    Hey it doesn't matter to them, the Fed can just print more money. What the hell do they care? Most of them are only concerned with the "crazy checks" and the "whose your babies daddy checks." They don't care that the money really isn't there. Hell quit putting so much pressure on these poor people. They are victims of society, a "working society."

    I was heart-broken with the election results. The results reminded me of a classic book I read just two years ago: Democracy in America by Alexis De Tocqueville. The author is a young Frenchman sent here by the French government to observe and write about America around 1830, just 50 years or so after we'd won our independence. By that time, we’d already made a pretty big splash on the world’s stage. He wrote about the attributes of our country which he concluded would catapult us to superpower status, including the physical ones (location on the globe, natural resources, etc), but also how our government is organized (for example, our divided sovereignty rather than a highly-centralized government as in a monarchy). But he also wrote about the ways in which a democracy brings about its own demise. In a democracy with universal suffrage, people tend to vote for politicians who will “give” them things. These things have a cost. Eventually, in the process of fulfilling their promises, the politicians drain the public coffers. The people then vote to raise taxes from which they themselves are exempt. Sound familiar? Over many years, the standard of living decreases for everyone, the nation loses power and influence, and eventually ceases to exist as a superpower, or worse, cease...

He states that one has only to look to civilizations of antiquity to see this played out over and over again. My heart is broken with the realization that we are likely on that downward trajectory and that as a nation we no longer have the political will to turn the ship around.

    Do you really think that resonates with them? They just won't understand until it impacts their wallet. It won't impact their wallet until they've sucked ours dry.

    yes, this news is not so bad for obomma supporters..

    they are not picking up the bill to pay for this, we the 53 % are..

    and guess what , 53 % had your chance to vote this guy out of office, you get what you vote for , you get what you get when you stay home and not vote.

    only 120 million voters , of which obomma got 54 % of the vote,

    that means , 72 % of Americans did NOT vote for obomma..

    we reap what we sow, and we got a liberal spending our money ,,

    Well, if Obama can bring about economic chaos, he can suspend the Constitution and declare himself dictator for life.
