    I've always felt like the powers that be in this country. Republican or Democrat, they all have the same goal. Endgame: Communism. Democrats are the fast track to communism, we all know that. The Republican party is the slower track, the way to make the citizens feel they have a choice. The general public will follow their leader to the grave, Dem orRepub.

    In order to take the nation down the path of communism, the government must take control of every aspect of our lives.

    They've alredy taken control of education, for all intents and purposes. 80% of professors in colleges are hammering wealth redistribution into these young'uns heads every day.

    We have a welfare system keeping families dependant on the government for generations. Keeping minorities classified as victims so they won't expect any better for themselves.

    We've spent God knows how much money to bail out airlines time and time again, only to see them file bankruptcy. What happened to all that money?

    Now we're "bailing out" huge finanacial institutions. My own belief is that the government is buying out rather than bailing out. Do you really believe politicians are "loaning" these institutions all this money without being able to pull strings behind the scenes? I don't. The federal government doesn't pass up an opportunity to take control of anything. Haven't since Lincoln.

    Next will be the auto industry. They'll cry help, get huge chinks of our money and then file for bankruptcy. They'll be followed by the farmers, who won't get a fucking thing. We'll import all of our food, giviing us closer ties to other communist nations.



    After that is health care. Face it people. One day we will have socialised health care. It may well be a Republican that gives it to us.

    There is already talk of nationalizing the oil industry. I believe that is the hang up on drillnig here. They have to figure out how to control that from D.C. Once they do, you'll see the oil start pumping and an initial drop in gas prices, followed by a neverending gradual increase. Think stamps.

    Am I crazy, or does anyone else see this?

    The government recouped over two-thirds of the money it spent bailing out the S&L's. I only hope the same thing happens this time around.
    Be Not Afraid.

    It doesn't scare you that the government is getting involved in every facet of our lives?

    I didn't say how much slower. I admit, it's getting faster and faster on the slow track. The Dems moved to the fringe left so that the Repubs could move left and no one notice.

    I wasn't a fan of the bailouts, especially AIG, but not doing so would have had much worse implications across the economy.

    The government will never let these banks fail again. It's why we'll never have another depression. The gov did nothing for the banks in '29. They won't let that happen again.

    It would be hard for a couple years, but we'd be better of in the long run to let them fall. Remember E.F. Hutton?

    The Republicans are not the slow track. Sure, Democrats love government and would love to expand the government in every way imaginable, but generally speaking, they're stupid and incompetent. If they were in charge, sure they'd try and go all out and get some kind of socialized health care system in place. Would they succeed? Maybe, maybe not. The Republicans would oppose them, out of spite that they aren't in charge, if for no other reason. You put a Republican in charge, though, and shit gets done. Usually though massive deficit spending.

    Take gun control, my personal favorite issue. What's worse, the FOPA and import bans or Brady and the Assault Weapons Ban? Oh that's right, Republicans love Brady and the AWB is gone. To top it off, back to the Democrats being incompetent bit, the AWB was so pathetically written and the "Democrats are going to take our guns" feelings so strong, that it probably got millions of people interested in semi-autos who wouldn't have been otherwise. Clinton should get a medal for all the black rifles he helped to sell.

    You could end private gun ownership in the US in fifty years with only minor amendments to existing laws. You're lucky the Democrats have spent the better part of twenty years distracted by assault weapons.

    I got side tracked a bit there, but basically what it comes down to is that while the Democrats may advertise a faster path to epically big government, the Republicans are the ones who deliver it. Either way though, that's what we're going to get because it is in government's nature to grow, justify its own existence, and grow some more.

    I agree with everything you've said here except on one small detail - I think the powers that be in the world are pushing towards global communism. They won't stop with America, no sir - if it happens here, it will happen everywhere. I don't think it makes you a 'truther', just someone who puts things together.
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    Remember you said that when you're carrying a wheelbarrow full of Gippers to the store to get a loaf of bread.
