Re: "They own the economy, we just play in it"

Wrong. This is supposed to be a capitalist country, not socialist or communist. And the secret is, for now, anyway, it is! WE own the economy, the government just tinkers around with it and politicians disingenuously take credit for it when it's good. The basic misunderstanding of the American citizenry about basic economics(and Civics, for that matter) just astounds me....and it portends the potential loss of our wonderful free-market economy and freedom itself if more and more of us choose to be ignorant and belive the lies of socialists like Bill & Hillary.
