False dichotomy. He didn't say we were swimming in rivers of wine and roses.

The economy was definitely less vulnerable prior to the Fed. Recessions never were as bad as they got after the progressive movement of the early 1900s.

That is not really true. There were several very bad recessions in the 1800's, especially when Jackson was screwing around with the banking system, and around the time of railroad speculation in the 1890's. In reality, most modern day recessions are relatively mild in comparison to the economic bom and bust fluctuations that occurred from 1787 to 1941.

On average, yes. Academically, anyway. However, the Fed made bad recessions much less self-correcting, as evidenced, for example, by the declined strength of the current economy since the 2008 recession ended three years ago.

Basically, the booms aren't quite as powerful as the busts.

After you your gross income reaches $115,000, you stop having to pay a certain tax, which is about $70 a week!

Bring back the Articles of Confederation!

But you are really that worried that worried about income taxes, why not move somewhere without them? Here are some good options, especially if you can speak arabic.

United Arab Emirates

Qatar

Oman

Kuwait

Cayman Islands

Bahrain

Bermuda

what's funny is "just move somewhere else if you don't like it" is libertarian to the core but for some reason they don't want to uproot and move somewhere else; they want a government tailored to their own liking so that other people will have to move

Dumbest thing I have ever heard.

It's not easy to move to another country.

I love the why don't you move thing.

If you want big government, socialistic utopia, government safety nets, etc....there are plenty of those countries out there.

The USA in the past stood against all of those things. That is what many of us want to go back to.

The forwards, the lefts, the progressives...they have a place, in fact many places, especially in Europe.

    • You don't see white people glorifying thug life and blaming the police when they get caught. I had a juvi tell me straight up that he believed he was a man now cause he shot somebody. Tell me what's the problem with that. Clearly it's the police? Right??
    • And I've been in jails were there were literally no black people in them, violent or otherwise. Crime in general is a problem in poor communities and the black community is disproportionately poor, its not because black people or the culture is inherently violent. Regardless this is a separate issue and had nothing to do with police violence, unless you feel that violence against the poor is justified regardless of cause because poor people commit violent crimes and shouldn't be afforded equal protectiom
