    Good plan or time to choose a different rallying cry?
    If you think "Make It In America" should be replaced by something else for 2011-2012, what would you propose instead?

      "Ethics Above the Rest"

      Lol, sorry I think all politicians need an ethics cleansing. smile Not to be mistaken for a colon cleansing.

      How about  "For the People, Renewing America's Vitality"

        Or

        "A Promise and Commitment to Rebuild"

        There are several areas we need rebuilt starting with our own relations.

        There is so much to be done. Sort of feel like we need to change. We are supposed to own this eh? And in fact we do! All the debt, all the rage, all the unemployment, poverty, ignorance, and bigotry... it's ours. As far as slogans go...How about..."Pick a spot!"  Pick one thing... and go to work and make it better!

          I have a question.  If both parties are against the deficit and since Congress is the only body that can vote on spending, why do we have a deficit?

    Ronald Reagan.
    "Deficits don't matter as long as it's going to tax cuts."
    Daddy Bush called it "Voodoo" economics.

    tax cuts for wealthy. unfunded wars. unfunded mandates. unfunded give-aways to seniors.....

    "David Stockman—the Reagan administration's point man in the fight for supply-side economics who proved when it came to deficit issues to be even more conservative than the fortieth president – has weighed in on the matter.

    What does this architect of Reaganomics say?

    "Republicans used to believe that prosperity depended upon the regular balancing of accounts—in government, in international trade, on the ledgers of central banks and in the financial affairs of private households and businesses, too. But the new catechism, as practiced by Republican policymakers for decades now, has amounted to little more than money printing and deficit finance—vulgar Keynesianism robed in the ideological vestments of the prosperous classes," Stockman writes in a lengthy analysis of the current economic condition published Sunday in The New York Times. "This approach has not simply made a mockery of traditional party ideals. It has also led to the serial financial bubbles and Wall Street depredations that have crippled our economy. More specifically, the new policy doctrines have caused four great deformations of the national economy, and modern Republicans have turned a blind eye to each one."
