As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Economic Collapse The Fruit of Bush Rightwing Ideology

For years and years the Republican party has shoved it's flawed ideology of hands off government down our throats. Through the 8 years of the Bush administration the American people have clearly shown in poll after poll after poll more interest in government involvement but this poorest of all presidential administrations ignored the public's desire again and again. Had the people or their Democratic counterparts had their way we would not have this economic debacle.

It should not be lost on American voters that the Republican right wing has wanted unbridled capitalism, which means letting the love of money run rampant, to run it's course continually without oversight and so now it has as we are reaping the fruits of this disastrous economic ideology.
Bush and right-wing Republicans opposed, for so long, reasonable government regulations to keep the excesses of mortgage banking giants in check but now after being so compliant for so long to those interests of big money, in effect, have on their hands a one thousand times worse outcome in the form of the beginnings of a government socialist(what they call it when we want health insurance for the millions of uninsured) takeover of our banks.
The bigger shame is that the religious right, boasting they are led of God, fervently supported and strongly pushed this money serving economic ideology. The tragedy here being that the religious right, so stubborn and sadly unwise will undoubtedly fail to learn to discern out of another fiasco once again even with the truth raining down around them.

Where the Republican candidate for president is concerned, John McCain does possess certain attributes that make him interesting as a potential president but the Republican party at large deserves none of it. Even the simplest of wisdom tells you one can allow human nature to run only so far but even then past failures should inform you immediately of that nature but even the S&L crisis of the early nineties was conveniently lost on the Republicans.
One can say that they knew exactly what they were doing and if it is so it is a a colossal testimony to the indifference toward others begat by the power of money and greed where politicians and CEO's are deluded into ignoring the so well exposed nature of human beings over so many years and millenniums.
There is just no excuse for this abrogation of responsibility in places of power. They are just not learning or they are ignoring on purpose. Either way the Republican party as we have known it has no place in governing over the people of this nation now or in the near future. We cannot afford to lease control of our nation any longer to those so irresponsible and drug-like susceptible to the power and influence of money. Where do we normally put people with such consequential lack of self control? Back on the street in control of peoples lives? Nada. We put them off the streets out of contact with people and, in this case, straight into political rehab., that is if we are nice. Nice will do...for about fifty years.
