Greetings from the Socialist Republic of America

Maybe the Bush administration should consider changing the name of our country.

After all, it could be argued that the Bush people have fundamentally changed the relation between government and business in the United States by taking over the gigantic mortgage guaranteeing operations in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, taking over the nation's biggest insurance company in IAG, and now partially nationalizing the eight biggest banks.

Perhaps we're not the United States of America in the same capitalist sense we used to be.

Personally, I kind of like the Socialist Republic of North America with it's nod toward our Hispanic heritage,

But Socialist Republic of America is shorter.

Maybe we should go with that instead
