    Our Government is a Constitutional Republic Governed By The Rule of Law. Our economic system is Capitalism.

    Obama is attempting to change our government to European Socialism and our economy to the Keynesian System. This type of economics has never had a long term positive effect.

    France, Spain, Greece, Italy and Portugal have employed Socialism and Keynesian Economics.
    How do you think they are doing?

    Why has POTUS been going forward to a failed Political and Economic system. Does he expect a different out come?

    You do the research to prove me wrong.

    No he doesn't expect a different outcome. That is what he wants.. Seems to be anyways. He wants complete control! Gov't is bad for your health!

    when attempting to discuss political philosophy, you might find it helpful to actually know something about political philosophy....

    Our government is an unconstitutional republic governed by the rule of law as interpreted by men, and our economic system is corporatism.

    Obama can't change our government to "European Socialism," because socialism is an economic system not a political system. And he can't change our economy to "the Keynesian system" because we've been following Keynesian economics since before Keynes was even around.

    I want a country where I can read about the billions in Forbes without reading about the crisis in the projects. We can have billionaires and a safety net.

    Asked about a system of government and then went directly to economic systems that have nothing directly to do with systems of government.

    We don't live "under" a constitutional republic....The politicians and bureaucrats who are to serve us and protect our liberties are supposed to live under We the People.

    When you say 'socialism' do you actually mean communism?

    Did you ever take a look at the fate of any country in history that tried to live by a rigid, one-sided ideology rather than just doing what works and leaving the discussions of philosophies to academics? Flexibility is the key to longevity in political institutions. Strict adherence or condemnation of various "isms" has been the literal death of many governments.
