Cut, Cap And Balance Is The Best Plan For The Debt Ceiling

Bill Walton

If we walk away from the negotiating table we'll miss a historic opportunity to shrink government.

s we watch the drama surrounding the debt ceiling and a possible U.S. default play out in Washington, it calls to mind what the late economist Milton Friedman once said, "There are two types of money in this world: my money and your money."

Our political leaders have put the taxpayers of this country (you and me) on a crash course toward economic disaster, but as you listen to them, you don't hear much about their personal ownership of the problem. After all, they're negotiating with our money, not theirs. Their currency is re-election, politics as usual.

  1. It's really very simple- the rich have declared war on the rest of us. There's too much talk about entitlement cuts. I know what that means - the middle class gets hosed again. There's not too much talk from these 'fiscally responsible' members of congress and the administration about slicing the military budget (at least in half) or ending subsidies to the wealthy. It's war, all right and my bank account is telling me who's winning.

  2. 1:32 well said.

    The bankster owned puppets won't cut the Empire wars because war is the elite's most profitable venture.

    Here we are in 2011 and the sheeple are every bit as deluded about wars as they were in the 60s.

    War is a racket. Started by the financial elite for their benefit.

    A troop fights for a banker's profits. Nothing more nothing less. He/she gets a stub leg while the banksters enjoy their Theatre of War that rains down billions of pure profit.

  3. Important people who speak out with the truth about war are assassinated, heart attacked, or suicided.

    Talk about anything, but not peace. Cut off the bread lines, but not the ammo lines.

    There are trillions of dollars, but even more important, social control at stake.

    Fear. Fear. Fear. Frame brown people for killing 3000k and then go slaughter a million. God bless the USA, this is God's country you know. God is on our side. We are the good guys. They are the bad guys. They are trying to steal our freedoms.

    Could anything be so ridiculous and sad?

    We live in a matrix of childish lies taken in as absolute truths.
