    My last statement? Considering they both have business models that function just fine there is nothing to defend.

    If you want to be uptight about what YOU have decided to provide for me and act like I somehow need to do more for you because of what YOU decided to do for me all on your own, you need to check yourself real quick. Same goes for Obama frankly.

    If I need a job done there are people willing to do that job and I can hire them for that exact purpose. Considering that everything you mentioned would easily be provided for me as businessmen would find purpose in the work all I would have to do is pay them if I used their service.

    You like Obama really have no idea how much works judging by the ramblings you go on about.

    Government uses the tax revenues it gets from individuals and businesses and builds infrastructure used by individuals and businesses.

    Why would Obama need to finger-wag at business owners in particular?

    Ahh yes, when logic, reason and fact fail then use the ol sucker punch ad hominem attack as a last resort. It would be amusing if wasn't so predictable.

    You both make claims government isn't needed to build roads or put out fires and that these services would be better with out government. This ignores a lot of histroy as to what has actually happened, but I ask that you support your claim. This is nto unreasonable.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You failed when you resorted to an ad hominem attack.

    You fail in realizing I never mentioned quality, but if a rational economic model existed and it does and did. Its up to opinion if it better or worse as it depends on what qualifies as better or worse.

    As for me, I find a rational system of mutual exchange between willing members superior on all fronts. You find government control in services you decide important better, but you my friend are a socialist, so that is to be expected.

    Your liberal lean is very funny though, my planned economy friend.

    You do not announce my failure, only your escape.
