Just a thought...

Dayo Olopade, of The New Republic:

I’m no expert, but wonder what on earth would have happened had the Social Security system been privatized, as was advocated by McCain in 2004 and again as recently as March 2008.

With which tools would taxpayers have decided which trusty American investment house (a Lehman, or a Bear Stearns) would get their money? Would any of the gargantuan risk factors associated with such an investment have been transparent back then?
It is amazing that John McCain and Sarah Palin are doing so well - the race seems to have tightened up a lot lately. I wonder when the "swing voters" will wake up.

How bad do things have to get before Americans will reject the Republicans?
