...the world would again ride the wave of prosperity unequaled in history. No one can hide their failures and their faults, but they should not tear a nation down or cower it...it should rise above them and learn from them. The left in this country are now being led by socialists who can mark their failures and dowfalls by failed and destroyed countries in great numbers. America learned from it's mistakes and moved on....with Capitilism, and a republic of free people and free thinkers in free markets (note the word FREE here please). Your leaders seem to think that because we are America, Socilaism can somehow suddenly work. And it's people like you that will help us find out, yet again, that it doesn't.
