In 1980 is when Reagan took over. From then we've had Reagan eight years, Bush one 4 years Clinton 8 years and Bush two, 8 years, Obama 2 years.
Almost all of the deficits and government debt was created while a Republican held the White house and with Bush 2, he had the White House, The Congress for 6 years and the Supreme Court in his lap and managed to destroy America in multiple ways. In the meantime, because the Democrats seem like pussies, most of the nation is blaming Obama. How weird is that?
What's not understood about what happens when the Republicans lower taxes is that is taxation plus the interest. Lowering taxes means borrowing. Taxation is how the debts must be paid before the interest eats us alive. That can only happen with taxation from a thriving economy. That ain't happening and if the Republicans win this election, they will finish us off.
What seems to escape the Tea Party folks is they largely are made up of an age group that has the most to gain with Obama in office and if the Republicans have their way, they will be out in the cold with no Social Security, No Heath Care, they will be represented by ding bats and they will become part of the Neo Third World, which is what the rulers of the nation (Multinationals) are preparing us for by allowing a situation that will create enough debt in an economy that can never pay it back and the Peons, that's mostly us, will be working a Chinese style labor force. Everything we think we own, we will not own.
The Supreme Court really screwed us by making corporations people. That blows my mind. We will be chained to the wheel of industry with no hope left for the so-called, American dream.
The Liberals, Independents and especially Tea Party folks just don't get it that they have to get out and vote for the pussies because the snake show nuts on the right have no idea what it is they are supporting is their own demise along with the rest of us.
I'm old and remember being in a soup line in 1936 during the 1929 depression with my dad so we could eat. Many correctly point out that it wasn't until after WW2 that the depression ended. They are right. Guess what pulled us out? Roosevelt had big taxes on the rich because they had the most to gain. He set up public work projects and stimulated the economy with government spending. Then the war came along and what is it that happens in a war, government spending. So finally government spending brought us back and because we had so many resources, we created the worlds greatest most productive middle class. Also, the rich got richer in a non-destructive way.
This time it will be more difficult because the resurrection of America is no longer the plan. We have very little resources left, a huge debt and the exporting of or jobs overseas is designed to force us to compete while our lifestyles disappear.
We really have to get off our asses and stop the same old Internationalists from taking away our country. Those guys are working to screw us using what used to be a Republican conservative party but now are servants of the rulers.
Come on folks. think it out.
