Actually socialism would be preferable to this plutocracy. We have turned into one of those banana republics, where 5% of the population controls 95% of the wealth. People, it was by design.

What the hell are you talking about?

Tell us all EXACTLY how Bush, et al., are to blame?

Please? I'm at a loss as to how you came up with this idea?

Give specifics, cite your sources and tell me how 8 years ruined everything.

You won't be able to. You need to separate emotions from facts.

Welfare is a huge bailout. So is medicare. So is every other social program that aids and abets instead of actually "helping and fixing".

The "home ownership for everyone no matter the risk factor" thought process of the dems in charge during the 90's created the bailout in question today. Truth. Fact. Prove it wrong. You can't. Can't disprove FACTS.

Bush has more than doubled the national debt, from 5 trillion to 11.4 trillion, with a stupid war and huge tax breaks to the rich and corporations, and CEO bankers. We have absolutely nothing to show for it excpet some rich who got a whole lot richer. Fit your version of America?

Yeah, some of these folks are so moronic! If they *actually* think Obama is a socialist, than not only are they uneducated, but they're mis-informed too!

I'd like for them to tell me what Obama has done ( in his first 2+ yrs of being our president ) that proves that he is a socialist??

Hell, Clinton ran his admin MUCH more socialist than Obama has done, and look how prosperous our economy was about 7 of the 8 yrs that Clinton was in office?!

The fact that Obama not only bailed out corporate CEO's and Wall Street ( while leaving Main Street behind ) and THEN gave fat-cats a HUGE raise in their 2011 pay, while someone who is working class gets just a few $ more per month, should tell you that a socialist would NEVER, EVER, EVER favor the wealthy over the working class. EVER!

One person pointed out on here earlier that we are becoming a banana republic. He/she is exactly right, and the further the income gaps get and who has real control over our country ( the corporations! ) the quicker we become a 3rd world country.
