Nostradamouse;3281702Learn your history, Bakunin and Marx haven't really been friends. They were in the beginning, but the relationship kind of changed when Bakunin saw Marx policies.

You can get free online versions of those books, just check the link I posted.

Learn my history? I just learned about Marx the other day. I can't be hurried. :p

Perhaps the U.S. government should be making a profit... ... 'cause they have a 9 trillion dollar debt they're trying to pass onto the next generation.

Like I said, they should be getting as close to breaking even as possible. I think a few hundred thosand worth in debt is acceptable. A couple tens of thosand would be better. Breaking even exactly would be the best, though unrealistic.

What I find funny is that other countries allowed us to get a 9 trillion dollar debt. You would think at at a trillion or so dollars they would say "Uh... I don't think we gonna loan you no more money." And besides, what ar they gonna do about it:naughty:

Trudeau did the same thing that commie bastard. The USA seriously needs to do some trimming in its budget to make room for the war.

Here, the government has announced a $11 billion surplus. Of that, $8 billion went to improving institutions, the schools, hospitals especially., etc. There's a debate over what the remaining $3 billion should go to. The Finance Minister says it should go to paying of the national debt, with possible tax cuts in 2008. The opposition National party says it should go to tax cuts now, and tax cuts later.

The trouble is, if that debt isn't dealt with, the nation's credit rating will most probably drop, and the debt will continue to damage the nation's economy, more so than what the current tax level is doing. What do you think?

The budget ballooned under Mulroney, not Trudeau. There's sort of a difference between running up a 150 billion debt during a recession while implementing universal health care, other social initiatives, and a new constitution, and running up 4 trillion in debt on a questionable war and even more questionable home fiscal policies. And "that commie bastard" is on of Canada's most popular Prime Ministers... And as for trimming the American budget, well... suggest where they should start.

Every cent that Mulroney spent into debt went to paying off the interest that Trudeau gave us. Had it not been for Trudeau, Mulroney would have had a balanced budget. Though he probably could have done more.

And "that commie bastard" is on of Canada's most popular Prime Ministers...

So freaking what?

I never got to vote for those those things that you mentioned, how is it fair for me to have to pay for them?

And as for trimming the American budget, well... suggest where they should start.

WarHawk109;3281422Surpluses are a sign that the gov't is taxing us too much.

Deficits are a sign that the government isn't taxing you enough. ;) I would rather my government produced a surplus at the end of the year then increased a debt.

No, it's a sign that they are spending too much.

And I would rather my gov't keep a balanced budget.

Let's just say that it's a combination of both.

[quote=WarHawk109;3282029] And I would rather my gov't keep a balanced budget.

Who wouldn't want this? I wish that they could do this, but at times it's just not reasonable.

What I'd like the US government to do is to be able to run a surplus, and be able to keep store the money away for a rainy day.
