14 million houses empty in U.S.

As of the first quarter of 2013, there are just over 133 million housing units in America and 10.7 percent of them — more than 14. 2 million — are vacant all year round for some reason or another, according to the Census Bureau.

Meanwhile, 3.5 million people in the U.S. are homeless.

Any politicians propping up housing prices should be hung in the public square as the homeless throw feces at their faces. How screwed up is our economic system when over 1% of Americans are homeless and there are more than enough houses for everyone?

They are *owned* by people and enterprises who should expect 100x their investments. This is the glory of Free enterprise and the promise of America. Why do you hate Freedom?

Could there be an alternative to the hanging of politicians?

Why do they all hate Freedom ? What is it that works about vulture capitalism that this riff-raff can't seem to understand? They should read the classics- like about how the Communists (the1%) take everything. So what if Lloyd Blankfein has 20 houses!

The most inconvenient truth is the group that claims to represent you is often likely to work contrary to your best interest. Democrats and republicans are masters of this facade.
