    Conservative.

    It's the free market policies that have out sourced our jobs overseas. Go in to any store, pick up any item and it more than likely it's made in Communist China.

    We haven't had a free market in a very long time. What we have is corporatism which is as far from the free market as you can get.

    Amazing.

    Companies in the United States face punitive taxation, ridiculous and absurd pointless regulations, threats of lawsuits for no real reason at all, absurd labor laws, minimum wage laws, racial quotas, inteference from every direction, ...

    ...and some want to pretend the US has a free market that 's failing to explain why the industries in the US are collapsing....

    ....and they promote this pretense so that even more taxes, more regulations, more controls can be placed on businesses...

    Then they wonder why the US economy is collapsing.

    Other then the lawsuits, the US is generally less regulated, have lower taxes, a lower min wage and less interference then any other developed country in the world, yet the US is failing because it has to much of the above?

    Yep.

    Just think how good things would be if the damn government got out of the way and let people have the freedom their Constitution says they're supposed to have.

    BTW, there's a reason why the US has more lawyers per capita than any other nation....because we're over regulated. If we didn't have the excessive regulations, we would have the excessive lawyers.

    Fear of lawyers does more to shut down innovation than anything else.

    And yet somehow they seem to be able to come up with the funds to pay their executives three, four, or five-hundred-plus times what they pay their average workers, whose wages seem to be stuck in a time warp.

    Re: Why the unemployment? A poll

    Unemployment has many reasons, both conservative and left wing reasons and natural reasons. But I see as usual these boards blame the left.

    Like it or not, much of the unemployment in the US is due to the last decade of CONSERVATIVE rule that cause a massive bubble based on greed and deregulation in key areas. But let me guess, it was also the lefts fault because the last decade of conservative rule in the US was in reality massive liberal conspiracy!

    It is exporting jobs abroad and technology.. yes the free world market and globalisation, a very conservative ideal, that has cost the industrial base and hence jobs in the US.

    It is also the fact that the American consumer demanding cheap goods, cheap goods that can only be produced outside the US because the standard of living in the US means that you cant make 1 dollar t-shirts without a huge loss. It is the same principle that is making millions of illegals pour over the border.. American consumers demands cheap food and to get that the farmers need to pay next to nothing to its work force and only the illegals are willing to do the job.

    Now there are also labour laws and regulation in general.. Some are not needed others are, but in general, the US regulates in strange places, often to protect companies instead of the consumer.. that is if they at all regulate. But as long as you have a weak regulatory system in place, then you have use the legal system to sue for compensation when you are wronged. And that is a sad fact... they fuel each other.

    It wouldn't make much difference in the salary of workers if you cut executive salary even by 50%. It's so small a part of the budget compared to everything else.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
