Oh, this 'person' posted this on a friend's FB wall regarding purchasing power [View all]

"What kills purchasing power more than anything is inflation (the same amount of money buys less). What causes inflation is the devaluing of our currency. What causes that is the over-spending and then the borrowing and printing (like what this most recent fight was all about). And all this is what furthers the gap between rich and poor. Which is why I am a conservative."

I don't have to show up to every fight, but this smacks of 'moral high ground while standing on a heap of bullshit'.
