I give credit to Ron Paul who was the first to warn that the economy was on thin ice.

His wake-up call has led to changes that will make America economically stronger going forward.

If you take the number of people a year or more out of work who are not counted in the unemployment figures, add to that the regular unemployment figures and you get about 18% I would think, and it is closer to 22% in California.
Housing had the worse month in a decade.
There is no money being loaned.

Outside of the trillions spend by Obama to pay only government unions to work, I don't know where the so called recovery is?

I figure a little bump in interest rates we borrow the national debt at, or id someone refuses to buy our debt we will sink like a lead weight.

I don't think there will be a great recovery so no one wins.

He did talk about it in mid 2000s but it did not lead to any changes since no one listened to him. The changes didn't come until the crash had taken place
