    What kind of economy do we really have with government (federal, state, local) spending at 40% of GDP, plus the cost of regulation compliance at perhaps another 20% of GDP? Federal spending is 24% of GDP, with 8-9 points of that in borrowed money. The money is 77% borrowed from the Fed, which creates the money out of thin air. What kind of “economy” is that? How long can that go on before it falls apart?
