    If they would stop this Wilson-era bullshit tinkering unemployment would go down and businesses could accurately prepare YEARS IN ADVANCE and hire people. I don't see why this is such a difficult god damn concept.

    You're right. Business needs to be able to see years down the road. Obama has put blindfolds on us all.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly.

    The govt needs to pack it up and get out of the way and stick to the limits placed on its power by the constitution.

    Hmmmm.....first all I ever hear from the right is, "Why doesn't Obama take action on the economy"?

    Now I'm hearing, "It's not the government's job to fuck with the economy".

    WTF??????????:confused:

    Sure thing. It could start by getting rid of the standing professional army. Never was mandated by the constitution and costs a bundle.

    I will start believing you guys when you really start going after the big ticket items.

    Yup we don't need bases defending europe and asia at all, those countries can do it on their own.

    Our troops should be here defending our seaports and northern and southern borders keeping all the wealth spent on the expenses to feed, cloath, and fuel them up within the country.

    We just need enough military to ensure we can deter others from attacking us and if they decide to attack us have enough that we can swiftly decimate their entire country.

    The belief that the government should have nothing to do with the economy is the single biggest reason why this sort of conservatism represents only a small and dwindling minority of the people.

    Seriously.

    what nonsense... what has changed substantially since baby bush was president?

    nothing you say, other than obama derangement syndrome?

    quite right.

    now, reality... government ALWAYS affects business. Every decision from whom to tax and for what or what not to tax effectuates economic policy. The REASON our laws exist as they do is because the middle class does not exist in the face of laissez faire capitalism. You end up with wealth disparity approximating what exists in countries like Peru... or Bolivia... or even countries like Saudi Arabia... ignorant, angry, uneducate, populace, and armed guards and the army protecting the wealthy.

    that is the end result of "getting out of business' way".

    me? i want to know that if some loser company tries to sell my son toys painted with lead paint, that my government is going to stop them. i want to know if some company throws chemicals into my water, that government is going to stop them. i want to know that if some company tries to re-create sweat shops or pay people a wage they can't give on as it used to be in merry ole england, then my government is going to stop them.

    this whole "leave the poor corporations alone" so they can pour bazillions into manipulating our political system is bizarre. i've never seen people take positions against their own self-interest like this ever in my life.

    frankly, if trickle down worked, it would have worked already. voodoo economics.

    Well we haven't operated on that belief for over 80 years now....how is that going for us as a nation? 9% unemployment, 15trillion in debt, 10's of trillions more in unfunded liabilities (unconstitutional liabilities at that).

    Ever since the likes of wilson we haven't operated a laissez-faire style economy but instead one where the govt is involved.
