As do I…But, supporting my country, as I’m sure you’re aware doesn’t mean you always agree with it’s elected leaders.
That’s not really supporting a President thouh, is it? You supported decisions he’s made, but you’re not really supporting the President.
For my part, I support the decision to use the fiscal deficit to achieve policy goals, even if I disagree with those goals, Trump is proving that deficits don’t cause economic ruin any more than gravity causes plane crashes.
I look forward to Dems using the same deficits to achieve some of their policy agenda’s and shaking my head in disbelief as people like you wait till Dems run up the debt to begin running around like chicken little telling us all how the children of the future will pay for the irresponsible deficit spending.
It was slow and steady… As if that’s a bad thing. Economic bubbles happen when the economy heats up to quickly and the foundation of the economy becomes unstable.
See that’s not what the ultra-wealthy want, they want the sharp rise and dramatic fall. They make money on both sides, they don’t care, so they have people like you convinced that 8 years of slow and steady growth is bad. Only a partisan could say that growth is bad when the other party is in power.
Is this economy bad?
I’m happy it’s doing as well as it is. I’ve pointed out in other threads that I believe that there is some underlying weakness pointing to real economic indicators, not left-wing talking-points.
LOL, no not a fascist, but if it makes you feel better to label me as a fascist, help yourself.
Did Italy or Germany under Mussolini or Hitler operate within a government with 3 co-equal branches?
No? Then no, not a fascist.
Government of, by and for the people. Is that what fascism is?
Then no, not a fascist.
Not entirely certain of what you mean here.
Do I believe in private property? Sure, do I think private property is an absolute? No of course not.
Do I think the government should control the means of production, in very limited instances, sure, but in very limited instances where profit motives collide and leverage human suffering as a method to drive profit or in other areas where private distribution is much less efficient than a government system. Take, for example, privatizing the road system or weighing in on things like weights and measures.
Please do, I’d enjoy reading them.
I wouldn’t know
First, things have been getting better for everyone since 2010 at a similar pace.
Second, there’s a lot more to “better” than just a job…
I would agree that victim culture is a real thing, but I’d also say that racism and bigotry is a real thing. The trick is figuring out how to recognize it without fostering victim culture.
That’s true, but not everyone gets the same opportunity to live up to their potential.
