This shows the cause of this stage of the crisis. However this is not the cause of how we got here. You need to look into fiat money, the abuses of it, bubble economies etc. Also to try and pen this on just democrats is just down right silly/stupid. This is a systemic problem produced by a plus long decade move toward neo debt feudalism which is what we are in now.

The constant fact is that all problems come from Government. Progress comes from innovative people. If the free market was in control, homes would cost what it takes to build them, and depreciate until everyone could afford a place to live. Credit is in my opinion, overused. The benefit of this video proves that Bush is not the only culprit in the failed economy. The only solution is to let the system fail and rebuild from the bottom. We the entrepreneurs are ready to rebuild the country if you let the debt based system fail.

Ok, it held my interest until it turned into a political commercial regarding the upcoming election. Boooo, that alone tells me its a bunch of crap. Also, why does it go so fast, do they want viewers to see the facts or not.

Because they have a political viewpoint that you don't like means that the facts they present are not true?

As for the speed, I suppose you aren't aware that YouTube has a 10 minute limit on videos?

Here's a question for ya. OK I have somewhat of an idea of who Obama would appoint as the secretary of the treasure. Which might be Dodd or some one Dodd like. But I don't have a clue on who McCain would put in that roll. Who fit the bill for him?

I never said I disagree with their political viewpoint. I also never said that the facts are not true.

Obviously, it'd be Phil Gramm.
