Do Americans realize how much of a hole we're in?
Did you know the Fed pumped more money into the system in one year than what the Federal government collects in taxes in a year and we're still just plodding along. Do Americans realize that the baby boom boom has gone bust? Demographics, deleveraging and deflation will keep us depressed for a long time.

Our debt to GDP was considerably worse after WWII and we don't even remember a recession during that period. That's because Truman was out front with well targeted stimulus for both the US and Europe.

It has little, if anything, to do with boomers. Boomers became educated, got jobs and worked hard. The generations after them have become entitlement babies. That is ruining our economy.

I realize we are in a BIG hole. I mean it's a bad economy with Obama as president and it will reflect the rich if Romney is elected. The federal government is messed up too with all the laws they make now a days. Along with a bad economy on they're end as well.
