    Expecting a person to pass or fail on his own merits IS the American way.

    If some companies can't cut it, too bad for them.

    If they're important, they're making a profit and don't need help. If they need help, they're failures and must be allowed to die.

    Would it be different if those companies were taking the left piss?

    None of them "deserve" to be "helped", everyone one of them is in the market of their own free will, to swim or sink as they can. That's the nature of freedom. It's worked for, well, forever.

    Okay fair enough.

    Not if it costs me my money, they don't.
    Is this about nationalization serving no useful economic purpose, or helping failing companies serving no useful purpose, or is it about your money?


    If they're important, they're making a profit and don't need help. If they need help, they're failures and must be allowed to die.
    Most firms make huge profits and help America prosper, and have this potential, but cannot do so in such harsh economic conditions. Its only right these companies are guided through the hard times, and the thousands of jobs of others are supported, so that when this economic crises ends they can begin to prosper again. Allowing so many jobs to go would be economic suicide. Thats more of YOUR tax money in forms of payouts for the unemployed. Either way taxpayers loose


    Would it be different if those companies were taking the left piss?

    Your are joking....right? I need to stop using these British phrases with Americans

    Free market to the end Scarecrow, eh?

    Not to mention that many Democrats are in bed with the unions and recieve contributions from the unions. I mean we couldnt ever expect a politician to do what is right when it goes against personal gains *gasp*.
