Obama Declares Martial Law on Capitalism By Executive Order

Based on this new executive order to be signed by President Obama tomorrow he will declare martial law on the American financial industry by over regulating it to the point of stagnation. This is what he means by eliminating the business cycles in capitalism. That is socialism plain and simple. This one order would destroy American Capitalism as we know it. Beware America and beware other countries that trade with America, for this could be the end as we know it.
