    Not after the Lehman default. We're in a state of financial crisis and the Republicans put us there. Just wait until next week's polls.

    America knows who put us here. FDR & LBJ. I can't wait for the debates. I may not have my guy in, but I look forward to watching Obama & Biden get absolutely crushed in the debates & general election, as much as Ken used to look forward to the opposite.

    Right on, Bro. Curtis. For anyone interested in a serious reading on the matter check out FDR's Folly by former Cato Scholar Jim Powell.

    I love the CATO folks.

    Yup, the seeds for this mess were sewn in 1932, and if you think this is bad, just wait for the Medicare & Social security nightmares that are most assuredly coming. I expect that a lot of folks who look to Uncle Sam for food, clothing, & shelter, (food stamps, welfare & section 8 housing) will get awful cold, hungry & wet.

    [off topic] I like Palin as a Republican and were she at the top off the ticket I'd vote Republican. She stands for freedom as much as any mainstream politican does. Libertarian feminist Katherine Mangu-Ward likes her quite a bit for these reasons.[/off topic]

    That begs the obvious question of why didn't the democrats?

    But we already have the answer. They were too busy forcing lenders to take bad loans they didn't want in the first place.

    And I still do.

    John McCain - Wrong for America. If there was any doubt the meltdown in the financial markets today removed it.

    The Democrats have controlled the Congress for 1.5 years. How many years have the Republicans controlled the White House? How many years did the Republicans control the Congress. This economic mess isn't the result of the past 1.5 years. No, it is the result of 7.5 years of Republican incompetence in the White House and the Congress.

    It must be product of our modern education that makes us believe all our economic problems are the fault of one political party and can be solved by another political party. The less government - of either party - is involved the better! People who really have good ideas on how to make and sell things of value - exchange of goods and services not skimming of taxes and grants - can generate real opportunity - jobs - to build wealth and prosperity. Progress comes about by work. Government doesn't do any real work. They only skim from the work of others. The long term historical product of all the parties has given us nothing but a rampant interference in the marketplace with regulation on top of regulation. We now believe government is the only thing that can save us. We choke our businesses with limitations. We try to force social engineering through the marketplace. We run to the government every time there's a crisis in any marketplace. We - the citizens - demand the government take care of us and they're happy to do it. I see no significant change in the right direction any time soon but I do see more of a threat in the wrong direction from the Obama camp. Their line is the one that appeals to those who want the government to save them.

    This mess is a direct result of those who want to move this country to a socialist/communist state. Moving money from the states to the federal level only to reduce it for paychecks and then returning it to the states with rules attached. The most inefficient way of handling money. Both Republicans and Democrats are responsible. The Dems want more and more federal control which is unconstitutional and contrary to what this country was founded on. The republicans buy into more and more programs as a means to get votes and not be painted by the libs as mean and uncaring. This poor management and ridiculous spending spree has gone on far to long and no one is clear of it. When the neocons move back to foundational conservatism, states rights, and constitutional government then this country will be back on track.

    What we need is more community organizers and less representatives in congress. Do you really want to address greed, hunger, sexual perversion, and poverty? Get government out of the way.

    The dems were in control of either one or both Houses of Congress for more than a generation after FDR...and when there was a dem president working with them, why change? And when there was a Republican like Ronald Reagan in office they were more concerned with trying to destroy him.
    When Bill Clinton helped the Republicans take control of both Houses in 1996 their hands were still tied b/c of Slick Willie having veto power.
    Now i will admit that from 2000 to 2006 the GOP having control of both Houses and the White House should have led to more reforms and losing in 2006 proved that.
    So there you go...6 years in over 50 that the GOP could have done something; where as the dems had the vast majority of that time to change things and didn't. And they claim to be the party of "change"? Why now when they had ample opportunities before?
