2. Well this Democrat doesn't HAVE to accept a water downed version of radical republicanism...

The only way to stop all of this is to stop putting ex employees of the largest Investment Banks in charge of the economy.

Why don't we just try to raise taxes, make it harder to be compensated with Investment Instrument and stop giving special tax treatment to Capital Gains taxes. The idea that we are "taxing" successful investment is only making it more confusing to the non investing public to make a clear decision on whether to support tax policy concerning investments.

If workers are to be "partners" in this economy, then we must be treated the same as investors.

Also, any country that has "free trade" agreements with the US has to agree on paying a "living Wage" to their workers.

While we are at it, if a US company moves production to a third or fourth world country then they will be charged an excise tax before they can re-import their product to the US in order to even the competition between those people willing to work for a buck a day and American workers.
