Which Party is the "Party of Deficits?"

There are many delusional Democrats who frantically play the rich vs. poor game, labeling Republicans as "the rich" while appealing to the dependent class to desperately cling to power. In their fanatical zeal, such people often make absurd assertions about which political party is responsible for the sorry state of our nation today. The following exchange I had through comments to a Letter-to-the-Editor clearly identifies which party is really the "Party of Deficits."

An excerpt from an online comment to a Letter-to-the-Editor by some poor soul calling himself "truthbetold2" at the tcpalm.com website:

WE NEED TO ASK CLINTON HOW BALANCED THE BUDGET AFTER THE REAGANOMIC CATASTROPHE BROUGHT US TO OUR FIRST TRILLION DOLLAR DEFECIT...

Note the poor grammar and spelling, an indication of a poorly-educated, somewhat deranged individual.

I posted a reply online to that comment, which reply forms the basis for this commentary.

In reply to "truthbetold2" (and any others suffering similar delusions):

Childish hogwash!

The record is clear, there is no question which party has earned the label: "The Party of Deficits!"

It's time that apologists for the Democratic Party accepted responsibility for the mess they've created.

Notes: 

If there is a great companion to the quote attributed to Franklin, "We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid," it is one attributed to John Wayne: "Life is tough, it's even tougher if you're stupid."


Biography - Bob Webster

Bob Webster, a descendant of Daniel Webster's father and early American patriot, Ebenezer Webster, has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for every high school student so they can understand the dangers of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.

A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
