Default Re: Obama: Great President or Greatest President?

80% capitalist? I would love to see his definition of capitalist. I would argue the US has not been anywhere close to 80% capitalist since at least 1913 and probably a bit earlier. And even if you want to say that after the creation of the Fed the US was 80+% capitalist, I don't see how you're going to get that far post-FDR and his wonderful stretching of the Great Depression for 10+ years.

And Ogmuk, you know political terms are very different between the US and Europe. European liberals are not really American Democrats.
