You do realize that saying things like "You'll forgive me for relying upon three decades of reserach as an economic historian to your ranting Marxist dogma" is meaningless?
1. No one in America is a Marxist. Let us take a poll of Americans and find out just how many Americans believe there shouldn't be any private property, everything owned by the state. Let's just take that poll shall we? Because if there is private property there is no communism. You, sir, are missing your brain.
2. Three decades? Is that all? My research goes back to 1776. Did you know that none other than Washington himself lost lots of money in the first ever stock market bubble in the US?
