I myself see only one issue dividing us really.
How to make it, how much is taken from us, how the ticks spend it, how much is wasted, the list is endless.
Abortion, though I see it as a right, should not be funded by the government. That is the opinion of many and though some argue the
rightness/wrongness of abortion, few can give a valid argument as to how and why it has become a tertiary contraceptive in America due to government
Gun control means many things to everyone. "center mass" to some and "no guns" to others. Most intelligent people would allow for a background
check but at the same time are adamantly against a national registry (which is what a background check is right now). We face a collapse and it will
be easier to control if "they" know where all the guns are. At the same time during a collapse we will only have ourselves to depend on. Again it
boils down to "money".
We allowed our manufacturing base to be destroyed through "free trade". Some blame the unions for wanting $60 an hour to sweep floors and others
blame the companies for wanting higher profit margins. Regardless, the jobs and factories are gone. So too is the "money".
Our middle class was created and empowered by the above jobs and they too fell by the wayside. With the closing of the factories we assume it means
closing of smelters, refineries, stamping plants, and assembly yards as a given. What we hardly ever take into consideration is the secondary and
tertiary jobs that are made possible due to these workers. Stores, restaurants, hospitals, schools, bars, dry cleaners, again the list is endless.
Tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of jobs lost due to a "handful" of plant closings. A world of strife created for want of
The current political landscape echoes with hate for the "1%". What are they "1%" of? Yes, again it's "money". We have almost come to the point
that we want to eat the rich. Honestly though, who can blame the American public for feeling that way? Clinton was "dead broke" because she
had a few tens on millions in the bank. Romney says "let their parents pay for college like my parents did". The ticks are so out of
touch with the citizens they are not even in another country, it's like they are from another world. All made possible with "money".
I've ranted too long and I doubt I've made much sense
I don't hate money. Far from it. I enjoy the little I'm allowed to have now and then. I
just think most problems are controlled in some form or fashion by those "greenbacks".
