–Are thoseTea/Republican candidates simply the silliest people, ever? The laughs keep on coming.

Mitchell’s laws: Reduced money growth never stimulates economic growth. To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments. Austerity breeds austerity and leads to civil disorder. Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.

Just when you thought that Sarah Palin’s leaving center stage would restore some sanity to the coming election, the Tea/Republican candidates continue to top themselves. Here you have Ron Paul, Jon Huntsman, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Gary Johnson, Buddy Roemer, Sneezy, Dopey and Grumpy. They’re enough to send even the most dour of us into laughter spasms.

“But wait” as the T.V. pitchmen say, “there’s more. All of the following happened today:

Rep. Michele Bachmann said she was surprised to hear that her entire New Hampshire campaign staff had quit en masse today, even though they “had not been paid for a month,” one of the departing staffers told ABC News.

Let’s see. She repeatedly makes stupid comments, but her people heroically stand with her. In thanks for their efforts, she doesn’t pay them for a month. And then she’s not only surprised they finally quit, but wasn’t even aware it happened. She must be taking staff-management lessons from Newt.

Herman Cain has said his much-reviled 9-9-9 plan was the product of extensive testing and thinking, but the only man he cited as involved with its research — Rich Lowrie of Cleveland — is not a trained economist. Cain now has introduced changes in which impoverished Americans would be exempted from the nine percent individual flat tax. “If you are at or below the poverty level, your plan isn’t ‘9-9-9,’ it’s ‘9-0-9,'” Cain said.

He has one idea, just one. His lone idea is a tax plan cleverly named “9-9-9” so his followers wouldn’t even need to think. They can just chant, “9-9-9” He knows nothing about foreign policy, domestic policy or any other policy. All he has is this “extensively tested and thought about” tax plan.

So when his own party pointed out that his tax plan was ridiculous, he simply changed the name to “9-0-9″ for some people. If incredibly he gets elected, we all should dial 9-1-1.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio the national Republican party’s fastest rising star, has over the years, repeatedly spoken emotionally of how his parents fled Cuba when Fidel Castro took power, and that’s why he loves America more than anyone. Except the whole thing is a lie. His folks didn’t escape Castro. They left Cuba four years before they, or anyone else, even heard of Castro

O.K., so he dodged all the debates. And he lied about his own parents. And he has presented not one idea about anything. But he’s good looking and glib and he really, really, really loves America. And that is what qualifies him to be the Tea/Republicans fastest rising star. I’m confident he knows how to reduce unemployment and grow our economy — just as all Tea/Republicans do. Right.

You simply cannot make this stuff up. If all of this was today’s news, I wonder what’s in store for America, tomorrow.

No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth. Monetary Sovereignty: Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia. The key equation in economics: Federal Deficits – Net Imports = Net Private Savings

  1. You are obviously a Democrat hence your reference to Tea/Republicans! They may all be Republicans but they are not endorsed by the Tea Party groups. Especially Perry or Romney – nor is Paul who is endorsed by the Libertarians! I do not care who the candidate is they are carrying some kind of baggage since no one is perfect – and speaking of – what about that POTUS of ours – isn’t he about the smartest, foreigner, Muslum, anti-American, Liar we have ever come upon! What a man – you gotta hate him!


    1. you must have never been to this site before. the dems and obama are also held to account for their ignorance as well. neither party seems to have a clue. mmt is apolitical.


  2. You forgot about Eric Cantor-

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) has abruptly canceled a speech planned for this afternoon at the University of Pennsylvania that was meant to lay out the GOP’s plans to address income inequality. While the university gave no reason for the cancellation, CNN is reporting that Cantor canceled after the university decided to make the speech open to the public. Cantor had signed up for a “selected audience.”

    You have to keep the light shining on these guys…the cockroaches will run for the shadows.

    I hope people are soon starting to catch on.


  3. After Hermain Cain changed his stance on abortion yet again, Rick Perry reportedly asked him “was that before you were before you were for pro choice?”


  4. As a nation, how do we change the focus from austerity to full employment? Today, so many people are convinced we’ve taxed and regulated ourselves into the hole that were currently in, and yet there is no evidence, whatsoever, to support this conclusion. Call me crazy, but politics needs to be elimanted from cable television. TV stations like FOX News, MSNBC, and CNN have turned everybody into “experts”, and “experts” are never wrong. Is it any surprise that congress is gridlocked when half the country thinks the other half is the enemy. Congress is, actually, functioning as its supposed to. It is simply modeling the nation’s sentiment, which is it’s job. We don’t need to fix the government. We need to fix ourselves.


  5. More Republican humor. You simply cannot make this stuff up:

    Washingon Post:

    Businessman Herman Cain spent the better part of two minutes hemming and hawing — and sitting silently — as he tried to find an answer for whether or not he supported President Obama’s Libya policy in an on-camera interview with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel editorial board on Monday.

    Cain and his campaign have downplayed the controversy, insisting that he was operating on four hours of sleep and that he paused “so I could gather my thoughts”.

    But even as they sought to minimize the damage, more clips from the Journal-Sentinel interview came out Tuesday — including one in which Cain said he offered Henry Kissinger the job of secretary of state in his administration but was rebuffed.

    But later Tuesday, Cain spokesman J.D. Gordon said that Cain never asked the elder statesmen such a thing.


  6. OMG !

    Newsmax: Newt: Gingrich/Cain Ticket ‘A Real Possibility’
    Tuesday, 15 Nov 2011; By Jim Meyers and Kathleen Walter

    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich tells Newsmax that a Gingrich/Herman Cain ticket in 2012 is a “real possibility” — and so is a slate with Cain on top and Gingrich as his running mate.

    The jokes just keep on rolling.

  7. From the National Memo:

    Trump? The Republican Primary Is Now Officially A Gong Show

    Fri, 12/02/2011 – Joe Conason

    Marketing genius is perhaps the most appropriate way to describe Donald J. Trump’s newest incarnation as the announced host — he can hardly be called a “moderator” — of a post-Christmas Republican debate sponsored by Newsmax, the conservative magazine. Why would candidates agree to join this spectacle? (Jon Huntsman quickly declined, although he can always unleash his daughters’ often-brutal Twitter feed on Trump if he raises a ruckus.)

    You simply cannot make this stuff up.
