    No, because I don't borrow money. I view defaulting as stealing.
    So you think Donald Trump, Henry Ford, Walt Disney and GM are all theives? They all went bankrupt.

Then you wonder why people buy gold? Sorry a dollar is not worth a dollar just because you say it is.
    Our country runs on debt.The only time that we had zero debt was On Jan. 8, 1835,when Andrew Jackson was prez. By 1837, we were headed into a depression that lasted six years before the economy began to grow again..Debt is good for a country,at least our founding fathers thought so.

Indeed, credit is the engine of macroeconomic events, and tea baggers for some reason don't think credit is good thing (despite that fact that it is the basis of modern capitalism and its wealth creation).
    I didn't say macroeconomics I said MICROECONOMICS - apparently you don't know anything about economics.

    Don't argue with people on topics you have no understanding of.

    No our country does NOT run on debt.......

    Do you have any concept on what makes currency valuable? Seriously??

    Saying "our country runs on debt" is one of the most delusional things I have ever heard in my life... You may as well say the typical family depends on credit cards (and that is somehow logical within itself).

    Funny how I get by without credit cards.

    So?

    That is common, 90% of businesses fail. That is why I'm disgusted by the labor unions. People and investors lose millions trying to build a business and the second one becomes successful the greedy progressive unions come running in talking about "fair share" yeah well sorry they didn't fail 10 times to FINALLY build a successful business - they didn't lose millions - no they extorted millions.

    yes i do but evidently you donít.Where do you think the money for our wars came from?Ask China how much interest were paying on the money that we borrowed for Iraq, Afghanistan.my war,Vietnam,was on borrowed money,WW2, borrowed money.

    Do you think we shouda saved up enough money before we declared war on Japan after they attacked Pearl Harbor? You're a ****ing delusional twit if you think that this country does not now,and hasn't since our revolution INTENTIONALLY.and at times striven to run on credit. At time its been a practice to run UP credit.AGAIN,INTENTIONALLY.

    Like i said in my other post, the only way that reps can win is by voter suppression, on the state level and that window is closing by the day/week.The republican party might as well change there name now...or possibly recycle an old name.Might want to check and see if the copyright for the Whig party is still available.

    Here would be a good motto for your new party, an old keepsake of the tea party. I believe i seen a early tea party member,all decked out with what looked like a revolutionary war hat,with teabags dangling from it and he was carrying a sign which had the following quote on it "IF REALITY DOESN'T SUPPORT OUR IDEOLOGY,THEN WE'LL INVENT OUR OWN REALITY".Might be a good motto for your new party when you get it off the ground.
    This is a great point. Republicans win when we suppress the illegal alien vote, the illegal felon vote, the illegal dead vote, the democratic party vote early and vote often vote...

    Sometimes even you stumble upon the truth.We cannot win elections against the massive fraud perpetrated by the union-supported democratic party.

    You are talking nonsense. Debt greases the gears of all modern economies, and is the preferred method of corporate financing (the global credit market is roughly twice the size of the global equity market in terms of value).

    Do you have any concept on what makes currency valuable? Seriously??
    I doubt you do.

    Funny how I get by without credit cards.
    What you do IRL is of no consequence to this discussion.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Two more things will help. We see more states becoming right to work states. That will strip the democratic party of massive amounts of laundered dollars. Second, more states will have voter photo ID laws so one will have to prove one's eligibility to vote. That is very bad news for one party.

    I would like to see one more thing. At every level in order to vote one must prove that one is a net taxpayer.

    If you want to vote in a local election prove you pay their taxes. If you want to vote at the state level prove you are a net taxpayer. And for the national level only those of us who actually pay should be able to vote. You no pay. You no play.
