    Saw the news today that the CBO said by 2020, we'll be bankrupt if we stay this course. That our only hope is to cut spending by 20%, leaving us with little more than medicare, medicaid, maybe SS, and defense. Any other way, we go broke, bankrupt. I'm sure many liberals will cheer at the demise and fall of our powerful nation, but it's true, it's gonna happen if we stay this course.

    What does that mean? It means the utopian dream of liberalism is dead in the water. It will never happen. We'll never be able to actually fund this healthcare overhaul. Welfare will dry up. Municipal services will be dwindled down to fire, police, ems, road maintenance.

    In short, conservatism is going to win out....by default. We'll have no other choice. We'll all have to work harder. Save more. Be more responsible. More self-reliant.

    Ironic, isn't it? Liberal spending and ideals have led us into bankruptcy................but the end result will be one in which conservative minded people will be the ones who flourish, and liberal minded people will likely suffer greately because they'll have to fend for themselves. Hmmm. Interesting.

    No one will win because this country will cease to exist. We are destroying our country but go ahead and spend more because we dont need little things like credit ratings.

    Nah. Socialism always ratchets backward. the more screwed up things get, the better electorally for them. Lefty run places have greater income disparities, harsher lives for the poor, and greater levels of dependency and clientism.

    The sad thing is that we can reverse this if we got the right people in. It's not too late, but can it be done?

    I think it's fair to say that the globalist left, including Obama, Clintons, Pelosi, etc, are more than happy to see America's standing fall to that of most of the rest of the world. They truly aren't comfortable living in a superpower and want us knocked down to everyone else's level. They're fine with that. Anyone who argues otherwise is, well, just a fu**ing idiot because they can't see reality playing out in front of them.

    And, the globalist ideals aren't just the left. Some on the right have them also. Bush had some of those views as well.

    The difference? On the right, we have the Tea Party types trying to clean out the cancer that has taken the Republican Party over. And we're doing it quick.

    We need our well intentioned friends on the left to stop the Obama worship and start doing the same to their "side" or this country is doomed.

    Really? In what European nations is this the case?

    Income Inequality Is At An All-Time High: STUDY

    Income inequality in the United States is at an all-time high, surpassing even levels seen during the Great Depression, according to a recently updated paper by University of California, Berkeley Professor Emmanuel Saez. The paper, which covers data through 2007, points to a staggering, unprecedented disparity in American incomes. On his blog, Nobel prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman called the numbers "truly amazing."

    Though income inequality has been growing for some time, the paper paints a stark, disturbing portrait of wealth distribution in America. Saez calculates that in 2007 the top .01 percent of American earners took home 6 percent of total U.S. wages, a figure that has nearly doubled since 2000.

    Heck...the G20 effectively told Obama to poound sand when he suggested MORE be spent.

    Great Britain is cutting spending by 25%...and other EU Countries are following suit...

    They see their err...Obama thinks that he can...just the right people haven't proved history wrong...even though History has always proved to be correct.

    Obama is damaged goods...and even brain Damaged...he and the US Congress that could care a wit of the lessons of History. They think they can outwit solid lessons...and We have to pay for their folly.

    Unacceptable.

    Hurry up November. Time for an enema.

    It's morons like you who will bow down to Obama and allow the destruction of this nation to continue.

    Maybe you missed the part where I said many on the right are cleaning up our own side, getting rid of Bush types, for example, in the Florida race that Marco Rubio is going to win. We are cleaning up the cancer in our party.

    But of course, your braindead liberal response will always defer to "We gave you 8 years". Well, YOUR boy is doing more damage in his first 2 than "ours" did in 8. You'll never realize that it was ideals based on the liberal ideology that got us into the mess we are in. Whether it was done during Clinton, Bush or Obama, it doesn't matter, it is the liberal ideology itself destroying this country. And fu**ing morons like you enable it.

    And the DEMS have had Congress since '06. Obama has tripled what he was 'Given'...Hows that unemployment figure? 10%?

    Not getting better? It ain't Bush...or Republicans...

    Democrat Statists OWN this...Lock, Stock, Barrel.

    And they want to expand on FAILURE.

    Way to GO...:clap2:
