I have been wanting to do this head-slap below to every person that follows and believes the greedy and corrupt politicians, businessmen, corporations, and the far right Republican Party because they are told there are wealths to be found when government restrictions are reduced.
Oh, good gawd…. Why do you think the economy collapsed? Personally, I think Clinton repealing the Glass-Steagal Act really caused a lot of damage in addition to Reagan and both Bushes, so it wasn’t just those clowns.
Then add in the brainwashing that any government regulations and control are baaaaad words and are akin to communism. Honestly, the way that Capitalism has evolved into greed and corruption, Capitalism is becoming the bad word and one I really am no longer proud to say.
