low interest doesnt hurt

    Reason so many socialist policies are attractive is because of the low interest environment. Borrow and borrow some more because it doesnt hurt. Fiscal responsibility and debt repayments are dirty words. Conservative governments have no chance in this environment as the the populace desires their debt hit just like addicts.

    Conservatives will get their chance and it will come when interest goes up, AAA is lost and jobs are gone. Yes banana territory. And we are talking at least a trillion dollars in debt. To put it in clintonesque language "its the economy stupid"
