I received this article entitled 20 Reasons Why The U.S. Economy Is Dying And Is Simply Not Going To Recover in my inbox and, before I knew who wrote it, I came to one of two conclusions.

First, its origin is The Libertarian Party or a libertarian type web site or publication.

Their solution:

1. Stop printing money and give money printing back to the US Treasury. This is something with which I agree and it would be one of the few things with which a libertarian thinking entity would trust the US government.

2. Stop taxing Americans and cut or obliterate all "entitlement" programs. "Entitlement" programs are mostly social safety nets. So, with the biggest employers in the FUSA (The Former United States of America), corporations, moving their jobs to countries where people will do the jobs for $2.50 an hour or less, more and more Americans are losing their jobs. Without social safety nets, unemployment will, and, as the article says, does continue to rise.

What do Libertarians/libertarians think should happen to unemployed people? I don't really know. The only thing I can think of is that Libertarians/libertarians will warn us to watch where we walk as the unemployed will be lying on roads and sidewalks throughout The FUSA.

3. However, as Libertarians/libertarians are all about freedom, they would be loathe to infringe upon the freedom of corporations to move their jobs wherever they want to move them and hire whomever they want to hire for whatever the "market" will decide the wage should be. If you're a corporation - after all, The Supreme Court recently verified that corporations are people, too - $2.50 sounds pretty damn good to you.

4. One thing the Libertarians/libertarians are really not strong with is patriotism.
