    We as a people should never ever compromise on principle.

    All of our social and fiscal ills originate from compromise.

    I would have to say greed is more likely the origin of our current social and fiscal ills.

    Would you care to cite a post of mine where I make socialistic, facist, Marxist statements of principal?

    If you can find one I'll be glad to debate it with you.

    Please define the word greed and then explain how it is the origin of our current fiscal ills.
    Thanks,

    Matt,

    I would define greed as an excessive desire to acquire or possess more, especially more material wealth, than one needs or deserves, or an insatiable desire for wealth.

    I won’t rehash all the factors that led to the current housing market collapse, the near collapse of the banking industry, and the collapse of the credit markets. It has been discussed in depth here many times, and the information is also available readily on line. Some blame Democrats, and some blame Republicans, but the bottom line is, a lot of people made a lot of money with the schemes and policies that led to our current economic problems. Even when it became apparent that there was a good chance the whole house of cards would come crashing down, those involved did nothing to stop it. In fact, they sometimes hid the facts to ensure they would continue to make more money, even if it was at the expense of the rest of us. To me, that constitutes greed.

    If america was always a social or marxist nation then I would say that no principle was compromised.
    But since my grand father,father or I cant remember this country ever being a socialistic country or a marxist country ,,then I have to say it was our principles that were compromised,,, if they werent outr budget would be in the black.
    Slowley since 1913 this was a pretty free country,,since then those freedoms have become usurped through compromising with those who do not hold those principles dear.

    If we were becoming a very conservative country then I would say that the liberal doctrine has been compromised.
    But that wont ever happen again. That I can guarentee.

    Although Roosavelt was a Dem. By todays defintion he would be a far right extremest.

    On ther contrary.

    Greed occures because principles are consistantly broken without much consenquence.
