    Ok, what regulation do you have a problem with?

    What in the world does that have to do with unregulated capitalism?

    And if the Republicans don't represent the middle class then nobody does because the Democrats have been doing their damndest to destroy it and make everybody dependent on government for a very long time now.

    It shows what happens when capitalism has no regulation to little regulation, there is literally no denying this.

    No, it doesn't. Nothing about America is unregulated. Well, unless the product is brand new, but even then most likely it still falls under a few regulations.

    If capitalism as it stands now with regulation is already having such a divide, unregulated capitalism would be worse, and you can look back in American history to see how "great" it was before regulation.

    Did you ever think that perhaps the divide is caused by the regulation?

    Look back in American history before regulations and get back to me, or I will ignore you.

    They also have voiced opposition to Obama's plan to provide free community college and opposed extending unemployment insurance to unemployed Americans.

    Students don't want to refinance a loan. They want a job so they can pay the damn thing off.

    Do you honestly believe the government to give you honest figures about who is actually out of work?

    But I get bored with one-liner insults and assigned talking points really quickly so I'll be moving on. I am pretty sure I can back up my numbers. Do have a nice day.
