    I've never suggested federal spending to be the optimal catalyst for growth, nor have I suggested they engage in a program of the scale you've suggested, just as no serious Conservative has advocated for the elimination of all taxation, despite the benefits of reductions. All things in moderation.

    The fact is you say giving money to the people improves the economy, thus the more the government gives the people the more the economy grows. This is your premise and belief.
    In some circumstances, yes. However, growth cannot always take precedence over fiscal sanity, nor can we ignore the negative effects that would likely occur as a result.

    I agree you have not, nor have I said you did. This whole debate is giving people money improves the economy, thus the more government gives to people the more the economy will grow. This is your premise.

    In some circumstances, yes.
    Here you confirm that belief.

    aha! So, they do. The "part time because they couldn't find full time is not as high as I imagined in the current economy.

    I believe we should start instructing our elected representatives to bear true witness to our own federal doctrine and State laws regarding the concept of employment at will.

    If you mean the following:

    At-will employment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    ...I could not agree more.

    Or do you mean the opposite?

    I mean we should be legal to our own laws instead of only calling kettles black, with a McCarthy era phrase in our pledge.
