So are you saying they are such a small percentage, it would have not hurt at all to let them file bankruptcy and not have wasted money via bailouts and such? When the government wants to bail them out, they acted like there was no tomorrow. Now, that the government is invested, they act like it's just a small thing.

You cannot pay attention to the words used by this administration.

I'm saying the Right's calls of Socialism! are exaggerated talking points. If your only choice is to take money from the government because you ran your business unsuccessfully, you shouldn't be surprised when the government starts telling you how to run it.

I personally wouldn't have bailed out the automakers. Not sure there was a choice but to bail out some of the financial institutions.

In total agreement there. Is it not possible that Barry is a socialist, though?

Not if you truly understand what the tenets of Socialism are.

He said himself he wants to spread the wealth. He wants to give tax breaks to people who don't even earn money. Call it whatever you want....it sucks.

By definition it was Anarchy/Rebellion.

That was the spark, but the flame was intended to be a nation with the smallest possible government.

Not necessarily true. There were those who advocated a strong central government, more similar to Englands but with the necessary "democratic" changes.

In the end, the Federalists got their way for the most part, with a strong central bank, the ability to create a Federal standing Army and Navy, revenue cutters and exise taxes..The idea of a weak Federal government is based mostly on the simple fact that a lot of the nation until the late 1800s was sparsely populated frontier and empty land that was simply ungovernable.

As an agrarian, minimally populated nation, the idea of small goverment makes more sense. In the modern post industrial era, the concentration of people, economies and communication make a strong government a necessity to keep things both running, and running for the peoples benefit as much as possible.

If we want to be a nice, quiet country with no military or economic aspirations, then by all means let's get less complex.

If we want to lead the free world, that's just not an option.

I don't really understand what so many people are complaining about.

90% of the complaints I read are ignorant, and haven't the slightest idea of what socialism is.

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
