“Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It's way too early for me to start paying attention about the 2016 presidential elections but Scott Walker must be polling really, really well.
All I see out of the New York Times and Washington Post is hit piece after hit piece. Just earlier today I was reading a hit piece by the Post about him not attacking Guiliani over Guliani's comments.
You do realize that we have had a federal debt every year except from 1835-1837 don't you? You know what happened in 1837? We went into a depression.
People have been complaining about the federal debt every year that it has existed, claiming that we are just "kicking the can down the road". Imagine that, 200 years ago people were complaining about the same things we complain about today - human nature, and the lack of understanding of how our economic system works, never changes.
Our odd way of creating money is by borrowing it into existence. If every penny of debt in the country was repaid today (which is actually impossible), there would be no more US dollars.
We now have a service economy. So trickle down no long works. Best examples of this are Wisconsin and Kansas and Louisiana. All 3 states have cut taxes to the bone, and all 3 have serious money problems. Even an oil producing state like LA is looking at some serious deficits.
Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
