    With the government in near danger of a having a serious financial crisis a socialist economic plan that stresses benefitting everyone and not just the rich8who favor take breaks which they think will do a better job of helping the economy but in reality puts more money in their pockets.

    Just think, if that 700 billion dollar bailout money was divided and given to the *PEOPLE* instead of the banks things would be alot better than they are now.

    Wait, given to the "people?" Since we, the people, are paying for this bailout, aren't we just giving money to ourselves? Seeing as the wealthy pay more taxes, wouldn't the lower income taxpayers be the only benefactor? Isn't that socialism?

    Then again, if the only alternative is giving it to me or giving it to the banks, I'd vote for me.

    Our tax dollars are taken from us and given to God knows who, if the government took those 700 billion dollars and evenly divided among our country's 300 million people there would be no more poverty, why give it to banks who screw people over anyways by living fat off the interest from the investments they make?

    When everyone has a fair share or at least a reasonable share of the wealth things can only get better, not worse. Only a small amount of the population controls the majority of the wealth in the US, how is that making things better?

    Charlie, please tell me you are joking? If every man, woman, and child was given X equally, within short order the biggest and smartest would control most. Has been that way since time immortal, with or without slavery.
