An Empire can only be successful if it can bring in wealth from its far flung states to fund itsself.
It has to keep its citizens happy so they don't want to revolt or rule them with an iron fist so that they can't revolt, Both options require huge
amounts of funding. The Romans and British were quite good at this, as were many others throughout history. This is evident from the technological,
agricultural, cultural & socialogical advances that were spread around the globe by all of the GREAT Empires.
In light of this, ask yourself this question...
How has the USA Empire contributed anything of real value to the other countries of the world? and more importantly, what have they done to sustain
or even increase their income? For me, one word will suffice..... Nothing.
Global Military bases do not swell the USA's National coffers with gold, they drain them. The NASA program.... drains them, their ideology of
spreading global democracy through war.... drains them.
We now look at a US company called AIG which the government MUST prop up. They have already given 15% of the "stimulus package value" to this
company and they are still in # street and will need a lot more. They will continue to prop up this company with USA Tax payers money, cos if they
don't ... global recession will soon become global depression = Bankruptcy and world banks will collapse.
All of the global developed countries are now pumping hundreds of billions of dollars into their economies.... but where does this money come from ?
can somebody tell me...printing more bills will not answer their prayers. On such a scale, it will only make their nightmares come true. but hey, as
long as they seem to be doing the right thing in the short term, these dispicable governments will secure their re-election so that they can continue
to enjoy all the frills and bask in the political limelight.
I am English but my heart is in pain for the Founding Fathers and their dreams, they had such dreams, but unfortunately were unable to chose their
GOD BLESS AMERICA.
