|What if we paid for our wars with the world at the time we start them? That way the country would know the true cost of them!!! No more accounting tricks to hide these massive expenses. Wouldn't that be reasonable? Sort of like a public loan application.

Perhaps with the finances open to public scrutiny, we could actually see how much money stopped coming in to the US budget from the Bush tax cuts. Remember how this genius cut our country's income at the same time he was exploding her debt with his wars in the middle east?
Instead, the GOP shell game is being played with unlimited advertising dollars. It wasn't fiscal incompetence that got the US into this mess. What are they telling us caused this? Pension plans for workers, your kid's teacher's salary, medicine for the poor people and the elderly, military retirement payments, etcetera.
And the masses eat it up not realizing their golden years are on the chopping block. Their social security, their medicare, their prescription drug bills are all in the wealthiest ruling elite crosshairs.
The rich will get richer and the peasants will be occupied with social wedge issues to keep their idle minds and hands occupied.
