    Obama: No Growth, No Jobs, Massive Deficits

    Now that we've tried an anti-capitalist in the Oval office... and run up almost $5 Trillion in additional national debt accomplishing virtually NOTHING...

    ... what are we going to try for the NEXT 4 years?

    If Obama is re-elected and we run up another $5 trillion in debt, what will happen?

    Will investment capital keep stampeding out of the country like it is currently? Will there be riots in the streets? Will our US treasuries become "junk bonds"? Will the unemployment rate hit 12%?

    Obama's proposed taxes on the wealthy will address about 7 or 8% of our deficit. That's his only proposal and it will accelerate the exodous of investment capital out of the U.S.

    Paul Ryan's plan was designed to reign in record government spending and address about half of our deficit while implementing incentives for businesses to invest in growth.

    This isn't rocket science... they are calling next january a "fiscal cliff" for a reason.

    Do we address the problem NOW, or do we become Greece. It really is that simple.

      Not sure where Agrium goes from here. They are a Canadian company, so likely they are immune to pressure from Jana. The government there is very protective of its companies. It all depends on where fertilizer prices and costs head. My guess is we could go to 200 long term 5 to 10 years. Not sure where to sell here.

      Note to Anti-Obamanation Dude:

      Exactly how much money have you made investing in Agrium? Hint: I've made a killing.

      Perhaps we should cut all those farmer subsidies while we're implementing Ryan's plan. No more irrigation upgrades, no ethanol mandates, no more insurance for farmers, no more this no more that, on your own son, and when our food system comes crashing down you still won't realize you were wrong!

      So, I hope you have enough in your bank account, because under your plan no one will have trouble kicking you to the curb to die when your insurance company weisels out from paying its bills.

      And by the way, our Grandkids are BBQ from global Warming.

      So please, Stop the Warming
