I get it. But what I am saying is the crash will not be because we can't live without the american consumer as you started off claiming, it will be
because our monetary system crashes due to excess debt. And contrived made up debt designed to rob us at that.
Sure, if you want to talk post meltdown, the US people are blessed with a big country and natural resources. So is Brazil. So is Russia. So is much of
Africa. So is Australia. So is Scandinavia. So is Argentina. Etc. Everyone will feel it and most countries will have the resources to get out of it,
if the monetary system collapses. But it won't collapse because of the US, it will collapse because it was designed too
. And we'll cross that
bridge if we can't find a detour from it. And do realise we'll have trouble crossing it, because these crashes are designed to end up with fascist
governments and police states to repress the people and collect on the fabricated debt, so the elite gain more resource and power.
Listen, if the US can't sort itself out by itself, it won't be the rest of the world that is going to bail you guys out. After 8 years almost of
bogus war on terror and the rise of a fascist police state, there is little there to salvage. We, at least as peoples, lord knows what our governments
will do, but we as the majority of our peoples in the rest of the globe, will not be worried about the US, because we don't like what the US is doing
on the international stage. And indeed if the US depends on our goodwill to continue to have an economy to be the world's police, then you can kiss
your economy goodbye, because internationally, thanks to Bush and Cº, that goodwill has ran out. How do I know this? International family of
emigrants, nation of emigrants, we have our finger on the pulse of the world.
During Katrina much international aid was offered, and it was all rejected and replaced with the FEMA pre fascist cluster****. It is time for you guys
to realise that if you want to articulate with the other peoples of the world you have to grow out of this indoctrinated "USA USA USA" nonsense and
start behaving like adults. The rest of the world does not need the US. The rest of the world does not want the US to walk all over it. The rest of
the world dosen't care for the dollar. We have our own problems to take care of, our own localised elitist powergrabs.
We do care for your people. And at that level we, the good populations of the world, not our governments but forcing them, would help if we could. But
you have to let us. And part of letting us is realising you are not above us, but equal to us.
The American Volksgeist needs to grow up.
This is not about conflict. This is not about competition. If we are all to have a future we need to accept higher ideals, like cooperation, peace and
respect of truth and indeed of each other. And real, local, participative democracy. If these things become common we can whip the world economy into
shape. It's easy, it's just getting rid of fractional reserve bankind and rethinking the credit system to serve the majority, not the tiny minority
of elite parasites.
No ofense, but there's a bigger underlying problem here than international trade deficits or superavits.
