  •  Without the Eternal War, we have no deficits, (6+ / 0-)

    we solve our debt. From this day forward I see no reason to ever separate the two. Want debt to get paid off and deficits to disappear? Stop the Eternal War.


    Actual Democrats: the surest, quickest, route to More Democrats. And actually addressing our various emergencies.

    •  Needs To Be Paid With Deferred Sacrifice (0+ / 0-)

      I for one have sacrificed zero, NADA, nil, zilch for any of our wars.  And neither have a huge majority of Americans.  Time for the foaming at the mouth flag wavers and capitalist opportunists with no skin in the game to pay up along with the rest of us who got roped along unwillingly.  All the way back to 'triple the debt' Reagan.

      Hell, we can have a line item on our paycheck deductions for Medicare, why not our GI Joe action adventure toys and domestic surveillance/suppression also?
