AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
As for your post most of those positions do not describe liberals but positions that they may or not have. The only one on the list I would wager all liberals have is more environmental controls. I know for a fact not all liberal are pro-choice, not all liberals support stem cell research let alone fetal, and I know that majority of liberals by polls taken recently say that 55% of liberals support the death penalty with 75 percent of conservatives supporting it.
Do you even know anyone who is there (the Wall St protest)? Do you know what any of them do for a living or anything about any of them? It is pretty pathetic to make judgments about people you know nothing about. Not to mention, I already posted you the dates of a week-long Tea Party rally. But what do you care? They, just like everyone else, have a right to voice their opinion and protest. It's sad that you dislike it just because you do not share their views.
