With all this talk about how to fix and how not to fix the economy, I'd like to remind everyone that the real reason why our economy is anemic is that we consume more than we produce as a country. It's simple accounting. Until we address the fundamentals of the US economy, tax rates and other fine tweaking don't matter. We can do this by using natural gas as a transportation fuel instead of oil, and we can protect domestic industries from currency manipulation in China. Does anyone have any thoughts on why none of our politicians have addressed the real problems facing this country?

Yes, there is too much money to be made by selling you goods from China. Golden Rule, people with the gold make the rules. This will continue until people finally get pissed off in numbers that will make a difference in the polls.

Stuff like that gives voters headaches if they even try to comprehend it. It's much easier to vote based on gay marriage and abortion.

Peter Schiff is talking about it. Pray he gets elected to the Senate in Conneticut.

If we don't buy China's cheap plastic crap, they won't buy our bonds. If they don't buy our bonds, US government is broke. Hoorah for Schiff!
