I am primarily Libertarian in my political views and a strong fiscal conservative. Foreign policy is debatable.
The most important thing to look at, in my opinion, on the political landscape is the fact that we continuously spend more than we take in. We are broke and borrowing more. Not only is it difficult to pay it back, but I daresay we cannot pay it back.
This has been the worst form of child abuse. We are heaping mountains of debt on the next generations. Our children, grandchildren and great children will spend all of their lives trying to pay back what we borrowed to buy goodies now.
I think one solution out of many is to devalue the current dollar 1000 to 1, pay our debts with old dollars and only use new dollars.
