Who's to blame?

I know I haven’t been posting much lately and I apologize for that. I’m making no excuses but (there is always a but) I just can’t really get my mind off of anything other than the bailout/government screwing us over thing.

I’m sick of it. The bailout bill is blatant socialism and it was forced through both chambers by Republican leadership, Democrat leadership, the Whitehouse, and Wall Street millionaires. The way I see it, we have a total of 337 members of the House and Senate who either don’t understand socialism or actually desire socialism.

So where do Grassley, Harkin, Braley, Loebsack, and Boswell fit?

Grassley – I believe he understands socialism but doesn’t understand how socialism begins in a capitalist society.
Harkin – Totally invites socialism. In fact, he’s pushing for it - hard.
Braley – He ain’t no dummy so I think he understands socialism but doesn’t mind a shift towards it.
Loebsack – Who knows. He probably just asked Pelosi how to vote while he was painting her toe nails.
Boswell – I honestly don’t think he understands how capitalist societies shift towards socialism.

This all brings me back to who is at fault. Of course there are a number of different groups we can lay blame to but I’ll just try to list them in order.

Nonvoting public
Politicians (Especially Frank and Dodd)
Education system
CEOs of failed banks

The reason I listed the voters as most at fault is because we can’t blame the politicians too much because they will always screw it up. It is our job to kick out the scum and vote in principled individuals who understand personal responsibility like Tom Latham and Steve King.

I’d like to hear your thoughts on who you think is to blame. Feel free to add to the list.
