    You still didn't expand.

    And what's wrong with college kids?
    Do you understand the age when pimples quit being much of an issue?
    How do you know the presumed intellect of someone?

    He's mad because he feels that other people make sweeping generalizations about his ideology, so he takes the higher road by making sweeping generalizations about the people making said sweeping generalizations.

    Right now the keyenesians have an insurmountable advantage. They are in a position to produce the government stats, then point to them to show how right they are.

    One example of this is how they managed to produce such a robust economy in the middle of WW2. Even with a huge chunk of our workforce fighting overseas, GDP skyrocketed.

    Of course when our brave soldiers came home and everyone was working again, GDP went way, way down. We should all be well aware of the major depression that happened in 1946. You've all heard about the depression of 1946, right? We were so worried about this depression that it generated a boom in population and a feeling of jubilation rarely seen since.

    But don't dare question the government numbers. It was a severe depression. GDP says so! War is good for the economy! Deficit spending is good too!

    Obama will pull us out of this, and if he doesn't, the brilliance of some other central planner will find a way. I hear Michael Bloomberg is a real smart planner. Anybody that disagrees with these types are simply insane! They are just a bunch of Paultards really.

    If they vote for nationalization, I will vote democrat! And no, I will have ZERO guilt about it.
    I dont understand this logic, why would you vote for the nationalization party over the quasi-nationalization party? Why dont you just vote third party?
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    don't be insane. That would be throwing your vote away.

    Of course the GDP will go up whenever we are engaged in war. Somebody makes money off of the weaponry we drop on the baddies.

    Because by voting for the quasi-national party, you reward them for going left. We only need one nationalization party, and I would rather the nationalization party hold all the power untill the quasi-party understands that they will NEVER win by moving left.
