11 reasons America's a new socialist economy


By Misty - Posted on 14 September 2008

How free market ideology backfired, sabotaging capitalistic democracy

Here are 11 reasons your manipulations are sabotaging the great principles of leaders like Friedman and Reagan:

1. Dumber than a fifth grader with cognitive dissonance
2. Where did all the leaders go with their moral character?
3. Fed and U.S. Treasury adopted Enron accounting tricks
4. Deregulation creating new socialist housing system
5. Trade deficits outsourced more of America's wealth than jobs
6. Banking system in meltdown, minting penny stocks
7. Ideologues preach savings, but still push spending
8. Warning, the market's under 2000 peak, losing money
9. Inflation and dollars: Is Zimbabwe the new model for the U.S.?
10. Free-market health care failing 47,000,000 Americans
11. Conservative free-market policies inflated oil 300%!

LOL, that was funny...
OMG!!!!! Was an Obama ad just born? Too bad stuff like this is hidden on C-Span3 when it should be on every nightly newscast in the country....people ought to see the liars choke on telling that particular lie when it will be on the record. Thanks Misty, I would have missed seeing it.

His name confuses me... heh, I thought that it would be the administration doing the criticizing.

Heh.

Yeah, whatever, so tell me again who's the lipstick and who's the pig?
Along those lines I found this page to be very informative.  Pretty much talks about how the Republican spin machine has replaced any semblance of principle: http://www.peppermintpie.com/Politics/RepProp.htm
