Look at what happened north of our border. Canada's economy was once anemic with a weak currency. The voted in a conservative (Stephen Harper) and now it's business as usual. He did by controlling spending, lowering taxes, and modifying regulations so businesses would have less burden. Perhaps we should model ourselves with theirs. Our debt is now 61% of GDP. Canadas is aout 36% and we have the highest corporate tax rate of all industrialized countries.....over 39% and your guy wants to raise it higher. Now would you like to re-think who the wackos really are?
