    There's more, filled with common sense statements. When will the government wise-up and listen to we, the people? (I'm beginning to think never).

    Nobody gets everything they want from their party. There are shades of grey. However, the guy sitting in the big chair is a massive improvement on the fool that was there..

    No, we aren't. The government is spending sums of money that are down right mind boggling, with no end in sight. The government is growing at an astronomical pace, with no end in sight. This is not the 'change' that people expected from Obama. But it's the 'change' he had in mind all along.

    The article is basically saying 'slow down, stop the rush, stop and think, use some common sense'. Congress and the Obama administration aren't listening, they are pursuing their agenda (under the guise of helping) . . . and the people be damned.

    I of course oppose government intervention in economic structure (and government existence, for that matter) more than any rightist here, but it's merely a necessary agent in the capitalist economy. For example, have a look at Yu's A new perspective on the role of the government in economic development: Coordination under uncertainty.

    However, inflaming crude fears about the illegals, the murderous ragheads, and the "socialist government" is a convenient way for the ruling class to keep the rabble in line, so it's not unexpected that we witness that.

    The letter to Beck is spot on and it is not limited to the president or any one political party.

    As for you commies who want Obama to go further, don't worry, he will and the joke will be on you!
