I don’t agree with that at all. For one, we don’t even have a Pure Capitalist system to begin with… We lost that when a Private Bank was given a money monopoly back in 1913. We used to have a true Capitalist economy… You know, back in the day when America created the foundation to all of its prosperity, back when we were a skyrocketing manufacturing powerhouse, back when we were the envy of the entire planet, back when our innovations outpaced everybody, back when we still produced wealth, back when the middle class actually had a chance at forward progress, back when a parent could rightfully expect their children would have things better than they had it. Yeah. So glad we’re not back there any more!
You get mad at the banks and institutions that got drunk and helped trigger the financial meltdown, I get angry at the Fed and the government policies that liquored them up with easy money and got them drunk in the first place.
FDIC for example. Sounds like a great idea. The Fed will insure your money in the bank if the bank screws up. But their are unintended consequences to everything the government does. Now banks don’t have to worry as much about keeping their depositors money save because the Fed will bail them out… So they are more inclined to make stupid, risky decisions… Then when they fail, it costs everyone.
That’s just one example.
Also, Obama is not just at war with the Catholic Church in regards to the contraception issue… I think the media has been playing that up to make it a narrow issue. Obama is at war with the Constitution and every American citizen by mandating what services have to be free…
Contraception is not the only thing that they want the insurance companies to cover for “free”. There are a bunch of other services like domestic counseling that are now required to be “free”… When you make things like counseling free, all of the sudden a lot of people are going to want it. Because something costs nothing, people will go anyway, even if they think they don’t need it. So now what happens is you have increased demand for all this counseling, birth control or whatever they have required insurance companies to provide for free. So the cost of the service goes up. Now, even though you don’t want these counseling services, not only are you going to have to pay for them, your going to have to pay through the nose for them through your rising premiums.
Look at government student loans… The students will now have extra money for college so the colleges jack the prices up.
Also, about Ron Paul… I live in Ga and attended a mass precinct meeting to become a delegate for Ron Paul. The turnout was INCREDIBLE and reports are coming in from counties across the state that suggests we will be in a VERY good position moving into the County Conventions… Although Ron Paul didn’t when the straw polls in the caucus states, he is going to take in most of the delegates. And delegates are the name of the game.
Just because the corporate media is always giving Ron a political hack job, doesn’t mean he is out of the race and we should give up. If my history books were correct, the odds of the Colonies defeating the British were vary slim… The problem with America is we have been accepting less. There is no reason we should be electing big government Republicans like Rick Santorum, Newt or Mitt Romney, when we have Constitutional and ideologically pure people like Ron Paul. If you check Santorum, Newt or Romney on the ballot box, you may as well check Obama because your not going to get much of a deviation… Just look at there voting records and donors.
The biggest hurdle for Ron Paul is getting past the diatribes from Faux News the Clinton News Network and the rest of the lame stream media. If the reporting wasn’t one sided, Ron Paul would be blazing ahead. And don’t even give me that about Santorum (Who I just met at my church) not having fair coverage… Rupert Murdoch, the media mogul who owns News Corp which owns Fox, WSJ, The national reviews and a bunch of other media outlets supports Rick Santorum.
Very long long winded tonight… Sorry!
