    Actually, classical conservatism has a heaping helping of classical liberalism in it.

    Because in about a week's time, support for Obama's ideas went from a high majority to a small minority.

    Oh, and about Obama. Yeah, ya think? Our country thrives on drama. If the presidents ratings are to reflect anything like the average americans opinions, it will change CONSTANTLY.
    According to the Fed and the Congressional Budget Office (as linked in the article), there probably won't be anything there when you retire, now that we've opted to follow the route of Japan and FDR: needlessly prolong recession by trying to borrow, tax, and spend your way out of it.

    Hahahahahahhahahahaha

    You're probably the most entertaining member as you said "treasonous tyrant" as if a dictator could be considered treasonous.... a dictator is the law, and is the artisan changing and baking the law...

    I'm an American liberal and I believe in liberty, as long as it does not hurt anyone else. Honestly, I don't know how you get off making this crap up! Tell me the Liberal platform that is advocating against liberty? Or is that all hush hush at the moment....

    That's because they don't get elected into office.
    People like that usually have too much integrity to dance along with the puppet show that is put on for the voters. If Modern Liberal has a definition than perhaps I am wrong but I live in modern times and support much of the "classical liberal" ideology. Perhaps an error in symantics, grasshopper.

    I've been heavy in gold and platinum since the price bottomed under $800, along with TIPS for good measure. The only stock i got into was CREE, right around the beginning of the year, which is deemed as a "stimulus" stock due to their lighting efficiency capability for commercial and industrial operations.

    But no, i would not index or even attempt to diversify in stocks at the moment, way to much volatility and risk. Municipal bonds are my next move, as we have coupons around 8% here in Indiana.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
