Rep. Thomas Massie: 'Republicans Want to Spend More Money Just as Much as Democrats Do.':
(http://reason.com/reasontv/2016/05/11/thomas-massie-at-reason-weekend-2016)


"Everyone tries to label me in Congress and they have a hard time doing it," Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie said in his recent speech at Reason Weekend 2016.

An electric-car-driving Republican, this "crunchy con" even lives off the grid with the help of solar panels. "Some people say 'libertarian,' I like 'constitutional conservative'...some say 'Tea Party'—the names just keep getting worse from there."

Massie's favorite moniker: "That one Republican who never would vote for John Boehner."

At Reason Weekend, the annual donor event for the nonprofit that publishes this website, which was held in Philadelphia this year, Massie riffed on a wide range of topics, including his four years on the Hill, the plot to kick out former House Speaker Boehner, the shocking realization that some of his supporters are pro-Trump, and the military's failed attempts at controlling opium production in Afghanistan.

Yet he wishes for people to rally around Donald Trump, a progressive republican who'll add another ten trillion in debt.

There is no other way. You do not want to upset the economy by reducing the government spending. Think about the millions without jobs. We need to keep manufacturing weapons. Have a heart! :D
