    The Republican Party needs to act like Conservatives and quit kissing the opposition partys rear!

    Are you RINO's listening?

    Nope. You're wrong. Democrats didn't force banks to give loans to those that couldn't repay the loans.

    The Conservative Origins of the Sub-Prime Mortgage Crisis

    Everything you ever wanted to know about the mortgage meltdown but were afraid to ask.



    It All Started with Deregulation


    There was a time, not too long ago, when Washington did regulate banks. The Depression triggered the creation of government bank regulations and agencies, such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Home Loan Bank System, Homeowners Loan Corporation, Fannie Mae, and the Federal Housing Administration, to protect consumers and expand homeownership. After World War II, until the late 1970s, the system work. The savings-and-loan industry was highly regulated by the federal government, with a mission to take people's deposits and then provide loans for the sole purpose of helping people buy homes to live in. Washington insured those loans through the FDIC, provided mortgage discounts through FHA and the Veterans Administration, created a secondary mortgage market to guarantee a steady flow of capital, and required S&Ls to make predictable 30-year fixed loans. The result was a steady increase in homeownership and few foreclosures.

    In the 1970s, when community groups discovered that lenders and the FHA were engaged in systematic racial discrimination against minority consumers and neighborhoods -- a practice called "redlining" -- they mobilized and got Congress, led by Wisconsin Senator William Proxmire, to adopt the Community Reinvestment Act and the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, which together have significantly reduced racial disparities in lending.

    But by the early 1980s, the lending industry used its political clout to push back against government regulation. In 1980, Congress adopted the Depository Institutions Deregulatory and Monetary Control Act, which eliminated interest-rate caps and made sub-prime lending more feasible for lenders. The S&Ls balked at constraints on their ability to compete with conventional banks engaged in commercial lending. They got Congress -- Democrats and Republicans alike -- to change the rules, allowing S&Ls to begin a decade-long orgy of real estate speculation, mismanagement, and fraud. The poster child for this era was Charles Keating, who used his political connections and donations to turn a small Arizona S&L into a major real estate speculator, snaring five Senators (the so-called "Keating Five," including John McCain) into his web of corruption.

    Its pretty clear from 100% of your posts to-date that you are on this forum for the sole purpose of besmirching Republicans and hailing Socialism in General...

    We got your number buddy...

    On this specific gaffe Nice try...

    "Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it." - Edmund Burke

    Deregulation my fricking eye...

    McCain was absolved of any wrong doing in your so called attempt at besmirching him with the Keating Five dinosaur which buried 4 Democratic Senators and absolved one Republican whom was falsely accused...

    I have no love for John McCain but the Keating-Five is not a legitimate criticism...

    Any more then the blame W-Bush Derangement Syndrome you Obama-Bots seem to keep trying to muddy the waters with...

    IT was Democrats Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman whom created the unconstitutional Socialist Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac to begin with...

    IT was Democratic President Lyndon Johnson whom made Fannie Mae a Privately held entity wholly backed by the United States Treasury...
    (Our Tax Dollars)

    IT was Democratic President Jimmy Carter whom forced Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac to increase their sub-prime mortgage portfolio to greater then 50%

    IT was Democratic President Bill Clinton whom under pressure from Acorn & their Attorney of Record Barack Hussein Obama Jr. forced Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac once again to increase their sub-prime mortgage portfolio to better then 75%...

    IT was the 2006 Democratic Majority in Congress that once again propped up Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac...

    IT was Republican John McCain whom warned us in 2006 of imminent failure of fannie mae, freddie mac and the banks in general (a matter of congressional record) while Democrat Barney Franks told us we have nothing to worry about...

    IT was Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi whom stated in 2006 "This Will Be The Most Ethical Congress In U.S. History"...

    A short time-later Democrat House Representative William Jefferson was caught on tape taking a 75k bribe from an undercover FBI agent...

    A short-time later the same William Jefferson was appointed to a Department of Homeland Security post by Democrat Nancy Pelosi...
    And we now know that Democrat William Jefferson was convicted of taking bribes and corruption...

    We can blame the RINO Republicans for plenty but the sub-prime mortgage calamity is primarily owned by Democrats...

    IT ALL STARTED WITH STINKING DEMOCRATS ...

    Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to
    penetrate existing Institutions, Universities, Public Schools, Churches, Unions,
    and Political Parties.

    Alinsky's star student was a young high school student Hillary Rodham.

    Barack Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method, and in
    1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, for an
    Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project, and Now our
    Nation.

    How many more are there and are there any True Democrats left?
