Its interesting that you put corrupt morals in context with a " price tag" because that's the bottom line. We've been dealing with corrupted money for thousands of years and the price tag for being content with that model of commerce is that it also corrupts morality until the money becomes what is worshipped and life itself holds no value.
I really appreciated reading what you wrote. It is fair to say that we can agree to disagree on some points. In the end it is all about morals. I believe we get the type of government we deserve. We voted our pocketbooks for so long that we got amoral leaders. I look at someone like Romney who says that his solution is to tax the wealthy less or someone like Obama who said he would take certain actions and once elected, he never did. Our political decisions are based on how something will effect us economically rather than if we are doing right. I sometimes feel that I don't know this country anymore. Peace.

I can't remember the exact order, so someone can correct me if this is wrong, but I think the sequence goes something like, from apathy to slavery to rebellion to freedom and back around to apathy. We're probably somewhere between slavery and rebellion right now. But we have very little faith in ourselves and that's sad.
