AMERICA'S NATIONAL DEBT
TOPS $13,000,000,000,000;
DEBT PER TAXPAYER - $117,975;
US DEBT TO GDP RATIO - 90.3%


None of that includes unfunded liabilities, promises the federal government has made, in the form of social security, medicare and obamacare... among others, I'm sure.  Last figure I saw which included those was months ago; -$107,000,000,000,000.

And still no world wide depression.  But a nice try by the Republicans.  You guys almost had us there. 

 

Just think how much debt we would be in if the Republicans fools (I know that is redundant) were in power and they tried to balance the budget.  We would be in another one of their Great Depression.  Tax revenues would have dropped even more.  Who knows how large the deficit would be now.

Plus the out of work numbers would be through the roof.  At least under Obama, private sector jobs have been in the positive side for many months now. Under Bush, we were losing jobs at a frightening rate.

And this has been gone over ad nauseum with you, and you are yet to offer solid proof of your position.  That it is your position, if you will forgive me, is not proof.

I am not "attacking" you.  I asked you a question.  I asked you for proof of your position, and opined that this subject has been gone over endlessly, and no matter what other scenario's are provided you, you cling to this explanation.  So I am simply asking you to provide something concrete, for once, to support it.

The proof is that Hoover's attempt to balance the budget gave the world the Great Depression and then the outrages spending during WWII ended the Great Depression. 

 

Once you go back and change history then we can discuss that the above facts are not true.

Hoover increased taxes and he increased spending.  He also did a lot of other keynesian bullshit that fdr continued and expanded which turned the recession into the Great Depression.

Now you've gone and done it.  Get ready for a slew of posts on how you want America to fail, and how you want it to fail because you're a racist, LOL.  

By the way, I agree that we need to hit rock bottom.  It became clear to me quite awhile ago that disaster of some sort is the only way a huge segment of the population is going to wake up.

These are the ones who call themselves "patriots" and belong to tea parties.  They are quite simply the most Un-American, selfish and amoral folks around.

Yup, that's me... selfish.  No doubt that when everything does finally collapse under the weight of keynsian idiocy, I'll be blamed for that, too.

That's fine just so long as the keynsian lunatics are gone... proven to be the dumbfucks we've been saying they are for all these years.

In the time it's taken me to write this, you keynsian bastards have spent over 14 million dollars of money you do not have, money you expect your children and grandchildren to repay.

Yup, I'm the selfish one.  I'm the greedy one.

They defend keynes all the time.  Intergenerational debt is a fundamental principle of keynes's crackpot theories...  if they believe keynes's theories then they believe in intergenerational debt, don't they?  I'm just so curious as to how they justify to themselves what they are participating in.

You tell them to stop electing fools like Reagan, Bush and Bush who did not pay down the debt during the boom times.  How come you always forget that part?

 

And seeing that with Keynesian economics the boom times last longer then we should be running a huge surplus by now.   The talk of a national debt should be obsolete.

 

Do not attack the plan when you only use step one of the plan.

Won't any of the keynesian true believers answer the question?  What sort of ethics, morality or even compassion allows you to enslave children and people not even born yet via inter-generational debt?

 

You tell them to stop electing fools like Reagan, Bush and Bush who did not pay down the debt during the boom times.  How come you always forget that part?

 

And seeing that with Keynesian economics the boom times last longer then we should be running a huge surplus by now.   The talk of a national debt should be obsolete.

 

Do not attack the plan when you only use step one of the plain.


So the actual ethical, moral and compassion angle of the question remains unanswered.

Reagan, Bush 1 & 2 also followed keynesian dogma, I have not forgotten that... I have also not forgotten that it is congress who spends money, not presidents.
Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve.” ― H.L. Mencken
