Original Starting post for this thread:
That posterchild for "personal responsibility" is the biggest spender since LBJ. BTW, LBJ had a war to fight, too. But even Dubya manages a to find a way to make him look like a piker:

WASHINGTON — George W. Bush, despite all his recent bravado about being an apostle of small government and budget-slashing, is the biggest spending president since Lyndon B. Johnson. In fact, he's arguably an even bigger spender than LBJ.

“He’s a big government guy,” said Stephen Slivinski, the director of budget studies at Cato Institute, a libertarian research group.

Defense spending is the big driver — but hardly the only one.

Under Bush it's grown on average by 5.7 percent a year. Under LBJ — who had a war to fund, too — it rose by 4.9 percent a year. Both numbers are adjusted for inflation.

"I was being sarcastic you know this right?"

Hell Lucky, you do it so well. Your sarcasm and your sincere lunacy blend so well I can't really separate the two anymore. Sometimes when I read your stuff all I can picture is this G Gordon Liddy look-a-like pointing a somber finger at his computer monitor a then speaking the words .....

This line:

"God help you when they come for you and you scream for your life. And no one comes to your aide..."

was just so far over the top I think it gets a nomination for a G. Gordon Liddy meritorious honorable mention .......
