    Take away the politicians, doesn't this sound really rediculous?

    Right...Because if any one of us goes out and loots our neighbor to cover our profligate spending, we go to jail.

    Spending our way to prosperity is like either taking out a college loan for yourself in the hopes schooling will make you more money or as a business, advertising or getting a new product in the hopes of selling more.

    Not totally foreign to a government investing in more infrastructure to make sure everyone is not unemployed at once or issuing more tuition grants to help the future.

    Runaway deficit spending can be cured witha few amendments to the Constitution.

    Term limits for Congress Critters.
    A reasonable Balanced Budget Amendment (with exceptions for a declared war).
    A plan to pay off the debt.
