    I don't think most liberals consciously want to control 100% of the economy.

    But they don't seem to have any resistance to more and more control, and in fact seem to think we aren't anywhere near close enough yet.

    What is ideal for liberals? What is enough? Is there such a thing as too much gov't control (economically-speaking) in their paradigm(s).

    Wow! Are you wrong! They deserve to run it all, because they're so much smarter than you or me and if you don't believe me as Deany or Jilly

    They know what's best for you.

    I feel like liberals would almost approach some form of happiness
    if Americans and the rich in particular were taxed at 90% plus.
    They would consider that a good starting off point.

    If Liberals were able to spend twice of what they would take in
    as far as government revenue well that just might get a smile from them.

    If they were in total control of the economy on top of that.

    Well that just might be enough to give them a little joy...

    of course they do......until the law of diminishing returns takes over....

    Mao controlled all property but his communes failed and people starved....later he allowed small private plots of land for personal use and barter and things got better...

    in modern Red China today they even allow "controlled capitalism".....

    What I can't figure out, it seems like the more they control, the angrier they get. Why is that?
