    It's still government intervention and it interferes with the natural course of the free market, yet you make excuses for it.

    Less then 20% of all funds have been spent. How on earth can that be a huge portion?

    Also, the State Aid was not supposed to be spent on Government or State employees. See the problem?

    Now I see what you are trying you think I do not think the Government should not have any role :lmao:. So you twist it around and try to have me say the Government should have no involvement. I understand the Government has a role in this country how much and what is a different story. I am not a guy that goes off have cocked wanting the Government disbanded from everything I am not stupid that just be anarchy. I just believe the Government role should be smaller. The FDIC does not prop up companies that are failing they take the ones that fail and dismantle them.

    The New Deal made things worse. I don't even know how this can be argued but I'm certain you will.

    18% of the Stimulus went to state aid, that is approximately 155 billion of the top of my head.

    Jobs were saved

    and that is just one state.

    Do you want to get rid of the Fed like Ron Paul?

    I don't know that Ron Paul wants to get rid of the Fed. I've only heard him say that he wants an audit of it, which is a very reasonable suggestion. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say a very necessary one.

    I believe he has stated he wanted to get rid of that or the IRS...maybe both.

    But he has also said that he knew that it would never happen IIRC.

    Stimulus was not supposed to go to state budgets to shore them up. Don't get it huh?

    I wonder what these job numbers would look like if we looked at them now? Unemployment is at 9.4 at latest count?

    In Washington, which is where I believe that article was written, the unemployement rate in March of 09 was 6.8%. Today it's 9.2%. Who's jobs, exactly, were saved Rat?

    Are you operating under the assumption it couldn't have been worse?

    OK. If that is what he said, that's fine. I simply stated that I didn't know if that was his position or not. I don't read his FaceBook.

    However, if Ron Paul thinks it should go, then I'd imagine that their is a pretty good reason for it. Ron Paul is a politician that I have a great deal of respect for. I don't think he's in it to screw us. I could be wrong but those are my feelings on Ron Paul.

    And the gold standard?:lmao:

    There may be a reason for it, but I sincerely doubt it is a good reason.

    My answer it could have been worse. But do you think so?

    My answer to you is that it is worse. The Stimulus has not helped IMO. The money has not been put back into the economy, as was promised. It is worse.

    The fact that you doubt it does not make it a bad idea.

    You are patently wrong. It was promised to be a two year program.
