    Both parties are in the pockets of Wall street.  Clinton signed the law deregulating big banks.  Clinto pushed NAFTA on us too, thus he is the true father of the policy of exporting U.S. union manufacturing jobs overseas.

    Obama let Wall Street criminals excape punishment for causing the our current depression.  And he did little to end too big to fail banks, that we taxpayers must rescue evey time they get into trouble.

    My point isn't to slam the Democratic party.  Instead, people need to realize that elections won't save us from being crushed by big banks, same as they haven't saved the people of Greece or Spain.

      It is usually not a good idea to put all of that in a campaign ad like I was proposing.

      The question is, do you want Obama or Mitt Romney to be elected?  If the answer is neither, we should be having this conversation elsewhere.  I can actually add some things to your list about Clinton but this is not the time and place.

      We have a choice in this election between a somewhat moderate plutocratic conservative and an extreme plutocratic right-wing authoritarian.  I'll take the economy slowly plodding along to a recovery as opposed to it nosediving into a capitalistic disaster meltdown ripe for the pickings of a corporate mindset like Bain.  

      I believe the world economy is a net zero game and for every loss, there is a gain.  There is a lot of publicity about all of the losses all over the world but you can bet there are equivilant gains occurring as well and they are the advocators of austerity and regressive tax reform.

      In our leaders, we have champions of a "slow bleed off of the worlds wealth" from the left and champions of a "Take as much of it as you can, as quickly as you can" mentality from the right.  Pick your own poison and advocate for it.  I, for one, and the rest of this site has chosen the slow bleed.  Choose who you wish but respect the house you happen to be in.
