Re: “A Tale of Two Economies

One of the comments mentioned the false capitalism we're seeing, and I think that's the root of the problem. Republicans can agree with Democrats and others on some issues, but when it comes to voting time, those who call themselves Republicans will always choose what they've been led to believe is a capitalist over a socialist. Better dead than red worked then and it works now.
Labeling Democrats as socialists, while wearing the cloak of capitalism, has given the Republicans the upper hand for decades. Dems keep having to prove they aren't socialists, while NO ONE questions the Reps on their non-capitalistic actions (Corp Subsidies). Libertarians had a chance when Reps joined out of disgust with Bush2, but quick thinking Reps lumped them with radicals and voila, tea party.
Now, the Reps are giving voters another false choice: radical tea partuiers or plain ole Reps or those damn socialists Dems. And voters who left will return to the Republican party they "know" and regard Bush2 as just a bad apple.
