    ...and what's worse is that every single Republican policy, every single Tea Party policy and every single Libertarian Party policy has already been tried...and failed miserably.

    We had 100% privatized retirement. It failed miserable, which is why Social Security was enacted.

    We had 100% privatized health insurance. It failed miserably, which is why the People insisted on the creation of programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. These weren't programs foisted onto people against their will. They were created because the People of this country DEMANDED that we take action to fix the failed privatized system.

    Hate regulations? We once had a country with virtually no regulation of any industry at all. And guess what? It failed miserably, which is why the People of this country demanded we put regulations into place to protect them.

    Every single Republican Party policy has already been done and failed. And, you're right, they all go back to the 19th Century, when the Robber Barons ran things.

    My biggest problem is that Democrats have been very ineffective in pointing out the fact that Republican ideas have all been tried and failed. EVERY SINGLE ONE.
