But, but, but...... It's the presses fault.... Or wait... TRUMP'S FAULT!!!

Actually, it is Trump's fault. He won and drove them all in-PHUCKING-sane. Crime is good. Illegal border crossing is good. Eliminating tests is good. Inflation is good. Dudes in dresses raping girls in a girls bathroom is good.

In the latest sign of why he’s been such a crashing failure, President Joe Biden just fell back on a comfortable lie as he tried to rally Democrats who face huge losses in next year’s elections.

In his keynote speech at the Democratic National Committee’s lavish holiday party Tuesday, the prez sneered: “We know what we’re for. But Republicans don’t seem to be for anything. Name me something they are for — they’re against everything.”

In fact, Republicans just let Democrats boost the federal debt limit without even forcing the party that controls Congress to face some embarrassing roll-call votes. And they helped pass the infrastructure bill, Biden’s only victory in months.

Yes, they’ve opposed Biden’s drives to federalize elections, further goose inflation by spending billions of dollars on progressive entitlements and ram through Green New Deal remaking of the US economy. And they’ve fought against peddling identity politics and COVID hysteria.

But that’s what a principled opposition does. (And, by the way, it’s two Democrats, Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, who’ve blocked his insane Build Back Better spending spree.)

Look: The nation was poised for a rapid recovery as Biden took office, with vaccines already rolling out. All the new president had to do was deliver on his vow to make beating COVID his overriding priority.

But he put that fight on autopilot. The result: Soon after his DNC remarks, the nation passed 800,000 deaths from the virus, the most of any nation — with more than half of them on his watch, despite the vaccines developed at warp speed under his predecessor.

Instead of focusing on COVID, Biden devoted all his energies to using the pandemic as the pretext for a vast spending spree.

He pushed through a huge “COVID relief” law that discouraged work and dumped cash on Democratic priorities, then turned to Build Back — a $6 trillion-plus effort to enact the AOC-Bernie Sanders agenda of turning America socialist.

Among the things Republicans believe in is that often the best thing the government can do is get out of the way: empower people to decide and work for what’s best for themselves.

That Biden doesn’t understand or even recognize that idea has a lot to do with the nation’s current woes, including inflation unknown since the 1970s.

It’s also why his party is looking at a ginormous shellacking come November.

Good article that hits the mark.

Republicans ARE FOR limited government at the federal level. It's that simple.

Republicans ARE FOR the priorities that should be reserved for the federal government, such as border control, national security, and currency stability.

I differ with most Republicans in that I do not support the idea of spending this much on defense. In that regard I did like Trump for at least taking a few baby steps in getting other countries to pay more for their defense. On most other issues I can align with Republicans, but I do support public money funding energy research.

One big change I would make has to do with the prison population. They would not be sitting in cells consuming the nation's wealth. They would be on work details for infrastructure. We would teach them the value of work, and actually pay back a debt to society, rather than consume from society. And yes, the first step is a return to "law and order." Toss Democrats from local government, and allow states the right to ball and chain.

No problem with any of those policy positions. Although the left will shit a brick on the idea of "FORCED LABOR"....

Limited Govt my ass, NO Govt. They "stand for nothing, do nothing" and refuse to pay the bills they racked up in the last four years when they held power. Please get it right.

Of course you pay them but a good chunk goes towards repatriation for their victims and supporting their families on the outside. The real issue with inmates coming out of prison is they have zero work skills. They have a couple strikes against themselves at least give them some skills they can sell.

This. Look, America is about values in tension with each other - liberty, equality, limited government, etc. At the end of the day our polity is a debate over the weighting of those values and always has been. So yeah, both sides are ultimately for something, it’s the politics that communicates the against stuff.
