    Now then, I'm guessing you totally agree with the first concept and totally discount the latter. So my question is: if you think the loss of tax revenues was a key factor in large deficits, which in turn was a key factor in the economic crisis, then how is making those deficits even larger going to help solve the problem?

    Your wrong and it won't.
    He is NOT wrong and it DID - on several different occasions. It does not ALWAYS lead to increased revenues - it depends on which side of the revenue curve that particular tax rate is on at the time the rate cuts are enacted.

    Even if he did (and I believe he did), it was (and IS) pretty standard in that part of the world! The Ayatollah certainly was NOT an improvement.

    Jimmy Carter ignorantly ignored the culture of the region and helped to increase the power of the radical extremists exponentially.

    Come on. What part of a fight in the alley behind a bar is a surprise to you?

    You invite abuse. It would be disingenuous of you not to accept it.
