    Then many of you will get the economic problems Republicans always have when in the Oval Office.

    Sorry, but I will not take your bet because you have a sure winner for you.

    Every Republican administration since World War I has presided over a recess – some more than one – or a depression. Democratic recessions have been rare.

    Those include 1937-38 when FDR reduced government spending to “balance the budget” on conservative whining: Harry Truman after WWII when government spending was reduced about 60%, millions of Americans left their government jobs in the military or civilian support roles and much of the economy shut down to switch from wartime production to peacetime production; and Jimmy Carter when Iran imposed an oil embargo on the US for allowing the deposed shah to come here for cancer treatment.

    A Republican recession; almost as certain as the sun rising each morning.

    Remember when the unemployment rate nationwide has been dropping steadily for the past seven years. I do.

    What you say is total nonsense. What you claim are the only function of the US government was the Articles of Confederation. It failed in less that one decade leading to the United States Constitution that has many more functions. Try studying it.

    We didn’t vote the Winter Olympics out in ’76. The vote was not to use taxpayer money for the Olympics; the Olympics and its sponsors could have paid for it. They decided to skedaddle.

    The $20 trillion national debt was created by the perpetual debt machine created by Ronald Reagan. His tax cuts created debt as did his tax increases. His additional defense spending created debt as did not spending surplus payroll-tax money. And paying interest on the debt also increases the debt.

    Here’s a breakdown of those 96 million out of the workforce:

    Retired, 60 million;
    In college, 20 million;
    Incacerated, 2.5 million;
    Stay-at-home housewives (or husbands), 10.5 million;
    A few drawing unemployment.

    And the $1.4 trillion deficit left by George W. Bush has been reduced to a fraction of where it started and continues to go down.

    Not true

    There were 55 delegates at the First Continental Congress that adopted the Declaration of independence and 55 at the Constitutional Convention, Of the first 55 only six were at the second. Two different groups.

    And where did you get your weird understanding of the Constitution?

    Worked for Elizabeth Warren, who was blocked from heading the new consumer protection agency she created so she ousted a Republican senator to join the Senate to give the GOP nightmares.

    It’s not Republicans who have abandoned any pretense of democracy. It;s conservatives, and that goes back way beyond the formation of the Republican Party.
    During the war of Independence 50,000 Tories abandoned the colonies to side with Great Britain. Only conservative icon Benedict Arnold is remembered as a traitor.
    When the Constitution was written conservatives at the convention refused to sign it.
    Conservative slave states tried to destroy the union in the 1860s to preserve slavery forever.
    Conservatives tried to prevent FDR from overcoming the Great Depression, preserve democracy,save capitalism and prevent a Marxist revolution.
    Conservatives tried to prevent the protection of rights for all Americans in the 1960s, a century after the Constitution promised equal rights for all persons..
    Conservatives have always been the enemy of the United States.
