Republicans tease with gold standard, but idea seen full of bugs

Aug 26, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

U.S. Republicans have all but guaranteed the backing of the "gold vote" this November by raising an idea that even the most bullish mainstream bullion boosters believe is unrealistic - a return to the gold standard.

As a cynic my take is that the Republicans (except for some like Ron Paul) are fishing for votes from folk that think this is a silver bullet. It is not and both the Republicans and Democrats know it. I would think that a return to the gold standard would lead to a renewed search for the 'Philosophers stone'.

LOL! You're a "Known" Democrat so it's not surprising that you'd try to find a way to bash an "Idea" posed from a repub while never introducing your solution or even adding to the debate. Complaints don't count and wikipedia is a very suspect source.

Funny how the republicans took this nation off the gold standard over 40 years ago, and now want it back!

Expect filthy Democrats to try to motivate youngsters by painting Mr. Romney as extreme on social and environmental issues. In contrast to 2008, Mr. Obama "is going to have to scare them somehow, not enthuse them."



What a Jackass!

To sum up, Mr. Obama is losing independents, his base is less enthusiastic, the economy stinks, and his re-election depends on his ability to convince people that a Massachusetts moderate is a right-wing ideologue. Also, Mr. Obama won't have the huge money edge that he enjoyed over John McCain in 2008. Everyone with a brain is jumping off Obama's Titanic.

The Koch brothers never Collaborated with Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party as did your scumbag George Soros! No wonder he's one of Obama's "Advisers"! No wonder the jackal Obama repaid his campaign contributions by tipping him off to Obama's $2 Billion handout to Petrobas. Soros bought their stock less than 48 hrs before Obama publicly announced his $2 Billion funding!



What Filth!


Obama IS the Greatest Evil and his association with NAZI collaborators only shows you how far gone the Jackasscrat party is since parting with Bill Clinton.

Bullsh!t Dumbo! Where's your proof?

"Some readers have pointed out, entirely accurately, that the gross amount of tax revenue rose in the aftermath of the tax cuts, although there was some decline through 2004. The government took in $2 trillion in 2000; $2.6 trillion in 2007.(I’m using Riedl’s preferred high-point year here.) This increase barely keeps up with inflation.

More important, to get back to McConnell’s assertion about the absence of evidence that the tax cuts “actually diminished revenue,” the point is: compared to what? The only logical benchmark is whether the tax cuts diminished revenue compared to what they would have been in the absence of any change, and here the answer is indisputable: the tax cuts did their intended job of returning money to taxpayers. The government took in less than it would have otherwise.

How do I know? Brian Riedl said so. Riedl found that the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts were responsible for “just 14 percent of the swing from the projected cumulative $5.6 trillion surplus for 2002-2011 to an actual $6.1 trillion deficit.”

How much is just 14 percent? Riedl did the math so I don’t have to:$1.7 trillion. Throw in other tax costs -- primarily the annual patching of the Alternative Minimum Tax, made more expensive by the existence of the Bush tax cuts -- and you get another $400 billion. Throw in the extra interest payments caused by the increased debt -- a cost Riedl conveniently omitted -- and you have $377 billion more."

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/postpartisan...

"
Whether revenue should play any role in deficit reduction is at the root of the fiscal impasse between Congressional Republicans and President Obama. One factor underlying the hard-line Republican position that taxes must not be increased by even $1 is their assertion that the Bush tax cuts played no role in creating our deficit problem.

In a previous post, I noted that federal taxes as a share of gross domestic product were at their lowest level in generations. The Congressional Budget Office expects revenue to be just 14.8 percent of G.D.P. this year; the last year it was lower was 1950, when revenue amounted to 14.4 percent of G.D.P."
