The Swiss banks are know to be abundant in Gold and the French do own a neat collection that we can easily action off. Additionally, if we were to sell the grounds of the Pantheon and of the Roman Ruins to Real-estate Agents, I am sure they will develop those scenic spots immediately. Thus, we will be able to generate quite a bit of money this way.

Well if we cut taxes, and cut spending, hacked budgets, deregulated businesses(temporairly), that would create jobs, and creating jobs is the key way to recover the economy.

Alternatively doing the opposite (increasing taxes and spending and regulations) will kill jobs. Which will just worsen the economy.

Which is easier, looting or fiscal responsibility? You decide.

Well looting is easier of course, and much more fun. But it won't help create jobs for people.

Just remember they have nuke as well. Now the French will through up a white flag with a yellow stripe in the middle. Fighting the in the Switzerland Alps is no cake walk. Why would have rely on the airborne and tenth mountain division. It will not be like killing rabid Muslims.These people can think logically. Besides Allhailodin has right any ways. by the way we do not pick fights we just end them if pollites dose not get in the the way.

Reinstall slavery --> Slavetrader is a job. The US could also reconcile with the Middle East if they sell them some cute little blonde girls and boys.

1. Bush's tax cuts will put us further into debt because they will not pay for themselves, which is what he and his administration anticipated, according to some studies: http://www.nysun.com/business/bush-tax-cuts-increased-tax-base-study-says/84823/

We also aren't getting that "trickle down" effect that is supposed to result from tax cuts for the rich. So cutting taxes is not the answer.

2. Cutting spending, on the other hand, is probably the best answer. The problem there is that no one wants to cut the part of the budget that severely needs to be cut: military spending. We have the most over-inflated defense budget in the world, and we are in two wars for no reason other than to put money into the pockets of military contractors (other corporations that are controlling this country) and military officials. There's also too much money going into bank-bailouts. Instead of cutting that parts of the budget that are only benefiting corporations, they are trying to cut the parts that are beneficial to citizens, which is social security: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPwTM8uTRfg&playnext_from=TL&videos=nazlajQInio

3. Certain businesses aren't regulated enough, which is part of what contributed to the recession and will continue to play a factor in later recessions, on top of making the deficit even bigger and wasting more of our tax money. It has created jobs on Wall street, but they are just refilling the positions that led to the collapse in the first place It's all for the sake of benefiting the banking industry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3WWAItqVbQ&playnext_from=TL&videos=rvyB-imYfA4

We had a chance to change all of this during the recent financial reform bill, but Obama and certain Democrats were too weak to push for real reform, and instead gave into the demands of Republicans and corporations under the guise of bipartisanship.

To be honest, looting and plundering Europe would be an effective solution. Our military is huge because of all the money we waste keeping it huge, so we could put it to good use by robbing other countries. But all of that money would just get funneled to corporations and politicians, and they'll be happily counting their money while the other countries are retaliating by dropping bomb on us citizens.
