In Obama's defense, it started with Bush. That being said, Obama is making Bush look like a Fiscal Conservative. lol.

I would love if this lead to Libertarian President.

My keyboard crapped out on me last night (works fine now for some reason :blink:), but I just wanted to say that I concur.

of course it did. it takes years for a debt like this to happen. not 2 months.

bush didn't start it either, and no clinton didn't even start it. this ball has been slowly rolling uphill (downhill, rather) for decades. but neither of them did anything to help stop it, and bush only helped to massively make it worse. realistically, we won't know what impact obama will have for at least a couple more years

Thats fair, when I posted that I was running on 3 hours of sleep so I wasn't completely straight in the head. lol

It didn't start with Bush, but he certainly didn't keep to his Fiscal Conservatism.

One of the biggest issues was when we were taken off the gold standard. A guy who really has been an economic prophet has been Peter Schiff.

I believe it was Kennedy who took us off of that. I'm not sure. Maybe Nixon.

Even though the price of gas has drastically inflated when related to the US Dollar & the Euro, there has been no difference when compared to the price of Gold.
