    What you're trying to demonstrate is the simple thesis which holds: THERE ARE NO LEFTIST AMERICANS.

    This of course resting upon the immutable natural principle which requires it one can-NOT simultaneously adhere to the thesis and the antithesis. Thus given that Left-think rejects the principles which define America, they cannot legitimately claim to BE Americans.

    Well OF COURSE YOU CAN!

    It's just that in so doing, you undermine the currency held by your neighbors, thus undermining their means to exercise their rights to exchange the value they earned and possess as a function of their efforts in producing it.

    Therefore ya can't do so on a morally sound basis… thus providing that you should not. As to do so, you fail to bear the responsibilities that sustain your own rights. Which means that when ya print money, ya forfeit your rights.

    But, yes… YOU CAN! But it's CRAZY expensive.

    so a reduction in the deficit is a surplus? I will take a surplus period as well regardless of who the President is. That isn't going to happen with Obama who proposed a 3.77 trillion dollar budget.

    Socialism is a logically invalid, thus an intellectually unsound fiscal concept. Therefore socialist policy will not result in sound fiscal results. The US economy has suffered the decaying effects of socialist reasoning for decades and, over the last 6 years the most recent socialist experiment has ONCE AGAIN PROVEN: Socialism SUCKS!

    Now if you need to organize that into a circle, on the hopes that by virtue of your new arrangement that such invalidates the argument, well that's fine with me… I'll just point out that it was your reasoning that invalidated it, which given your socialist nature, it follows that such would be the case.

    Now if you'd like to show a socialist policy which you feel could potentially result in fiscal viability, I'd love to hear all about it.

    And here's me, wishing YOU, the VERY BEST of luck in getting that done.

    You're quite right that it doesn't work, never has anywhere it's been tried.
    I suppose what we endure is more fascist than socialist. How much of the means of production does the government have to own before we get your approval to call our centrally planned economy socialist? The trend continues in the wrong direction.

    During the campaign, neither candidate even suggested that the deficit could be reduced that much so quickly.
    So what? The debt is what matters, and it is still increasing. The problem with government is not that it has deficits, but that it spends so much money. As long as spending is increasing, it doesn't really matter how big the deficit is.

    likening Obama to Hitler ... cute ... but I must say that I take great pleasure in knowing that every day you have to confront the reality that Barack H. Obama is the President of the United States of America and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States of America and he is your president ...
