Posing as an anti-business crusader, Peter Schiff found a number of DNC delegates and attendees who support explicitly outlawing profitability. We deliberately avoided speaking with the occupy protestors camping outside in tents to get a more "mainstream" Democratic perspective!

    The Socialist (actually Communist) DNC need to butt out our lives. They are working hard to bankrupt this country. If there is ever a revolution...they will see first hand what a patriot is all about.

    Profits are good. You cannot have wealth without profits, and you cannot end poverty without wealth.

    Sure! Let's drive ALL businesses out of the USA. Send everything overseas to the Muslims. God only knows they have nothing to do but stand in the streets with their arms raised while shouting how good their 'god' is!

    This is ridiculous. It is wrong to telll someone how much money they can make if they apply themselves, sacrifice thier time and money and family life, to make a successful business. Most of the time things are created because of either the desire to make money, fame, or obtain power.

    It is also wrong that the democrats want to dictate what the salaries should be for the people who work in a compnay. That should be up to the head of the compnay and how he/she feels that job position contributes to the well being or profits of the company. The government should not be telling employers what every person working should be paid. The government should not be dictating whether we get health service or regulations that deny us treatment. The government should not be in charge of telling us how to live our day from the time we get out of bed to what time we need to go to bed at night.

    Why don't we start with the corporations that support Obama. The very first corporations to be capped should be those owned by George Soros than microsoft and Bill Gates and so on.

    Hitler was a Marxist also. Below are points 11 and 14 of Hitlers 25 point Nazi party platform. I don't know why Democrats don't adopt Hitler entire Nazi Party platform. They certainly have adopted most of Hitler's methods.

    11. That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.

    14. We demand profit-sharing in large industries.

    Ignorance on what drives business and what happens with corporate profits. How many of them have retirement funds in the market that earn dividends?

    As a side note: A couple of months ago I was watching House Hunters International in a former Soviet controlled country. A couple was looking to rent an apartment. There were two types available. The less expensive ones were built for the 'average citizen.' The more expensive ones (larger, better appliances) were built for party members. Showed the true side of communism.

    It will be on small businesses as well. Preventing profit will also bring down wages and jobs. It is already bad enough.

    Yes, the democrats still love to rag on oil profits dispite the fact that government has its hand out for 35 to 50 cents for every gallon of gas pumped, compared to an average of 4 to 6 cents of gas profit for the oil companies. Now which entity is hurting us at the pumps?

    it's back & forth ....the two sides just dont & never will get it ..the dems want to take big business & profits and give it to the ones who don't want to or cannot work ...the democratic party have been programmed lately "because of the scarecty of prosperous jobs " to be depend on the system . this isnt the answer either !!

    then the repubs want the people to take less wages so they can have bigger profits . and treat the worker like crap , so their profits are bigger " CEO's wages HUGE " and the stock holders good ..the workers less & less "thus creates disention towards the corps ..

    then these corps here went to robotics in the 80's .. less people needed . by now the robotics paid for ...the only jobs now are servitude .. !

    but lets program the people to hate the other party !

    then the people get pissed at the dems they elect a repub //they get pissed at the repubs they elect a dem ...been this way for 150+ yrs ...the people are insane !!!!

    and the parties need them to be programmed to believe what the reigning party needs !

    The delegates interviewed were not mainstream Democrats. If they were, then putting caps on corporate profits would be a part of the party platform. It is not. And the interviewer was asking leading questions looking for specific answers and edited out the negative responses.

    I wonder how many Americans support giving Exxon-Mobile government subsidies (corporate welfare at taxpayer expense) - ($4 billions last year) when Exxon-Mobile is making almost $50 billions in profits in the last year?

    The oil and gas industry lobby is one of the strongest in Washington DC. A recent poll showed this:
    "More than three out of four Americans (76 percent) - including 58 percent of Republicans, 83 percent of Independents, and 88 percent of Democrats -- think that the United States should move to a sustainable energy future through "a reduction in our reliance on nuclear power, natural gas and coal, and instead, launch a national initiative to boost renewable energy and energy efficiency.""
    http://www.civilsocietyinstit...

    If the US is to become independent of foreign oil, then we must pursue renewable energy plans, and to do this tax incentives are a necessity.

    What stupidity! Renewable resources? Oil and Gas! Those are renewable resources! We live in a country awash in both but stupid slogans are preventing us from their true potential!

    No, renewable sources are wind, solar, wave, and thermal power.

    Why is it that Republicans are NEVER satisfied no matter how much profits oil companies make? They want the Keystone oil pipeline erroneously claiming that it will reduce our dependence on foreign oil, when in fact the tar sands oil from the Keystone pipeline would be for EXPORT purposes fulfilling a Chevron oil company contract for diesel oil. And because refineries that now produce regular gasoline for this countries consumption would be converted to diesel oil production from the tar sands, thus reducing our already diminished refinery capacity which would RAISE gas prices in the US.
