    Red herring. Why are you advocating they not honor the debt?

    You are referring to the theory, I am referring to how it was practiced in actuality in this country for the last 30 years, which consisted of deregulation, tax cuts to the rich and increased spending.

    What? I'm sorry but honor the debt? They would honor the debt, but they wouldn't honor every thing the government has promised people. Kind of a big difference.

    What makes you think I advocate their not honoring the debt?

    Perhaps if you were't so quick to build up straw men you'd not confuse my questioning your premises with a red herring. You should really look up what the fallacy means.

    No your not. You are referring to nonsense that is disconnected from reality.

    No, I am accurately using the terms "economic system" and "trickle down economics" which is a pejorative for low taxes.

    Deregulation and increased spending have nothing to do with "trickle down economics." Tax cuts don't need to be funded, spending does. And no amount of taxing could have covered our deficits.

    Go back to what I said, read what it was in response to, then come back and admit you don't know what you're talking about.
