7. The people at the top don't care which party gets the blame and IMO both parties are to blame.

When you look at how cronie capitalism has taken hold over our gov it becomes obvious that it isn't so much a party problem as it is the rotten core of our gov that is owned by anyone with enough money. Also for those who are for free market capitalism, consider this ...Wallstreet got bailed out! That means that free market capitalism was suspended under the lie of fear of a collapse which delivered the bail out. It's one or the other. Either it is capitalism or it is welfare for the rich. Capitalism lets the penalty for failure occur. If you think that is a problem of party then you have been brain washed by the DLC or whatever it was that caused you to think it was just the repukes. It's not! It is those in the gov that are under the full influence of money and that money is not coming from us except for the massive bail out that they got @ >1% and then reinvested into gov bonds @ 3%. When the truth matters more than politics then people can get a real clue on what is destroying our democracy.

Don't believe me ...I don't know that much but there are those that do and you can check it out here: http://billmoyers.com/episode/encore-broadcast-crony-capitalism/
