More examples of failing Keynesian economics. How about trying something different?

Sorry, but I can't get the link to post properly. However, go to www.governmentspending.com & put in the value for % government spending of GDP for the years 1792-2015 & check out the graph yourself.

Except during the Civil War when the government (Federal, State & Local) spent about 10% of the nation's GDP, the government spent only about 2-4% of GDP until the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank & the Income Tax in 1913. Limiting government's share of the GDP to 17% is too high, but it would be a good first step. http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/spending_chart_1792_2015USp_16s2li011mcn_F0f
Singapore is ranked #2 in Economic Freedom for 2014 with a 89.4 (#1 is Hong Kong with a 90.1). USA is now ranked #12 with a 75.5. World average = 60.3.
Correct & never trust a Democrat to be anything other than pro-abortion.
"Teacher to Student: If You Don't Support Gay Marriage, Drop My Class" -Typical of liberal intolerance.
Gold is a storage form of wealth & its value will never fall to zero. Over the last 1000 years there have been 600 fiat currencies that have collapsed. The fact that all currencies world-wide are now fiat (for the first time in the history of the world) does not mean that these fiat currencies will never collapse (like the last 600 currencies have done already). So which do you trust more: gold or fiat currency? In either case, it would be good to hedge your bet with some of the other.
"I believe progress has to be made and the government is not the answer for progress." -Therein is the key to possible GOP success or failure. The GOP will succeed if it reforms itself into a party for a smaller government, with more freedoms & opportunity which will encourage citizens to be self reliant in a more efficient economy with lower taxes & less government red tape. Instead, I see the Establishment GOP still clinging on to the misguided notion that you need more & bigger government as the answer to every problem. This only ends up generating more people on government dependence & a weaker economy because of high taxes & misallocation of resources.
"Obamacare Architect: Yeah, We Lied to The "Stupid" American People to Get It Passed" -He was correct, the majority of American voters are stupid. Only now that ObamaCare is kicking into effect are the lies more obvious and there was a minor voter revolt against the Democrats this election cycle. Unfortunately, Establishment Republicans (like Mitch McConnell) still do not want to try & repeal the law, besides allowing the Democrats to get away with other nonsense.
