Spending all the money on military driven empire building didn't work for the Mongolians, Germany, England, France... Russia wasted time lives and money in Afghanistan and US did the same with Vietnam - but we will prove once and for all that it's possible if you just keep at it.

Unless we go broke first, kind of like we are.

But think of the reward - you get to take care of other nations for god knows how long once you "win" over there

But I'm sure if we just throw more money at the people who already have money, they will wave their magic wands and create demand somehow...

any day now.

If massive deficit military spending was good enough to defeat the USSR, it's good enough to defeat us.

What are you, some kind of commie?

Uhh..according to my dad prices/inflation were higher in the early 80's than they are today. And interest rates were sky high...good for buying bonds and shit, but very bad for mortgages/car loans etc..

And Gibsy is right, those were different times...

I can only speak for myself, but I'm pretty sure Romney isn't a real threat to take the Whitehouse..

edit- and not so much thinking Obama has done a piss poor job, just holding him up to the same standards that Bush was....and blaming him for the same things.

He's gonna be a lot more threatening if the economy doesn't start looking good real soon

Just changing the office of President is not going to make any sort of immediate impact on the state of the economy.
