The Definition Of Insanity

Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result IS insanity. That why ,as many of you know, I am not a republican and certainly not a democrat. I am a conservative and as everyone who has any intelligence can see with this budget battle and the cave-in by the republican leadership, this deal is not fiscal conservatism. Its the same old
" we'll say one thing to win an election and then fool them with our spin when we get to washington". So, as I have been saying for a long time, its clear we are in the mess we're in because of the two major parties and I think that our problems will never be solved by republicans or democrats. I think its time to try something different. I really like this piece by Lee Cary at american thinker .com.. google this..

To balance the budget we have to pass a constitutional amendment that will bar every seated representative in congress and the President if the biudget is not balanced and spent in a balanced manner every year. If the current congress does not pass a balanced budget then noone seated can run for reelection or any public office or hold any government job for 10 years. Then the spin will disappear along with the spenders.
