80. No, we don't disagree.
Edited on Fri Apr-04-08 03:06 PM by SimpleTrend
I was just answering an implied question of yours, a question that may have been more rhetorical device than much else. You probably already knew this, but perhaps some others reading it didn't.

One fundamental that we've got to figure out is how to get our representatives and executive branch, indeed the entire government, off the corporate financial teat. Campaign finance been under discussion for at least 30-40 years (of my news-reading experience), with various 'band-aid' fixes enacted, but the problem seems to keep getting bigger, just like the 'fever that gets worse under symptomatic treatment'. The Lobbyist revolving door is another related issue. We still have the best government that Money can buy.

The Federal Reserve that puts everyone in debt so they can make money out of thin air so we have to pay it back with interest, and which subjects us to continual inflation, is another fundamental issue that needs more than just a band-aid.

Sometimes I think that the problems today are so very bad, the main reason Obama and Hillary are putting on such an emotional see-saw show is to keep us distracted from the really big problems we're facing, while the 'thinkers and power-brokers' are trying madly to figure out the next con-game to shove down our throats so they can continue to pick our pockets.
