The Republicans now more than ever have vocalized and embraced extreme ring wing views in defending the rich through tax breaks for the wealthy, costly wars in foreign lands, eroding civil rights and bailouts (corporate welfare) of large companies all at the expense of the average American. The only problem is: Obama does the exact same thing under his watch except his language is much more subdued. I don’t know about other readers, but I follow someone’s actions, not their words, so Reps and Dems are two heads of the same beast.

I wouldn't go as far as the above, but I mostly agree with your assessment. I'll be watching closely what happens in Iowa. Hopefully Ron Paul pulls this one out of his *** somehow.

I think of them as the two wings of the Capitalist Party of America, the Right Wing and the Neo-Nazi Wing, both run by Big Money.

You're right on target, there.
Geeze - I was stupid enough to somehow assume Congress person's money had to be in a blind trust. Now I learn that they are the only group in the country for whom insider trading is legal. Shades of Martha Stewart!
