Then why is it that Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Holland, the most
socialized countries in Europe, are doing fine fiscally?Also, a
major reason that our credit was downgraded was that S&P decided that
Republicans would rather default than raise taxes. U.S. taxes and spending are
on the low end for OECD countries. Just raising our taxes to the level of
Canada's would cure our fiscal problems with no spending cuts.
Canada's taxes are also at the lower end, just not as low as ours. I'm
always advocating spending cuts too, but out spending is not out of line with
the rest of the world.
$16 trillion national debt, growing by nearly $1 billion every day and now over
50% of our GNP! Alarming as it is, our leader in the White House still is
clamoring for more federal spending, Obamacare entitlements while blaming
“rich” people and lying that he has actually cut spending!
Don’t let the facts get in the way of your campaign, food stamp president!
Roland obviously means well, but he has forgotten the basic truth that all who
live beyond their means appear to be very prosperous for a time. But when the
bill comes due, everything comes crashing down.The left-wing
government has set us on a clear course towards becoming the same sort of
atheistic failed economy that Europe has become. Indeed, with more and more
Americans paying no income tax and living of tax-funded entitlement programs, we
are not far away from this fate now.The lesson of Europe is clear:
no nation can survive for long when it pays huge segments of its population to
sit around doing nothing productive. The only way for a nation to be great is
for it to be composed of hard working citizens who work to provide for
themselves and their families. We must throw the leftists out of office and
return to following this principle before it is too late.
Re: "Then why is it that Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Holland, the
most socialized countries in Europe, are doing fine fiscally?"They're not "doing fine, fiscally."Denmark's
household debt burden is the largest, per capita, in the world, by one estimate,
more than three-times GDP. That's not national debt, mind you, but
it's an indicator of private-sector malaise and upcoming collapse.Finland and Sweden show that large governments can be run efficiently, but
their debt-load curves run toward, not away from disaster. Norway and Holland
are only a $30 drop in oil prices from a debt tsunami of Greek, Italian,
Portuguese, and Irish proportion.I understand why the writer would
assert that all's well in socialist Zion. Acceptance of socialism is
existentially dependent on denial of common sense.But, as Dr
Williams so brilliantly points out, buying short-term political favor by
overspending simply CANNOT form the basis of a long-term stable democracy.Socialists know that, too. They're just not as honest as Dr.
Also, Professor Williams remember that the current crisis was born in the good
old USA, not Europe, and that we exported such to them.
And also remember Professor Williams, that the present collapse was produced by
banking industry excesses (not government) in the United States.
Did JCS slip the word "atheism" into his little screed just to scare
someone? Regardless, he makes no other reference to atheism, which, by the way,
is perfectly legal even in Utah and Texas. I'm not advocating it, but just
pointing out that it has little or no relationship to the nation's economy.
I remember that Williams said that Iraq wouldn't cost us trillions. In
fact, he predicted that it would help our economy by creating jobs over there
and securing oil for the USA....Why this man has any credibility is
It will be interesting to see if even Romney can get things turned around.
Politically, there will be a lot of angst. Even among his OWN party.Pensions, entitlements, 6 figure salaries of bureaucrats, military in over 90
countries around the world....... will all test his leadership abilities.Only ONE thing is certain, the current administration hasn't been
able to lead the country in much of anything (except more debt).IF
Romney can't get the economy turned around in 4 yrs. I suspect there will
be yet another contender for POTUS.The nations' debt issues
just can't keep getting shoved aside.
