Who are "the four fathers"?
If you actually learned how the commodities market worked you would realize how ridiculous your suggestions are. Buying a futures contract does not set the price of the commodity....the market does that. If the price rises above the price of your contract you make money, if it doesn't you loose money. Or you can short the market and make money if the price falls below your contract price.
You are absolutely correct, "inkling". Thank you for your factual breakdown of fascism and how it fits in to our situation today.
The Dems call these people "useful idiots".

You are right!
Few so called "programs" work---they are the problem. And... Why would you think that people who don't have enough self reliance to get and hold a job would be successful running an "employee-owned factory"? If government regulations against hiring people wee removed many of these people would be hired and they would have a chance of gaining the experience they need.

Wow! Must have been a very clean floor that you thought O wiper with Romney, because NOTHING stuck! O got so frustrated that Romney would not bite on any of his well rehearsed traps he was trying to set. It was a clear win for Romney.

Where do you get the idea that $100/month is going to get you in to see a "real doctor"? Only about 25% of doctors will see Medicare patients now, and that won't improve as they continue to pay doctors less for the procedures they perform. Many doctors are just going into early retirement rather than putting up with the bureaucrats whose main job is to try and figur out new ways to keep from paying doctors for the services they provide.

Mitt Romney Is Not the Answer

So..... Can't get elected these days if enough financial backing can't be arranged. That's a big part of being "electable". Yes, Romney has personal wealth, but that in itself is not enough. He is also able to get donations amounting to many times more than he is willing or able to furnish from personal sources. If his personal fortune was the most important factor, then I would say the presumptive nominee would be Donald Trump. By most estimates his net worth is several times that of Romney's.
