I've also read that Neal Peart said later that it wasn't meant as a political statement, but how can you listen to the song and think otherwise? Not that the members are necessarily conservative, but that they're anti-socialist and anti-Fascist. Today, to me, that is conservative. As for the Record Producer, that sounds like one. They're all about greed and get rich from a capitalist system, then talk and donate in a very liberal way. Fortunately, the RIAA and its business model is soon going to be a distant memory.

Even more applicable now than when the song was released in 1978.
He was supposedly forced upon Reagan. He certainly didn't want him.
Thanks for pointing out the facts about inflation. As for the stock market, it's easy to bubble when the Fed makes you practically the only game in town due to artificially low interest rates.
Gruber is an unapologetic liar? He does serve the Obamacare administration, you know. This should come as no surprise. These people don't care if there are transcripts and videos exposing the lies. They know the presstitutes in the "major" media won't out them.
Who reads newspapers these days, especially since most are left-leaning like the Post-Dispatch? You find a much greater variety of opinion and better coverage of issues on the internet.
Excellent point. We have our own problems.
It was fought because of cultural and economic differences (agricultural south, manufacturing north, tariffs, etc.) and the fact that southerners believed strongly in states' rights. Most northerners didn't really care about the slavery issue and most southerners didn't own slaves.
(6) It's just plain unconstitutional.
