10. Mr President, Our Government has spent the decades from Reagan
through Bush: Giving every advantage to the elites and most especially
Big Business. Tax cuts, Waivers on paying tazes, Billions and
Billions(Taxpayer money) in Cash Incentives, Absolute Freedom to roam
the world seeking the cheapest labor(increase profits for Elites by
keeping business cost down. Relieved Business of almost all responsibility
through De-Regulation.(Let the Market work its will. "The great invisible
hand" has proved it works just fine for the upper class. Over and
over the Rich have gotten richer. Think of the Millionaires who have
become Billionaires over time. If we are honest with ourselves we
must admit it does not work for the working class and poor. The Free
Market Policies that deed indeed work for the rich were the same policies
that sent not just low wage jobs but better paying IT jobs out of the
country. Immigration was used to bring in lower paid workers in
all levels including HI TECH(H 1-B visaa).

I am not playing class warfare. I want us to get so many millionnaires
we are top heavy with them. HOWEVER, we must save our Democracy.
For Democracy to flourish we must have a vibrant middle class and
very few poor.

While I love Greider, He has been a voice in the wilderness warning
us for years, I will go with Bernanke(scholar of the Great Depression.)
He says they were not wrong just too slow and stimulus then not large
enough. FDR saved Democracy and saved Capitalism.
