    Well lets see.... The government now owns our auto industry, our banking system, wants to get into health care, would like to re-distribute the nations wealth in an attempt to alleviate any existing wealth and make everyone dependant on them. The government uses the media to indoctrinate the public, uses the global warming hoax as a tool to scare people into freely allowing more taxes, they pass bills to pay for everything they've been trying to get for decades under the gise of stimulating the economy, they use their lynchmen (ACORN) to threaten and intimidate businesses, and threaten media retaliation if they don't agree..... Gee, what do you think?

    I don't feel, based on the last election, that enough Americans are fully aware of the glaring differences between capitalism, socialism and fascism. I do feel we are in grave danger of becoming a socialistic country, if the people don't do something to stop what is happening. It started with AIG, but is spreading to the auto industry and who knows where the government will insinuate itself next. Socialism is about so much more than nationized (translate: higher taxes for mediocre services) healthcare. Those of you who understand where we could be headed, please explain it to those you know who don't understand so we can stop the insanity and keep our freedoms in tact!

    The good people of the United States, will not allow it. That is why we have check and balances. I think the next election 2010, will be a good indication.

    Some of the voters are realizing that they were duped into voting for Obama thinking he was a moderate.
    The scary thing is the voters that voted for him that still support him now.

    Havn't you heard that the Goverment refused being payed back, except in Bank stocks? And the G.M. and Crysler have a board appointed by the Goverment?
  • Zuggi Dan (Po... 2009/05/24 18:52:40

    The government refused repayment from a few banks because it would have reduced their reserves past the leveraging limits. Overleveraging was one of the main causes of the bank collapses; it'd be stupid to put the back in a situation where they could fail. When they can repay the loan without danger of more bank failures, the government will take it.
  • Dan (Po... Zuggi 2009/05/24 18:56:58 (edited)

    So thaey take bank stock instead and therefore the Goverment now owns 51% of Bank stock. The goverment has no buisness being in private banks. They should fail. Failure is only a way to be sucessful.
    In other words they can regroup and make a come back. Goverment proping it up only prevents the inevitable and makes the fall worse.
  • Zuggi Dan (Po... 2009/05/24 18:58:56

    There's no intention to keep that stock. It's just the best way to repay the government without damaging the reserves.
  • Dan (Po... Zuggi 2009/05/24 19:01:41

    Do you really believe that?
  • Zuggi Dan (Po... 2009/05/24 19:32:16

    Of course.

    Will you admit that the bailout wasn't socialism when all that stock is sold?
  • Dan (Po... Zuggi 2009/05/24 20:52:32

    When the Goverment gets completly out of it then, yes. And when the Goverment gets completly out of private enterprise. Like the aouto industry and quit aiding the unions in the take over of said industry. Yes. But I do not beleive they will. Infact the next thing to go down will be the oil industry, watch.

    Technically no, we're becoming fascist or communist. True socialism is a mutual, community effort, and it lacks the ability to enforce socialist 'equality'. The socialism is being forced upon us (which is technically either fascism or communism).

    That is what happens when a nation becomes democratic and votes on everything. We use to be a republic

    Pledge Allegiance to the flag
    of the United States of America
    and to the Republic <------ We were a republic at one time...
    for which it stands,
    one Nation under God,
    indivisible,
    with liberty and justice for all. united america republic republic stands nation god indivisible liberty justice

    Because it is a sensitve topic and instead of making a point someone want to mark it as inapproite. To the DR please make your point instead of mark me inapproite, I just seek to state how I feel in a fair, clean, and civil matter. Yes this is a important topic and us Americans should talk.
