  •  Your opening quote of McCarthy (6+ / 0-)

    pretty well describes the truth.

    Joseph McCarthy
    "There Are Enemies From Within" [speech excerpt]

    This indicates the swiftness of the tempo of Communist victories and American defeats in the cold war. As one of our outstanding historical figures once said, "When a great democracy is destroyed, it will not be from enemies from without, but rather because of enemies from within." . . .

    The reason why we find ourselves in a position of impotency is not because our only powerful potential enemy has sent men to invade our shores . . . but rather because of the traitorous actions of those who have been treated so well by this Nation. It has not been the less fortunate, or members of minority groups who have been traitorous to this Nation, but rather those who have had all the benefits that the wealthiest Nation on earth has had to offer . . . the finest homes, the finest college education and the finest jobs in government we can give.

    I lay the blame for America's destruction on greed by CEOs, the republicans, the democratics who think like republicans and the Bush gang.  They don't care what they destroy.

    We need regulations and Obama needs to have each government job that controls anything, financial to drilling, audited and investigated.

    We didn't say Wealth Care, we said Health Care
