We actually WANT America to lead the world, but in a very responsable way witout things like the PNAC agenda and insanity!
I have reluctantly led people off and on through life, and I can assure you that I NEVER let those led determine how I should lead. If they have a
better plan, then THEY need to lead. If not, then let me lead as I see fit. If some one wants me to lead, and then TELLS me how to do it, how they
want to be led, in short order they will be searching for another leader.
That concept is the same for countries as it is for individuals. If someone else has a better idea, then they don't need the US to lead, they should
step up and take the lead themselves.
Personally, I'm hoping the US gets out of the world leadership business soon. We have other things that need to be attended to.
We have trusted you enough to let you administer our world reserve currency, (which by the way made it possible for you of propping up your way of
living with the Petro-Dollar system and hegemony, and look what happened to that?
Beats me what happened to it. My suggestion is for you all to administer your own money. God knows the US monetary system is messed up, what with
allowing a private company to churn out paper money backed by pretty much nothing.
The world economy is screwed because of Wall Streets greed!
Nope. The world economy is screwed up because the trusted known crooks to guard the henhouse, i.e. Wall Street, instead of looking after their own
The US economy is screwed up because too many folks trusted the government NOT to do boneheaded thing with our money, like uh... give it to Wall
Street. We KNOW Wall Street is run by crooks. I can't for the life of me understand why Washington gave them MORE money to line their pockets with.
MY money. Maybe DC didn't get the memo about Wall Street being run by crooks?
And now you guys have invented a new beautiful scheme of speculating in Life Insurances - when will the insanity end?
All insurance is a scam, not just life insurance, but health insurance too. I wasn't aware that Americans invented it, though. I reckon I learn
something every day.
Now our government wants to take the insurance racket over, too, with their "single payer" or "public option" or whatever that mess is they're
trying to ram down our throats, and trying to pass off as "health care". I'd be OK with that, except that the government here intends to FORCE the
citizenry to participate, whether they like it or not. I can see that not working out to well for some of us.
I have no insurance, and don't want any. It's nothing more than a racket to part fools from their money. I carried insurance for years, and
couldn't use it when I needed it. It's a racket, and they got enough money out of me for nothing. Now the government steps in, and is saying I HAVE
to have insurance, under penalty of law? Nope. Come and get me. I ain't paying a DAMN thing into it.
You and people like Dooper nead to get into the politics, that's for sure!
We need a new start in some way!
Like I wrote in another thread! O'boy I miss the DD "IKE" Eisenhower days!
Me and Dooper go into politics? And to think someone said Europeans have a strange sense of humor! I don't find that strange at all, it's PERFECTLY
No, I pretty sure NO ONE want us to go into politics. Least of all me!
I think I'm too honest to make a good politician anyhow...
