    Correct me if I'm wrong, and I know you will, but isn't Ron Paul the only GOP presidential candidate to publicly oppose the bailouts before they happened?

    That's gotta be worth something, no?

    Good. He put practicality over ideology. That's an excellent trait.

    Those who opposed the bailouts have no idea what kind of clusterfuck we would have been in without it. They think we have it hard now.... we got off light.... if the banks had gone under. Oh, dear, Lord.... it does not bear thinking about.

    The bailouts were needed at the point in time that they were done.

    The worst part of the bailouts ( besides the failures that lead to them being needed) was that Paulson and the Bush team put NO caveots on the banks for taking the money.

    The US government could have made MONEY off the tranactions that were designed to save the banks very lives.

    Some fool (PAULSON) desided it was a completely FREE ride for the banks after they had screwed us all with their greed.

    Sadly our 2 party government's fearmongering worked on you as well CalGirl.

    We're in a clusterfuck now, and we had the bailouts.

    Look how our politicians have brainwashed us, gov't buddying up with selected corporations (coincidentally the ones who lined their pockets the most), in other words fascism, is now being endorsed by the american citizen.

    They win, we lose.

    It'd be all over with and a real recovery could have begun, much like the real depression that Warren Harding dealt with. He did nothing and let things take their natural course. The pain and suffering were over in two years.
    No bankster buddies of the administration were allowed to save their portfolios while countless others were wiped out a la Bush and Obama.
