It is an economic folly from which this country has every right to be spared.”
Calvin Coolidge

    The government IS the problem, not the solution.If this bunch in D.C. would quit meddling we could soon get out of this mess.Lowering taxes and especially the corporate income tax would cause our economy to soar. There's a small hope with McCain but B.O.will make things much worse. If B.O. gets elected it's goodbye freedom and hello socialism.

    Direct price fixing is in opposition to the governments indirect price fixing, that being done through inflation, licensing, selective subordination, etc. Both direct and indirect price fixing are unjust.
