OK, and the is the core of our differences


you believe that the economics will correct themselves with the "invisible hand" of macroeconomics, I see the economics going drastically in the other direction, with fewer and fewer opportunities for the average person. And I believe it is the government's responsibility to see after the "welfare" of the people, as it says in the constitution. I see it because of the macro economic realities of economies of scale and the computer digital revolution of not just commerce, but of the civilization. So I don't see it as who can afford or not afford any part of the promises, we are a very wealthy nation, and it is a question of the distribution of wealth, not how it is distributed. So the fact that much of the current budget is already in areas that used to be labeled "socialism" (social security, medicare) are the biggest items, and I don't believe that getting rid of them is good for the country in general. Add in highways, education, infrastructure, health, and I wonder where those entitlements you worry about really exist in the budget. Welfare as you speak of it, primarily in employment insurance, isn't that big a deal.
