Spending and Tax Cuts Are the Only Solution to the Deepening Global Recession

As the U.S. GDP moves towards 100% in the next 18 months and is perhaps already at 130% if you include the unfunded liability of Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae, major cuts are inevitable.

Without a doubt, major austerity measures are coming to the U.S., which are likely to produce riots because of the massive amounts of social entitlements that have been promised over the past several decades.  

The question that remains is will Obama begin to face the recession or will he try to keep printing money and avoiding the big cuts until after his term? 

And if the conservative Republicans take control of the house and the senate in November as projected, they will most likely make the decision for Obama and start cutting government spending.

Or perhaps the crafty politicians will find a way to begin cutting spending while convincing the public that they are instead trying to stimulating the economy?  Perhaps they will do this by passing a few new stimulus bills while passing deeper spending cuts at the same time.

Here is an excellent video by Max Keiser about the subject:

In the end, cutting spending is the only solution and the longer we wait to start cutting the deeper the cuts are going to be.  As a political leader in the U.K. put it, “spending cuts now, or poverty later.”

If spending cuts are the solution and Democrats are incapable of cutting spending, then it doesn’t really matter what else they stand for, they are not electable as we are seeing in the primary elections. 

Because of this, embolden Democrat voters will be unable to vote for either party in November causing the voter turnout to drop by as much as 15 percent.

But then who will get the blame for the deepening recession and increase in unemployment that is sure to follow the spending cuts?  Will it be the leadership in Congress or the President?

How Capitalism Saved America

This book is an excellent presentation on the problems of government 'regulations' into free market mechanisms. This book illustrates simply and clearly how many chaotic economic problems were caused by interference from government regulations and how capitalism has overcome them. Master this book and you have overcome most of the bad economic thinking of our time. Government is the cause of capitalism failure.

What Has Government Done to Our Money?

Rothbard gives us an exceptionally clear, detailed description of what money is and how it has come to be manipulated by governments and central bankers into almost worthless inflationary fiat paper currency. He then explains how gold became the most respected and trustworthy currency of choice and the prospect of either hyperinflation or the greatest depression the world has ever seen may be arriving in the very near future.

Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

In discussions of today's economic meltdown and what to do about it, the Federal Reserve is a stealth helicopter: it never shows up on the radar. With the exception of a few esoteric specialists and those Ron Paul Revolutionaries who burst into chants of "Abolish the Fed!" Historian Thomas Woods notes in this important book, the Federal Reserve bears a large part of the blame for the mess we're in. In the first part of "Meltdown," Woods shows how both in theory and in practice, Fed policy fueled an artificial boom and is now leading us to a much larger meltdown.

Gardening When It Counts: Growing Food in Hard Times

The decline of cheap oil is inspiring an increasing number of North Americans to achieve some measure of backyard food self-sufficiency. In hard times, the family can be greatly helped by growing a highly productive food garden, requiring little cash outlay or watering. This book shows any family with access to 3-5,000 sq. ft. of garden land can halve their food costs.
