    Since debt does not matter its time to end taxation and its overhead, crank up the presses, forget budgets, and print all we need. All of are problems are solved.

    Again with the same snappy answer. (One that has already been answered, btw.)

    Why is it that you guys can't manage to answer the few questions I have posed so many times? If he can't demonstrate some harm that comes from debt and deficit spending, then he has no business starting yet another thread premised on the harm that debt and deficits do, like it's a given. It's not a given.

    If you are going to participate in the thread, then do your job and bring the data. There is so little substance coming from your side, it's like my guys are shadowboxing.

We haven't seen ANY effort from the Left to make a change, just an ongoing support of the status quo within the Dem. party. I think that most of us can agree that both parties are crap at handling debt/spending, yet only conservatives have tried to fix this problem. We need a Left version of the Tea Party, but what we're getting is more and more of the same old, same old. If we are ever going to fix this problem, we need to break the mold and get us out of this rut.
    If they gave a **** then they'd do the same thing to Trump. The tea party came out of the wood work to tell a president who was facing a terrible recession to cut federal spending which is the dumbest idea that they could have possibly come up with. Now we have a president taking over a good economy and not a peep except for Rand Paul. The Tea Party can lick my nuts.

    So? Its still an answer to the challenge you posed. Moving goalposts shows a lack of integrity.

    So he asks a question about sovereign debt, you respond with a comment about Argentina's debt (which was not sovereign), and you claim he's moving the goalposts? You simply answered the question incorrectly.
    I'm not going to chase you while you run around with the goalpost in your arms.
