4/7/16, "The Nuclear Option-Reminder: 'Conservative' Bushes Expanded Government, Raised Taxes, Started Trillion-Dollar War," Breitbart, Charles Hurt
"In the past 28 years America has elected two presidents from the
“conservative” party, the one that claims to stand for lower taxes,
responsible spending and limited government
Both have been named Bush.
Under these two presidents your taxes have been raised and national
debt nearly doubled. The largest entitlement program in 40 years was
piled on top of a labyrinth of federal entitlement programs already
teetering on the verge of bankruptcy. One of the first acts of President
George W. Bush was to federalize education. He also launched a
billion-dollar war that was not paid for and greatly empowered the
federal government’s breadth and powers to monitor, probe
If any of the Founders could have imagined something so intrusive and
useless as the Transportation Security Administration, they surely
would have expanded the Fourth Amendment....Over these 28 years the “liberal” party has been even worse. Standing
athwart freedom at every turn, this party worships at the feet of an
all-powerful, all-seeing and tax-consuming big government that regulates
every tiny aspect of people’s lives and snuffs out personal or private
enterprise and innovation wherever it can.
All the while, members of the “conservative” party stand by twiddling
their thumbs as the formless leviathan grows bigger and bigger.
In some cases — such as the effort to obliterate America’s borders and grant amnesty to millions of lawbreakers — the “conservative” party
has actively helped craft and carry out the devilish designs. George W.
Bush proudly championed these goals.
This is what happens when you leave professional politicians in
charge for too long. They forget who they work for. Eventually, they
become slaves to maintaining their own grip on power. They start making
dirty little deals. A little graft here, a little lobbying there, wiggle
around some district lines, and pretty soon all the vigorous
backscratching turns into something else entirely that cannot be
described in a family newspaper.
This is what happens when you
leave professional politicians in power so long they begin to view
themselves as “experts.” An Assembly of Experts.
And after about
28 hugely disappointing years, somebody bigger and smarter than any of
them comes walking along and calls them out.
“You know, I’ve
always wanted to say this,” real estate developer Donald Trump told
Wisconsin voters this week. “I’ve never said this before with all the
talking we all do.
“All of these experts — ‘oh, we need an
expert’ — the experts are terrible,” Mr. Trump scoffed. “Look at the
mess we’re in with all these experts that we have. Look at the mess.
Look at the Middle East. If our presidents and our politicians went on
vacation for 365 days a year and went to the beach, we’d be in much
better shape right now in the Middle East.”
On this, Mr. Trump is
exactly right. It is why the Founders did not put an Assembly of
Experts in charge. They put people in charge. Even stupid people and
Because stupid people are never nearly as destructive as an Assembly of Experts."

So-called 'conservative' Bush presidents expanded government, raised taxes, started trillion dollar war, proudly championed erasing America's borders. Over these hugely disappointing 28 years, associated 'conservatives' and political 'experts' did nothing to stop any of it-Charles Hurt
