"And Keynesian has always worked when applied (that I'm aware of)."

Gee, this must be true because 0bama said the porkulus bill he passed kept us from going into a depression. Who cares about empirical evidence? If 0 says it, it's flat-out true! Never mind too that we did not have more economic growth in an amount larger than the amount of the porkulus which Keynesian economists promised it would do.

Heck, if government spending returns more in economic growth than the amount of government spending, the gubmint should just spend $1 trillion dollars per hour and we will be more prosperous than in any time in history.
