Irish born political theorist, philosopher and statesman Edmund Burke (1729-1797) said society is "a patnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born." Mitt Romney, responding to moderator Jim Lehrer's question in the first presidential debate about the federal debt and deficit replied, "I think it's not just an economic issue, I think it's a moral issue. I think it's frankly not moral for my generation to to keep spending massively more than we take in, knowing those burdens are going to be passed on to the next generation, and they're going to be paying the interest and principal all their lives. And the amount of debt that we're adding, at a trillion a year, is simply not moral". A moral president or presidential candidate - how novel. President Obama and his administration have lied about the murder of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi, about the Fast and Furious operation to discredit law abiding gun dealers, and about the cost of Obamacare. His economic policy has been to spend far more than the federal government takes in in tax revenues. He has mortgaged our children's and grandchildren's futures. A family of four has $160,000 of federal debt and only one in two families pay income tax so double the impact on taxpaying families to $320,000. How refreshing it is to have a candidate recognize the outrageous deficit spending for what ii is-immoral. See ya 'round the campus.
