    Frank: "We Are Trying On Every Front To Increase The Role Of Government"

    Frank: "We Are Trying On Every Front To Increase The Role Of Government"


    RealClearPolitics - Video - Frank: "We Are Trying On Every Front To Increase The Role Of Government"




    uhm if this is not the correct place for this, I beg the mods pardon....




    I guess it would not be breaking news that democrats want to increase the role of government. But what is breaking to me is about how cavilear they are becoming about it.....


    Do you really want your government's hand in every aspect of your lives? Are you so helpless that you NEED to be coddled by a nanny state?

    Is this, if you are a lefty, one of your core values?

    This is in part simply a method of eventually bringing in some form of World Government.
    A fanciful statement?, I think not.

    Amazing how Barney here so aptly proved my position in this thread
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This is fact and not at all surprising....it is a bit surprising that someone is admitting it up front.

    Of course, this is Barney Frank.

    To be fair the entire quote is "We are trying on every front to increase the role of government in the regulatory area" in response to the financial derivative crisis.

    Why is it good? What specific aspects of the derivatives market do you think need regulation and why?

    The more the Government "makes the market fair" the more we all get poorer for it.

    But hey, we'll be fairly poor right?

    Would sound a little odd if it said "We are trying on every front to increase the role of the government in the non-regulatory area" But ya statements should be quoted till the. period
