The US went from a net credit nation to a net debit nation.
During the Reagan years, the nation first passed a trillion dollars in debt.

The roots of the current troubles go back to that point. If the American people had shown as much concern about the debt back then, as they do now, it’s quite likely you wouldn’t be sitting on a debt that is quickly heading to 20 trillion dollars.

As I said, that wasn’t a shot against Reagan or the Republicans. That was merely a comment on America’s debt.

What you said. I’m callin’ a spade a damned jackass, eh?

The middle class can whine all they want. That’s their prerogative (if that’s what they seem want to do).

I know what I posted by some media pundit back 27 Dec 11. What ‘bout what happen NH election? As nearest I can tell my unsophisticate intellect discerns the Romney camp having some loud cheers eminating.

What do I hear from the Paul camp? OH, yes, my ears mistake loud cheers as lament.

Hmmm.

I’ll tell you that my lament is that 99.9% of Americans don’t understand what conservativism means. They’re out there in their asparagus fields and wondering why in the hell their fields aren’t getting picked asparagus.

Government revenues doubled in the 80’s. Reagan wanted to cut the demoncratic congress reneged and blew the budget in the 80’s. Don’t blame Reagan. Learn history instead of spreading leftist lies. Do some research.
