Your clip is of some lesser-lights of the left; of yes we have as many as you do, but that says nothing about the truth of where our evolving society
needs to head, it is simply pointing fingers again. I don't listen to your idiots...and you should not listen to ours.
The truth is that when a hedge fund manager can make $3.9 billion as a salary in a year from many people's lost retirement funds; where Goldman Sachs
can cause severe economic trouble because of their selling two-sided bets under a gambling scheme that they created without divulging the odds to the
suckers they scammed and to the rest of us who suffered because of it; when a system rewards greed; feigns ignorance on the destruction caused; etc.;
well it leads us to take a critical look at what can we do better.
In my personal view, the answer will be found between the two ridiculously extreme views that the radicals like the Tea Party and Michael Moore put
out there. Can't we just get along and have a real debate between sentient and sincere citizens instead of being guided by silly extremists? Can't we
do more to control the greedy whether they be people who don't want to work, or corporate stooges who are willing to back wars but not invest at
I think so and I hope that there are others out there who do too. America is too divided and will stay there because unfortunately the masses will
only be guided by inflammatory soundbites. We need a strong centrist and critically reasoned position based on centralism together. The libertarians
and socialists have trouble accepting anything else but their own illogical views. They may have the right under free speech to spew their drivel, but
doing so without understanding that just like foreign nations and the USA can agree to free trade agreements, we have to negotiate, work honestly and
give in, to find the best solution.
