    Cheesewars has another inane poll up, so I want to replace it with one of mine.

    But it really is an interesting question for everyone.

    After nearly doubling the debt over the last two years, the Democrats are suddenly being deficit hawks about the Bush Tax cuts. How credible do you regard this argument in light of what they have done since they came in.

    My personal arguments are that the tax cuts are stimulative and more effective than Democrat stimulus. YMMV of course. The tax cuts go to productive areas of the economy, rather than to areas that are just spending for its own sake, and recycling government money into politicly favored groups.

    Tax cuts also have the positive of restricting government inanity. Always a positive.

    Also, at current rates, in addition to be stimulative, lower rates do produce higher income. what with substation effects, folks dropping out of the economy because the game is not worth the candle, and the reality that profits mean that this is an area more business wants to get into, and more profits mean more jobs.


    The real economy is the choices the people make for their own improvement. Government getting out of the way and allowing for greater freedom will lead to greater prosperity.
    anyway, to the poll.

    Cheesewars has been put on notice that his polls bug me a lot, and he is not going to do them with impunity any more.

    Also, could a nice mod please remove the other thread? I made a bungle.

    LOL Brother do you have it bad. Obama is set to pass everyone like they were standing still. I see you also gave a pass to pelosi and her 5 trillion.

    Meaning you are just a pathetic hack.

    The fact remains that it was bush* who nearly doubled the national debt, and fact that 75% of the national debt was incurred under three Republican presidents - Reagan, GHWB, and bush*

    How can you tell when a Democrat is lying? His lips are moving.

    Democrats have no credibility because when you start asking about cutting the budget the first thing they get into is "we need to preserve funding for our children" and then vote another billion dollars on an airport to nowhere.

    I don't put any more stock in bankster puppet Dimocraps claims to fiscal responsibility than I do the bankster puppet Repugnantcraps.

    Saw this on another board -- the poster got it in an email:

    So, yeah, the claims that Bush created the huge deficit that Obama inherited are false. The Democrats, to include then-Senator Obama, are responsible.
