Furytrader, I'm not surprised by your reply, a vague and factless personal attack that avoids the subject and argument altogether. Calling me a leftist tells me a lot about how you think. Unfortunately there are a lot of people out there who learned what they know about political science from Rambo and Chuck Norris movies in the 80's. The belief that on the far left you have commies and on the far right you have libertarians, that right is good and left is evil, is absurd, false, and totally untrue. On the far right you have nazis and fascists, not libertarians. On the far left, yes, there are the dirty commies. In fact they are one in the same, they are collectivists. Collectivism is not about foodstamps or health insurance or helping the needy out, it's not remotely connected. It's an evil defined by a vertical power structure, totalitarian, authoritarian, with an all powerful monarch or ruler atop the pyramid. It's a system of Orwellian group think where the ruling class is always right, you are either with us or against us. If you don't want your rights privatized and sold off to the communists in China you better WTFU.

I'm a centrist, not a leftist. I do have some liberal views of how the world should be, such as the legalization of pot via and an end to the brutal and costly war on drugs, freedom of choice in all aspects of life, and concern for the environment that it should be protected from profit blind corporations. So yes, I do have some liberal concerns. I have many more conservative ones as well, free markets, low taxes, etc. It's only in the center however where things get done and progress is made. If people don't come together soon and take back the Congress, the whole world, not just America, is in for a nightmare.

The more I read from syxforex, the more I realize that he's what is called a "concern troll" - according to the Urban Dictionary: "In an argument (usually a political debate), a concern troll is someone who is on one side of the discussion, but pretends to be a supporter of the other side with "concerns". The idea behind this is that your opponents will take your arguments more seriously if they think you're an ally."

Obama secures the socialist vote as Hugo Chavez says that he'd vote for the President

"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has weighed in on the U.S. presidential race, saying he prefers President Barack Obama.

'If I were American, I'd vote for Obama,' Chavez said in a televised interview that aired Sunday.

The Venezuelan leader called Obama 'a good guy’ and said if the U.S. president were a Venezuelan, ‘I think... he'd vote for Chavez.’....."

Major Oil states have been very outspoken against the Keystone pipeline. Where Obama is against Keystone, Mitt will get it rolling on day 1 of his Presidency. Chavez is also facing an election so associating himself positively with a political figure that people everywhere seem to like must be a good campaign strategy.

I would just say that the term socialist does seem to be misused a lot around here as it is not a left of center phenomenon, it occurs on both side of the spectrum equally. Left wing socialists are communists, right wing socialists are fascists. It would seem that the world's ills at the moment are a result of a new world order fascists phenomenon. Whoever inherits the massive US bureaucracy is by definition going to be a socialist, be they left or right wing.

Would the Monsanto Man, given the ultimate power position, really scale back the size of government?

I should not be in this crazy thread, just thought this piece from Columbia University's Earth Institute offers some interesting food for thought.

Finding the Keys to National Prosperity by Jeffrey D. Sachs - Project Syndicate

Also good read is Stephen Roach's Macro Malpractice, a good piece regarding the Fed.

Much Ado About Nothing

It's becoming increasingly clear that Mittens is totally nuts, but is that really any worse than a polished, genial psychopath?

It's worth reading the whole thing....


Quoting 
And so it goes on the backstretch of the emptiest election contest in memory. The nation simply can't contend with the existential problems it faces and doesn't want to hear about them. As far as I can tell, nobody is paying attention to the campaigns, not even the reporters, certainly not the bloggers, who have their eyes on the riots and other kinetic unravelings related to the money crisis in Europe. Here, where anything goes and nothing matters, everybody just goes through the motions of electoral politics. It all has the odor of a ritual that nobody remembers the original purpose of - namely, to govern, i.e. to manage society's collective affairs. These days, nobody believes that our affairs are manageable, and their perception is probably correct, especially when it comes to paying for it all, since accounting fraud is now the basis of all financial operations.

The Romney election fiasco will destroy the Republican Party, just as the Whig party fell apart in the last days of Millard Fillmore. The religious nuts and Dixieland ignoranti will demand the expulsion of all non-extremists and Karl Rove will be left at the Nascar track with Honey Boo Boo on his lap and a dwindling "base" of shrieking microcephalics awaiting the second coming of Adolf Hitler in a green satin Mountain Dew race-day jumpsuit.

Meanwhile, genial Barack Obama glides to victory and then presides over four more years of implacable contraction that will make the Great Depression look like an episode of Cake Boss. The contraction is upon us because peak oil is for real and shale-gas / shale oil is what used to be known as "a bill o'goods" which one is sold by underhanded means and, boy, was this country sold. BP, Chevron, Exxon-Mobil and the gang carpet-bombed the cable news networks all year with shale propaganda and now everybody and his mother thinks we're going to run Walmart indefinitely on the rectified rock-farts of North Dakota. The sharpies over at Spin Central haven't figured out yet that true "energy independence" means living without the oil you need to run your stuff.
