    The last two paragraphs, moreso the last one, are the key to understanding liberalism's zig-zag course to ultimate financial disaster.

    "More of what caused the disease is now being recommended as treatment." Doesn't that describe keeping huge tax breaks for the rich? It failed before, it's failing now, why should it succeed in the future? Oh, "Escape from reality."

    The republicans went into office with a CBO projection of a $6 trillion SURPLUS. The republicans said that we cannot afford it now because we still have a debt to pay but we want it now and we are going to take it now. Gosh, I know... We will go to communist China and borrow it and take it. Good... Let's do it again. Hey, lets start 2 wars. Let's expand Medicare. Gee, why don't we teach these people a lesson and ship 8 million jobs overseas. And how about getting government out of the way and we'll crash the economy. People will lose their life's savings and we can devalue everybody's property by at least 30%, force people into bankruptcy and buy it up their assets for almost nothing.
    The democrats are not cleaning up our mess fast enough... we can't wait to do it again. Why don't we scare people and call them socialist... I'll block and you obstruct.... Yeah!

    Socialism feeds off what the freemarket originally built in Europe. Now it has come full circle and is about to destroy Europe. In the USA we now have the baby boomers retiring from 2011 to 2030 and then social security will be finished for good. We will have to return to less government in order to get the economy going again. I put your article up on my website and I know it will get a lot of hits this week. Thanks for writing great articles every week.
