    Deficits are yearly, the debt is a long term problem.
    Greetings, Conservative.

    : Since experts have calculated that our $17 trillion dollar debt, which is growing by $10 million dollars a minute, puts this Country in a debt situation that has never before been seen in history, it's apparent that we cannot continue on this destructive path for much longer. Too many other countries are becoming alarmed, and are taking steps to protect themselves from our seeming inability to halt our descent to the bottom. So what's DC's response? Arrogantly keep spending, and ignore reality! Unbelievable! :

    That never was the point, of course a dollar spent by the govt. is going to get to the private sector, my point was the govt. spending never was the large percentage that you seem to believe it is and there are better sources of private sector revenue than the govt spending. Every dollar spent by the govt that it doesn't have is borrowed or printed thus adding to the debt and devaluing the dollar. This country wasn't built on a huge central govt. that Obama is creating and we currently have a 17 trillion dollar debt to prove it.

    You see, liberals don't get it because they think with their heart instead of their brain wanting to believe that the Federal govt. spending is compassionate spending when the reality is compassionate spending generates positive results and that isn't what the Federal govt is doing, rather they are creating dependence. Many liberals here are probably part of the group that doesn't pay any net Federal Income taxes thus aren't paying for the debt service required.

    It was precisely my point, which you quoted. And of course adding that I do not understand aspects of the GDP, kicking the door open for me to respond: school me, in essence. And we both know you dare not get into specifics, since I'll wipe the floor up with you. Ergo, more empty rhetoric, the refuge of abject losers in a debate.

    LOL, the specifics are Obama has added over 6.2 trillion dollars to the debt in less than 5 years and has no interest in cutting spending to address the problem. Even with that govt. spending and failure to put people back to work the GDP growth this year may even be in contraction showing that govt. spending isn't the answer, private sector growth is and Obama will never focus on that.

    "Obama has added over 6.2 trillion dollars " is not a specific. It's an aggregate number which borders on meaningless, without going into the specifics of what it bought and the economic impact of the spending, which would be getting into "specifics."

    Aggregate of all the spending and revenue generated during his term in office. Like all liberals it seems that debt only matters when it is a Republican creating it but when a Democrat creates it, it is called a worthy investment. Tell that specifically to the over 21 million Americans unemployed/under employed/discouraged that the debt and economic performance isn't specific.

    Correct; and of course, devoid of specifics.
