    Hey AHAB!

    I was just laid off, (I got priced out of my position... "Head Count Reduction" although they just hired 4 guys to replace me, after 7 years and actually PERFORMING in such that I "earned" my "promotions/salary". But thanks to potus "B.S." b'sess policies, I did nothing to earn that on my own. I want nothing more that to get "off my couch". I just interviewed for a position relative to what I was doing....Same industry...   It paid $35,000 a year. I was making $70,000+. I can't afford to Support a family of four on $35,000. I was making close to that out of high school.

    So If there were JOBS to BE HAD. I would be there.

     

     




     

     

    Ah, never mind.

    you can put hundreds of thousands of fellow americans out of work, you can cut funding for low income families, you can cut spending on programs that benefit poverty stricken children, you can cut funding on programs for army vets... just don't raise MY taxes! 

     



    How much money should the government spend? What is a good debt to GDP ratio? Does this mean Germany, with their lower debt-to-GDP ratio, or the UK, lower tax burden, are slipping into fascism? Why should we kick the can down the road? Most importantly why does the Government need to spend more money?

     

     



    actually the most important question is why does america need to cut spending for programs that benefit elderly americans, low income americans, american army vets, and american children in poverty while maintaining large amounts of spending on war, bank bailouts, and foreign aid?

     

    also, define fascism.. 



    No that is not a question at all. If they could agree on reasonable cuts then the sequester wouldn't be so bad. Are you faux upset with the VP plane being grounded? Lets face facts cuts need to be made. They are going to be painful very painful at times but we need to make cuts. Entitlement reform is about a decade over due. We have record tax revenue yet that is not enough money. We made do with less spending under Clinton, why can't we under Obama? But hey you must be happy, Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood got 250 mm after the sequester.

    ahh another rush limbaugh fox news robot. turn on fox news.. watch fox news.. repeat fox news... you sound just like a republican politician. good job kid. 

     



    No I am a true libertarian. I havent even stopped on Fox News in probably 5 years. Ideally I privitize SS and Medicare, end farm aid, tax weed, end the wars, end all foreign ocuppied and aid and reduce taxes to a flat 17% for every dollar earned regardless of how it is earned, how much or how little. You repeatedly do this when you lose an arguement you name call like a 10 year old and ignore the question at hand. Here is a basic question do you think $1 of spending should be cut?

    what is a true libertarian? are you a ronpaulbot? you keep throwing around these subjective labels...fascism, entitlement, true libertarian.. what are you talking about? do you support ending aid to israel also? 

     

     



    Unfortunately you've thrown around labels as well, calling anyone who doesn't take a firm left-leaning stance a 'fox news' type, Republican, etc, etc.

    I'm a solid Liberal.. probably could even call me a 'Libertarian Socialist' (libertarian on social issues, more socialistic when it comes to the economy). Point is, I'm just looking for some consistency.

    With that said I enjoy reading 95% of your posts, so keep up the good work. You went a bit kookoo with the 'Ricky' moniker a few weeks back, but Godvernment seems more inclined to civil conversation, and that's a good thing.

    if you had any brains you would know that i don't subscribe to either party. i've never seen you here before so i guess you don't know my postition. but, if you would just take a second to read through the thread i think you will see it is quite clear that i blame obama and the right-of-center democratic party just as much as i do the far-right republicans.

     




    do you think crying about it here is going to make a difference?

    Very sorry to hear. It is a hard thing. I think you are being hugely nieve to think that POTUS policies are at fault. THe "other guys" are so focused on short term debt (or at least they pretend to be) that they have done absolutely nothing to help jobs. Not being a Democrat I say this with no political ax to grind except to say that instead of your job being "cut" they should be cutting all but say 50 positions in the house and all but 50 in the Senate. And their pay should be cut in half!

    The main problem with libertarian perspective is that it tends to under estimate and even undermine the things that most require shared effort and shared burden. A better balance is needed to be effective in the real world rather than "merely" intellectually pleasing.

    Sound bites of the dogmatic are not a sound basis for good policy. Of course everyone agrees people who earn their success deserve the rewards of that success. There are actual, serious issues that go so far beyond such a myopic statement.
