McCain calls for bailout of homeowners [more]
Which candidate is the socialist again?
Which is why I'm voting for Bob Barr and why I gave the maximum legal limit to Ron Paul's campaign.
Actually, the current Republicrats do not endorse socialism but facism. While we associate fascism with dictatorship, most of its meaning defines the positions of mainstream American politicians of both parties:
"A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism."
With an honestly socialist bailout we would execute every single dumb bank executive and then nationalize the troubled banks. Even that would be far superior to our current mercantilist / fascist bailout.
I'm a homeowner. Where's my bailout?
Oh, wait. I own my home, so I don't get help. Where were these bailout proponents when I needed a roof on my house in April (rainy season)? I could've used some help carrying the shingles up to the roof.
You have to get your own TARP.
I should also add that any plan that bails out homedebtors is unjust because it helps the imprudent and the lucky rather than the prudent and unlucky. I already lost $30k on my house, now I rent. Where's my bailout?
Totally disgusting and a violation of republican and free market principles. We really needed candidates like Ron Paul at the debate to bring some rationality to the table. Both major party candidates are complete sell-outs and panderers. However, more republicans than demoncrats did vote against the final bailout bill, so maybe this is the nucleus of a new party based upon principles for a change. The two party system is a total failure!
awesome title sj. :)
I was so puzzled by this, I tend to lean more towards liberal; but even I am apparently more conservative than McCain!
So frustrating that we constantly want to reward bad behavior and punish the prudent.
