    It's a cost that cannot be repaid and a proverb says"that the borrower is servant to the lender.." meaning that we will be a subservient nation, to a nation who will have authority over us!

    The middle class has been decimated, the deficit has skyrocketed, unemployment is up, the price of gas and oil is nearing triple what it was the day before Obama was elected, the cost of consumer goods has dynamically increased, the wealthiest 1% of the population now control even more of the total wealth, ........etc......etc............

    The cost of his broken promise... FALSE HOPE & UNCONVENTIONAL CHANGE.
    The do as I say not as I do President. Our economy will only continue to go down hill, cost of living will rise the price of oil is going to keep going up because ovomit only cares to support the middle east thug networks he associates with so well. No transparency & eliminating AMERICA from what the government is doing is his goal while supersizing the food stamp lines & welfare lines he will single handedly drive this country into bankruptcy.

    In dollars or effect?

    In dollars it's about 50% higher than it was when Bush left, and Bush had doubled it.

    In effect it's incalculable: The loss of the US's status in the worldt; permanent, crippling debt for our children and grandchildren; massive inflation when the Dollar ceases to be the world's reserve currency (ask the Brits how that goes).

    Obama had a chance to try to bring order back to our house, he SAID he would, and then did a 180 on us. Had he campaigned on "Spend, baby, spend," he wouldn't have won.

    While his broken promises are an issue for sure, I'm more troubled by the ones he's kept so far, His promise to "Fundamentally Change America", His promise to "Pass the Health care bill", His promise to "Spread the wealth around" His promise to be a "Better friend to the Muslim world" these are just four that worry the hell out of me.

    Can any conservative here objectively explain why exactly paying off the deficit is important?
  • FanOreilly TheDrop 2012/03/06 13:00:25 (edited)

    Yes.

    In the first place, you start with a straw man. I did not claim 'paying off' the deficit is important.

    I am claiming that running up massive deficits is bad for the economy as it affects our credit rating which costs us more to borrow, it erodes confidence in the US economy that decreases foreign and domestic investment and it jeopardizes long-term economic stability.

    What is even worse is that the deficit his built largely on entitlements that encourages government dependency, makes people less innovative and productive and makes more and more citizens welfare cases instead of producers.

    This all results in a lower standard of living, more poverty and more misery.

    The US did not become the most prosperous nation by encouraging dependency. We became prosperous by expanding liberty so that individuals put their efforts and capital at risk to gain profits through innovation and hard work while defending the rule of law.

    I am sad that I had to explain this to you.

    Why do you think Romania is so poor?
  • TheDrop FanOreilly 2012/03/06 13:22:43 (edited)
    TheDrop
    Right, so in order to have a prosperous economy you need people to risk their resources in order to gain profits. But how do you expect people to risk anything when they're living paycheck to paycheck, or when the biggest cause of bankruptcy is medical costs? Don't you think that by providing relief for the poor, more people would be in a position to risk their assets? The higher rate of entrepeneurship in countries with stronger walfare systems such as Norway, compared to the US, seems to indicate that this is true. Keeping the deficit low as your primary concern only benefits the rich who lent the money, but they're already highly succesful.

    Romania is poor because throughout it's history it has always been exploited by foreign powers.

    >in order to have a prosperous economy you need people to risk their resources in order to gain profits.

    No, you need investment, not resources. Do you know the difference?

    This can be investor money, bank money or individual money. Is capitalism new to you?

    >But how do you expect people to risk anything when they're living paycheck to paycheck,

    You save and borrow. This is all new to you?

    >Don't you think that by providing relief for the poor, more people would be in a position to risk their assets?

    No actually it decreases investment as money is stolen by the government from the productive.

    >The higher rate of entrepeneurship in countries with stronger walfare systems such as Norway,

    LOL! NORWAY? They can't even supply butter to their tiny population! Norway has the same population of Los Angeles. Nice try socialist.

    > Keeping the deficit low as your primary concern only benefits the rich who lent the money

    You don't read well do you?

    LIBERTY is my primary concern. Prosperity soon follows.

    >Romania is poor because throughout it's history it has always been exploited by foreign powers.

    LOL! What a poor little victim you are!

    Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Hungary and Poland have all be occupied at least as long as Romania but they are FAR more prosperous. Why?

    Because they followed ...

    Because they followed the American model of liberty and the rule of law.

    Romania is poor because Romania is socialist.

    Your country is the perfect example of failure.

    Want to help the poor? Promote capitalism.

    You realize that companies are sitting on a trillion dollars that they aren't investing? It doesn't look to me like giving the already successful more money is going to make them spend more.

    Romania is hardly socialist, and those countries you mentioned have all been part of great empires (some of which have even been responsible for our exploitation!)

    Wrong.

    All of them were occupied and treated far worse than Romania so your attempt at claiming victim's status has failed.

    Romania is poor because of corruption and leftism which seems to go hand in hand.

    Corporations are hoarding cash because it makes sense.

    Would you invest in this economy?
  • TheDrop FanOreilly 2012/03/06 15:27:16
    TheDrop
    I would argue that corruption goes hand in hand with power (and in capitalism, money is power).

    Companies aren't investing because consumers aren't buying. And why aren't people buying? Because they don't have enough money, since most of the wealth is concentrated in a small financial elite. Gee, it's almost like Marx was right about capitalism being self-contradictory!

    Communist countries are by far the most corrupt You have the rich and Poor, the rich are the ones running the party. the poor are well you and the rest. And unless you join and are accepted in the party you will always be poor.

    Capitalism, work hard, wisely invest your money and you too can be rich.

    Uncertainty, volatility and a climate of hostility toward investment by communists running the US government.

    The funniest thing about communism is that you commies have to live in the country you destroy unless you are a leader in the communist party then you live like a king while others starve.

    If you bring home $55,000 a year and your minimal liabilities are $67,000 what happens?

    If debt is good, why don't you move into a $400,000 home, buy a lexus for you and a new Ford f350 diesel 4x4 for your husband, a 36' cabin cruiser, 38' 5th wheel camper, a month long vacation, dress in the most expensive clothing labels?
