Poor silent Cal, he can't even get a rating on his quote.

The government IS the problem, not the solution.If this bunch in D.C. would quit meddling we could soon get out of this mess.Lowering taxes and especially the corporate income tax would cause our economy to soar. There's a small hope with McCain but B.O.will make things much worse. If B.O. gets elected it's goodbye freedom and hello socialism.

E Archer, NYC

Cal got that one right.

Mike, Norwalk

Direct price fixing is in opposition to the governments indirect price fixing, that being done through inflation, licensing, selective subordination, etc. Both direct and indirect price fixing are unjust.

We need to develop more leaders and try to educate our youth. Our Nation needs to educate the young in how to be fiscally responsible yet also productive and enterprising while maintaining our Liberties. Lets get the young involved in taking back this Nation to the right path.
