Re: “The ruin of Reaganomics

for Thomas Pope.......clap, clap,clap,.....well stated. Some people are in love with the power of an over reaching Federal government, and I'm not sure there is any help for them. They can't see the bigger issues which taken to their core, revolve around the most basic of liberties guaranteed by the Constitution. They only think "the rich need to pay more" class envy BS. I'm by no means rich, barely middle class, but the principles espoused by Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, and other great minds of the American Revolution are 100% still valid today, but it seems many have not come to the realization of the importance of them. Some people may have been born just a little late to be such fans of socialism, the nationalist kind.

Re: “The ruin of Reaganomics

The idea that the government taking more money from one group to give to another is going to make things better is ludicrous. The government spends money at a rate that even if we took all the "rich" people's money, it would not be enough.

First of all, to me this is not a question of rich vs. poor, Democrat vs. Republican, conservative vs. liberal....it is a question of taxpayer vs. government. The federal government is too big and spends too much money, am I correct? The federal government spends money on things it is not supposed to and that is fact. 18 things are outlined in the Constitution that the .gov is supposed to do, NOTHING MORE! The states can do these other things, as stated in the 10th amendment. So why doesn't the government just stop spending our money on these things that are ultimately unconstitutional? Less federal government means lower taxes which then translates into more money available to be put to use and taxed on a local level. We are more likely to have a say so in the way our tax money is spent if the government is local. Our representation in the House of Representatives has been limited to 435 since 1913, each Rep now has @700,000 people to represent, making your voice much less likely to be heard. Bring the money back to our cities and let locals decide how to spend it, rather than begging Washington for our slice of the pie. If we don't follow the limits on the power of the .gov..where does this power stop? Where is the line it does not cross? Our government was not set up or intended to be the massive , money hungry monster that continues to expand and seep into every crevice it can fill in our economy and daily lives. The decentralization of power is the answer to many of our governmental and economic problems.
Krugman is no longer an economist, but just another liberal mouthpiece who tries to explain that the government taking our money is a good thing. There is no Tea Party manifesto, unless you want to take time to read the Constitution.

Re: “The ruin of Reaganomics

Clearly, economics is not a strong point for you. Since taxes are such great thing, why doesn't the government just take 100% of my income? They know how to spend my money soooo much more efficiently than I. Command economies do...not...work. With the federal government sucking vast quantities of money from the economy, there is less money for investment in private enterprise. How many shirts do you have with Che on them? Since Reaganomics was so much worse than Carternomics, why don't you extol the virtues of Obananomics instead of digging up the economic policies of a dead president. The federal government is doing things not mentioned in the 18 enumerated powers in the Constitution, so lets cut those things out first before we get to raising taxes. Liberals, it's all about feelings "who needs what"our nation was built on laws, not needs, and the productive working members of society are tired of being salves to the recipients of the product of government theft. I can't wait until 2012, when the Democrats lose the Senate and the Presidency, and I'm not even a Republican.
