What would that have to do with Reagan era levels? Is that not what we were discussing?

Nope. If they meant "promise", they would have used "promised". It's pretty simple and I'm not letting you put words in their mouths.

You do realize it was a totally made up scenario by the OP right?

Nope. You got lost somewhere. Go re-read and get back to me.

I research the issues and find the truth. That way, it's much harder for politicians to manipulate me and my vote. Shouldn't we all be that way? Wouldn't that make this a better country? Wouldn't that make politicians more accountable to the electorate?

I'll quote a Dem elite on their voter base... "the stupidity of the American voter" - Gruber.
You forgot your and the part about telling everyone how many pension funds are invested in the stock market and how they therefore should worship at Wall St's altar, and then the again.

You are as much a believer in talking points as those you rail against.

Why are you being misleading? Furthermore, federal employees total numbers reached their highest under Reagan and state employees never recovered from the latest economic crisis.
State employees are still far higher today even if not as high as in 2008.

Right.... and did you understand the context? Informedconsent made a claim and I replied. Then you jumped in.

Quantify far higher today.

I don't have to. Are they higher or not? I was explaining why federal employment in part is lower.

So because "will" is in the definition of "promise" they are the same....

Why didn't his campaign page say "he will definitely do x,y,z."? Or why didn't he actually use the word "promise"....

Keep it coming, this is amusing how far you are going.
