6. we went trillions into debt for the stupid global war on terror and the economy was fine.

deficits aren't a problem when you have a fiat currency. We've established that there really isn't a problem with long term deficit spending, we've been doing it for 80 years or so.

Deficit hawks just want to justify taking away benefits while giving the rich tax cuts.

Deficits are paid back in bonds over time. T-bills are the safest investment on the planet.
