Your inability to craft an argument as an educated American is proof positive that you are only an Obama supporter. Relax. Within a few months Americans will replace Obama and improve your situation whether you like it or not.

It is much better to put them into straight up slavery.. That is what privatiziing everything is all about. Give all the power to people that don't have to answer to anybody.. Fascism is the wave of the future. Low wages to the workers who are allowed to have jobs. No benefits of any kind. Longer hours.Less time off. Less freedom. Welcome to Mitt's America...

Obama Stakes His Re-Election on Bain Attacks
Obama says his escalating attacks on Romney, whom the campaign has dubbed a “vampire” for making profits as workers were being laid off, are not petty politics but part of a larger debate about economic fairness. Can the president succeed again in this argument without the help of the Panic of 2008?
PITY THAT OBAMA HAS NOTHING TO RUN ON BUT ATTACKS…………..even his own party is trying to shut him up. They know Wall Street has given Obama more money than anyone in history.

I really do not care Jimbo - and you should know that.

I do think Obama will win, much to the dismay of the RePugs.

I don't like either one - but lessor of two evils remains Obama.

Here is my shared political viewpoint, just in case you have forgotten.

I think that he wants to go in the correct direction but is being hamstrung by the RIGHT. And it has nothing to do with whether they agree with him or not. Many of the policies he is trying to get through are one that the Neo-cons have endorsed in the not too distant past. The righties would hate for the citizens to have universal health insurance(which is what Obamacare is) so that everyone could get health care (which is whata Obamacare is not). Having the workers rely on the corporate royalty for healthcare prevents many independent entrepreneurs from striking out on their own. That would lessen their power significantly. They are like drug pushers wanting to make you hooked on their product.

The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics
Fascism
by Sheldon Richman

As an economic system , fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer

Where socialism sought totalitarian control of a society’s economic processes through direct state operation of the means of production, fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Where socialism nationalized property explicitly, fascism did so implicitly, by requiring owners to use their property in the “national interest”—that is, as the autocratic authority conceived it.(Nevertheless, a few industries were operated by the state.) Where socialism abolished all market relations outright, fascism left the appearance of market relations while planning all economic activities. Where socialism abolished money and prices, fascism controlled the monetary system and set all prices and wages politically. In doing all this, fascism denatured the marketplace. Entrepreneurshipwas abolished. State ministries, rather than consumers, determined what was produced and under what conditions......

The fascist leaders’ antagonism to communism has been misinterpreted as an affinity for capitalism. In fact, fascists’ anticommunism was motivated by a belief that in the collectivist milieu of early-twentieth-century Europe, communism was its closest rival for people’s allegiance. As with communism, under fascism, every citizen was regarded as an employee and tenant of the totalitarian, party-dominated state. Consequently, it was the state’s prerogative to use force, or the threat of it, to suppress even peaceful opposition.

Fascism and socialism are at one end of the spectrum, anarchy is at the other.

Fascism, communism, and socialism are nearly identical, in that all three ideologies place ultimate power in the hands of government.

Anarchy is total lack of any government whatsoever, entirely the opposite of fascism, communism, and socialism.
