So complete unfettered capitalism didn’t work out for the Americans.  In their time of need they turn to the presidential candidate with the most socialist ideals (I’m not saying he’s a Socialist), probably the correct choice.  Unfortunately they didn’t think of making that choice 4 years earlier when they were living the Republican high-life. “No taxes for us, keep your hands of our money, government!”  But now when the help is required there is no money left to help out.  Nothing comes for free in this world.  They are looking for a ‘Convenient Socialism’ as opposed to the type of socialism you have to pay for like in the Scandanavian countries.  Higher taxes, but less peaks and valleys.

Oh well, the old saying still holds true–live by the sword, die by the sword.
