Because first, we are already awake. Second, your assumption that the "current government has us on a path to ruin" is fully unfounded. It is a gameplan that you have not seen before, being played in the most extreme of circumstance. There are dynamics in this particular time/condition that simply require a direction that is different. And taxcuts and deficit spending won't do it.
We are, right now only at the first step. There will be more steps, some monitary, some regulatory that will need to be taken but for you to assume that the "current government has us on a path to ruin" is not based on fact, history or analysis.
We were wide awake with the first abortion of a bailout plan and congress still passed it.
There is a difference between "Government" and "Administration." I still stand by my assertion that the current Government has us on a path to ruin. It is not unfounded as it has been proven most recently, with the first Bailout plan. Government intervention has the POSSIBILITY of reducing the effects of a recession. The problem is that the LIKELIHOOD of the Government making the economic situation worse is exponentially higher.
This has been shown through the ages and in fact just read the news, read your own posts, and then try to show us how Obama is going to be any different than any other politician?
It isn't going to happen. Get your money out now, buy Gold, and hunker down is probably the best course of action at the moment.
Who's John Galt.
