how will we NOT have to resort back to a conservative platform of cutting and balancing the budget?

This is what amazes me about you liberals. You stand here applauding the re-election of a President who's own budgets show record $1T+ deficits, which are non substainable in the long run.

The only alternative would be to resort from spending, to cutting, and this would include safety nets.

Laugh now, but when we cant just create new debt, and we're forced to make cuts, see who's laughing then.. I'll be one of them standing here watching you liberals moan and cry..

Cry me a river. It is idiocy of the right wing that we're talking trillion dollar deficits now. This is what you get, following support and demand for destructive policies, only so you can push your personal agenda.

So IF and WHEN the safety nets are cut, you honestly believe it will ONLY be liberals complaining? By your reasoning ONLY LIBERALS use these safety nets?

Tell me, where was Willard suppose to get the money to fund his 2T dollard defense increase? How as Willard going to fund the tax cuts? Yes I for one am VERY happy about the results. As far as crying about safety net cuts, NOPE, it is what it is.

Ahh, so now its the right wingers to blame because we're talking trillion dollar deficits.. We should just do it, while people like myself, keep our mouth shut.

Obama holds no blame in signing the bills, or writing legislations, that increase the debt, does he? Obamacare, estimated $2T+ debt increase, stimulus bill, another $1T, porkulus bill, another $500B,

but its always someone elses fault.

Its people like you that pushed me away from the Democratic Party..

Nah, we will implement liberal policies like raising taxes to where they need to be to support our country, and especially to care for the elderly and to provide a sensible safety net, as well as environmental protection,research and development, education, infrastructure, a sensibly strong military, etc. Tax rates should be indexed to GDP and demographic needs. Sometimes we have more older folks, like now. That is not a time to gut the system. Tax cuts for billionaires will have to get the heave ho. Grover Norquist can move to Somalia.

Germany, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, Canada and a bunch of other countries are far left of what liberals want, and they are not going bankrupt.

There was no $2T defense increase under Romney, it was actually a CUT IN THE GROWTH RATE.

Tax cuts, yes, grow the economy, just like Clinton did. but you guys pretend thats a foreign concept.. I guess under Obama it is, but you voted for the dumb ass..

You could confiscate the wealth of the rich and only fund the government for about 30 days, and thats not income, thats WEALTH. Your suggestion about taxing teh "rich", is utterly stupidity since they dont hold enough income to do so..

Most of those countries dont hold anywhere close to the amount of debt we have. This isnt about left vs right, this is about NOT HAVING ENOUGH MONEY to cover the debt load.
