I've gotta laugh when I hear people calling the Democrats 'socialists'.

____ Lets just say you have gone to town hall meetings, and found a Represenative that shares your views. Then they go off to Washington, they are there a month and some person comes into their office with a way to pay for running for reelection in Two years, how do you think they are going to vote, for ideals or the cash?

Clearly the answer is to eliminate, or at least reduce, regulation and oversight of these financial companies and let the free market adjust itself.
