Of course it does, and has. The Keynesian model has NEVER worked. The problem with the economy is government involvement. A true free market economy works it's own issues out, government "solutions" just make things worse, giving unfair advantages to big corporations who've bought and paid for the government regulators who are supposed to "fix" everything. Think about it: truly intelligent money-minded folk aren't working dayjobs for the fucking GOVERNMENT. They're in the private sector making millions or billions of dollars. The government regulators are the less intelligent economists who are easily outmaneuvered and manipulated by their much smarter private sector counterparts.
The government is corrupt and incompetent. It doesn't make anything better, in fact it makes things significantly worse. Always has. American capitalists are too smart, which is why they've bought and paid for these elected officials before they've even entered office.
As for Obama cutting spending, no he isn't. He's going to spend trillions more on his socialist programs which make more and more Americans completely dependent on the government. Romney isn't any better though, all the money he'd cut from welfare programs would go to the fucking MILITARY. He wants to spend more than the current DEFICIT on "defense" alone.
They're both completely unrealistic and illogical.
