Ten Years to Greece

"Things are OK in the same sense that a house that is massively
overmortgaged can still be a nice-looking house. ... But there comes a
point when the bills are due, and we've reached that point."

Why Washington Is Shocked, Shocked By Newt Gingrich's Rise Over Mitt Romney

The idea of reversing federal growth is fine to keep on the wish list,
but those who advocate it seriously are seen as rubes—either new
arrivals in Washington who just fell off a turnip truck or
unsophisticated congressmen from 'flyover country.' To be a true
Beltway Republican is to have accepted the assumption that the scope
of government cannot be radically altered. And they think it is
politically foolish to try.

Herman Cain Suspends His Presidential Campaign

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/04/us/politics/herman-cain-suspends-his-presidential-campaign.html

... I am deeply disappointed. Anyone can steer a ship when the seas
are calm. You can measure a man by how he handles adversity, and his
determination to not give up.

The best candidate remaining by far, to deal with the excesses of
government, is Ron Paul, but he is very unlikely to win. He only has
about 2% support.

That leaves us with a bunch of other candidates with baggage either
personally or politically. I really felt that Cain was the right
choice. Although he was far from perfect, his heart was in the right
place. He was willing to stand up for what he believed in, and not
take fuzzy positions like Romney or Gingrich.

We live in a time when the country could seriously drive off a cliff
built out of debt. In response to this, the right has become more
libertarian, but other than Ron Paul, we lack a candidate who really
believes it. Maybe Michele Bachmann believes it, but she has come
across as too religious and not practical, and therefor has failed to
find a following.

...This sounds great if you think that government is smarter at spending our money than we are.  China has grown so much because they started at the bottom and moved away from socialism, not toward it.  The author is an idiot.
