The biggest question involving common political and economic sense recently posed? Topic: Ways of solving economic problem

Question: Barely, I recall a time when the 'popular', conservative assumption of increasing the National debt was seen as a way to insure international stability via the distribution of our wealth, debt, dollar value- I'm also certain that the 'Rush-meister' also promoted such a similar economic mythology whose predecessors may be found in Trickle Down Theory (Voodoo economics), etc. Why in the name of a mysterious and unknowable entity is this fundamental belief that has survived beyond reason still even entertained anymore? What happened to pay as you go taxation and why in the entities name did we ever abandon this fundamental reality of simple economics? I can understand Obama's need to prop up what already failed grossly and in nearly every way possible at the end of the Bush, double-the-national-debt-for-no- reason, regime, but why then is there virtually no effort made to solve this problem by the most obvious means and yes, this means increasing taxation- not as a measure of government manipulation but one of ultimate and economic responsibility? A fairly simple question in essence. Obviously one must generalize, particularly here- please try and read between the lines and address the general intent of the question, however crudely it may be stated. Not really asking for a dressing down. The question becomes, as they say, would you rather be manipulated by debt? Hope that I haven't said too much. Is it too much to expect one intelligent answer- a prime example of over stating a cause, BTW. Please ignore this if it offends you in any way. Yes, thank you, #1, but in what way, aside from the obvious excuse of,"its' not very popular"- no **** its' not very popular, **** that idiocy anyway, can you in any way explain the vast mount of denial and obvious self delusion clearly demonstrated by our current practices that would include their needless continuation in spite of all the laws of reality, need I mention the most basic economic principles? Sorry, thanks Amber, Its' just, The Entity be damned, the most obvious solution is often the only one available OK, how about someone owning up to this reality rather than merely denying that it ever existed in the first place? Common, your economists of a sort, right? Oops. Correction,'the most obvious one...' I state one thing and almost immediately its' placed in the wrong order, try to reconstruct the original however flawed, as best as you can- this may appear initially for no particular reason- like, "No, I forgot the condom." "Hello, my name is Tom",etc.

I'm not really sure what the question is, but I'm assuming it is something like "why don't we try to fix the national debt by increasing taxation, reducing spending, etc?" That's a fair question....hopefully I've interpreted your writing correctly. Honestly, the main reason that we don't balance the budget via increased taxes is political. No politician likes to raise taxes, even if they believe in balanced budgets. And few politicians have the backbone to do it. Even if they did, they would be voted out of office quickly, and the next guy would lower taxes again to appease the masses. Now, there are some semi-legitimate reasons for running a national deficit at times, but there is no valid reason for running a debt like we have (and like most of Europe is now embroiled in). Rather than demanding a balanced budget year in and year out, it might be better to require a balanced 5-year budget (or 4-year budget to coincide with the President's term or something)....so that fiscal policy could still be brought to bear on recessions. This would allow the government to stimulate the economy during downturns, but would require that they make up the deficit during their other years in office. I think that's a reasonable idea, but getting it passed (via an Amendment to the Constitution most likely) would be damn near impossible. Anyway, I'm not sure why we originally abandoned the idea of balanced budgets, but it sure doesn't seem like a great idea right now.

you won't be able to! i grow to be incredibly intelligent as a baby yet lacked hassle-unfastened sense! i'm fortunate i'm alive. i do no longer understand whilst, yet all of surprising I had all sorts of hassle-unfastened sense...might have befell in simple terms as I caught that fork into the outlet, or as quickly as I checked the mowers gasoline point via finding in the tank with a lit journey to work out greater effective! or in simple terms in all hazard as quickly as I left the lid down on the gasoline grill then lite it after the gasoline grow to be on for a jiffy. i easily enjoyed those eyebrows and neglected them dearly! yet i'm feeling plenty greater effective now! particular I did do all of that silly stuff and lived, so i assume that if tou make it previous 12 or so your hassle-unfastened sence kinda in simple terms kicks in till you hit sixteen. Then all bets are off returned!

The US system is stacked against third parties and it generally takes a catastrophe like the divide between small federal government and large federal government (late 1850s) to bring down a party (last case, the Whigs) and replace it with another (Republicans) and even then, most Republicans were former Whigs. Admirable idea, though.

This is the first time that a 3rd party has a really good shot. Most of your ideas are OK but I am not sure America is ready for them. I think that the abortion law would not help much. People used hangers and risked there life before so they would again. Or they could go to another country to get one. It would be unreasonable. Not that I believe people should get them but we do have an over population problem as it is. Also you would have to decide if the morning after pill was like an abortion and decide to outlaw that. I understand what your saying about different races and different categories and we all should just be Americans but then it would take the some ones right away from them to be called what they want. Also the reason people in movies make so much is because of sales and marketing. Are you going to put a limit on sales and marketing so they don't make as much as teachers? There are many people in sales that make more then teachers, many of them have to be away from home for long periods and have extreme sacrifice. I think that we should have a group in each state who find out what the people want in there state and local communities. Having open debates and voting on what they want. People in some communities might need one thing more then other communities. We need to get actual working American people involved, not just the political ones.
