One thing I have noticed about the bailout discussion is that the issues surrounding a socialist-like "Bailout" plan by the fed are so massive and complex that the whole country has turned purple. A mix of red and blue the likes of which have never been seen. The ranks of the great "Culture Wars" of the naughties are breaking and people are listening to different perspectives. Culturally this may be a boon. I stumbled across this documentary "SPLIT" within a Google search for "free speech." Looks to be a mind expanding film.
