    Like I said before, I agree with the OWS protesters in that Banks are the problem but they see the solution as more gov't. They couldn't be more wrong on that.

    Maybe he should run as a Democrat...

    He'd probably be more at home and better than what you have.

    It seems Buddy Roemer isn't getting much traction from the GOPers. He's probably too sane.

    I don't expect the pinheads on the streets to know this -- but I'm hoping that Lahkota realizes that MOST of those banks had to be STRONG-ARMED and intimidated to take the bailouts and when they wanted to pay it back -- they were stone-walled.

    If you want to know why BIG BANKS are getter BIGGER -- it's simple.. Govt regulation and compliance..
    The morons on the streets have no idea what they're asking for...

    Corp/Govt collusion exists ONLY because the Sugar Shack is getting bigger and more aggressive in their involvement of picking winners and losers. It's like blaming the bears for showing up at the salmon run.

    A number of his policies are quite like most of the candidates. You know, the ones you call insane.

    What makes him superior in your mind?

    My understanding is that those banks wanted give back as soon as possible to resume handing out big executive bonuses which were prohibited until loans repaid.
