CANTRELL, COMING THROUGH IN THE CLUTCH! You guys are racking up the points here.

Fiscal responsibility - making sure we neither commit to spending more than we can afford, nor committing funds to causes that infringe upon peoples' rights to their property through compulsion (threat of detainment, prosecution, penalties, etc) resultant of a majoritarian tyranny. Care to try that again?

So you propose fiat currency to cover our unfunded liabilities? Meanwhile, we'll simply devalue everyone's savings, earnings, wealth, etc at the mercy of a Fed that is apparently answerable to no one? Great idea! Except.... oh yeah... that's never worked anywhere! Thanks Kruegman. Next please.

Again, you guys are killing it in this thread. Keep 'em coming!

helpful hint: when your political ideology has literally never, ever worked anywhere, you might want to hold off on playing the "that's never worked anywhere!" card when arguing against the world's largest economy

You're right. Freedom and fiscal responsibility are failed concepts we should abandon.

We should follow what is going on the EU right?

nah, we should just run deficits during recessions and pay down debt when the economy is functional (instead of using it as an excuse to cut taxes for the rich)

OR.... we could do what Cyprus is doing!

BTW - How much of 3.8 trillion annually do we need to run the government? You'll get no argument from me that DC is spending WAY too much period. The tax thing is merely trying to force the issue for 5 years and counting now.... DC is all like "DAMN THE TORPEDOES!"

Yeah.... Cyprus... that'll go over well. Get ready. It's coming whether you like it or not.... then again, YOU don't mind that do you? I mean... if you don't pay into the system, then you've actually got no skin in the game. So it works out rosy for you guys!

PS - Way to take this ball and run, buddy. You're doin' great!

You are the one that didn't propose a solution... I simply took the one that you guys normally propose... you actually have something in mind or are you just trying to think of something better?

I KNOW! COMMUNISM! amidoingitright?

i normally propose taking money from the poor and giving it to rich bankers? it sounds like you don't really know what's happening in cyprus

anyway i said that austerity doesn't work (because it demonstrably does not), and that this is one of the many fuging silly policy planks of the tea party. in response i get "OH YEAH YOU AND YOUR FIAT MONEY AND WAHT ABOUT CYRPUS HUH"
