You do realize that Hillary wants more than to be the democratic NOMINEE, don't you?

It's kind of a process. Maybe you've heard of primaries?

Just one example among many others. Post could go on for pages. Lucky you, that you're not one of those who could not survive without these "freebies" from Santa Claus.
It's also ignorant to believe that these people WANT freebies in place of working for a living.
A few? Sure, but we have those on the right also, don't we? People who have no problem using government roads, bridges, etc. but feel they shouldn't have to pay taxes.

Funny, I don't know of anyone arguing for zero taxes, Commander Strawman. But I do know several people who wantses their free health care.

I thought you were a republican in the 80's? Am I wrong?
Guess what? Reagan would not be nominated by this bunch of Tea Party extremists, at least not his second term. After all, he did compromise on taxes a number of times.
The GOP I grew up with did not sit back and do nothing during the worst economic crisis in our nation's history and force their own president to go to the opposition party to help solve it.

Horsecr@p on 50 levels.

I get it. You hate today's GOP. So go become a democrat already. It'll spare the rest of us the complaints.

The only difference between you and I is that I don't drink the Kool-Aid.
I don't blindly follow ever order from Grover & his Tea Party ilk.
My apologies if thinking for oneself is against GOP bylaws.

Which implies that I do just follow orders blindly. If you say so.

How were our finances doing in 2008?

We were $6 trillion less in debt, for starters.

Already done. The GOP resigned 4 years ago when Obama was elected. They spent the next 4 years sticking to archaic pledges in the face of a near depression and fought every attempt to right the ship, pretending that their answers were ordained from God and could not be compromised on.
As one of those resigning GOP senators said, the goal of the next 4 years is to remove Obama from office.
Well, another goal the GOP failed to achieve.

You really are a one trick pony, aren't you? As I said, it's like the other party doesn't actually control the Senate and the Presidency.

Get back to me when you're ready to discuss actual solutions.
