I wont even bother to dig into this socialist garbage.
To those who are easily manipulated I would suggest that they research for themselves, there's another side of the coin to everything.

I think you'll find that America as our Founding ForeFathers founded it to be slowly degraded into something else within the first 50 years. Not 200 years. In the last 200 years we have seen many changes come to play because of the erosion that happened between the 1770's and 1820's.
move most of the working middle class into a new 'peasant' class.

One of the biggest problems the US actually faces is that an entire swath of its young adult population has been brainwashed into thinking that 'freedom' is something that only applies to music and sex. The notion that 'freedom' also means economic freedom has been, somehow, twisted into the world of the taboo by left wing propagandists.
It's just sad to see an entire generation that is growing up without anything more than such a shallow concept of freedom. Stockholders are evil, being in control of your own economics is evil... Bush is evil because he won't let kids steal music from the internet... and on and on and on... Hopefully, one day, this generation will realize that there is more to freedom than sex and drugs and the ability to whine when you can't have all the sex and drugs that you want.
Until then I'll just have to sit through more tirades about how evil Bush is for believing in free enterprise... which, and sorry to break this to all the Maoists out there, IS freedom. Sex and drugs aren't freedom. Being able to own your own life is freedom.

Bush owns Congress and the Senate. Neither body will block any new legislation's passage without a public outcry. And that's the strategy's weakness.
