But you can't cut domestic spending at the same rate...people will starve and die on the streets. This isn't Sim City...this is the real world.
No. People won't die. Nice knee-jerk.
People will just have to relearn how to live without government.
Government isn't the solution to the problem, government is the cause of the problem!
People WILL die on the streets because there is no more manufacturing base here in the ole usa. The reason is over-regulation and lack of tariffs.
It IS simple since we have been running trade deficits with china in the trillions each year, which means tax revenue is going to china and making
china strong rather than america. American companies are backstabbing america and the government allows or encourages such behavior because wall
street investors like that.
You can't be friends with everyone because there is such thing as conflicting interests at some point. Wise decisions need to be made with sound
logic and determination. Neither republicans or democrats seem capable because they get their campaign money from them.
Once there are plenty of jobs in america taxable income goes up and the need for social welfare goes down. This what some people refer to catch 22
