The USA is not really a county it is a corporation.

A business venture
As a business venture it serves ONLY the elite barons of finance and wealth who have ordained AUSTERITY for the world.

It started in Europe and will now come to the USA is spades with the election of the AUSTERITY puppets of all time: the Republican Party…

www.abovetopsecret.com...

There is a current thread here discussing the decline of America…

What is happening is not necessarily the decline of America but the reality of its evolution as a business enterprise not a real country.

The corporations are in our blood. Look at the names of all the sports stadiums:

Prudential Center, Staples Center, etc…all over the countries landscape.

Indeed no longer peddling artificial notions of “freedom” but pure naked commercialism.

This country is doomed to A FATAL FALL because of this over concentration on wealth and commercialism

It’s gotten so bad that the middle class are dwindling and evolving into a modern form of serfdom and debt slavery all brought about by the greed of the wealthy and the catering to them by NASCAR politicians.

The 1 percent are the new Dukes, Earls, Princes and Kings and Queens and the rest of us out their slaves.
Robert Reich: The 1 percent is gutting America’s middle class

www.salon.com...



The richest Americans hold more of the nation’s wealth than they have in almost a century. What do they spend it on? As you might expect, personal jets, giant yachts, works of art, and luxury penthouses. And also on politics. In fact, their political spending has been growing faster than their spending on anything else. It’s been growing even faster than their wealth.




According to new research by Emmanuel Saez of the University of California at Berkeley and Gabriel Zucman of the London School of Economics, the richest one-hundredth of one percent of Americans now hold over 11 percent of the nation’s total wealth. That’s a higher share than the top .01 percent held in 1929, before the Great Crash.




We’re talking about 16,000 people, each worth at least $110 million. One way to get your mind around this is to compare their wealth to that of the average family. In 1978, the typical wealth holder in the top .01 percent was 220 times richer than the average American. By 2012, he or she was 1,120 times richer. It’s hard to spend this kind of money.The uber rich are lining up for the new Aerion AS2 private jet, priced at $100 million, that seats eleven and includes a deluxe dining room and shower facilities, and will be able to cross the Atlantic in just four hours. And for duplexes high in the air. The one atop Manhattan’s newest “needle” tower, the 90-story One57, just went for $90 million.




Why should we care? Because this explosion of wealth at the top has been accompanied by an erosion of the wealth of the middle class and the poor. In the mid-1980s, the bottom 90 percent of Americans together held 36 percent of the nation’s wealth. Now, they hold less than 23 percent. Despite larger pensions and homes, the debts of the bottom 90 percent – mortgage, consumer credit, and student loan – have grown even faster.




Some might think the bottom 90 percent should pull in their belts and stop living beyond their means. After all, capitalism is a tough sport. If those at the top are winning big while the bottom 90 percent is losing, too bad. That’s the way the game is played. But the top .01 percent have also been investing their money in politics. And these investments have been changing the game. In the 2012 election cycle (the last for which we have good data) donations from the top .01 accounted for over 40 percent of all campaign contributions, according to a study by Professors Adam Bonica, Nolan McCarty, Keith Poole, and Howard Rosenthal.

And yet everyday we get up, go to work, and come home. We spend our paychecks every week and earn another when that is gone. You can suggest an alternative?

Aside from returning to our tribal hunter/gatherer lifestyles of the past I think we will simply continue to cash our check each Friday and load the kids up for a trip to Wal-mart. Will you do otherwise?

It's called balance

I wouldn’t be fooled by the mundane…it’s always a lull before the storm.

I make my money each week and then I spend it. When I spend mine someone else makes theirs .
Thus, the cycle continues. We decry the process yet perpetuate it.

I wouldn't worry too much about the storm, when it gets rolling good the rich will be pulled off their thrones and drug through the streets by their necks. We outnumber them a million to one!

Do you know what that is?

rhetorical question.

Its commerce.

If one becomes obsessed with ANYTHING to the exclusion of other things that round out life
It causes an IMBALANCE
Imbalance such may either illustrate a diseased state or a pre-diseased state

What if your son played video games all day?

That’s why America is a corporation disguised as a country.

Its over indulgent in commerce to the exclusion of a healthy balanced way of life

Corporations even know this so do other things: picnics, parties

But America is drunk with commerce so much that its upper class have become money addicts

btw you're only a spec of sand in a sand dune
you may be blinded by the sand

So you don't spend money?

You don't partake of the rampant commercialism that is the teat from which we all suckle?

Earning, or spending, in excess is in our competitive nature. That's why we're the supreme predator on this planet. But since we don't have to go out and kill for our meat each day and we can store tomorrows food in the bank we transfer that struggle to survive to our business practices. Caveman 101.

Do we hunt all day and night like an animal?

Which distinguishes human from animal is that we don’t, like a dog, have our noses in the dirt ALL the time.

But of course some of us do...that's due to an imbalance

We have an anima nature but that’s only one of them.

We have a broadened nature that includes other archetypes other than the anima

So do animals actually, it’s just that theirs is not as developed as humans

Sorry, I just believe that we are no different than we were 10,000 years ago. Same motivations, different applications.

Our biological programing to survive/thrive/flourish is our edge over the rest of the animals on this planet. Now, with day to day survival less of a concern, we fill our time with buying and selling. Still leveraging our way to the top. I don't have to poke you with a stick to survive, I hunt via prime time commercials.

There's lots of movements you can join to stop being a mindless consumer and start being a proactive member of the human race. I attached myself to the Zeitgeist Movement and Wolf PAC so far. There are tons of options out there for activism.

"Zeitgeist : Moving Forward" (available on Netflix) is a great movie to get a handle on the reality we live in.

"Surviving Progress" (also on Netflix) is also great and addresses the issue of our brains being outpaced by our collective knowledge.

I recently watched "Thrive" (on YouTube)based on it being mentioned in another thread. That was also an amazing summary of our situation.

Just as an example, if you don't know what fractional reserve banking is you need to get educated.

You can continue to be a mindless consumer if you want but our nation and the world is where it is primarily due to our own apathy. So if you are happy with you and your children and your children's children being debt slaves in a totalitarian state, do nothing. If you're not OK with that, get active.

Doing nothing earns you nothing. It's about time the generations alive today in America do their duty as Americans. Or if that's too hard just do nothing and enjoy watching things crumble knowing it's your fault for being the "good German".

How does the top wealthy putting most of their money towards politicians help the country?
It is a revolving door where the only ones that benefit are the wealthy and politicians serving each other.

Corporations are known to behave like psychopaths according to psychologists.

I heard that America was literally a corporation and not a country. It has to do with the District of Columbia being created as a separate zone to govern from in the late 1800's, here is one source that talks about it - I heard about it from a fellow researcher first.

The United States of America is a Corporation

I hate to be a heretic but I didn't work this hard for this long not to be a mindless consumer. So mindless in fact that when
I die, I'm going to leave a mountain of debt that will make the VISAlites recoil in horror. The ultimate bankruptcy....



I know...I know....but I look at money as just 1s and 0s in some cosmic cyber data base. It's really just digitized exchange for sweat and blood.
In the near future, currency will not only be illegal but an act of terrorism to have any stashed away. All your gold and silver will be confiscated to support the war effort. Corporate sponsored wars for resources, energy, and to keep the populations in check.

It's a brave new world....

If America is NOT a country but a corporation... However Mitt Romney says that corporations are people. Does this mean I can deduct the cost of toilet paper from my income taxes?

In other words, if income is 100.00 per month, cost of living is 98.00 per month, tax should only be on the 2.00 per month gain.

Toilet paper is one cost of doing business. If corporations are people and I am a person then I can be a corporation that deducts all cost of living expenses. Very simple I think.

Yes it is simple to become an LLC and deduct a hell of a lot.

And yes toilet paper should be deduct able if a clean orifice is used in the production of goods and services pertinent to your corporate model.

This appears to be the pinnacle of a cycle
that has rotated throughout history.
This "Economic Imbalance" is not germinating forth
from The United States solely, but is systemic Worldwide.

When such an imbalance reaches critical mass,
the resulting consequences are dire.

A Ratio of 6.4 +/- Billion to 16,000 +/- What Odds would You wager?

The Clock is Ticking. It is only a matter of time and pressure.

Though I would disagree with you that America is only a Corporation,
I would agree that The World is ruled by corporations currently.
At least as far a Geopolitical Economics are concerned.
However, I would insist that All life on Earth is not only subject to,
but At The Mercy as well, of a Power far greater than Mankind can perceive.

This ideology helps me as an individual overcome the hubris and arrogance
that is so embedded in current sociology today.

Imperfections noted.
Lets not just point out the weaknesses,
but create solutions to the problems that face US ALL.
May The lords blessings be upon you and yours, and
May God Bless The United States of America
