you decide on November 6, 2012.
Best explanation of what is happening in America that I have heard!
CAN THE USA SURVIVE GIVEN THE FOLLOWING?
The folks who are getting free stuff, don't like the folks who are paying for the free stuff,
Because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free
Stuff and their own stuff.
The folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop, and the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting!
Now... The people who are forcing the people to pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff, that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff, are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.
So... The people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff, and giving them the free stuff in the first place.
We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff.
Now understand this. All great democracies have committed financial suicidesomewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason?The voters figured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.
Thomas Jefferson said it best: "The democracy (Republic) will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
The United States officially became a Republic in 1776, 235 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff. We have one chance to change that On Nov 6th, 2012. Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it.

"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money". -- Margaret Thatcher
Reagan's own OMB director, David Stockman had this to say: fast forward to the 1 minute 30 second mark.
You post an old video of a politician who has a different view. It does not address the facts. Sadly, many in the "working" upper middle class are looking outside of CA. Government workers will stay because they have a great gig. (Even teachers are well off with their own homes, vacations, health care, great pensions. Before you cry, over half the people I know are teachers.)
The Rich, like DiCaprio and Hollywood Inc are fine.
Those receiving something will stay. (I am not making value judgments here as to whether they deserve it or not, so don't go off topic on me. I am just saying they will stay and others will come.)
My family came here in the Gold Rush. For decades we saw creative, energetic people coming to CA.
Now we see them leaving. About half of my cousins - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd that I know) have left. And they are all "young professionals." (This is all widely reported, if you care to research it.)
If that isn't a problem, I don't know what is, and a reply to the OP "You're retarded," with a old video does not address the issue
So what do you say to talent leaving?
when the truth is, yes their is some lazy people, but, our industrial complex has gone over seas.. leaving no jobs.. The problem is the banking system, not the poor, we need to bring back industry to the US
..it's our trade policy. Banking plays into that, but it's not the root of the problem.
their currency to make their country attractive enough for major corporations, and industry.. If you had watched that documentary I posted you would have seen how it works..
So willy once again, you replied to another post, that you couldn't be bothered to click on the link and watch... They would not be able to play these games if the money was tied to ANYTHING of value, BTW

...The Chinese Yuan isn't necessarily a more attractive currency, corporations just get to pay the workers there 5 cents a day.
By the way, before we used tariffs to offset this. Say a business wants to make tennis shoes in China and sell it in the USA. Just to make the math easier, say it costs 1 dollar of labor to make those shoes in the US, and it costs 10 cents of labor to make them in China, then we would put a 90 cent tariff on imported Chinese shoes, so there's no economic advantage to offshoring jobs there.
We've had central banking for quite some time now, but offshoring jobs didn't become a problem until we started getting rid of our tariffs with free trade.
Banking is a problem (look at what happened to Argentina in the 90's), we now live in an era where capital flight can happen, but that's a separate issue.
Thanks for the documentary, but I've been studying this issue since 1999, and I don't agree with a free market economist like Peter Schiff anyway.
those of you who insist on taking money from those that put in an hours work for an hours pay and give it to those THAT COULD HAVE GOTTEN OFF THEIR FAT ASS and put in an hours work for an hours pay...BUT didn't cause the sob story crowd think it is unfair to ask for all who can contribute, leave for your socialist/communist garden of eden and leave us in the good 'ol USA. bye, bye.
Yep, that's the American Way. Accept the shit we got, wave the flag high, and keep your mouth shut like a good little dog.
...speaking of which, I guess that means that nuguy will now have a giant framed picture of THIS guy in his home that he salutes every morning.
Which country will you be moving to ?
No doubt a country where everyone wears an olive drab hat with a red star on it.
2012 = Drug Free GOP
What's in it for you, what do you get? Do you think your taxes will go down?
You can't spell Romney with out money. You know he uses that line.
why ANYONE still believes in ANY of these liars and crooks is beyond me.. Romney isn't even the lesser of the evils between Obama and Romney, they're equal, and the same..
What Americans should do on voting day, is go protest instead of vote.. and demand better candidates..
ALL OVER THE WORLD people are protesting, even canada is having HUGE protests.. Everyone except Americans.. I don't get it
