You guys better get used to living in a banana republic. I have never seen a country so determined to degrade themselves from a modernized, wealthy first world empire into a corrupt, broken third world country.
The destruction of the American empire is going to be a truly unique chapter in the history books and will serve as a testament to the limitless greed the human species is capable of. At least it will be a good lesson for future generations of more civilized countries so they hopefully don't end up going down the same path.
That is how figures like Hitler and Lenin come to power. The alternative is not good, but at least will rid humanity of some vermin.
Did you really just say you preferred the Holocaust or Stalin's purges to Wall Street's meltdown? -- "The conservative criticism of our age is that liberals have turned from humanity, from the expansion of freedom for the individual, to a cultural bolshevism that can only be expressed in moral trickery and tyranny." - Francis Graham Wilson
Unfortunately the corp. crooks ride to power with those despots... They just get to repress the press as well... Look into who made money in Germany during WWII and Hitler and Stalin lined up right next to the existing Corp institutions... They just took their slice off the top. Nope no hope for the regular person there. THE ONLY HOPE is that we start voting people in who have a clue in mass... LOL lot's of hope there.
