    The answer, in my view, is regulated capitalism -- keeping markets free enough so that you provide that incentive to work in one's own self-interest, but regulated enough so that most people have an opportunity to make their own lives better (not all become zillionaires -- that can't ever happen -- but so that most people, with enough hard work, determination, and good decisions can improve life for themselves and their families) and so that we take care of those who cannot take care of themselves.  
    Perhaps we differ only on the means, not the ends.

    The "extreme wing" of the Democratic Party is the wing that is hell-bent on protecting the banks and credit card companies. ~ Kos
