The U.S. Congress has been under the control of the Democratic Party for nearly four years now. The entitlement programs, which are the biggest cause of the $13.7 trillion national debt, give us annual deficits now in the trillions, in addition to rapidly growing unfunded liabilities that now stand at $110 trillion. These are all programs of the Democratic Party, controlled by the progressives since the early 1900s. The progressives have also infected Republicans, and they have been recklessly spending for a while now.

We have solutions called the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. Each has been violated by both parties, and this is why we have the financial mess we are in.

We have a choice. We can restore constitutional government and the rule of law by electing many constitutional conservatives with this platform and holding them to that promise or let our country completely fall victim to the progressive movement, which has given us socialism.
