    Note I said spending versus revenue(income=taxes, etc.). Which is for the government balance sheet, not the whole economy that includes private sector(GDP).
    BTW it's " you're " not "your".
    And they let you be an officer ???
    "And They Allowed you to be An Officer" is, I do believe, what you intended to type

    • Excuse me, but barely half the eligible voters voted and barely half of those voted against Trump
      More voted for Clinton.

        Posting on the Internet was never a requirement. and if Trump's spelling is accepted and people, such as yourself make excuses for him,

          The U.S. is not a Democracy, it is a representative republic, only the destruction of the education system by the Democratic leftist teachers unions prevents this from being common knowledge.

          I would completely support elections by apportioned electors to various colleges by districts instead of by overall popular vote. My question is how would those districts be set up?

          I can already hear the zombie chants of racist, sexist, homophobe, Islamophobe, and Nazi. It would be fun to try and do this and listen to the idiots like Cortez squeal.
          The United States is a constitutional republic. And it is not a democracy because the president is not directly elected by the people.
          We are not now that strength which in old days
          Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
          Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
          To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

            As I keep saying everyone with a brain has known democracy is idiocy since Athens. The U.S. is not a democracy because it is a representative government. It was perfectly logical that people with property were the only original voters because the founders were well aware of Roman bread and circus. Extending the franchise was based on the idea that increased education would lead to a sober and judicious population. I'm not advocating that we return to restricted voting rights only a more sober and judicious legislative branch that does not abdicate their responsibilities to the executive branch.

            The Soviet Union's constitution is an excellent example of how a constitution is only words on paper. It's the character of the people that gives those words meaning. It's all about self determination at the personal level something the Democratics and never Trumpets seem incapable of comprehending.

              Or they do comprehend it but it's too much effort on their part.

                Only slightly more, and in Ayn Rand terms just shows the decline of our nation as the looters are starting to outnumber the producers/makers.

                  Well yeah, interruptions and such ...
                  HPJ has a long history of mis-spellings and questionable grammar, etc ...

                  A minor quibble perhaps, but when such sloppy language use is applied to pick nits, perhaps some mirror examination of precision and details would apply ...

                    Which would suggest a seditious and potential treasonous agenda in form of "fundamental change of (US)America" intentions.

                      Does this mean your support status quo of retaining the Electoral College ???

                        Not when it means if Trump gets re-elected, of course.

                              Absolutely it is. And history stands by my claim.

                              And I'm not a Democrat. Thought you would have learned that by now.

                                Lots of things left to learn, but no longer have the strength or the interest to do so. Apologies all the same.

                                Don't want the EC? Neither do I, but I don't have decent replacement for a system so corrupt that even the Mafia would envy it. And what difference would a replacement system make anyway? All we have is two totally corrupt parties who actually mirror one another and an electorate not fit to even be allowed to cast their votes.
