@H2O MAN,
HAve you been inserting your head up your cloaca lately? If you look outside your basement window, you will notice that we are already in a quickly deepening recession that is threatnening to become a worldwide depression . New rules now apply, rules of which, apparently Gramps has no clue. I say this since his entirecampaign is based upon diversions of the sort that you WN's fondly disperse. Hisw entire campaign is a chimera at least, and is more likely dangerously naive at worst.

Yesterday gramps accused Obama of sdopting Bush's failed economic policies are core to his presidency. He He He. I love that twisted logic.
Its as stupid as the "citizenship" issue and Bill Ayres. When do you think Gramps will let us in to hear about what he DOES stand for? MAybe on November 5th.

@Thomas,
You might usefully review Canadian macro data, Thomas. Meanwhile rest assured that basket cases like Ukraine, Hungary, Pakistan et al never followed "market economics" and they're the ones tanking, not Canada.

Japan is also tanking, though for much the same reasons as other non-socialist folks. Will be back online late next week - nice to see you all Smile

No.

That must be a Liberaltard's method of soul searching that is unknown to me.


That skinny young black guy is naive, arrogant, inexperienced and just not qualified for the job.
His entire campaign is based on popularity competitions like Star Search and American Idol.
Obama is a clear and present danger to this countries economic security. Obama is bad for this Republic.

@H2O MAN,
He's just a South Side hustler, H2O. They turn 'em out black, young, old, skinny, fatty - whatever.

I still think McCain / Palin will make it - even The Economist has come up with a hitherto unknown (to mathematics) predictive variable:

@Thomas,
You are comparing Canada (with a population smaller than California) with the United States. Canada's defense budget is $18 billion. The USA defense budget is 480+ billion which is approximately 1/3 of Canada's GDP. The USA at a GDP of 14.3 trillion is the world's largest economy, and Canada depends on the USA for 80% of theirs and would need the USA to defend it if it came under serious attack from an outside power. Which we would almost certainly do without question. Canada is important to the USA too.

I'm not knocking Canada. I love Canada and Canadians. But comparing the USA to Canada is like comparing Amarillo TX to New York City and thinking that what works in one will work exactly the same in the other or that there is essentially no difference between the two.

@Foxfyre,
It's easy to rebut your opponents' points when you get to make up what points they made. But you don't.

I didn't say there is essentially no difference between Canada and the US. I didn't say that liberal policies in America will work out exactly like liberal policies in Canada. All I said is that America will survive eight years of the liberal policies Obama is likely to pursue as president, because Canada has implemented even more liberal policies, and survived. That's a very crude prediction, requiring but a very crude comparison. For purposes such a crude prediction, you can safely assume that tax revenues and government spending are proportionate between the countries.

Obama admitted he is in favor of wealth redistribution, tax hikes and increased spending.

This is nothing more than Jimmy Carters economics revisited. None of this is good for our country.

Reagan raised taxes.
Reagan increased spending and expanded the deficit.
Reagan implemented the Earned Income Tax Credit which directed tax dollars from those who had lots of money to the poorest among us.

Maybe not, but it would be an improvement over George Bush's economic performance. In real terms, the American economy grew by an average 3.3% during the Carter administration (Source: US Department of Commerce), as compared to 2.3% during the Bush administration (Source: US Department of Commerce) .

@H2O MAN,
Bush's choice -- at least as far as the second front was concerned.

Apart from that, war generally increases the gross domestic product -- unless the enemy destroys productive capacity in your country, which the Afghans and Iraqis haven't. This excuse doesn't work.
