    It's not his fault that western corporatism/capitalism is fundamentally flawed and doomed to collapse.

    It is flawed, but without it, what do you have? The American dream is all but lost. Under Obama for 4 more years, kiss it goodbye.

    That's because progressives have a difficult time with responsibility - meaning you.

    The fundamental flaw is that in the absence of growth and innovation capitalism is a failure, not exactly something that only occurred after Obama was elected. There are no more new territories to develop, no more new, cheaper labor to exploit, there is not even any growth without periodic crashes. we are bumping up against the limit of what capitalism can do within the rules of our society.

    So why isn't the economy better? It's because we are still trying to dig out of the last crash that seemed to hurt everyone except the people who caused it, You can't buy low and sell high if things stay relatively stable. For a very few this recession was an incredible windfall, sucked for the rest of us but we do not matter to the likes of Goldman Sachs.

    I love how some think.... Some people were smart and lived within their means and others didn't and those that did - that were responsible - should now be on the hook for those that didn't?????

    Are these people insane or stupid???

    Obviously some people (regardless of their position) were able to resist the temptation - some didn't...

    cry, cry, cry....

    I understood, hence I owe NOTHING to anyone....

    Who are really the greedy ones??

    I never asked anyone to front me a car, a house, food or anything.........

    How about the notion that the only way to have a socialist economy is to destroy a capitalist economy??

    How about this notion? Since we know the economy is a fixed game, rigged to funnel money to a few, why do you only blame the losers?
