It wasn’t PLUTOcrats that brought the economy to its knees; it was BUREAUcrats. Nearly a century of Fed manipulation of the money supply; half a century of government policy first encouraging home-ownership, then forcing it, creating the housing bubble; OVER-regulation (yes, I said OVER) of the financial sector in ways that encouraged bad decisions and risky investing. (The idea that it was DE-regulation that caused this mess is a leftist myth. Regulation exploded under Bush II.)
This election is about one side that at least leans toward limited government and another side that longs for unlimited government. Didn’t the world learn ANYTHING from the 20th century?
