I watched this interview, and he does make some points. I agree with him that the current economy is above the general public and that it is being played with by big companies and politicians from both sides.

He never fully answered the question about the hypocricy. His claim that 75% of the general population wants universal health care is absurd. The only change this country is seeing, is the government jumping into the top of the pyramid he's talking about. Socialism will put us all at the bottom of the pyramid and less than 1% at the very top, and universal health care will be a huge step in that direction. He doesn't say he wants socialism, but universal health care is the heartbeat of socialism. What are we suppose to think?

I also notice the interview gets cut off when he is asked what he thinks about Obama continuing the bail outs. He lost some credibility at that point. He also has it wrong about banks. Banks are in business. They do not exist to serve the public. They offer a service and compete for our business (or should compete, the bailouts have removed competition). If you don't want to spend 5.00 at the ATM, then go through the drive-through and withdraw for free. The banks are businesses.

The banks basically gambled with their money. That is their fault. The government played a part in all of it ending with a huge bail out. We all got suckered by politicians from both sides of the isle.

The greatest thing he mentioned was what he felt John Adams intentions were many years ago and that we should all be on that same page.
