    It is not about Progessives vs Extreme Right but corruption vs the tax payer. Both parties are dirty and to single out one is ignoring the facts.

    I've cut and pasted this from a post I made a while back on RTF...

    Clinton signed into law the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, which deregulated much of the financial industry, that Republicans, and in particular Senate Banking Committee Chairman Phil Gramm and Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, were the main proponents of deregulation. Republicans were the authors of that Act and the 2000 Commodity Futures Modernization Act that exempted over-the-counter derivatives like credit-default swaps from regulation by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Credit-default swaps took down AIG. So laying all the blame solely on Democrats is really not fair or accurate.
    Franco,

    I don't agree with you on the Austrian Economics, but on this I won't argue with you one bit.

    I dont know who you guys are referring to....but my idea that I floated on a thread was to give all the candidates a finite amount of money, once its gone ,its gone....if they can't run a campaign on a budget, how in the heck can I expect them to run a country with no budget ...Elections should be decided by eligible voters not by who can raise the most special interest,PAC money..and yes I know that's pie in the sky thinking...

    Does anyone know who said this?


    Such regulations may, no doubt, be considered as in some respect a violation of natural liberty. But those exertions of the natural liberty of a few individuals, which might endanger the security of the whole society, are, and ought to be, restrained by the laws of all governments; of the most free, as well as or the most despotical. The obligation of building party walls, in order to prevent the communication of fire, is a violation of natural liberty, exactly of the same kind with the regulations of the banking trade which are here proposed.

    Would you consider him a socialist?
