    Re: Enlightenend Society

    What a poorly created poll. The subject is "Enlightened Society". Did you mean "Entitled Society" or something else?

    Then you ask about one party fixing the economy. What hubris that economy needs fixing. The history of the world is that any mandated economy will produce unintended consequences. Look at the culture of Greece where tax evasion is a national sport. Pick any other underground economy like the "illegal" drug trade. How is that one working out?

    The Democrats are in on the fix, along with the Republicans. They ain't looking to fix nothing.

    Well for two years they have and for the next two--welcome to the game--a GOP Mandate. Obama must give them what they want

    The right question to ask is: "How long will the Democrats control the White House, the Senate, AND Congress, all at the same time? You don't have to look very far to find your answer.

    Don't you think two years of enlightenment was enough to keep the Left in total domination, indefinitely? Instead you got your a**** kicked, and helped bring the Tea Party into the spot light.

    The economy doesn't need any fixing.

    Those who deserve to be living well are.

    Those blue collar workers who got too greedy had their jobs sent to China. They are getting what they deserve.

    They're what needs to be fixed.

    The US officially made a shift to the Left during this last election, as the majority of this Country voted for Barack Obama, for the second time. Liberals and Progressives are considered to be the "enlightened ones", so it stands to reason that America has officially stepped into the "Enlightened Age". In essence, we have become an (or the?) enlightened society, hence the name of this thread. It's now up to the shepherds of enlightenment to overcome what little opposition they have left, and guide this country to Utopia. The question is, how long will it take?

    I suppose never. Seems like everytime they do, a Republican moves in a screws it all up.

    The economy is like a sand castle. The dems build it, the GOP comes and kicks it down.

    So I'm going with never.

    Soon as they figure out to pay for the last 40 years of enlightenment first.

    These are the errors in thinking. Government can't *fix* the economy. The economy self-corrects well, if left alone. Government pouring money into it only prolongs imbalances, and prevents it from working efficiently.
