We've been scouring the data for clues as to what we should learn from what happened tonight as President Obama relatively easily claimed a second term.

Capitalism was a practice in the Americas a long time before Europe was remotely organized into a single society itself. American Indian culture and infrastructure can be traced through archaeological findings back some 11,000 years.
What you classify as a jungle was actually a network of interconnected communities stretching from Mexico City to Oregon in North America.
Your claim to be an American citizen is suspect. Or, you are intentionally trying to minimize the people and culture occupying America before contact with Columbus. Your claims of what America was and it's people prior to Columbus are bizarre and misguided.
Karl Marx's invented the word Capitalism.

WOW! It took those civilizations hundreds of years and NEVER accomplished what the USA done in less than 200 years!
Notice that the world history is mostly abusive dictators and kings, the kind Liberals love!!!
Million of death by Russia is music to the Liberals evil discussing ears who love death (ex: abortion) over life!
Where has there a Dictator existed in the last 50 years who didn't rise to power over the people of a nation that didn't have the support and backing of America?

here's a hint, look at the nations where oil is produced first...... ROFLMAO

America has always supported tyrants who maintain dictator so long as America's interest is preserved. America isn't interested much in human rights, we are strictly involved for the profit.

How Capitalism Works

In this article, we'll explore capitalism: its roots, principles and effects, benefits and shortcomings. We'll find out how capitalism compares to the alternative method of doing business. Incidentally, the United States doesn't actually practice capitalism. No one does these days.

Which may be true, but the infrastructure of nations to host open market trade and the establishment of trade routes existed long before Columbus contact with America.

Due to its proximity to neighboring countries, the Arabs established trade routes to Egypt, Persia, and Byzantium. As Islam spread in the 7th century, mercantilism spread rapidly to Spain, Portugal, Northern Africa, and Asia. Mercantilism finally revived in Europe in the 14th century, as mercantilism spread from Spain and Portugal.

Sorry to burst your Liberal bubble but
the countries that produce oil had dictators, kings and SULTANS, long before America existed!

Liberals hate America, that is why they are Liberals first and never American patriots.

Hey, American hater, which country sends more emergence aids to other countries?

The Native Inhabitants of the Americas worked nothing like the system misrepresented as capitalism as you think you understand.

There has never been a period in America when the settlers came no matter where they had come from that was void of taxation. Where did you get that half wit idea?

Initially those settlers who came owed a tax to the kings of England, or where ever they arrived from. Those colonies were chartered either by corporations who paid the taxes or by the crowd who collected the taxes from the various individuals through the governors assigned by the crown.

You are revising American History to fit your narrative. Just as there has always been a program similar to Social Security for the benefit of widows, veterans and the disabled from the point of organizing the settlements. Social Security that republicans hate was derived from that very social safety net.

Is this the best you can do in answering the question, Where has there a dictator existed that American hasn't supported and backed in the last 50 years?

You think our Foreign Aid makes up for supporting tyranny around the world?

Our Foreign Aid usually greases the hands that supplies access to the natural resources we seek. Do you honestly think we would be in Iraq or Afghanistan if either of those countries didn't have resources we would like to slice and dice to produces good for a market?

Where has America been in conflict that didn't have some under lined purpose for exploiting?

This is baloney, routine after a Republican administration there is economic chaos in America, the debacle George Bush left is no different than the catastrophe left by Richard Nixon when he resigned, and similar to the horrid economy under Reagan who tripled the debt to get the Economy moving and raised taxes 11 different times across the board.

You're speaking purely from a fantasy, a delusion to believe that Republicans have ever implemented economic policies that has had a positive impact over the entire American Economy, that day has never arrived here in America, nor have they ever not expanded both the Debt and Deficits in America.

The Stupidity in what you're proposing is that tribal societies such as the Americas were don't believe in possessing something that benefits the entire clan, they have no concept of possessing land, the ultimate asset in the system of Capitalism.

Capitalism by it's very definition is the ownership of all goods and resources in that system being Labor, Plant and Capital all necessary to produce some good or service for a medium of exchange.

Texas pays "shit" and created more jobs than any other state!
NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- Texas has created a lot of jobs over the 10 years that Rick Perry's been governor -- there's no doubt about it.
Perry, who formally launched his presidential candidacy on Saturday, is making his state's economic prowess a centerpiece of his campaign. Already he's been bragging about his state being the "epicenter of job growth."
Texas has gained more than 1 million net new jobs in the decade Perry has led the state. And it's been going strong since the recession ended.
"We are home to fewer than one in 10 Americans ... but four in 10 new American jobs are in our state," he told a conference of state legislators from around the nation this week.
http://money.cnn.com/2011/08/12/news/economy/...
Liberals HATE Texas so much that they claim, in their fairy land imagination, that Texas created the less jobs in the world! LOL!!!
I knew a fool like you would bite on that one - here's how marvelous Perry did you dumbfcuk;

"As Gov. Rick Perry continues to tout Texas' low-tax, low-regulation business climate as the secret to the state's relative economic strength, critics have pointed to Texas' unemployment rate and low-wage jobs, noting that Texas ties Mississippi for the highest percentage of minimum wage workers.

The debate raises several questions: What jobs do Texans commonly hold right now? How much do those jobs pay? And what jobs is Texas creating?

According to statistics from the Texas Workforce Commission, the annual median wage in 2010 for all occupations in Texas was $31,500, or 7 percent less than the national median.

The most common occupation sectors in Texas were office and administrative service, sales, and food service. Of the three, office jobs had the highest median wage, at $29,300. Food service had the lowest median wage of all occupation groups, at $17,700 annually. Together these occupational groups made up more than a third of employed Texans."

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2...

"Texas, however, still faces many challenges on the jobs front. Many of the positions that have been created are on the lower end of the pay scale. Some 550,000 workers last year were paid at or below the federal minimum wage of $7.25, more than double the number making those wages in 2008, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics"

China is based on a form of Socialism(Moaism) which is not even close to Communism just in name which Communism has never existed but China is more towards true Capitalism which is why US Corporations are moving there to begin with verus staying here in the United States which is because in China people cant vote themselves someone elses money like they can here in the United States and China's form of Government operates like a plutocracy and if China was really Communism, US corporations would not want nothing to do with China then. Remember Karl Marxs says every society starts out is based on Socialism as the Society evolves it has two Paths society is going to go one towards Capitalism or the other path towards Communism which is what Lincoln & the Republicans favored because it classless and everybody is equal.
