The inclination

 In the U.S. every mortage is in writng making it an animate object. It becomes a lien when recorded with the appropriate office.
Just as in past Republican coups (Nixon killing the Paris Peace Talks, Reagan arranging for the Iranian hostages to be returned after the election, Bush fabricating evidence to invade Iraq), the fear and misinformation that has been rampant and deliberate on the part of the Republican Party and its corporate backers has once again bamboozled the American Public to think UP is DOWN... and Big Media has been as complicit as any of the 'secret' donors to Republican candidates.
It is sheer demagoguery for ANY politician to claim that cutting taxes, cutting spending and cutting services is in the 'best interests' of ordinary Americans who are desperate, or that he/she is concerned about 'mortgaging our children's future' -- where is the concern when it comes to ensuring that all American children have a good education? Where is the concern that American citizens are adequately protected against predatory practices of banks? Where is the concern when Big Healthcare gouges American citizens with ballooning premiums, while making bigger profits than ever before? Why do these deficit hawks not question why banks have not yet increased availability to small business grants by small businesses (which is down some 13% from last year) - to help kickstart local economies?
Where is the accountability for the Republican agenda of 'trickle-down' economics for the enormous mess in which we find ourselves? Where is the acknowledgement that all their talk about the President's 'socialist' policies is an outright lie? - or do they truly believe that corporations and the very wealthy should NOT be part of our economic recovery by paying slightly higher taxes (MUCH lower than they did in the 20th Century)? Was the United States a 'socialist' country under Eisenhower?? And did Eisenhower 'mortgage our children's future' by implementing HUGE infrastructure upgrades, setting our path to an economic boom, and paying for it by taxing corporations and the wealthy at a rate much greater than what they pay now?
Do they truly believe that 'trickle-down' economics works? And, if so, why are they not URGING their backers to start 'trickling' NOW, since they're the only ones left with any money??
