Re: Hope and fail?

Yeah let's blame everything on our president when there's a 1/3 of the government called Congress that doesn't know how to work.

We all secretly want our democracy to be run like dictatorship.

Selective memory.

Did you people forget how many times Congress faced shutdown over the past four years?

Since when did the Republicans care about people's rights?

The Republican party was founded to free blacks from the slavery of Democrats. The first elected woman to Congress was a Republican who voted in the House before she could vote to put herself in, Republican states gave women the right to vote before the federal government did. So since the beginning Republicans have been concerned about people's rights.

Jim Crow, slavery, separate but equal, blacks only, and what not, all Democrats. A Democrat Governor (Wallace) tried to stop school integration, and was stopped by a Republican President (Eisenhower). You should learn a bit about history.

I'll give it to you that Ron Paul would make a very good foreign policy advisor.

Everything else though is crazy due to the neoliberalism and philosophies of the 'invisible hand" which serves to mean deregulation.

Essentially, deregulation didn't promote competition; it promoted monopolies.

So in this video he's talking about free market competition, he wants to deregulate the system and let anyone who wants to jump in the business have the rights/easyness to do so thus creating a competitive market, how do you fight "everything else is crazy"? And deregulation didn't promote monopolies, people who were willing to sell their businesses to larger companies is what promoted monopolies for multiple reasons.

Another thing about that is that if you have a truly competitive market do you really think monopolies will continue to exist when mom and pop can open their own ISP locally as well as 5 others and all the sudden people have more choices and can vote with their wallets? That's the problem today, you can't vote with your wallet, if you leave company A to go to company B company B is usually doing the same thing as company A, maybe some minor differences and people are just choosing the lesser of the 2 evils, same as with Republicans vs Democrats.

Re: Hope and fail?

What you pointed out is what republican were. There is almost no connection between them in this day and age. Both dems and reps now run a fusion policy where they will take up a stance if it benefits them and that is all. Basically they are both fakes and liars if it is needed to win some seats or election.

I absolutely cannot agree with any one party on majority of their "stances". I really wish there were more pro-people independent candidates. I rather vote for Mickey Mouse than any of the current clowns in the running.

Oh and to FCC boss: "Kill him with fireee!"

Some of what you say is true, some not. Both parties have problems with being purchased by constituencies. At the same time, Democrats still like racial discrimination, today it's called reverse discrimination. Republicans for the most part would prefer not to have racial preference. Personally, my preference would be to have those who have been disadvantaged culturally and economically get extra help.

Elizabeth Warren is an example of whats wrong, claiming to be an American Indian. Similarly Barry Obama may have claimed to be Kenyan, which could have opened the doors to Harvard Law School for him.

Elizabeth and Barry weren't exactly disadvantaged as a kid growing up in an inner city with great poverty at a failed public school. I'd prefer for kids who go through that to get help, regardless or race.

As to the FCC, I think candidate Obama promised an end to the revolving door, but it seems the door revolves faster now, at least at the FCC.

We can't let regulators know they will get cushy jobs with the regulated if they behave appropriately (for the regulated). Neither party has been particularly good at clearing this up, but it seems the current administration is very very bad at it.
