    Positive job and GDP growth is not horrible.

    Balance the budget tomorrow and the U.S. goes into a deeper recession than in 2009. This is not an opinion, it is simply a matter of fact.

    We haven't progressed at all since the recession ended in 2009, in spite of the more than $800 billion stimulus Obama sold us.

    My God, how can you possibly see Obama's economic policies as anything but the miserable failure they are?

    How was the U.S. growing at a real rate of 3.1% in Q3 2012?

    WTF are you talking about? I never stated the economy is doing great. You stated the numbers are horrible; i was simply correcting you.

    Sure. Yet you continue (falsely i might add) to reply as though the U.S. economy is in the ****ter. When i provide concrete evidence that shows this is NOT the case, you continue to deflect. Fiscal deficits are a positive for economic growth, given our current environment. Nothing you have stated negates this fact.

    Actually, they are not doing this in Europe.

    What I mean by "reduce the size, scope and power" of the government means:

    1. Reduce government spending drastically.
    2. Cut or eliminate Departments and Agencies.
    3. Reduce the regulatory burden placed on the country by the federal government.
    4. Totally reworking the tax code...removing all social and behavior inducing provisions. It's okay to have a progressive system...but get rid of all deductions, credits, etc. Reduce or increase the percentages to generate the needed revenue to pay for government spending. This should be done after the above three items.

    But...as I said...getting the government to reduce itself won't easily happen.
