|Temporary solutions are not solutions, they are duct tape and chewing gum on a machine that is falling apart. When your car has a hole in the gas tank, how long will the tape last? Eventually, the hole will become larger, and temporary solutions will fail faster and faster.|
If I used money the same way the US government did, I would have lost my house, my car, and would be living on the street in a cardboard box and a blanket. The real solutions are to cut all discretionary and special interest spending. Do not raise taxes, it is completely unnecessary. The government is not making too little money, they are spending too much. Replace rather than reform the tax code. There are tens of thousands of pages of tax code, which makes more and more loopholes. Make it simple. It should probably cover less than a page. Bring the military home, we are not the world police, and should not be the world police. We are simply making people around the world angry with us, it has caused problems (9/11), and will cause more in the future. Reform or replace the federal reserve, audit them, and give them more supervision.
Doing all of this will remove the government from the private sector and alleviate a lot of stress on the economy. It will give the market more freedom and more breathing room, and activity will pick up. Big government with big money causes big problems as history has shown us. We need less regulation, less power, and less control.
