The Democrats spent 6 trillion dollars on social programs that did little more than keep people in a state of dependency. But they are opposed to spending a small fraction of that amount to protect this nation. We must engage the enemy and destroy them regardless of the cost. Drawing them to a location far removed from our shores was a brilliant strategy.

Yes but paying for it is a valid question. Estimates put the cost of this war at $42,000 per family. Granted, the Democrats are put into a position of having to pay for this, but this was at the Democrats request, in fact they cheered when they took over responsibility for it.

Well they now have the wallet, they want their trillion dollar pork projects, and then they want a pass at the war bills. I for one am not willing to give anyone a pass that runs for Congress. This after all is one of the jobs they asked for.

To answer your question: "How will the Republicans pay for the war?'

The war will continue until the sitting government decides to fight the towel heads on the american turf. Until that time, the Democrats or Republicans will go the the Federal Reserve (operated by the Rochefeller family since Woodrow Wilson put them in power) and have them print up the needed money. At a certain point in time the economy will adjust itself to 'Real Value' with durable goods and commodities just as it did in the past 60 days..when the dollar devalued in value against other currencies throughout the world.

In the future, when the sitting government decides to fight the towel heads here on the american turf, we will be forced to take up arms and fight or be beheaded by the infidels.

At that time, we will be forced to become more politically correct.

.

Typically, you still ignore the point of this thread. As I've stated, the Republicans toild us Iraqi oil revenues would pay for the war and the cost would be less than $100B. Two points you apparently have no explanation for the Republicans failing miserably to live up to so you whine about Democrats instead.

It's a VERY SIMPLE question and whining about any other party IS NOT an answer:

WHY can't the Republicans take responsibility for living up to their word? Their failure to do so has NOTHING to do with anyone else.


And please save you're time if your only reply is whining about anyone other than the Republicans getting a pass, THAT's not an answer to the VERY SIMPLE question.

Congress controls the pursestrings of government; the House of Representatives appropriates all funding. The Houses of Congress are both controlled by the Democrats. Thus, your very simple question should be directed to the parrt responsible, in particular their leader Mrs. Pelosi, who is the Speaker of the House.

With power comes responsibility.

To paraphrase an advertising slogan from thirty years ago:

"You asked for it: You got it! Pe-lo-si!"

The Republicans CAN NOT PAY for it because they do not controll the check book. This is not whining, its simply a fact that you seem to be ignoring..

I'm done going in circles with you because until you propose a solution to give the checkbook back to the republicans, how the Republicans will pay for it, is a stupid question since its impossible for them to pay for it since they do not have control of the budgets..

The checkbook has nothing to do with it. The question is WHY is the administration not pursuing their claim of oil revenues paying for the war? Exactly WHAT has been done to achieve that stated goal? Looks like nothing to me. THAT promised scenario has NOTHING to do with Congress writing a check but I guess you toe the party line, when you can't live up to your word blame somebody else.

So WHY should Congress have to write any check when BushWorld told us the war would pay for itself?

Congress has nothing to do with the administration saying the war would pay for itself through Iraqi oil revenues. The question I continue to ask with no response other than "blame the Democrats" amounts to why should anyone have any faith in an an adminstration that fails so miserably in living up to its word?

Just yet another fabrication by the administration. Oh no, sorry I forgot...we were never told any lies.

It would be nice as you allude to for any of the War supporters to actually provide a constructive proposal on how this war without apparent end should be paid for...guess that is asking for too much...

Without just trying to blame the War now on Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid...

1. Do we go after Iraq and demand oil concessions...or would this just anger the natives and not help since the government does not seem to be effective at all in the first place?

2. Do we raise taxes domestically? Impact of this on the coming recession?

3. Is there some other plan/option that has not been considered? If we don't have a plan, then when do we reach the financial limit and decide to bring the troops home? $2 Trillion dollars? $3 Trillion? Is there a limit?
