lowering taxes can actually increase governmentrevenues. If new businesses, new investments and new hiring arespurred by the prospects of better after-tax returns, the taxespaid by these new or growing businesses and employees can more thanmake up for the lower rates of taxation.

....more decent jobs means more folks workin'....more folks workin' means more income taxes being paid...more income taxes means (wait for it) more comin' in and (possibly) less goin' out.......now.....if only the politicians hadn't let/aided/abetted/the corporations send those jobs i mentioned earlier overseas, we would be paying attention to another thread..........

Did you know 1/2 the GDP is paid in interest?
On December 12, 2013, debt held by the public was approximately $12.312 trillion or about 73% of Q3 2013 GDP Intragovernmental holdings stood at $4.9 trillion (29%), giving a combined total public debt of $17.226 trillion or over 100% GDP. As of January 2013,$5 trillion or approximately 47% of the debt held by the public was owned by foreign investors, the largest of which were the People's Republic of China and Japan at just over $1.1 trillion each.
You're either forgetting one important factor in this, or you're deliberately skirting the truth. Adjusted for inflation and the devaluing of the dollar, we don't have enough money to "ever" pay off the debt.
Time for people to understand something. We aren't going under, we went under. None of you are going to like what I'm about to say, but it's the undeniable truth. When Reagan left office, he left with an increase to the national debt of 188.6%. That's an increase of almost 3 fold. There was no paying that off. It was the cost of ridding Russia of communism. Since then, there has been no other choice but to go deeper into debt in order to stay afloat. Well, the hole in the boat has grown beyond repair. The boat sank and we're barely treading water. Other nations are throwing us life rings, but they'll run out of those eventually too. There is no "fixing" this. And it's not the governments fault either. It's the fault of the person that's looking back at you in the mirror every morning. Don't believe it? Go thru your house and find out how much of what you own was made here in the states and how much was made elsewhere. For every dollar of product that China buys from us, we buy five from them. So, you wanted cheaper items, you got them. Hope your enjoying all those cheap foreign products. Kinda hypocritical to bitch about other countries when you're the ones sending the money to them. Isn't it?

Then step up to the plate. Until then, you're just screaming at the wind. As for "corrupt, thieving, self-serving" goes, sounds like most of the people of this nation. Doesn't it?

You wouldn't know "the truth" if it hit you over your hard-as-a-rock liberal head. Go watch PBS, then switch to NBC for tomorrow's 'tard talking points...

Have we met? I don't think so. Because if we had, you'd know what a fool you just made of yourself by calling me a liberal. You folks seem a tad bit upset by the truth. Why is that? Could it be, the truth doesn't fit your little dream world? Or is it because of being called out on the BS you're being fed and regurgitating back up? I will give you one thing though. You do stick to the talking heads script pretty well word for word. Try doing a bit of independent research on your own and see what you find. By checking with completely neutral sources, you might just learn something.

And as wild as it may sound, asteroids could be highly profitable. scientists speculate that a relatively small metallic asteroid with a diameter of 1 mile contains more than $20 trillion worth of industrial and precious metals.

I'm not sure who "you on the right" is. Is that what Obama apoligists automatically label those that do not agree with Obama?

He probably means "people on the right". If you weren't so effing dense you would have picked up on that.

Five years ago, if you had brought up moon mining among geologists,“you would have been laughed out of the room,” said Gordon Osinski, founder and director of the Canadian Lunar Research Network, and an assistant professor of geology at the University of Western Ontario.

Times have changed. Mining on the moon and on asteroids is clearly in the sights of governments and, increasingly, private companies.

In February, NASA announced it was accepting applications from U.S. companies to build robots for lunar prospecting

Many elements that are rare on Earth can be found aplenty on the moon. Satellite imaging has shown that the top 10 centimetres of moon soil at the south pole of the moon appears to hold about 100 times the concentration of gold of the richest mines in the world

Very interesting material, maybe once they've retrieved the gold they could use it to end the National Debt.
