Some good advice from 2,000 years ago

“The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome becomes bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” Marcus Tullius Cicero, 55 BC

Obviously, our current political elite has not studied history, or studied the wrong history.

Yet the dems who have been in control of congress since 2007 and a large majority of the yrs since 1921 just keep on spending and making government bigger and giving money away to other contries. The dems only answer is to blame someone else.
