I couldnt agree more. The solution is so easy and would turn the economy around within a very short period of time, and this country would be booming again. It is just unfortunate that most of these corrupt, incompetent clowns in Washington either can not see it, or for what ever reason dont want to do it. I do not want to imply that all of them are bad and corrupt, but I do believe a good portion of them are.
On the other hand why do we expect the people who represent us be any better then the populace in general as they are pretty much a reflection of the people who elected them. Unfortunately and sad to say, any more about half the population votes for a living while the other half works for a living.
The problem is not just here in the US, as it appears to be world wide and sooner than later I have a feeling it will come to a head, in what shape or form I am not quite sure, but what ever it will be, the results will not be pretty.
The solution may be easy (for a conservative) to understand, but it is fiendishly difficult to implement - because it involves entrenched political interests voluntarily giving up both power and a sure -fire vote-buying scam.
Only when the penalty for holding on to these things becomes greater than the value of keeping them will the entrenched interests let go. That can't happen without a lot of negative reinforcement from the public and the MSM.
