Now capitalism is control by the elites that had taken over our system of government and our nation.

When it comes to the way the Canadian economy works, a strong dollar really doesnt suit the word "strong".
If our currency is worth alot, our economy suffers... we don't want our currency to surpass the US currency... we are a supplier, not a buyer.
It's not really the Canadian dollar thats doing well, it's the US dollar thats performing poorly.
If it were the CDN that was climbing, then I wouldn't be worried about our economy... but the USD collapsing means we just lost a HUGE client.

The only way to reel in Americas rampant nationalism and military power is through economic warfare, buying out Americas stocks, weakening its dollar and making it unable to wage war.
With the flick of the pen they create whatever cash is needed, and be sure they'll be more than happy to create them for war.

... American companies are been liquidate to the point that is nothing left.
We are living in borrowed money, we are inundating with goods that we can no even afford, but we get into more debt on credit cards so we can have them.
Venture capital can always be found ...especially for a 'noble' course like war.
As long as someone will buy the bonds, printing more money is not a problem.
I wouldn't be surprised that in an upcoming war with China, America could find the money with Chinese bankers. You get it ..eh?
* the only resource the U.S. has left is It's Nuclear Arsenal,
the ability to devestate natinos & regions with a 'shock & Awe' campaign.
i think the nations of the world are re-thinking any attachments....
economically & politically with the USA...
as the dollar drops so will our stature and status and leadership role...
we're still relying on political/military 'force' to enact our brand of Pax Americana ,
on a world drifting away from American hedgeonomy
Just to think that our government debt is on 9.0 trillions is enough to make people scream.
