    Is this the change they promised??? LOL. Never believe Democrats or Republicans. All they can do is lie and cheat the voters.

    WASHINGTON - After promising unprecedented openness regarding Congress' pork barrel practices, House Democrats are moving in the opposite direction as they draw up spending bills for the upcoming budget year.

    Democrats are sidestepping rules approved their first day in power in January to clearly identify "earmarks" — lawmakers' requests for specific projects and contracts for their states — in documents that accompany spending bills.

    The neo-con Republicans were the worst at pork barrel spending recently. I just hope these Democrats understand that there are a lot of us, conservatives and liberals, who were brought up that unless we are absolutely in a serious crisis, one doesn't spend more than what one takes in. Anything more is obviously placing our Nation's finances into the claws of world financing interests that run counter to our interests.

    Well, nobody's arguing that, but that's just because they were in charge. The Democrats are proving that they're going to be little different though. And they weren't any different prior to the Republicans gaining control in '94.

    Time to wake up, people. If you want real change you're going to have to vote for a third party. STOP VOTING FOR DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS.
