    Seems to me the social programs in America will be the greatest beneficiary of raising the debt limit. Does this mean it takes socialism to solve America's economic woes? Does it mean Republicans have caved into Socialism, and now are socialists themselves?? Here they have the opportunity to end Socialism, and instead are supporting it by raising the limits again. :eusa_angel:

    The trinkets and goodies out of the treasury are about to start drying up.

    It's a sign of failed leadership. Nothing more.

    Does having debt make you a socialist? No. Does it make you an idiot if your solution to the problem is to add more debt? Yes. And anyone with eyes can see the Republican party is the wolf of big government in sheep's clothing, no better than the democrats.

    What the hell is the sense of having a debit limit if democrats keep raising it? Anyone in the right mind knows that new taxes would be spent without regards to lowering the National debt. Giving politicians money is like giving a stolen ATM card to a community agitator. The money will be gone before you can call 911. You have to get politicians to agree to lower spending.

    HUH?

    What do you consider as America's economic woes?

    I consider the following as America's economic woes :

    1) demagogue welfare/warfare state politicians

    2) the Federal Reserve Board

    3) paper money

    Here's a powerful video that explains what is happening. It's from Ron Paul's team, but the message is spot-on whether you like him or not. Enjoy:

    Ronald Wilson Reagan raised the debt ceiling 18 times in eight years.
