Rachel98: Have you considered the more sobering view that Obama, et al (include the rest of the Washingon crew and the FED) know exactly what they're doing? These people didn't get where they are by being idiots, anymore than Stalin, Mousilini, Hitler were. Crazy maybe, but not stupid. I would suggest that we, the people, electing liars, cheats, and theives to high office deserve to be called stupid. But "The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." Fredrick Douglas. And people endure until near oblivion.
