However, in any democracy, the rulers will ultimately need the imprimatur of the majority who vote them a temporary grant of power.

To do otherwise would not be a democracy but an oligarchy.

Regardless, the economy still isn't nearly where it should be.

But hey, when the white house can instruct government contractors to postpone layoff notices till AFTER reelection, what difference does reality make?

yeah, at the time it was painfully obvious that automatic defense spending cuts were going to take place. Therefore some decision had to be made and notification issued.

That's too bad. Because I've made about 150k from Costco stock in just under a year.

Edit: just checked. My last purchase date was 1 year ago + 2 days ago.
