Since when did rational problem-solving cease to be "serious"? Of course, we aren’t having a sober and measured discussion about pragmatic solutions. Instead, the "national conversation" about the budget is dominated by debt demagogues with ulterior motives. This is dangerous for them, as voters are increasingly seeing them as "scary", "narrow-minded", and "out of touch." But this is more dangerous for the country, and what it is, is a class war.
The key is to not fall victim to their lies. But don't become some conspiracy nut yourself. There are plenty of evil-doers and deeds to focus on without inventing imaginary ones. Your saving grace will be your cool head and reason. Examine the claims, and look at the facts.
