Preface: Remember what the Founding Fathers said about partisan soap operas.
While partisans focus on specific things the other side is doing – “Obamacare” and the “debt ceiling” are the buzzwords of the day – the truth is that we wouldn’t be in this budget crisis in the first place if the government hadn’t engaged in bipartisan idiocy by:
- Killing the Golden Goose of the internet economy – by far the strongest section of the U.S. economy – through mass surveillance, which directly harms internet companies, Silicon Valley, California … and the entire U.S. economy (Facebook lost 11 millions users as of April mainly due to privacy concerns … and that was before the Snowden revelations)
- Encouraging American businesses to move abroad for decades, sucking money out of the U.S. economy and injecting it into foreign economies
