Drinkingwithbob on: No Democracy in America

He blames Barack Obama when it is the U.S. political system that is the problem, but his points are well taken.

The New York Times Op Ed page has more influence on the U.S. government than the majority of the people in this country all saying the same thing.

But the other idea is that desegregation wouldn't have happened at all if it was left up to most of the people in the U.S. So there are limits to governing by popular will.

Someone needs to take that guys cocaine away.

What he does not realize is that in the case of the banks, there had to be bailouts. If the banks collapse.....well lets just say last time that happened it was not good.

And a lot of people were all for the undoing of the regulations that allowed the banks to get into a crack in the first place.
