This points out that localization of as many facets of government can help this situation. Other than military/foreign affairs why isn't everything done at the community or state level. Much more accountability at that point.

oooohhhhh... Did I hit a nerve?

You got one thing wrong... my "propagandistic bullshit articles from worthless sources" doesn't impress YOU. Let others speak for themselves.

You did however get one thing right... Yes, most of my articles are indeed left-wing propaganda. You got me!

Just so you know... I already confessed to being stale and unoriginal (regurgitated) in a previous post... I believe I said this: "... as of lately I feel pretty intellectually belittled myself. The reason for this feeling is because I have started to realize how unoriginal my posts are, and that I see almost all other posters as unoriginal too."

You might not have read what I wrote in the "Obama the socialist?" post because you were too busy trying to be RIGHT and prove Cayo wrong. That's one of the main differences between you and I. You are not willing to be wrong. You can't let it happen, can you? You will do whatever you can to justify and rationalize why your unoriginal thoughts have to be right.

I went on to post a link - in "Obama the socialist?" - to a book that is far from propaganda. Ironically, this book IS about propaganda and how WE ARE ALL SHEEPS! You included, buddy. If you took the time to learn who it is that wrote this book you would see how foolish it would be to call the author a "left-wing propagandist."

Baa, baa, baa... so goes the sound that comes out of the sheep. I already know I'm a sheep... I just choose to wander away from the herd. I don't want to follow the political and economic leaders anymore because I know now that the direction they are leading me is not in my best interests. You can go ahead and continue to follow the bewildered herd. Baa... And, don't give me this.. "America is the greatest crap." I already know this, and it is why I am still grazing for grass in land of America away from the bewildered herd and it's idiotic stale-minded leaders. baa...

Let me ask you this... when you are writing all of your posts, what is it that you defending, Kevintee? your ideologies? your economic education? the US gov't? the Chicago economic philosophy? the "free market"? - even though it doesn't exist. what is it?

baa...

I actually did read your post, and I bookmarked that link you posted so that I could read it when I get time. Just didn't associate it with you.

I defend my ideologies, I like to believe that I've come to where I am from having read various sources from both sides of the fence and seen some empirical analysis and then made my own mind up as to what I believe. Now whether just my arrival at that conclusion means I am a sheep I would disagree, and say its not the conclusion you draw but how you arrived there.

Anyways, if you get a chance you should read a book called "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" It is absolutely fascinating and very incriminating of many of the free market institutions we currently employ especially the IMF. I feel like you've made assumptions about my education to the point where you think I've only heard one side of the story and took it as gospel, you would be very wrong. Just because of the side I support doesn't mean I haven't considered the other. (As if we are even talking about a linear discussion haha)
