All Citizans Lose When Idiots Fight

Are all “republicans” idiots or are there just a few republican idiots who have been elected to national government positions. Once again in the recent budget and debt limit fight, republicans snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in just a few weeks. Multiple groups of republican leaning politicians would rather be “right” than win policy battles and elections. This “righteousness” is likely to result in even more democratic victories. The idiocy is in the form of republicans calling other republicans nasty names and laying blame on each other for problems mostly caused by democrats. So long as republicans continue their idiocy, democrats can easily justify “name calling,” half-truths, and outright lies that the general public then believes.

Inverse Chronological Order 

Ridiculous Deficit/Debt Rhetoric & Senate Vote

Politicians’ deficits and debt proposals lack credibility but provide (false) hope for many uninformed citizens.

Proposed Tax Increases and Spending Cuts Facts:

Every political season is filled with political rhetoric, media sound bites, and misinformation. This season is different because our political candidates are incapable or unwilling to discuss the truth about our Nation’s problems. The truth is that the scale and magnitude of these problems are larger than our politicians’ ability to respond. This terrifies politicians because it demonstrates their need for power and personal greed have taken priority over our nation’s long-term wellbeing. Politicians’ future depends upon their ability to hide the facts.

Are Businesses and the Wealthy “Bad Citizens?”

Our citizenry has been lead to believe by politicians that businesses and the wealthy are “bad greedy citizens” because they have too much power and receive special treatment. This works out nicely for the politicians since it provides food for their rhetoric. But is this conclusion true or false? The answer is “false.” The argument is up side down.

Politicians in return for favors and money (bribes) bestow power and special treatment to businesses and the wealthy. The politicians have past laws and rules that allow them to legally accept favors and money and they eagerly do so. Who are the “bad citizens” in this scenario? Is it those who offer the (legal) bribes to the politicians or the politicians who passed the laws and rules that allow them to take bribes?

Quantitative Easing Affects All Of Us

Federal Reserve’s “Quantitate Easing (QE)” is simply money printing. Money is typically printed to accommodate an expanding economy. When money printing greatly exceeds economic growth, every dollar printed slashes (lowers) the value of existing dollars. Excessive printing is now being done to TEMPORARILY prop up our government and the stock market.
