    @ #19 I'm sorry that you have bought into the belief that bigger government is better. Obama's policies have failed miserably. His health care law is now being revealed as a major tax on Americans. Even without full implementation, people are seeing their premiums increased, in some cases as much as 20%. You sound like one of the few remaining people who support Obama. The recent elections were in fact a referendum on Obama although his followers refuse to recognize it. As for taking our economy out of the hands of private capitalist, please, please, please name one society, nation or culture that has been as prosperous, generous and successful as the American Capitalist system. Perfect, no. But our innovations, support of friends, gift giving etc. is un matched. It really amazes me how people like you, Obama and acolytes want so much for America to look like Europe. Well look at Europe. They are virtually in flames. Perhaps you like China or Russia better. O.K. how many innocent men, women and children do we, Americans, have to intentionally kill, starve and abuse as part of our economic system for you to think we have elevated ourselves to the more favorable systems as our communist friends. I so much would love for people like you, those who think that government control is the answer for all ill, to live in a controlled environment for some years. I think you will find a new found love for America.
