haha... what an ignorant and weak response.
I guess my book knowledge renders your ability to debate me difficult.
I see great things in store for the US, Canada and the Global Economy.
By any chance, are you trying to apply the "think positively, and it'll happen!!" idea and hoping that it will prove fruitful??
You're so naive, newageman.
Then again, I'm the eternal optimist and see the largely cynical view as being fundamentally irrational.
Ah, ok. So, my claim that protectionism is a step in the direction of socialism is an 'irrational fear' - and not based on the erudite research by a
standout expert on the subject like Frederich Hayek??
This is how I see it. Even though you are spiritually mature, here, you are showing that even the spiritually mature can sometimes lapse into
spiritual immaturity. What I'm trying to get you to understand - and what you're resisting to even acknowledge - is that Obama is not a savior. Not
just that, but that his policies undermine the constitution, insomuch as the constitution seeks to protect certain inalienable rights that socialism
Government needs to be kept far away from business. It has some jobs which are necessary, but protectionism, jumping in to to save a business from
failing.. What do you think that does? Think. A monopoly, when it becomes bailed out by government, is now owned by the government. The corporate
giant is now within the governments centralized power. You don't see anything wrong with government extending itself into industry? Do you understand
how this imperils liberty? Do you know what socialism does to people who 'want' to pursue their own individualistic path??
And yet "I'm being paranoid". An easy response.
Check yourself NewAgeMan. If you aren't educated in a certain area, don't pretend to be.
