    Capitalism has never been "unregulated" in the United States. The market before the collapse was heavily regulated, and post collapse will be regulated even more.

    You're preference (of course) is more pro-corporate; more a benefit to the 1%ers' bottom-line. In that sense, you're probably right.

    I find it to be so amusing that so many of the "less intellectual" among the population fail to understand that it was the Democrats that really created this mess to begin with, starting with FDR, and then Johnson, Carter, and Clinton, and now they expect them to fix it. That's REALLY funny.

    Clinton himself even admitted that it was policies during his administration that led to the current crisis, but where are all of the calls for him to be held accountable? Oh, that's right, he's a Democrat, so of course the partisan political hacks on the left would never say anything against him!

    Your quote simply backs up my assertion that there never was a "free market" to begin with.

    No....what's REALLY funny is how WRONG Republicans have (typically) been!!

    "The deficit four years from today will be higher than it is today, not lower." — Sen. Phil Gramm (Republican, Texas; McCain economic-advisor)

    .....And, that's why Republicans did everything they could, to marginalize Clinton. He cleaned-up Daddy Bush's economic-debacle!!

    :p
