Are America's best days behind it?
Posted: 04:56 PM ET

FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

"While lawmakers continue to play games with the debt ceiling deadline, millions of people's lives are being affected. The clock is ticking ...

Republican congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul thinks time may have already run out. On the floor of the House last week, Paul said, "When a country is indebted to the degree that we're indebted, the country always defaults. We will default because the debt is unsustainable."

Meanwhile, we’ve got no deal as our politicians continue to appear they have lost sight of what they were elected to do in the first place...." continue here

Which leads Jack to "the question of the hour": Are America's best days behind it?

They've been asking this same question for 14 years. This is the first time that the majority has been pessimistic about the country's economic future.

Listen to the viewer e-mails he reads and check out the blog comments! caffertyfile.blogs.cnn.com

Interesting he brought Ron Paul into the economic discussion eh? :)

'Preview' function is screwed !!!

I realize that most people don't use it.

How about that canadian socialist

America is failing because of individual rights? And we don't focus on the collective? makes me laugh. Maybe canada is doing better because they balanced the budget and cut spending. What a fool.

I was shocked

with that one as well.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

Best days behind us?

If Ron Paul gets elected we will have better days and maybe the best days ahead of us if he can get the big changes done. If he doesn't get elected I think our best days are behind us.

Americans are like junkies in which they have to hit rock bottom before a serious change can occur. Alcoholics don't strive to be sober until they hit rock bottom. That's the same for Americans. The many of us that found Dr. Paul have been awoken but the many that rely on the gov't to take care of them or believe everything they hear on Faux News/CNN will not wake up until they can't buy gas, can't buy food at the grocery store, have to cross police check points everywhere, or when the gov't takes their guns, etc.

If left up to the American sheeple..we are screwed.

I always love...

Wolf Blitzers little token attempts to talk up the establishment from what Cafferty says.

He's like, "WELL OBAMA CANCELED HIS CAMPAIGN VISITS SO YOU KNOW!!!" He does something like that everytime Cafferty says something truthful.

I didn't see what Cafferty did last campaign, but I must say I really like his segments. He doesn't seem to be driven by any political ideology as much as just being like a down to earth truthful realist. He just calls it what it is, but it rather apathetic to the left and right BS.

He kind of reminds me of like the MSM version of Gerald Celente.

Ah yes 'dirty Jack'

a sound flip-flopper...he would be good for the Romney campaign ;)


One Cafferty on each network

Having just one Jack Cafferty on each of the competing networks would make for a much better informed public.

He says more in the very few minutes he's allotted than most of the other windbags all put together.

We Are Alive To Fight For Our Republic - Great Time In History

I think this is a great time in history for patriots everywhere. I believe Ron Paul will be looked at as one of the most influencial people of our time.

I also believe there will be many within this time ie the bushes, obamas, clintons and the like who will also go down in history and oh yes that evil nancy as well because she has done PLENTY to hurt our country.

I can't wait to read those history books.

Ron Paul or Bust

We are taking back our republic one election at a time

Merle Haggard says:

Are The Good Times Really Over

...An are we rollin' down hill
Like a snowball headed for hell?
With no kind of chance for the flag
Or the Liberty Bell

I wish a Ford an a Chevy
Would still last ten years
Like they should
Is the best of the free life behind us now?
And are the good times really over for good?...

Freedom is not: doing everything you want to.
Freedom is: not having to do what you don't want to do.
~ Joyce Meyer

Our best days are ahead of

Our best days are ahead of us. Once we realize that progressivism was just a de facto form of state slavery, we'll throw it off like a broken yoke and be free and prosperous again.

It's only a matter of time. No corporation, no government, nothing on earth can put the genie back in the bottle.

We will be free, dammit!

With that positive attitude, yes we will!

I never knew Evil Warlords were such positive guys : )

You're not going to conquer

You're not going to conquer the countryside and capture all the lusty wenches if you go into battle with a negative attitude.

That's why every night before a battle, my men and I party hardy with beer, bellydancers, and turkey legs the size of tire thumpers!

Ah, the glory of battle!


I like Jack. Although he thoroughly erked me when he said Ron should step down last time. Other than that moment though, Jack has been pretty good to this movement.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

No Problem

It takes a while for even the very wise among us to 'get it'.

Our best days ARE ahead of us. There is no other country that was founded on the principles that America was. There are pretenders, but no country where the individual was supreme over government. That knowledge is in the collective pysche of Americans. We can learn from our mistakes.

Ron, when elected, would lead us thru the coming difficult times, which are unavoidable, more quickly than the others. If he is not elected - the pain will be long and slow. My feeling is, America will be resurrected stronger than before, perhaps decades from now. But only if we learn the lessons of the tough times to come. We have the benefit of having a good intellectual foundation, grounded in liberty, to build upon.
