    When will you ultra capitalist freaks learn that with the way capitalism works there would have to be unlimited resources and capital for supply side economics and lassiez-faire capitalism to work? Have you all never read your history books? European countries colonized Africa and Asia for this very reason, after they all became industrialized, they produced good in over abundance and when they could sell out their surplus they colonized Africa and Asia to gain resources and to have a place to push and flood markets with their cheap made surplus goods. Common sense says never to over supply, just like a bubble that grows its going to burst and thats how we get depressions and recessions.

    Nope, what is proof of our budget crisis is our never ending spending happy joyfest and our disregard for the constitution.

    No moron, its about solely spending, you have to man up and see that this stupid greed and need for unregulated capitalism is the main root on the financial crisis, mainly greed. Those who had more than enough wanted more and more.

    No, it was the stupid greed of the politicians and regulators, who "invest" for political returns with total disregard to the possible/probable economic backlash.

    Absolute power is like that.

    Sorry, those powers enumerated in the constitution have largely been ignored ie creation of social engineering experiments which was NEVER the intention of our framers. They also would have been disturbed at our military expenditures. And finally, our gross gluttonous spending while continuously voting ourselves trinkets out of the treasury is another huge problem. These problems, specifically, are pushing this country into the abyss.

    Right. And in that respect, has there ever been larger display of naked greed than that of Obama, Pelosi and Reid? Those power hungry yahoo's (and their enablers) are driving us over a cliff with greed for power and control.

    Also, since when did anyone ever have a laissez-faire capitalist system? Never happened in history. (unfortunately)

    Capitalism is a social system founded upon individual rights.

    It would work quite well if it actually were laissez-faire. The feds have their junk stuck in every orifice.

    So a budget crisis for a government that does nothing but interfer with the market is proof that lassiez-faire capitalism doesn't work????

    If anything, it's a strong argument towards lassiez-faire capitalism. If the government isnt micromanaging the economy, then it wont be spending out of control.
