Mitt Romney is a dinosaur: he thinks we need another Reagan and he thought he could pretend to be Reagan and be elected. But he didn't really want the job. He doesn't have any ideas, hearkening back to the 1950's view of the world that cripples Republicans when the economy passes Harvest Time.

We really don't need a businessman to be our leader. Businessmen are obsessed with money. That's all they see, in their dreams and in waking life. They tend to be passionate only about material achievement. This makes them shallow, with lasting deep character. We need a leader who has more depth than that. Money is NOT the only thing in life that gives us meaning.

We need to start thinking of the "American Dream" reality in a new way, substituting QUALITY for QUANTITY. We need to begin honoring human beings (The American Dreamers) for the QUALITY of their IDEAS instead of the QUANTITY of the POSSESSIONS.

Why are we, today, SLAVES OF DEBT, slaves of the banks? Because we think of success only in terms of the QUANTITY of our possessions.

Honoring the quantity of our possessions breeds a race of thieves, embezzlers, and cheats -- and criminals -- since the outcome, the possessions, is the goal that is honored. Honoring the quality of our ideas does not do that.

Let's get to the debt and our banks
The idea that we can let the taxpayer take over responsibility for corporate and consumer mismanagement and theft and bad judgment is more than ludicrous: it is criminal, and will eventually lead to a civil war. That's why our banks need to become 'not for profit corporations', like public utilities. Banks and bankers will always try to find a way to steal the money they are safe-guarding. History shows this to us. The more freedom the banks have, the more injury they deliver, in the name of financial ingenuity. We have had a 'banking crisis' almost every 36 years of our history, followed by an economic depression.
