We have come a great distance in seventy-five years; from the New Deal to the Raw Deal, from having nothing to fear but fear itself, to being afraid of everything.  We traded democracy’s warm heart containing the ideals of faith, fairness and frugality, for the greedy, cold calculations of the Dow Jones ticker. 

The New Deal saved free market capitalism with jobs and regulation; now both sink in the swamp of speculation, manipulation and capitulation. The Golden Rule of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” is submerged by the rule of gold, “do unto others before they do unto you.
 
“Some people will ask of this Congress, what were we thinking?  Why did we give $700 billion bailout to Wall Street without fixing what caused the problem in the first place?  Why did we rig the free markets for security fraudsters?  Why didn’t we explore alternatives to let Wall Street solve its own problems?  Why didn’t we have money to save millions of homeowners, create millions of jobs, and a green economy?  Why didn’t we stop the speculators?  Why wasn’t there accountability?  Why didn’t we take time to make an intelligent decision?
 
“Why? Why? Why?”
