    But besides that, both democrats and republicans have both good and bad ideas. You just have to get past all the partisan BS and hyperbole to see it.
    All politics is local. At the end of the day, every single memeber of congress is ultimately doing what gives them the best chance to be reelected.

    Rest: There are still those that do not consider thier self worth.

    I didn't live 200 years ago and neither did you. It has different meanings now.

    They may not consciously throw around their self worth, but in one shape or form they value things that make them feel good about themselves.

    Pride is greed, and my point remains that greed is just one of many manifestations of personal self worth which IS rooted in human nature. So greed will always be present, and just because 5% of the population may not be what you qualify as greedy, does not mean that we should just thumb our nose at the other 95% until they get on board.

    Btw I like your signature.

    Exactly.... my point is, greed is not just an overt phenomena that only applies to the rich.

    I said current congress because it's been taken over far right extremists who haven't a clue how to govern or balance a check book.

    The Federal Reserve is the only thing keeping inflation in check. If you don't think inflation affects the economy, think again.

    If you must know, I'm for whatever works. If the Republicans had a credible plan instead of an agenda I'd probably vote for them.
