    I'm sorry, are you not on here defending the economic practices of Conservatism? That cutting taxes for the wealthy will somehow magically trickle-down on the rest of us, when they never have ever?

    If you had a problem with debt, then you would have opposed the Bush Tax Cuts. From what I gather from your posts, you still think those tax cuts produced good things. They didn't. All they produced was higher household debt and record deficits that doubled the debt in 8 years when if Conservatives had done literally nothing to the tax code, the debt could have been paid off in 9 years.

    Conservatives couldn't even do nothing right. That's why it's so hard to take you all seriously today. We know you're wrong. We're just waiting for you to catch up.

    No, I am not. I am on here criticizing high levels of debt. Something liberals also do.

    So you oppose the Bush Tax Cuts and trickle-down economics? If so, great! If not, why?

    OK, you're "criticizing" high levels of debt, but ultimately, what does the high level of debt mean? It doesn't mean a weaker economy, as that theory turned out to be a pack of lies. So what is your big concern about the debt other than the number of zeros?

    You keep seeming to want to lump me with some group that Im not part of. Thats why its hard to take YOU seriously. You want to label everyone as part of some enemy group.

    I posted it above. Maybe try reading the thread instead of jumping to assumptions and insults.

    Ah yes, the "I'm not a part of the things that I support and defend" defense. So you're willing to say here that the theory of trickle-down is bunk?

    You mentioned the interest on the debt. OK...and what is the big deal about that? Everyone pays interest on debt. You pay interest on your mortgage. You pay interest on your student loans. You pay interest on your credit card. So why is paying interest on the debt something that has your panties in a wad?
