devoish,

I certainly agree that EW is going to have a big fight on her hands from the Republican Party leadership (aka the Banker's Party), but there is a vast array of forces working against her.  It should be noted that Clinton shot down the wishes of his own party in 1993 when Reps Gonzalez and Frank tried to increase oversight of the Fed.  I suspect Obama will do the same to H.R. 1207 if it gets that far (I do hope Obama proves me wrong if he gets the chance).  Geithner, Bernanke, and Paulson - as far as I can tell - have no party allegiance. They'll pimp anyone.  We'll see.

What happened to your other post? I was looking for a response to my suggestion about zeitgeist, and it was missing! Before I jumped to any paranoid conclusions, i thought I'd run it by you...

Ralph,

You aksed me to watch an hours worth of video after insulting me, and the quick glimpse I took doesn't suggest you found a real world small Gov't to model.

as sorry as i am for insulting you, I was merely making an analogy. Hopefully you are not insulted by this. I find it peculiar that those who support an oversized baby-killing government are so typically sensitive, unless it is confirmation of my theory that large government causes a type of reverse Darwinism, I'm not sure... 

 I tried to give you the means to educate yourself, and apparently wasted my time, in that you never really wanted a model at all. I realize that most people who want to post these political blogs are only looking to prove some kinda point, and not looking for a real challenge. You will get your government expansion-let's see how you like it. 

As for zeitgeist, I had a born-again christian watch it with me, intrigued throughout the entirety of the film, but maybe he had a slightly more open mind.   The addendum describes a government system apparently too complex for some to comprehend.  

So you want an example of a small government that has worked? No model for government has 'worked'. They are in a constant state of flux. We are gonna have to pioneer a new system, for the people, by the people, with no vampires skimming off the top, where politicians are volunteers, and middle men, bankers, lawyers, military industrialists, lobbyists, etc. are hung from the highest tree. They don't create anything, only take away, and redistribute to the rich.
