The last election did change the arguement as we've seen. Not that many who would have argued for simply less debt are really changed, but there is nothing they can do about those who refuse to accept that position.
One of the cuts Boehner put on the table was the program that lost us a half billion dollars with Solyndra. Go ahead argue against that.However, we do need to start ending the pork and trimming the size of govt. now IMO. I am to a limited extend a Libertarian and was once a GOP. Reagan and his failed economics model was what caused me to leave the GOP. The cuts the Tea Party endorses are irresponsible while the economy is this bad.
Indeed, no part of capitalism states that money should artifically be held so low for the simple idea of keeping bubbles inflated.As for you assumption that capitalism is about short term goals and trying to tell the housing bubble was capitalism is dishonest.
