    "Voters Overwhelmingly prefer a free market economy to an economy managed by the government and think government economic control helps big business at the expense of small ones."

    Isn't it a fact that there were no Savings & Loan failures until they were deregulated?
    Isn't it a fact that there were no Bank failures until they were deregulated?
    Isn't it a fact that there would have been no oil spill in the Gulf if regulations would have been enforced?
    ====================
    Yes, too much regulating is one thing, but protecting the welfare of this nation and it's citizens from those who would benefit at the cost of this nation and it's people is needed.

    The 86%, how would they know? They've never lived in a free market economy. Anyone alive today in the US that didn't come from somewhere else has always lived in a government regulated economy and always will. Only those with the wealth to manipulate the free market, want a truly free market economy. Everyone else wants some form of regulation. Don't believe me? Ask them if they want to leave the quality of medicines up to the drug companies?

    Then why do Republicans work so hard to send jobs to China? That's the most regulated economy in the world.

    If Republicans had their way, we would have no:

    Speed limits
    Safety regulations for clean air, food, water
    Social Security
    Medicare
    Medicaid
    Unemployment benefits

    Why not just do away with government and put corporations and churches in charge?

    Well, refute my points I made in Post 3.
    I'm for a FAIR market. Many, many Main Street Americans lost wealth thanks to the deregulation of the financial sector in the late 80's and again with the most recent meltdown, that's a fact
    Why do you hate the middle class?
