I would suggest that the politicians know dam good and well that the majority of those voting don’t give a dam about the future of this country. When the government takes care of you have no need to understand basic economics, you only need to understand that “”The Government delivers””.Sadly, we elect politicians who haven't learned.... that if we earned $50 a day and spent $150 every day, in a short time, the end result would have to be bankruptcy!
The problem is, we have a lot more lazy Americans, which result in a lot more democrats. Our country will slowly slip into a #$%$ hole from here. There are too many people who depend on our government now that they will continue to vote for those that give them free money instead of those that try to make them self sufficient. The country is headed in one direction and that is down down down.
Liberal want to spend more, it doesn't matter that we are broke. Republicans want the economy to improve, keep more of your money you earn and stop paying people not to work. Yes, it is that simple.
"The only people who don't want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide." (Barack Obama August 21, 2010)' Oh bro you lie time and time again.
I do believe the country as a whole is in deep crap and getting deeper. The takers are increasing in numbers and the providers are shrinking in numbers. The one positive I see is that some states do not follow the same models as the federal government and these states may someday be a guiding light to how government should be ran.
