    Haymarket's "support" of the 2nd Amendment, a right he believes we never had.

    Oh, I didn't realize every post was supposed to be in response to a previous post. I thought we were just having a normal conversation. My bad.

    Glad you asked, Boop! Current GOP Leaders Upped Debt Limit 19 Times During Bush Presidency. Whoa, really? I'm surprised, are you surprised? I'm surprised!

    ... this is a debate forum, a conversation is between two people who agree, and your statement began with "And nor do you..." which clearly indicates that it is a response to something.

    Yes, the Republican Party has little authenticity.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Yes please explain how such a statement can be made not in response to anything.

    Re: Economists: Failure to raise debt limit could lead to recession

    This is true, but heres why: the repubs and the dems (save a few on both sides) do not want to close branches of government down which is especially risky to do it all at once during a weak economy (less people with job means less capital flow means less demand means gradual loss of more jobs). If budgets followed the line somewhat more closely to say a Paul or Demint (minus the religion bias) thread then the debt limit wouldn't matter. It may have to be raised in the short run to meet short term debts, but only by a fraction of what it needs to be raised. Not only that, but SS, medicare, and Medicaid could reap the windfall "surplus" to remain solvent long enough for a equitable solution to be formulated and implemented.
