Nobody wants control. We want freedom. We should be allowed to do as we please.

But, without controls, the bully takes over the schoolyard. He makes the rules.

Our country has become an oversized school yard. The bullies are gradually grabbing control. They have bought our lawmakers, dictated the new rules. Their goal is to make a "King of the Bullies" into a president.

If you think we've got trouble now, you ain't see nothin' yet. When most money gets into a few hands (bankers, Wall Street, big CEOs) the crumbs for the beggars will not sustain. Desperation will bring a disastrous revolt and chaos to America. The 1930s will seem heavenly if compared.

Understanding a law of business: Money to manufacture is of no value if the consumer has no money to buy. Money must move to be of service.

Mitt Romney is a bully.
