    Yes, they actually did. The same illusion is being cast over the eyes of Americans right now, and Americans are falling for it. In a few years, we'll all be as bankrupt as California.

    It's sad, the whole point of being intelligent is that we should be able to see examples like this and know that it's not a good thing, yet so many people ignore these examples or spin them ... or worse thinking that someone else can make it work. It is insanity as Chanel pointed out.

    Yep. And many defend it by saying "it's better than the Necon's tax less and spend just as much policies." Both, of course, are wrong.

    ;) Part of my point to. Why we haven't looked for something other than these two is what's troubling.
