people who fuck up our country spending us into the debt of ass backwards china
the previous FOUR assholes elected to the office of the president of the united states have been spending my money plus buckets of imaginary money to pay off the other assholes who helped them get into office. both the republican party and the democratic party are filled almost entirely with apathetic, hypocritical assholes. It is treasonous to spend a country into debt! The best way to stop treasonous asshole spending is to execute traitors. The fewer assholes the better.
