"Most of our debt in the future comes from our entitlement programs. " 

He said that. Isn't that what you guys say? Why don't you just vote him then?

Fuck off.

Most people here might agree with paul ryan on 1 or 2 things but not on all things. I personally on vote for candidates that consistently hold most of my views. Paul ryan doesn't.

To Whom It May Concern:

Clayton's average point per post is 17.73, whereas greenbabe's average is 58.82.

Therefore, greenbabe contributes more value to the community than Clayton.

Interesting. Who's Paul Ryan? What else did he say?

greenbabe - can you find a single person that says most our future debt isnt from entitlement programs?  our future entitlement debt is multiple times over the entire world's GDP combined.

greenbabe - Once and for all, just read this link I send you and reply to me right after you read it so I know you're not dodging the question:

This isn't true as stated.

This is according to a "points" system (which has been critiqued before on these grounds), which adds a fixed amount of points merely for posting. Only in this manner can it be said that greenbabe contributes more "value" (really, it's "points") to the community than Clayton- but it's per post.

In terms of intellectual coherence, analysis, thoughtful conversation, and sheer volume of output (in the number of posts as well as the amount of writing per post) Clayton's total contributions qualitatively and quantitatively dwarf the attempts at "contribution" thus far posted by greenbabe.

Paul Ryan said that. We all need to vote for him!

Corporate welfare is much larger than social welfare. Ignore the vulgar libertarians.
