Ain't that somethin'... Truly he's presidential material.

This was a reader''s letter in response to a NYT article ttitled "Socialism, American-Style":
State capitalism, which despite the author's assertions otherwise is what this article is about, cannot and will not work any better than the failing crony neo-feudalistic capitalism of today, the laissez-faire capitalism of the Gilded Age, or any other genre of capitalism. The world's problems are too large for the profit motive to solve. Growth, growth, growth is all capitalism understands and capitalism requires it as its oxygen. It is destroying and will destroy the planet for future generations.
Capitalism will die. One way or the other. As it looks, it's going to be a very, very nasty, destructive journey and the consequences of the current path suggest the finite constraints that the Earth imposes on growth are imposing themselves and will impose themselves to such a greater degree that even the stupidest free market fundamentalist will understand what it has wrought. Don't look for economists to understand this; they are useless after their years of immersion in bankrupt intellectual economics. Don't look for politicians to understand; they are useless, self-important, self-aggrandizing, partisan cowards.
Pope Francis seems to be the only responsible "leader" that has a clue. Imagine that; a religious leader that doesn't ignore science and all that which is staring humanity in the face while the academic economists -- conservative and liberal alike, -- are immersed in idiotic fights of the last 30+ years of worthless neo-classical economics.
This is shaping up to be the most entertaining presidential election in decades. Sixteen -- count 'em! -- candidates, and they're all a hoot. not a one of them has any integrity. The only other election I can think of that may have been near this entertaining was 1968, and there it was the Buckley/Vidal debate sideshow that was so funny (immortalized in YouTube, harmfully). and not the candidates themselves.
I must say I do rather miss that bimbo from Wasilla...
You are truly a master of the nonsensical non sequitur. Maybe you should apply to Faux Noise as a commentator? You would fit well in Palin's former slot.
"...you are confirming Richard Herrnstein's research and it's resulting IQ bell curve..."
...and you, you seem to be heIIbent on personally demonstrating and proving the existence of the
Dunning–Kruger effect, which includes being too stupid to recognize one's own stupidity.
You might also want to review your use of the apostrophe before you accuse others of having a low IQ.
" People who believe these things are not "conservatives" or "patriots" or any of the other things they wish to be called. They're mostly just deeply stupid.
Gotta love that RWNJ logic - it can be turned inside-out so easily!
Care to specify? Anyone who has ever flown in one would likely disagree with you (except perhaps those who flew with Qantas 32 on 10 Nov 2010).
Amendments can be eliminated/replaced. E.g., the history of Prohibition: 18th Amendment approved 1919; repealed 1933 with the 21st Amendment. That's a direction a sensible country and its lawmakers could take to bring the US back into the fold of civilized nations.
