The government's job isn't to create an economy - merely to make conditions in which one can thrive. Sorry, until someone presents an idea which stops all our jobs from going overseas, they're just pissing up a rope.
In reality, the current idea of take from the rich to give to the poor is a roundabout method of the trickle down theory that all yous folks seem to despise. You still end up with the big guys holding the money while the guys on bottom cross their fingers and hope the big guys will decide to create jobs. If the big guy instead says, "look at all the profit" and pockets it, we're right back the next year trying to take from the rich guy again.
