My last post, "Anger and Angst in America" is a long winded attempt to put some perspective on the reason people may be fearful and angry right now. I probably should have served it up in one or two paragraph lengths over the course of a week. It would have been more digestible, less heavy handed. I may even have confused some readers with the over use of certain terms, giving the impression I am someone who rejects government intervention.
Politically, I am a Liberal. I was raised in a Goldwater household but I went the other direction. I do care to know both sides of every issue and that was the main objective of Sunday's post. It explores a random selection of economic issues over 35 years, illustrating why people are just plain fed up with politicians, corporations and getting shafted. I notice that most of the de-regulatory stances are designed to "increase competition" and "benefit the consumer". Somehow, the opposite keeps happening.
FYI: I have edited the previous post. It's still rambling but perhaps makes a bit more sense than version I.
