    Someone should do that to your Military pension so you know how it feels, how the Detroit Police and Fire Depts. feel .
    There is a lot more to Detroit than money speculators, but they sure didn't help.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I also think the 16th was a mistake
    The only problem with the 16th is that Americans are a bunch of whiny pussies and selfish turds when it comes to paying taxes.

    What would you know about Detroit?
    How many other Municipalities in the USA are on the precipice of Detroit?
    Since Chattanooga is close to you, I'm sure you're all in with the Liars Corker, Haslam and Norquist.

    Regardless of Reagan, Thomas Jefferson's adage still applies for me. Most poor people do not speculate in money, but if they had their gross income instead of net, they would be better off. They tend to make their living receiving wages, pay, the sweat of their brow. Not in some money house. I also think if the states could control their senators more than either political party, each state would be better served. We are either a nation of the several states or one huge mass of country where state lines and boundaries mean nothing.

    Actually that is where we are headed, just one mass nation without states. The founders and framers meant for the federal government to take care of the nation, the welfare of the nation if you will. The states to take care of their people.

    I never worried about Tennessee. Georgia has enough problems, a lot of them caused by the fed. But we will cope. Closer to home, I seen what one union did to Eastern Airlines, one of several unions. All the other came to agreement, one, the pilots union did not. Bye, bye Eastern. It didn't hurt the pilots one bit, they were immediately picked up by other airlines, now the stewardess, mechanics, other workers were not.

    But I do not care one bit one way or the other on unions, that is up to the workers and the company. In the private sector that is. What I disagree with is one having to join a union in order to work there. Joining a union or not should be an individual choice. See I am very pro choice here.

    DO NOT vote for Teddy Roosevelt. He was a freemason.

    You mean lack of regulation of the banking industry? Sounds similar to 2008 to me. It wasn't only that though.

    Not even close. Things like easy credit and increase in MS but then the Fed tightened their policies in 1928 and then there was an economic contraction. Economists disagree, though. I generally agree with Rothbard.

    Progress--ive policies that fixed the gerry-mandered Senate (17th amendment)..
    The 16th that scofflaws in the GOP still hate.
    And the foundation for ACA.

    TR was truly a forward-looking President.
    He asked the question, what should it be like in 100 years, just as Lincoln did.
    He knew how much his own gilded wing would fight insurance for all .
    That stuff is okay, but truly embracing the US has expansionist and basically imperial, beyond the continental US- is what really put the country in a position to flourish in the 20th century. He told a people that were basically isolationist that the world was becoming more connected than they had ever imagined, and if they wanted to live the good life, they better start getting involved throughout the globe.

    That policy is much bemoaned by both the Chomsky-esque left and the (still) isolation, John Birch right. It's complained about everyday on Facebook and Twitter and whatnot by both high school students and retirees, and everyone in between. It's cursed on liberal college campuses and conservative town halls across the country. But it's probably the best thing that ever happened to the US.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

Like Thomas Jefferson, I do not believe a man should be taxed by the sweat of his brow. Now money speculators is fine with me. I do not have to agree 100% with any presidents policies to realize who was great, who was average and who is way below average. Heck I would settle for an average president since 2000. TR would be a great bonus.
    Not sure about that. Trust busting was natural and appropriate to the economic conditions of the early 20th century, but these days national governments sponsor mega corporations to keep their economies competitive on the international scale. On the other hand, Roosevelt probably would have imposed far greater demands on the rich in exchange for this privilege.
