    Sure, cutting taxes, in some cases provides a short term economic benefit but a long term reduction in government revenue.

    Sorry, I don't debate with people on the undebatable list and it looks like you're right near the top.

    Besides, I'm sure I can find all your nonanswers in some other thread on that actual topic.

    You could redeem yourself by refuting my post with some evidence or we all just shake our heads and say "bless his heart".

    Sure, cutting taxes cause permanent revenue increases, since it causes expansion in the economy.

    That other things, like retarded government expansions, goof-ball regulations, and socialism in general spend money faster than it's coming in and cause economic contractions is what leads to long term loss of government revenue.

    Why people insist that the thing that's growing the economy and increasing government revenue is the thing causing revenue to shrink is an interesting example of what the psychologists call cranial rectitis.

    That's because there's nothing to debate.

    Anyone claiming that Bush could have done something to prevent 9-11 but refuses to specify is merely exercising his hot air generator. You have nothing to debate because you have nothing to say.

    What could have prevented 9-11 is if someone had taped Madeline Albright's mouth shut when the missile launch was ordered so the dumb broad couldn't warn Pakistan, and thus bin Laden, that loud visitors were coming.

    Killing bin Laden.

    That would have stopped 9-11.

    Not much else would have.

    Simple. He could have tightened airport security before 9/11 just like he did after 9/11. They were warned.
    that's nice.

    So the Bush Administration was warned that SOMEWHERE in the United States SOME terrorists were going to do something naughty, SOMEHOW.

    Explain how Bush could respond effectively to something a clearly stated as that.

    Explain how your Messiah could have fixed it, too.

    I think I've heard of that before. Are the symptoms overwhelmed sense of smell, muffled speech and difficulty hearing?

    You'll have to ask a socialist. The visible symptoms are a really awkward posture and a funny gait.
