because he has the correct consonant after this name

No, he sounds rational, and has demonstrated courage in the Army.

You think that a different guy who went to Harvard is the antichrist, because the consonant after his name is the mark of the devil himself.

No, because he's a no-talent rodeo clown (as demonstrated by his record) defended by putzes such as yourself.

you have established a pretty clear bias against reality, there.

Oh, that there is one sick burn. Owie.

You're pretty much a Greek in all but character encoding, as far as I can tell from your oral attachment to the public nipple.
And let me stipulate that I think that's perfectly acceptable as a choice. My chief gripe is the way MY tax dollars are taken to pour down the same little endless circular holes for the $18 trillionth time, while you are all on your high-horse about it.

I cannot tell whether you're outing yourself as politically left of damn_registrars, or just trolling. Yours is a refined temper tantrum. I suggest you look at Greece, and ask yourself if your Nietzsche-Piven "Will to Diaper" is going to succeed in crying your way to a Socialist Paradise.
Your safety net is a false god, and your austerity an ersatz satan. But sheep are going to believe the lies of Socialists, and culture burned for political power, until the culture gets so weak it implodes completely.
Childish blame is the low road, rather than responsibility. By all means: take it.

Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists' antagonism toward the gold standard.

I'm all for the social safety net that is actually paid for, not lied about via borrowing. However, those into recreational genuflection have bought off on a medicare/social security plantation.
My recommendation is returning power to the states, where budgets are "balanced". The scare quotes acknowledge the speciousness of calling state budgets balanced when the public sector pensions aren't properly funded, and Janet's constantly yellin' for more printing at the Federal Reserve.
