Ok, talking with Republicans I have found out the ideal economy. After the Republicans killed the minimum wage increase the discussion went on to the
perfect repuiblican economy, and here it is.
Slave wakes up, eats food he got out of a dumpster, goes to work for 15 hours, goes to a cardboard box thrown out by the compnay he slaves for, eats
food he got out of a dumpster, sleeps, repeat. All these tvs, computers, cars, gas, everything is made, but no one can buy it. Slaves made the
products, but being slaves, have no money. Sure the car only costs 200 dollars, the 62 inch flat big plasma screen tv only costs 10 dollars, but
nobody has money, so even if you only charge 1 penny, still nothing sold for the slaves have no money. All businesses go bankrupt for they sold
nothing, making no money, for no one had money. This is how the republicans wish the world would be.
Worker wakes up, eats, goes to work for 8-10 hours at 100$ a hour, goes home, watches tv, plays on pc, chats on ATS chat, eats, watches a movie,
sleep. He has money, he makes 100$ an hour. He has a car, house, tv, food, a life. Sure gas costs 30$ a gallon, but he can afford it. Sure the car
costs 35,000$, but he can afford it with a loan like everyone else does. Yes, things cost more, BUT PEOPLE CAN AFFORD IT! And if they can afford it,
they will buy it, making the company money. If you sell a burger for 5 cents, but no one has money, no burgers will be sold. If you sell a burger
for 10$ and people make 10X that in an hour, they will buy that on a lunch break or when in a hurry.
Also, when Clinton was in power we had the largest surplus ever, the greatest economy ever. With Bush? Largest deficit, worse economy since the
Great Deprssion, if not worse in some cases. Gee, give me democrat!
