A word on Bush's "Economic Stimulus"

I have a very simple concern with the new "Economic Stimulus" coming from the White House:

Where are they going to get $145,000,000.00 to just hand out?

If giving it to us now is such a good idea why did they collect it from us in the first place?

"Supply-siders" (followers of the so-called "Reaganomics") defend less progressive tax burdens, claiming that money kept by the wealthiest will trickle down into the economy. That sounded fine, but economics proved that it wasn't so, but it is still a cornerstone of Republican economic policy, until now!

Republicans want to give money to everybody!

My obvious complaint is that the government does not have this money to just give out. They are going to print it anyways, and thus will steal from everybody by creating inflation. The joke is on you if you think this money is a gift. It has been stolen, even if from just fractions of pennies so that you will think that a politician can actually influence the business cycle.

"What do you mean we're out of money? We still have checks." -Ronald Reagan

That is exactly why the dollar is declining and commodities whose values are posted against it (oil, gold, copper, etc.) have risen dramatically in price. If the sovereignty of our currency is a concern to you then vote for Ron Paul, as he is the only simpleton who understands that you can't pay for shit if you don't have money.
