    and balanced approach all right.  

    I don't vote for people who want me to sacrifice.  I vote for people who deliver the goods.  

    •  So you vote for (3+ / 0-)

      people who make others sacrifice, though. As long as it doesn't affect you, that's OK.

        I accept it from my Church.  It's a nice religious concept.  Some people probably watched the Bible thing last week (I didn't), went to Good Friday services and all.  Cool.

        But I do not vote for candidates to make me poorer or to impose austerity on anyone else.  

        There used to be this American Dream thing where the rising tide lifted all boats.  We used to dream of a better future not a lesser future.  

        I will not sell the lesser future agenda.
