In the short or intermediate run we should be heading into a down cycle. And in the long run the top of the economic pyramid has got to stop hogging so much of the goodies if America is to remain some sort of viable democracy.

Even though I tend to be more of a centrist, I see hope in the radical left as a way to counter some of the more piggish Wall Street crowd. Piling up billions in off shore accounts and buying up the government is a banana republic play, even if we do manage to survive the nut job in the White House.
