    BS.

    Reaganomics’ Failure

    But this debt crisis did not originate with George W. Bush. It can be traced back primarily to President Reagan, who arrived in the White House in 1981 with fanciful notions about restoring America’s economic vitality through massive tax cuts for the wealthy, a strategy called “supply-side” by its admirers and “trickle-down” by its critics.

    Reagan’s tax cuts brought a rapid ballooning of the federal debt, which was $934 billion in January 1981 when Reagan took office. When he departed in January 1989, the debt had jumped to $2.7 trillion, a three-fold increase. And the consequences of Reagan’s reckless tax-cutting continued to build under his successor, George H.W. Bush, who left office in January 1993 with a national debt of $4.2 trillion, more than a four-fold increase since the arrival of Republican-dominated governance in 1981.

    Today is the July 4, a Celebration of our Independence where we declared our independence from British rule. People died to give us the right of choice and that includes the right to make the wrong one. Liberals want everyone to believe as they do and thus tries to legislate personal responsibility issues. When are you going to learn that doesn't work?

    They died for the right to go bankrupt if you get sick? I don't think so and your saying that is disrespectful.

    Oooo, touchy. Exactly what kind of "educating" do you do (don't bother)? Here's what happened in 2006: the country was sick of the Bush/Cheney Catastrophe of lies and crimes (and the worst was yet to come). Then the additional dem blowout of 2008 happened and teabaggers got their racism ginned up to get white supremacists out to the polls in droves in 2010. Redistricting in red states after the 2010 census then made it pretty much impossible for anyone but a republican to get elected in those states controlled by republican governors and legislatures. Educate that.

    Tell me exactly do you think it is the role of the Federal Govt. to create a profit? Do you understand that creating a 1.7 trillion dollar debt that doubled the U.S. economy and created 17 million jobs wasn't a manageable debt? You really don't understand that 1.7 trillion dollars to create a 2.8 trillion dollar increase in economic growth is better than creating a 7.6 trillion dollar debt and growing the economy 2.5 trillion dollars. In other worlds please explain the difference between a 2.6 trillion dollar debt(Debt Reagan left the Country with) on a 5.6 trillion dollar economy vs a 18.2 trillion dollar debt(Debt today) on a 17.5 trillion dollar economy?

    You can whine and complain all you want about Reaganomics but the actual results make you look foolish. Why else would liberal bloggers and the liberal elite spend so much time and energy demonizing it?

    Yes this is true as well.

    So you are lying to people to fit your narrative. Whats new?
    I also posted the following:

    Turnout for Federal Elections:

    National Voter Turnout in Federal Elections: 1960

    You will notice that turnout for midterm elections is consistently lower than for presidential election years. Typically the incumbent president's party does poorly in midterms, particularly midterms in their second term. This is because the opposition party's voters are more motivated to come out and vote than the incumbent party's voters. This is also why midterm election results are not usually very predictive of the following presidential election year election when the electorate will be much larger and both sides are typically motivated to get out and vote.

    All of which is true. Calling people liars for no reason, as you did, is douchebag thing to do. Do you do this in normal life? If so you probably should see a therapist. Otherwise you are going to have a lot of difficulty maintaining any sort of relationship with friends and spouses.
