USA, Inc.? Voter, Forbid! A polite argument is made to conservative voters, to compare the goals and plans of Romney and Ryan to the First Principles of our country as constituted (expressed in the Preamble to the Constitution.) R & R's goals may be OK for a private profit making business, but don't comport with the goals of a national government "for the People." Also that they expose all non rich people to vastly greater risk over a long lifetime.

Shared Economic Theology Causes Stagnation, Suffering Federal Reserve gave vastly greater aid to corporate "persons" than losses to human persons. ($16 trillion vs. less than $1 trillion.)Both parties share an economic dogma that leaves government and business stalemated over who should provide the jobs. Vast new government job-creating stimulus needed. See "19 Million Jobs for U.S. workers" online.
