Will Bailouts Cost Americans Their Republic?


It has been left to Federal Reserve economists and U.S. Treasury officials to destroy the American system through bailouts spun as anti-recessionary initiatives. What is a severe recession anyway but a well-deserved day of reckoning for financial excess? What is so wrong about the nation taking its needed medicine after a speculative binge?

The New American Dream: Getting Our Country Back!


David Weidner says that the 2008 crash has Americans wanting to loot Wall Street castles since Wall Street looted their homes.
