Show Us Your Pen!

George Will says John McCain should "show the country his veto pen."

It sounds dirty but he might be right.

There is much to be said for "divided government." It helps curb the excesses in each party because compromises have to be made to get things done.

And this is interesting, in periods of divided government, spending increases (on average) of 1.73 percent. When either Democrats or Republicans have both houses and the White House spending has gone up over 5.26 percent.

Dems control the house and senate and still will after this election. If Obama wins government spending will soar. Just remember where they get the money.

If the LibDems take the White House along with holding both the House and Senate, what are the chances that we’ll hear their whining calls about the need for “checks and balances” as we had endured from the Left for so long? Not likely. Lying hypocrites are like that.

With Radical Liberals controlling the Big Three -and the Supreme Court- we’re really gonna be in need of some checks and balances but there won’t be anyone there to stop them.
Think before you vote, people.

Maybe you would be more comfortable if you moved to some Socialist dump that your beloved Liberalism has already ruined rather than trying to ruin this country too?

And, yes, anyone who whined like a child about a “need for checks and balances” during the Repub years but sees no need for such when the LibDems hold absolute power is without question a dishonest partisan hypocrite.
