By no means are we out of the woods when it comes to economic crisis. I’m not cheering the fact that our economy will be rocked severely.
I am happy, though, that I still live in the U.S.A., not the U.S.S.S.A (the United Soviet Socialist States of America).
Congress must still take action, but the message is clear: Stop the march toward nationalization of our financial sector. Stop the march toward socialism.
We can regulate. We can reregulate. We can stop the fraud and the cheating. We will be financially in dire straits, but we’ll still be free, and the market will eventually correct itself.
My favorite John Kerry quote (though referring to different circumstances when delivered at the DNC in 2004): “The future doesn’t belong to fear. The future belongs to freedom.”
