@cbae: You should take a long hard look in the mirror and see if that post is actually more about yourself then about whomever it is adressed to.
The less regulated economies are doing better then ours, if that isnt proof, I don't know of anything that will convince you of your views.
Socialism has never ever worked, the free market is what your ancestors used to create a world power.

And now I'm going to give these threads a rest, as we end up performing the same moves.
Do you have hotkey assigned for posting this garbage? You repeat this * over and over gain, and you've never explained how you go from point A to point B when you reduce regulations.
Please explain what particular regulations caused banks to commit fraud, caused companies to become too big to fail forcing the government to have to bail them out, caused 3 companies to accumulate $200 billion to the detriment of competition, caused the top 1% to see their wealth increase 300% while the middle class has seen theirs go up by single digits. Seriously. Quit talking out of your nether regions and provide any shred of proof to back up your nonsensical talking points.
And just to make clear, I have not advocated socialism. Don't confuse taxing and regulating free market companies as socialism. You are thoroughly confused, my friend.
