salient points all, but in truth the Obama Administration will still be in power during and after the "intentional recession" and will use the resultant weakness induced by the recession to further move America toward permanent leftist positions. Some feel that this has been his ongoing goal throughout his first term and now that he has gained a second term he is set to initiate the final plan, blame the Republicans, and achieve his goal of Progressive domination.
With all due respect to your interpretation of economics, the government is the source of tax rates, national fiscal policy, and regulatory issue all of which directly affect the opportunity for the free market to develop wealth in America. All of those things are contributory to (or deleterious to) GNP and wealth. And while the government jobs that you seem to hold in low esteem may not produce a direct profit they do form the system by which we initiate and control our rules of law and commerce so that our citizens have reasonable opportunity to earn wealth, so it is reasonable to posit that they do indeed contribute to our GNP even if indirectly.

Nevada has no income tax, but it does have massive unemployment and i don't think that Boxer is any more egregious than Harry Reid. none the less I'd take Nevada over California any day.

History Lesson: Akio Toyoda is President of Toyota Motor Corporation. The company’s name was changed to Toyota for easier pronunciation way back in 1936. His great granddad, Sakichi Toyoda, was the founder of the company and the family still controls 2% of Toyota. None-the-less the company is named Toyota and not Toyoda although both names have their genesis in the Toyoda family.
