    That's fine; however, its usual good practice to use proper English; but to each his own.

    To Obsess:

    Preoccupy or fill the mind of (someone) continually, intrusively, and to a troubling extent
    Google

    A Belief:

    Something one accepts as true or real; a firmly held opinion or conviction
    Google

    Hope this helps ...

    Well, whether or not you lied, you failed to prove your point. So if the accusation was you're a liar, it still stands.

    The best way to improve economy is:

    1. Higher taxes for all China - Commodities.
    2. Stop of Outsourcing.
    3. More Patriotism in Economy.
    Rom 6:23:For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    The problem with that, those wouldn't be capitalistic. Especially number 3. Patriotism has no place in capitalism, and I think we probably both agree that is a problem.

    Well this is really getting pointless, and the counter-evidence has already "stomped" you, so good day.

    You make an interesting case. Though, do you avert your eyes from the far left that wage a class war against the wealthy class?
