    THE GOP LIVES IN A FANTASY WORLD!


     THE GOP OBSTRUCTIONISTS SEEM TO CLING TO A NOSTALGIC NOTION OF "1950'S" AMERICA. THE MYTH OF AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM.

    THE FACT IS THAT AMERICAN CORPORATIONS ....OWNED PREDOMINANTLY BY  REPUBLICANS...HAVE FOR THE MOST PART.......SOLD AMERICA OUT!

    LOOK THE REALITY IS THAT GLOBALIZATION IS A REALITY. OBAMA HAS TRIED TO ADDRESS THE MATTER.

    REALITY IS THAT WE ARE FAILING NATION DUE TO REPUBLICAN POLICY!!!

    Again...any facts backing this up? What facts do you have that prove the GOP wants to revert back to the 1950's?

    In other words you have ZERO facts to back up your statement that US corporations are predominately owned by Republicans and ZERO facts that GOP wants to revert back to 1950's. 
    Thanks for confirming what a lying piece of dung you are.

    Yet it seems to be the left that is possessed by an obsession about who's rich. 

    Who is worshiping who?

    Still, seems like you and most of the left are overly concerned with what successful rich people do with their money. 

    Just pointing out that it seems to be the left that is obsessed on this issue.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: THE GOP LIVES IN A FANTASY WORLD! : Woah, hold on there spanky. You're taking some creative license with history. Brooksley Born: True , Born did push for regulation of the derivative market  but she lost the debate to the wingnut ideology which was championed by Greenspan. Greenspan, as Tresury Sec, obviously had much more influence and he used that influence to push the wingnut agenda of deregulation and free markets. Are you now saying that markets shouldn't be free? Are you disavowing the wingnut dogma? The truth is the wingnut dogma won and now we are seeing the results. You should've been happy...if it worked that is. Now that the wingnut dogma has been shown to be a failure, it's not surprising you'd try and dodge responsibility and/or prior cheerleading. Glass-Steagall: That was a failure of both parties, that is a fact. But there was dissenting Dem voices who were earily prescient, they just weren't listened to. The fact is that the repeal was the product of the lobbyists and influence peddling in a wingnut-controlled Congress, something the wingnuts want to continue to this day. Sen Dorgan "I want to sound a warning call today about this legislation," he declared "...we will look back ten years time and say we should not have done this." CDS trades : Dodd-Frank includes regulations for that market. Yes, that same Dodd-Frank that the wingnuts filibustered and watered down. "The move to electronic trading is because of Dodd-Frank [Act] and the impending regulations coming down in the US, where the [Commodity Futures Trading Commission] has proposed that by 15 July, clearable CDS have to be traded on independent platforms," said Farooq Jaffrey, founder and CEO at Traccr. Nat'l debt : Under Obama, government spending has declined at the steepest rate since the 1970s. It's not the spending, it's the recession combined with the wingnuts obstruction of any form of revenue increase. And who was in charge for the recession?  Who tripled the nat'l debt, saddled future administration with two wars, unfunded payoffs to seniors for their vote, a tax cut that is costing trillions etc etc.? Not to mention the wingnuts failure to properly regulate or enforce the financial sector. Total government spending under his watch had the steepest annual decline in three decades. Total government employees fell by the fastest rate in more than 60 years. In the last two years, federal spending and federal employment grew by the slowest annual rate since the 1950s. http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2012/02/barack-obama-austerity-president/252319/ The rest of your post I agree with, or least my disagreements are minor.

    Nat'l debt: Under Obama, government spending has declined at the steepest rate since the 1970s.

         National debt when Obam took office:  $9T

         National debt under Obama now: $16T

    Yet, you think government spending went down.  Hmm.

    That's some grasp of finance you got there, spanky.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: THE GOP LIVES IN A FANTASY WORLD! : Seems that Obama was much more of a 'messiah' for the wingnuts, at least for argumentative purposes. Apparently they actually believed that he would be able to just reset the disaster that was left by the wingnuts for the prior 15 years. Funny how their expectations were so much higher than everyone else's.

    Ohhh, so now he needs more time?  Got it, thanks for that.

    You are a really good parrot!

    His words..."If I don't turn around this economy by the end of my third year, I'll be a one term President."

    The messiah is also a savant.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: THE GOP LIVES IN A FANTASY WORLD! : As everyone knows, the Iraq War, the Afghanistan War, the unfunded perscription plan, the mortgage crises, and the financial crisis all stopped costing money in January 2009. Just like magic. Because there was a D.
    Posted by WhatDoYouWantNow[/QUOTE]

    It must be magic.  I'm not complaining about the spending here, I can do that elsewhere.  I'm just trying to reconcile the comment that under Obama, government spending when down, yet somehow the debt, you know, the money government spends, has nearly doubled.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: THE GOP LIVES IN A FANTASY WORLD! : Both sides were complicit but the fact remains that the wingnuts want to double-down on the past failures of the laissez-faire ideology. They want less regulation, even in the face of such indisputable facts that such an attitude is what ran the car into the ditch in the first place. Heck even Greenspan admitted to his mistakes and that his blind acceptance of, and reliance on, free-market principals had failed miserably. As much as the wingnuts wish to believe in fantasy and alternate realities the truth is Ayn Rand is not an actual governing phiilosophy, at least not one that works anyway. It's a work of fiction. The fact is the last 15-20 years was a test of the whacko wingnut philosophy on markets and laissez-faire gov't and it failed miserably. There is two, or more, important and distinct sides to the story.  The idea that financial markets need to be regulated in some meaningful way so that the few on Wall St are not allowed to perpatrate another disaster on the US economy. And how crony capitalism, influence peddling and lobbyists aren't allowed to run roughshod over our system of gov't.
    Posted by airborne-rgr[/QUOTE]

    OK, how about some facts.  Financial regulation increased dramatically under Bush, and things crashed.  It continues to increase under Obama, and the economy can't get up off the mat.  Read this article for more stats:

    http://reason.com/archives/2008/12/10/bushs-regulatory-kiss-off

    Here's the key takeaway:

    Obama's assertions to the contrary, the 43rd president was the biggest regulator since Nixon.


    The conclusion I draw is the opposite of yours.  It is the excessive regulation that helped crash things, and prevents recovery.
