    The Republican way to fix the economy

    1) eliminate all business taxes since they are passed on to consumers, but nevertheless distract business a lot. The GE tax return takes 1000 people to prepare, for example.

    2) eliminate unions since they drive jobs off shore with higher wages

    3) eliminate minimum wage laws

    4) ship illegal workers home to instantly create 10 million jobs and upward pressure on wages

    5) cut health care costs in half and increase quality by making health care competitive capitalist.

    6) make inflation illegal so businesses and people can make economic plans and not waste time energy and money on things like gold and silver.

    7) make Social Security private so 15% of American's pay will be put into savings, and then investments, rather than wasted on current consumption as it is now.

    8) make all able bodied Americans work by making some entitlements such as food stamps, and unemployment private so people are consuming their own savings

    9) make accounting transparent so all can see inside any business and compare it to any other business. This one is important but will be way over the liberals head.

    10) make the costs and profits of all financial transactions crystal clear and comparable

    11) ??

    1) Double military spending, start some new wars

    2) Make token cuts to some small areas while simultaneously creating huge new goverment bureaucracies

    3) Implement No Child Left Unmolested Act

    4) Berate China as the cause of all economic woes while borrowing their money to finance everything

    Haven't the right, scratch.

    Removing people doesn't create jobs, it just makes them available to people you didn't ship off. Correct plan: eliminate all limits on immigration except security issues (i.e. terrorist connections or serious criminal history).

    Cut health care costs by two halves and stop bothering medical professionals and companies.

    Stop printing money that hasn't been physically destroyed. i.e. a constant capital pool.

    Let the wealth of the world grow while our currency is like a pie. We will have instant accurate access to the change in wealth in the world while at the same time guaranteeing no inflation because that would be impossible unless the net GDP goes to zero.

    Remove social security and all such unjustifiable organizations. Something doesn't become moral just because a CEO is in charge.

    Quote Originally Posted by Brutus View Post

    Abolish all immoral entitlements such as food stamps and unemployment pay so that people's rights are respected. It is not your business who works and who doesn't.

    =Brutus;4313239) make accounting transparent so all can see inside any business and compare it to any other business. This one is important but will be way over the liberals head.
    Let businesses be free to do what ever the hec they want and keep what ever secrets they want. Let those who wish to have investors be transparent to them.

    If you think the shite you post is substance then you truly are as stupid as you appear. You haven't offered anything except insults and stupidity , and without evidence to back up anything you say. You even ignore history or make up your own versions.. Anyone who thinks Jefferson was a conservative is ignorant.

    Obama's economy is in the toilet. Unemployment just rose to 9.1% (after he said it wouldn't go above 8% if we passed his stimulus). Black unemployment in May was at 16.2% (how's that Obama Hope and Change working out for you folks? Make sure you vote more black liberals into office!). And according to the Washington Post unemployment among black teens is nearly 50%. The housing market is in the crapp*r, inflation is rising, we're $14.4 trillion in debt, and manufacturing is down. And all that is just the tip of the iceberg.

    And you were one of the people who put these Obama imbeciles in office. That's why you bedwetting liberals are dangerous.

    Brutus if you end up with this guy on your side that is a powerful indication that you should probably consider revising you argument.

    Let's not forget your boy Bush put us here.. Obama may not be getting us out of this mess at the moment but then again your Teabag party and the GOP are standing in the way of progress.. It's The GOP/Teabaggers who are the dangerous ones, that is a fact ....

    You're deluded, as usual. We're already in the tank and your Obama drunken sailor spending has only made things worse. Not only that but you're still trying to blame Bush and now anyone but Obama. Amazing.

    You people are zombies.

    When you put the liberal clowns in charge, don't be surprised when a circus breaks out.
