If they used the brains they are supposedly born with, they would stop listening to ridiculous pedagogues and extremely narrowminded media and actually LEARN what the hell is going on in the world."
Turnabout. I hear it's fair play. ;)

Socialism, when done right, is Democratic. It is not the opposite, that would be Dictatorship. Dictatorship is what America was edging (I emphasise "edging" here because I am under no illusions that your country was close to that point) towards under Bush with motions like the Patriot Act and the engineering of a war that in the end seems to have been waged simply to have a war.
What America may be turned away from under Obama is Capitalism as you said. Fortunately, with the financial ruin brought about by the rampant pursuit of Capitalism in recent years that you now suffer through, it's probably just what you need.
Not that I'm saying Obama will be perfect and I'm certainly not suggesting that the Left be instated forever as rulers of America. Balance is key, and after 8 years of pulling hard to the Right, it's time to ease over the other way a bit. Let's just hope it is done gently where it is not necessary to be rough, because a hard Left will be just as bad.
And FYI, the "aristocracy of political pull" describes the power structure of W's regime perfectly.

Jan 12th 2009 9:28AM Well... this is a long story.
When BC came out, I rolled myself up a blood elf paladin. She was a hardnosed bitch who was secretly working to undermine the establishment having been present and unimpressed at Kael'thas' odyssey into Outland.
After more than a year I decided I couldn't keep playing her as Aerei because she was just too uptight and prone to driving everyone away. One paid name change to Beatrix (amazed that one was available) and a completely new RP background (single mother bookwormish exorcist) later and I was pretty happy again.
When Wrath came I resolved myself to level to 80 as quickly as I could (and easily beat the rest of my guild) because I really wanted to tank. Of course, I was kidding myself, because I knew I'd stand aside for the two tanks the guild already had. So, I took a look around my other 70s (most of which had only just reached that point as I'd levelled them over the course of BC) and picked my rogue since A) she was fun and B) she was in the right guild unlike all the others.
But also at that point I'd gotten my second account (an RAF to help my fiancee get more than one high level character) upgraded to Wrath so that I could remake Aerei as a death knight. Until I'd played through the DK starting experience on my original account I had completely shied away from the notion, but the way it played out just seemed to fit her character so amazingly well. Fortunately I hadn't killed her off in character, just "retired" her to work in politics. Having her killed while lending the Argent Dawn a hand in that role, then revived in Acherus worked perfectly.
Most of all, I really missed the character. Even though she was hard to RP with others, her psychology completely fascinated me.
I continued messing around with her even while levelling my rogue. Eventually, after blowing most of my money on said rogue's epic flying training, I realised that what I really wanted to play was Aerei again. I absolutely loved playing Blood spec; her roleplay was refreshed and somehow she'd managed to be more congenial (yet all the more terrifying); and some part of me knew I could get her from 64 to 80 faster than my rogue could get from 74 to 80.
So, now Beatrix has fallen by the wayside in favour of the person she was before I created her... but only for raiding When it comes to RP, Bea is still the closest I have to a main. ;)
