    This has nothing to do with my post that you quoted.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    I smell a trollolololol.
    I don't follow the conservative mindset thanks. That is not to say I don't agree with them here or there but I'm not conservative.

    No Obama is a liberal. He doesn't have any of the issues neocons have.

    And what exactly is up your ass? Are you a supporter of Bush or anal about the word neocon? Are you a neocon?

    Do you consider managing a department store, a restaurant or a grocery store as careers not worth pursuing?

    I'm in my sophomore year of college and I work full time as an assistant manager at a restaurant.... I can honestly say beyond a shadow of doubt that given my current wage, how hard I work every day, and the limited range of upward mobility that I have, it is not a career worth pursuing. I hope you were just being sarcastic but given your user name I somehow doubt you were.

    There has been more debt owed under BHO than any other President in American history, and that is not debatable. Recall this silliness? Obama Pitches Pay-as-you-go Plan for Congress - YouTube

    There aren't too any who feel that people were more successful in the depression of the 1930's than the 1950's. Yours is a unique position.

    Didn't say that. I said just being alive isn't success.
    It's a greater success than being dead.

    You said "Most people know a neocon is a liberal on social issues and very much into policing the world".

    Wouldn't that describe Barrack Obama? He is getting credit in fact for his recent successes in policing the world. In fact he's entering sovereign foreign states without Confessional approval to police the world.

    Maybe he's a liberal at heart but his policies have been very centrist, as he is a poor negotiator and has caved into the right

    There are many more factors in our level of debt than who the president currently is. Here are the major causation factors of the huge debt increase over the past decade:

    Two very expensive wars
    Ridiculous defense spending in general, we currently have 53,900 troops in Germany, 28,500 in South Korea, 32,800 in Japan
    Overspending on national security, there are way too many agencies and it is totally over bloated
    Bush tax cuts on the wealthy
    Low corporate tax rates
    Jobs being shipped overseas to increase corporate profits
    Combating the economic recession that was caused by financial deregulation
    Increased healthcare costs because insurance and pharmaceutical companies have too much power in D.C.
    Subsidies to companies who don't deserve them; Exxonmobil for instance

    Now I am not saying Obama has not contributed to these problems; he most certainly has, especially regarding the defense issues. However, the current Republican party is not addressing the vast majority of these problems, and is instead focusing on things like Obama's first two stimuluses.
