    Herman is not a stupid person. He's right.

    The evidence: This September, our national debt will hit $15 trillion. For the educationally challenged, that is 102% of our GDP. We will owe more than we have. Any citizen who's debt exceeds their assets is an idiot. Therefore, our government are idiots. Therefore, Cain is right. Our country is being destroyed by stupid people.

    Where is the evidence that Cain is stupid?

    Three tactics? Lies? SIN. Shift ignore and name call. Yikes, what a complete hypocrite. And the greatest irony is he uses "liberal" which the right made a four letter word long ago. He needs to add "progressive" to his lexicon. The right is working on that word too. Even 'social democracy' or justice are bad words in their world. Name call, huh! Jeez, if the conservatives didn't have liberals to blame, do you think they would be completely lost? Memories can be short but please.

    "President Eisenhower describes his administration's political philosophy as 'dynamic conservatism,' then as 'progressive, dynamic conservatism,' then as 'progressive moderation,' then as 'moderate progressivism,' and then as 'positive progressivism.'" William Manchester

    Your whining doesn't change the facts. I stated those facts once, I will not repeat them. And.... there is a decent amount of Americans who will not stand idly by while stupid people destroy our country in the name of 'redistribution of wealth'.

    Alot of countries hold us in contempt because of our debtor nation status combined with doing next to nothing about it. Our degree of influence is also rapidly shrinking more than any other factor due to this.

    What is the best way to get rid of our Constitution and change this country into a banana republic?
    BANKRUPTCY - that has been Obama's goal all along.
    Can't have complete government control as long as we have the constitution.

    Any citizen who's debt exceeds their assets is an idiot? Where did you get that?

    A young couple makes $70,000 a year and have assets of $20,000. They owe $30,000 on a student loan. They purchase a $200,000 home with $20,000 down and owe $180,000

    They owe more than they earn, they owe more than their assets
    Are they idiots?
