I think we're in a market evolution.
Remember when I blathered on about globablization and it's effect on an alleged income polariztation?
The way I see it from down here (from the micro, micro, micro level), both Kerry and Bush were offering economic protectionism against globalization in their campaign speeches.
Neither one satisfactorally addressed the demise of individual entrepeneurship which is what I see as being our global economic ruin and used to be our pride.
Anyway,privatising SS would just about have to boost the stock market wouldn't it? That's a good thing.
But, just like the Medicare HMO's proposed in FL, you don't actually get a choice do you? The government will give you your "choices" to prevent you from being stupid. I think Piq addressed this somewhere. So, it's not really privatizing and it stands the chance of being grossly biased and defeating the idea of capitalism. Who's to say, the great leaders won't choose Cheney's defense companies and Bush's oil companies? Oh I'm sure it wouldn't be blatant...
The HMO's for FL Medicare will be hand selected by Jeb. Not like he's ever had any curious dealings with HMO's... (GOOGLE IMC Jeb Bush)
A man is the sum of his actions, of what he has done, of what he can do, Nothing else.
