    Lets see now - the mantra of the right is expressed above. And in good economic times the mantra changes to "everything is going well - lets not mess this up with a tax increase."

    So you got it covered on both ends.

    And we still have a nearly 16 trillion dollar debt to pay off. Perhaps your grandchildren and children will thank you.

    Vague mutterings per usual.
    Since the one term Marxist flexible president Barrack Hussein Obama nationalized the student loan industry the taxpayer is on the hook for more than a trillion dollars in student loans. The default rates for student loans has always been very high.

    Taxpayers are on the hook to fund government schools. Is it different in your state?

    If you are an engineer, say a mechanical or electrical, or a physicist, mathematician or anyone who knows how to solve problems, you are likely employed. If you got a worthless degree in mass communications, 18th century English literature or some other soft and squishy degree chance are you don't have a job.

    Cat, it seems to me that you believe all wealth belongs to the government. That explains why you believe that someone keeping their wealth is a bad thing. It seems to me that you are a statist. You seem to believe that the government is essential and the people exist to support the government.

    The one term Marxist flexible president Barrack Hussein Obama's policies have resulted in enormous pain and misery for millions of people. His policies have damaged the private sector and we do not need him. The Marxist has never been successful at creating wealth. He consumes wealth.

    We could use a leader who has demonstrated success over a long period of time. Given the choices between the one term Marxist and a successful businessman the choice is obvious. If you are a taker, one who believes in plunder, who believes that theft by government action is preferable to having a job and being a wealth maker, then you will vote for the one term Marxist.

    Otherwise you will vote for Romney.

    You are going to vote for Obama even if he was convicted of a crime similar to the Aurora massacre. There is no doubt that obama's main argument is

    VOTE FOR ME AND I WILL TAKE STUFF AWAY FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE SMARTER AND MORE INDUSTRIOUS THAN YOU ARE

    and his appeal to rich elitists is


    VOTE FOR ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU ACCESS TO THE WEALTH OF OTHERS

    Is that how you saw the 1990s, one of the best economies in our history?

    .
    "One term Marxist"- FALSE, Obama is neither Marxist or a one term president
    Call him President Obama
    Go ahead tell us his "policies".
    Also tell us all that has been failed to be enacted thanks to the party of NO-paraphrase-"our #1 goal is for Obama to be a one term president." Notice it does not say help the american people
    Tell me how Romney's appeal of Robomney care will help americans
    Tell me how Cutting taxes on the rich will somehow spur the economy rather than just add to their saving accounts
    Tell me how Expanding the military will lower our debt
    Go ahead, tell me?

    i saw the 1990's as the most deregulated era of american history,clinton backed it,rubin fought for it,and greenspan threw in a dash of lowered interest rates.

    Explain please.

    How much wealth did the government consume then? Was it less than one-fifth of the total annual wealth creation of the nation? And what is it today? One-quarter?

    Imagine how much better we could do if the government restrained itself to performing only those tasks that are Constitutional? We could probably get by with taking about a tenth from the makers.

    You think Romney is going to do something viable about this?
