  •  Our Job Is to Vote for Politicians (4+ / 0-)

    Who care about the humans who live in this country.

    The politicians job is to implement policies that their constituents want.

    One admitted problem for these politicians is that their constituents often want conflicting things -- for example, lower taxes and expanded social services. Lower taxes and more war, etc. Politicians need to responsibly balance these demands.

    I get this.

    But the right thing to do now is to spend lots of money as stimulus to get the economy moving again.

    Spending is the only way this will happen. Austerity, budget cuts, tax breaks, etc., etc. will not have the intended effect.
