  1. Are you implying, Ben, that the participants and organizers of this Rally are in opposition to the government? Because if you are, then I suggest you look up the word “opposition” in the OED. If anything, the Rally is to support the government by way of criticism.. this is the American way! And if you read the website for the rally, or talk to people who are going (such as myself), then you will find that the “insanity” this rally is meant to draw attention to is the bickering, the politics, the gross lack of realistic perspective, and the overall lack of maturity of our government, in all its branchs. The huge number of people that WILL show up for the Rally will show how fed up people are with our government and the inability of our elected officials to act like honest, mature adults who know how to have passionate discourse without making their party lines (their differences) the only thing that matters in that discourse. Furthermore, this Rally is truly drenched in positive spirits because it’s not a “Rally Against Insanity in Government”, it’s a “Rally to Restore Sanity”, which, even grammatically, connotes positive energy and positive thought (both of which our country really needs). So to answer your question Ben, I think you are not asking the right question.

  2. All government is wrong. But seriously, I won’t be satisfied until every politician who voted for the bailout is no longer in office.

  3. Even though the vast majority of the bailout money was repaid with interest? This isn’t exactly a case of bankers robbing the government blind. The government, and by extension the American people, made a profit on this and averted what would have been an even worse economic situation than the one we are in now. While it was unpopular, it was ultimately necessary.

  4. What is this tea party talk from Stuzynski? Move to Colorado and buy a gun and all of the sudden you’re a flag bearer for the republicans? But seriously, none of us will know what the right choice was or would have been for another decade.
