How about we deal with facts? The United States, Europe, and Japan are all engaging in massive deficit spending, which is supposed to be stimulative according to Keynesian mythology.____________________

Further, we have been for decades, we should be looking at a prosperity of massive proportion.

We would have been in one for a long time before the banking crisis and would have long recovered from a banking crisis

The Bush wars everyone rails about? Would have been stimulative.

How did Greece get into trouble? By being frugal and cutting budgets so that now they have to go Keynesian stimulus?

As long as you ignore reality, saying the problems are the budget cuts actually does not sound totally absurd.
