will fall as Rhome did if this continues.

    So you admit that your side wants to legislate morality? Sounds like it to me.

    But we are discussing politics, not religion. You sound like you are trying to make an argument for why your side should be able to legislate morality just because you have a book of lies that you believe in. Sorry Charlie, but you don't get to decide what people believe in or do not. Your religion is dying. People are leaving organized religion in droves because of this very thing.

    Another lie of your handlers that you believed. Trump is a liar and you are citing him. No wonder you enjoy your religion so much. No other group of people enjoying being lied to more than the religious.
