I couldn't care less who is to blame for our economic woes. The republicans and democrats are one in the same. Spend spend spend, tax tax tax. Cut programs and entitlements? Nawh! Too worried about losing elections to do that. Fiscal conservatism had always been the key to prosperity. And choice and personal responsibility! Socialism works fine until you run out of other peoples money. When the producers stop producing and we all become takers we will be chained to the government. Just the way they(Obama regime) wants it to be!!

Remember this date...January 3, 2007....that is the date when the Democrats took control of both houses of congress and the beginning of the crisis we felt in 2009. Once they got the power, they used it. Everyone still blames Bush, and Bush had his failures, but Bush asked Congress over five times to regulate and investigate Fannie and Freddie because he was afraid should they fail, it would hurt the economy, but the Democrats would not have it....therefore, the mortgage crisis of the late part of 2008 and the throwing away of billions of dollars by Obama in 2009. Obama was a voting senator in January 2007, if he inherited anything from anyone, he inherited it from himself.

Agreed. Taxes are totally irrelevant if we don't cut government spending by about half. What do our Wise and Wonderful Leaders talk about? Tax rates. What do they totally ignore? Spending.

Why is it impossible to elect a representative who thinks bankruptcy is a bad thing for a nation?

Because the people don't matter to the politicians. They can mislead enough to get re-elected by voting the way the lobbyists want. That way they get the cash to campaign continuously and keep getting the "low information' votes from the sheeple. Until we stop re-electing 95-98% of the crooks, we will continue to have crooks running things.

We need a new foreign policy and we need to spend a lot less money.

That’s the message stock market is telling us.

It’s a message painted in big bold letters and we’d be wise to read it. 

We need a foreign policy that uses the proven lessons we learned from the Cold War; a policy that pares back our commitment of troops to combat operations.

We need a fiscal policy that we learned during the 30 years from the 1960s to 1990, when our economy only did well as we restrained government spending to an amount...
