    1. In "Applied Economics: Thinking Beyond Stage One," Dr. Thomas Sowell points out that many politicians do not think beyond Stage One because they will be praised (and elected) for the short term benefits but will not be held accountable much later when the long term consequences appear.


    The truth can be clearly seen in the economic policy that will be voted on in November.

    2. The NYTimes verifies that the Obama economic plan is less beneficial than the Ryan Plan:

    a. Deficit in 2016
    Obama: $529 billion
    Ryan Plan $241 billion

    b. Added debt over the next ten years:
    Obama $6.4 trillion
    Ryan $3.1 trillion

    c. Balances the budget:
    Obama: never
    Ryan: by 2040

    Not even close!
    To vote for the Obama economic plan, one would have to subscribe to 'I know nothing...I vote Democrat.'


    Obama: When you find yourself in a hole.....stop digging.

    So, we should trust the party that ran UP the deficits to stop doing so in only 28 years.


    Are you serious or is this a joke?

    Know Nothing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Sounds more Republican to me

    The Know Nothing was a movement by the nativist American political faction of the 1850s, characterized by political xenophobia, anti-Catholic sentiment, and occasional bouts of violence against the groups the nativists targeted. It was empowered by popular fears that the country was being overwhelmed by German and Irish Catholic immigrants, who were often regarded as hostile to republican values and controlled by the Pope in Rome. Mainly active from 1854 to 1856, it strove to curb immigration and naturalization, though its efforts met with little success.Membership was limited to Protestant males of British American lineage.

    "...the party that ran UP the deficits..."

    1. (Reuters) - Deficits for the next two fiscal years would be slightly higher than the White House envisions if President Barack Obama's budget plan were adopted, the Congressional Budget Office said on Friday.CBO sees higher near-term deficits under Obama plan | Reuters

    2. Obama Deficits Bush Deficits
    FY 2012: $1,327 billion FY 2009: $1,413 billion
    FY 2011: $1,300 billion FY 2008: $459 billion
    FY 2010: $1,293 billion FY 2007: $161 billion

    Once again the definition of Liberal is an individual for whom data, facts, logic, nor experience have any bearing in decision making.


    Brings to mind the historic term, 'yella' dog Democrat'....Someone (generally from the South) who would vote for a yellow dog if it was a Democrat.

    1. When you hear Ryan promise to balance the budget, just remember,

    Reagan promised to balance the budget,

    with essentially the same plan Ryan is proposing.

    2. Keep in mind, Obama's deficits are all occurring under Republican tax plans; Obama's deficits are the result of Obama acting like a Republican on taxes.

    Most of the Obama deficits are the result of continuing Bush policies. Yes, for that you CAN blame Obama.
