    The right is hungry for leadership -- go ahead, organize something.

    You aren't seriously proposing an official 'run on the banks'?

    Well this is the "change" that the majority of America voted for right? What a disastor these next four years are going to be.

    The disaster of course is the legacy of the Bush presidency that will take a generation to fix. :eek:

    In all fairness, economists are split on the issue. Hell, I saw one economist report that their trend models show that the stimulus package will prolong the recession by 2 years and the best action would be to just take the recession and do nothing

    See that's the thing, when Obama was running for election, he promised less spending from day 1, and this was even after the financial collapse and he knew we were in a deep recession. As of now, we are going to be running the highest deficit on record...over $500 billion of the stimulus package is going to become permanent mandatory expenses...not exactly what we were promised...

    But in truth, it's our fucking senators and congress people who need to be tarred, feathered, and removed from office...we need to put them all out of office and start over fresh with people who aren't all lawyers and career politicians; it's not exactly a democracy when the majority of politicians end up serving their whole lives. Democrats and Republicans are all the same, in the end the only difference is their rhetoric. My whole view on voting: vote for the person the majority is voting against, because the majority is usually wrong

    Same tired ass bullshit i see. Bush is no more responsible for this than Clinton is. Obama got elected because he promised the American people that he could fix the problem. If he cant and makes it worse then its HIS FUCKING FAULT not bush's, asshole. He wanted the job, he owns the results.

    I'm serious about this too. We need to not re-elect a single representative. Not because I don't believe in democracy, not because I hate the country, but because our entire political spectrum, from liberal to conservative, is corrupt.

    They use ear-marks as both carrots and sticks, throwing money away just to get what they want. People in this country need to wake up and realize we don't NEED our government to do anything except defend us as a nation. Our government doesn't make our country what it is, our representatives do not make our states and cities what they are, it's the CITIZENS of this country who make America the great economic engine that it is.

    Our federal government is too big, our politicians are all corrupt, and special interest groups are abusing the system. We need to tear it down, and start electing people who aren't apart of the good ole' boy's club. Impose more laws on our lawmakers, and less laws on the states and the citizens that reside in them. Power should reside in the states, not the country. Once the federal government gets too big, we will no longer be able to impose our will on a force so big, that is cripples anything that contests it. If you're a democrat, still vote democrat. If you're a republican, still vote republican. But do everyone a favor and stop the corruption, don't re-elect a representative.

    Nothing is getting vetted, and everything is getting rushed through like we are still in emergency stimulus mode (a joke in itself). Tax the rich, tax the rich. Dumb fuck libtards have no clue it'll be the middle class that bears the brunt.
