I'm not a member of any organized political party. I'm a Republican. Not only that, I'm not a member of the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) party, although I've gone to city council meetings for several years armed only with a tea bag and words that are always ignored. My conservative feelings are simple: I must balance my budget with limited funds. Governments should do the same. It's as simple as that.
Government is filled with liberal spenders who are in denial of their own actions. Local government feeds off the people and the state; state government feeds off the people and the feds; federal government feeds off the people and prints more money whenever it wants. It's a dangerous combination.
