Right, because GW Bush never practiced austerity but instead practiced fiscal recklessness and was aided by Alan Greenspan's monetary recklessness.

á That's what I said. áYou almost sound as if you're disagreeing that austerity didn't cause this mess.

Let's go over it again to be clear. áAusterity didn't get us into this mess. áAusterity is just your excuse for why it hasn't been fixed. áEven though there still hasn't been any austerity. áUnless someone thinks spending $500 billion dollars more every year is "austerity." á

But most of the politicians who've wanted austerity since 2009 are the ones who wanted fiscal recklessness and no regulation before then. áAusterity, which obviously includes $500B deficits in times of high unemployment and no inflation, has kept the US economy from recovering much faster than it has, and the more severe austerity practiced by Germany and European Central Bank has put that continent into a second recession.

I just want to say I'd support an amendment to redefine citizenship to remove the crazy birth thing.

What if they were all from English-speaking Canadian families?

I'd rather require every adult, whether they were born her or immigrated legally or illegally, be required to take the citizenship test, and if they failed they'd have to leave the US. We'd end up with a population that's smarter and more loyal than we have now.

I would be fine witháMexican born Salma Hayek being allowed to stay in the US as long as she wants andáCanadian born Justin Bieber being sent back.
