    And no Government should be tasked with the job of stopping or controlling greed.

    We've been down that road before and it didn't turn put well.

Not once in American history has unfettered capitalism existed as law. And each time that individuals and groups exploited laws we as a nation have responded. To get you fair dues for work has always been the unifying goal of Americans. In fact our nation based on such views.
    Capitalism is a mechanism by which individuals can accumulate vast amounts of wealth. Along with such wealth comes vast amounts of power in which the political system as well as the ideological environment in which people think can be influenced. With such power at their disposal, if people are not vigilant, the system can evolve over time into a tyrannical oligarchy. I personally find the recent erosion of civil liberties and privacy to be particularly troubling. It appears to me that in the name of security, we seem prepared now to sacrifice the very mechanisms that have allowed the nation to respond in the fashion that you referred to. We need to be careful.

    Thoughtful people should try to devise and create mechanisms such that greed does not develop to the level that it becomes destructive.

    I think perhaps you are projecting. Don't blame your greed on others.

    Gee, another poll spammed by leftists with nothing better to do than skew the results of an online poll.

    Here are the real results, if anyone is interested. Looks like the "nos" have it, not a big surprise.

    I am not a greedy person. But that's not what we are talking about. I claim you are projecting your greed upon others. What other explanation could there possibly be? You are greedy, and therefore assume everyone else must be as well. In other words, typical lib.

    But that's what I'm talking about. If you are free from greed, then why are you so perturbed by the numbers in an informal poll? If you are free from greed, then why is it that what I am saying troubling you so? You say I am projecting my greed onto others, but at the same time you yourself are not free from greed. There are some intelligent people that post on here, although we may disagree, I think that very few of them would seriously put forward the notion that they are free from the quality of greed.

    Ah, I see. So, everyone is greedy. That's very convenient for your "theory".

    Hate to break it to ya, not everyone is greedy.

    Lol !!

    " Thoughtful people " ? Who and what determines who is " thoughtful " enough to create these mechanisms ? Because every " thoughtful" initiative to control Greed so far has included Tyrants, Dictators and Socialist initiatives that came with profound consequences.

    When Chavez rolled in and Nationalized all of Venezuela's major industries it was under the pretense of " Fairness " and equality.

    What he delivered was a large increase in State debt, inflation rates that are the highest in the world, private businesses have been expropriated private businesses, Nationalized Private Industries and private property.

    Chavez railed against Capitalism while he implemented reforms that are responsible for the basket case that is Venezuela today.

    The people that elected him weren't thoughtful, they were uneducated, easily manipulated and the perfect example of just how destructive low information voters can be to their Country and their people.

    As a Thoughtful Conservative I don't want people like that ruining the futures of my Children and Grandchildren.
