If we are for personal responsibility then why didnt we let the banks fail? If we were going to spend 16 trillion anyway, dwarfing even Petagon spending, then why not bail out the people in debt which in turn would bail out the banksters? What happened is that we did nothing to help the individuals in debt but we DID help the bankers in debt, bypassing the people who need help but making those same people who got screwed responsible for paying back those debts in TAXES?
What kind of conservative are you that would be ok with taxation being used to prop up failed business? If you were a real capitalist, shouldnt we have let them fail? Economic darwinism? You think the government should be socialist but only for the super rich?
If I was a Republican I would be out protesting too, but for different reasons.
I was shopping for a house during this same period. When I was told what I qualified for and how useful an interest-only loan one be, I thought, "You're out of your mind! Kicking the 'OH unicorns, where am I going to get this money?' can down the road 5 years isn't going to help."Nick_Djinn wrote:Are we to believe that 'the people' suddenly started to behave totally different on a mass scale, and rainbows ed it up themselves, or is it more likely that the super-powers who control the fed and interest rates and the bankers got greedy and tried to manipulate the system for their own gain to our detriment? I think the former is far fetched and the later is probable.
