Oh really?  Have you seen one libtard Democrat leader stop flying jets to cut down on pollution?

Straight to deflection and irrelevant statements. Typical.

Im not going to disagree with you that both parties has screwed us over with tax cuts, wars, and entitlement funding.   We are going to pay a huge price in the not too distant future.  But all these things makes the new green deal spending not possible.

It is not both parties equally. It is overwhelmingly one party. 

 

Democrats have passed things like Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security. And they have more or less appropriately budgeted for them. Even Obamacare cut the budget deficit over the long term.

 

Republicans are the ones that overwhelmingly run on cutting federal revenues but then don’t bother trying to balance the budget.

They have not budgeted the entitlements.  And they all voted for the Afghan and Iraq wars, so they clearly are complicit on those.  I will give you the one on the Republicans running on budget balance and doing just the opposite.   

 

You also fail to acknowledge that it was Republicans that forced reduced spending when Clinton and Obama were in office.  Democrats do not do the same when Republicans are in office.

You are the dumbass that claimed typical conservatives were selfish.  And i pointed out what a stupid statement that was, as selfishness runs in both parties.

They have absolutely budgeted for entitlements. They wouldn’t still exist decades later if they hadn’t. 

 

As for the Iraq war, they only voted to give Bush war powers. That was bad enough and they deserve a minority of the blame, but Dubya was the commander in Chief with a GOP Congress and the mismanagement of Iraq was overwhelmingly on them.

Clinton increased taxes and cut military spending thanks to a Democratic Congress. So no, I don’t give Republicans credit.

 

If Republicans deserved any credit for being able to balance a budget then they wouldn’t have fucked it up multiple times when they had total control under both Dubya and Trump.

I wouldnt have minded the tax cuts if offset by reduced spending.  Republicans screwed the pooch big time on this.

On this, we agree.  Low taxes are good in theory but not when the deficit is out of control, the economy is already booming, and Washington has become so deadlocked that the only way to pass legislation is to throw something in there for everyone without worrying about the cost because it's all borrowed money anyway.

I'm not claiming anything.  It is a factual statement.  One which you prove true everyday. And you didn't counter it at all.

Not sure if conservatives are more selfish on average, but there is some research out there that suggests they're more afraid.

 

I remember a study a while back, where a computer was able to accurately predict whether someone was liberal or conservative by their brain response to images of someone that appeared to be getting hurt.

 

Liberals felt more empathy while conservatives felt fear.

Selfishness is universal.  Some are more self focused than others, but just pure nonsense to state one side of the political spectrum is worse than the other.  

 

Lack of empathy is just one of many subsets of sefish attitudes.  Generosity is found to be more on the conservitive side.

Conservatives think selfishness is universal because conservatives are universally selfish...

Let’s see that scientific study then.

BULLSHIT. Conservatism at its core philosophy is one of empowering personal ownership. Ideologically, that is counter to the concept of Generosity.

You cant be fucking serious. Deficits under the Obama administration are the largest of any administration by far. The only time the government has been fiscally responsible in modern history is the turn of the millennia and that was short lived.

Why didn't you ask for the study that says libs have more empathy?   Answer: you are a dumbass libtard that lives in a hole filled with leftist propaganda.
