    sharon, your point about a free society providing equity (i.e. sicio-economic “justice”) falls flat. Your methods are also nonsensical. Stopping companies from profiting makes absolutely no sense. Why sould someone spend his life building a company if there were no reward in the end? To whom could he sell his company? Who would buy an unprofitable company? His life’s work would be futile. And he would see that from the outset and never try.
    America’s responsibility is to make everyone free. Let the honest laborer work and keep as much as he can. Let the carefree slacker pursue happiness today and face the music tomorrow. Let everyone learn from their successes and failures and from each other’s. This is what happens in life. And trying to change that has only led to death and destruction. The great socialist state of Sweden has low crime and low poverty. But the children also don’t have fathers because a man is not beholden to his children in a cradle-to-grave society.
    Let every man sow and reap his own. Personal, not collective, responsibility is what made America the most profitable, and most stable country the world has every seen. And low taxes and small government are fundamental to the country. Our is the last great capitalist state. Let’s not let it fall with universal health care in 2012.

    I am assuming by what I read you are proposing that we either
    weaken or remove ourselves from the IMS. This is needed
    if we are to recover. I would like to see the Bretton Woods system
    put back in place since it’s removal in 1971. I’m old enough to remember that it did work even in a crisis slightly more severe
    than today. History has a way of repeating itself and if the Republican party wants to rebound it had better start listening to labor and the working class people. We’ve sided with big business
    long enough. Look what happened on Wall Street! The only thing trickling down is the sweat….well never mind, we won’t go there.
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not for give away programs to either rich or poor, but their has to be some equity. Stop with the tax breaks to businesses that export jobs. Want did Congress think would happen years ago when you guys let companies send jobs overseas. Stop companies from profiting, protect workers rights
    and give incentives to those who provide benefits for their employees. As a Doctor you should be behind all employees having health care. If some of these measures wooould have been taken we wouln’t be in this mess today.
