49 million Americans short of food

Almost 50 million Americans - one in seven - are struggling to get enough to eat, according to a US federal survey on "food insecurity".

www.rnw.nl...

www.reuters.com...

2,3 million people incarcerated in usa. USA wins and beat russia, and china ( in number , and in percentage).

usa : 2.3 million, 0.76% of the population. 302 million people.
china : 1,6 million, 0.15% of the population. 1 billion people.
Russia : 890.000 , 0.62% of the population. 142 millions people.
Germany : 0. 09 %

3,5 million people are homeless.

Freedom and prosperity are maybe in jail in a brave new world.

The Purchasing power don't follow the economic growth.
And the unemployement is not a real problem.

So maybe it is time to change the economic system ? There are alternatives system, and currency.

If you want to be free, it is now, not later , no because of obama.

how can there be 2 to 3 billion people in jail in the us? the population of the us is like 300 million, 3 billion would mean half of the entire world is locked up in the us,.,,,

Yes , and you know that "insecurity" have been used by bush, he was maybe the first to use fear that way to become president : in a "free country" : other people used it before him : hitler, in its nationnalist country.

Maybe it has been used in england : but i am not sure. CC Cam have been used for long time in england but i do not know if politicsare using the "insecurity" (the feer of insecurity) to be elected.

But after bush: many other people used it : everywhere in europe.

As you can see the utilisation of the fear in politics is not democratic, and should be banned !

en.wikipedia.org...

In other word : politics don't need to speak about real problems, and real solutions : they just have to catch attention with emotionnal subjects.

( in fact they don't want real solutions : because they defend the statu quo, economical and political statu quo)

Is this a democratic system ?

I advise you Thoreau, gandhi masters.

Uh, so it's Bush's fault America is full of people who break our laws?


Secondly, do you think Russia and China provide accurate numbers? I sure don't.

That sure , if you want to defend the us system : the only solution for you is to critics the number.

But could you just imagine , just one second : these are facts, that show in some way that us system may not be the best system ?

Please understand me : i don't critics democraty, freedom or whatever, and I dislike communist systems.

I don't critics what USA means, and i don't critics us citizens.

I just say that there are a lot more poor people, and the rich are becoming richer.

You have to understand clearly that an economic system is an illusion.

A person with debt is a slave : this was a rule in Rome, it is the same rules here if we follow the common logic.

So if you want to be free, don't follow anything : be free.

If you cannot face the facts, just ignore those numbers, just ignore this post, as most people do about real problems.

So the question is do you want a system with statically less problem , or an even better system : in term of poverty, and freedom.

Got other statistics :

237 members of the U.S. Congress; in other words, 44% of them, are millionaires. ( this is the same in every country : but is it the best politic system ? and is it a democracy ? Could you say no i don't want my money/power to be used this way ?)

www.granma.cu...

What could we say about the psychological point of you of rich people : They will defend the statu quo. ( and their power of course ).

Maybe they will be blind by the statu quo, and they will surely never think , or never accept that problem is not far from us, maybe the problem is "us", is our system.

WHY CAN't we apply the liberalism moto : when it is not profitable, throw it away ! We need 'evolution' !

why ? why , tell me why ?

They apply this moto in economy, and it cause poverty, unemployement .., we need to apply this moto in our politic and economic system.

And before : we need to be more open.

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”

And finally the upper class ( just rich people ) will not understand what the other class of the society may think and may want, in democracy.

This is the problem of representative (democracy) republic.

Do you know direct democracy ?
