Quote of the day.....

French President Nicolas Sarkozy says that the economic maelstrom that has captivated the world's attention for the last 17 months is "not a crisis of capitalism" but, in actuality, a breakdown of a system that has "drifted away from capitalism's most fundamental values."

From here. My opinion is that he is partially right. The United States has definitely drifted away from the basic tenants of capitalism and the basic tenants of American values starting 70 years ago. We have been on the slippery slope ever since. The World has played with Socialism since early in the last century. My question to the the statists, is "Whee has this socialism worked?" Soviet Union? Post WWII China? North Korea? The dead hand of socialism is the solution that Americans want today. It is the death of the nation.
