55. No ideology is "perfect"...
and a lot of the problems, though not all, for the US can be blamed on the lack of regulation by government. Of course, it's funny that you blame the debt on "capitalism", when those are concious, government-made decisions. And considering that many socialist European nations have even bigger debt loads as a percentage of GDP than us, it's hard to see how these all connect to "capitalism".

Whether your are overspending on tax cuts or on social programs, you're still overspending. You're trying to make the argument too simplisitic.
