    There was nothing wrong with the competition we had before Voodoo Economics. Most citizens are not doing as well after 30 years of supply side economics and financial deregulation as they were before, so there is no incentive to keep voting for those that just wish to continue supply side economics and financial deregulation.

    Greece is in recession, Great Britain has slipped back into recession and the entire Euro area is looking at zero growth. Just what economists predicted after the austerity budgets were forced down their throats by the right wing bankers. You must be happy, Republicans love recessions, it's what they do best. 71% of the last 14 recessions happened under GOP administrations. A record to be proud of for sure.

    And aren't the GOP proposing austerity measures here that the CBO just warned would create another recession? Why in the hell would we do that with the experience of Greece in our face?

    You don't want to point to Greece. If they get thrown out of the EU, there will be a depression in Greece. Living conditions will be hellish.

    Yep, that's why I plan to vote against the austerity measures the GOP are proposing that the CBO just warned could bring on another Recession in this country.

    Actually, inherited wealth seems to win in our society. There's no doubt about that!

    I spent a bit of time there and I cannot say their "living conditions" are all that great now.
