Socialism is making a resurgence. In this country. And if the Democrats take the majority in 06 and 08, capitalism will be for all intents and purposes finished in this country.
The GOP of today, isn't much for capitalism itself. If it's big business, capable of delivering big campaign contributions, that seems to be OK. Small and medium businesses aren't OK to the Repubs. Tort reform is stalled in Congress. Taxes have been lowered, but not permananently, to keep the threat of a Democratic (socialist) legislature up front. Business regulations passed by prior DemocRATic legislatures haven't been repealed. The BOR isn't in great shape either. The motto seems to be "the GOP, a kinder gentler (slightly slower) path to socialism."
