    There has been loss of something like 600,000 public sector jobs since the recession began, owing to cutbacks in government spending.

    If cutting government spending created jobs, then where are those people working now?

    Just to break even on the jobs numbers...

    through the 2000's...before the recession of 2008.
    Now be careful...dont show me that graph showing such did not happen becuae I will apply basic economic fact to shove it right back at you.

    Show me how unemployment did not move for the worst despite...

    1) an increase in the employable
    2) decrease in the need for headcount due to technology such as the internet, boolean searche engines, email, voicemail, enhanced PC graphics, CNC machining
    3) tens of thousands of "dot com" employees being tossed oin the street when that bubble burst....

    We went from a startup country in 1776 to the most prosperous nation without an income tax. Thanks to the creation of the fed and taxes, we have class warfare, debt, govt created bubbles to offset the previous bubble and so on....

    So your suggestion is we go back to being an agrarian society?

    If we practiced the same principles that the founders did, we wouldn't be in this situation and that includes endless wars.
