Re: What does the evidence show?
The US is truly split into two demographics; those who acknowledge reality and those like Trump and all of Trump's followers who simply deny reality.
This doesn't sound right. I agree that the US is nearly evenly split between conservatism and liberalism, but I do not see 47% of the people as being either pro-Trump nor in denial of reality. I am a moderate Conservative-leaning idealogue. I am no fan of Trump. And I would say that many of you deny basic aspects of reality.
  • You fail to understand money and global finance. When I say that there will be a major correction and that the dollar is on the ropes, you shrug and ask me how and why that matters. It is almost as if you welcome globalism and world governance that does not involve the United States...except as a 2nd tier power merely equal to a room full of others. But reality says that there will always be a leader. Does your disdain for Trump mean that you label nearly half the people as delusional?

  • jar always has claimed that "the bill will get paid" but does anyone understand the global implications of this? It almost seems as if you accept it without protest. The 47% of the people whom you claim are out of touch with reality will likely roar back with a vengeance once the financial correction takes place and wakes them up.

    Besides, jar I thought you were a bit of a conservative. What happened?

    It's true that conservatives tend to be a bunch of gutless wonders who can't do it.

    Can't do what?

    Re: What does the evidence show?
    I honestly think (and likely even hope) that the bill gets defaulted and bankrupted (or even inflated) away rather than simply paid through tax increases.

    This whole idea that raising taxes will pay it is clearly false. The total net wealth of the top 2% of taxpayers totals roughly 4 trillion dollars.

    In today's terms that is roughly one year's deficit. Owing nearly 29 trillion, the bill is effectively unpayable. Inflating the debt away is the best solution. The alternative is to trash the wealth of the middle class. And this means each and every one of *you* here at EvC.
