Lower the cost of fuel, then the truckers could lower their rates, farmers wouldn'thave to pay as much to grow their crops, manufacturing could raise their wages, It can go on and on. But everything goes back to the high cost of fuel.
As for gun control, you have to pass a back ground check to legally buy a gun, the bad guys steal them.  The bad guys are the ones that need to be controled not the law abiding citizens.

Reply explain define either or reply back  mine would be no violence i would ban all guns and stop the violence only officers can have guns  :peace: would be in the world but if you think nothing explain why


Banning all guns wouldn't improve the economy.  If we're still in a recession, the common-sense thing would be to lower retail prices and sell more goods, (increased sales would boost the bottomline more than selling fewer goods at higher prices).  Unfortunately, greed makes common sense most uncommon.
I have the same idea.  I think no need weapon around to help all of our children learn the violent things.

I would institute a law that any one person can only amass a certain amount of money...a sort of cap on their income. If they pass that amount then the income tax should be so high that the cap amount stays the same. I know it sounds terrible, but it would mean that there will be more money available to go around. I mean.....how many vehicles/houses/yachts/businesses does one person need?

That isn't the same idea I mentioned so, I don't know which idea you're referring to.
One can lead a horse to water however, if one holds the horse's head under, that horse will drown.

I'd vote for Ron Paul as I feel he is the only candidate out there that understands what is wrong with our economy and how to fix it. :D

I agree with Mykat - he seems to be the only one that speaks some kind of sense

I know this isn't a direct answer to your question, but all I can say is wish all you want, we are going down, and we will probably never come back up...every great nation falls, history repeats itself, and that's what's happening to America..wish it wasn't so, but must face the facts.

I would ask why the price for barrel of crued oil closed at just under 110. today.  yet back in 2006 - 2008 when gas prices started to climb above 3 dollars, the price of crued oil was 129 per barrel..   the price of crued is less now in 2012 yet the price per gallon is higher than in 2008 when the price per barrel was higher..

I would cut down on unemployment, there are jobs but people will not get jobs for less pay, and why would they when the government is paying them  :BangHead:

Banning guns will never change the economy.  Putting people back to work and stop the greedy banks from utilizing money they have no right to.  Stop taxing businesses so heavily that they move out of state and start outsourcing to other countries where it costs only pennies instead of dollars in the state.  That's just a beginning.

I am extremely confused right now.  The economy is the way it is and you would get rid of guns?  How would this fix the economy?  In reality it would only hurt the economy.
