Did I miss something? Or is this another thread to bash the president? It's funny how both Conservatives and Liberals will post ridiculous comments and pictures of the president if he's apart of a rival party. Looks like many of you never matured.



Funny. I don't see anything about any president, repubs or democrats anywhere in the OPs initial post.

To declare this great nation dead means you have no rights. All rights of yours have been stripped and suspended.

Do not dare call the uSA dead. Just because Neo Conservative Facist rule is no longer don't dare declare the nation dead.

Do you not have confidence in your nation? Evidently not! Go listen to another lie.

BTW, The United States Of America will never die or ever be dead. We are way too resiliant, We always and will forever overcome any obstacle that gets thrown before us.

Lesser nations have fallen on less. The fact the US is still here should speak volumes about the forever enduring American spirit which is the eternal flame that keeps this nation chugging along at full steam and power ahead.

The USA WILL NOT EVER DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA!!!

George W. Bush has knowingly deceived the American people on the two overriding policy issues of his presidency � the invasion of Iraq and the deep tax cuts.

Other presidents have lied. Only Bush has repeatedly duped Congress and the public to thwart their exercise of informed consent.

He is the first president to use propaganda as the main weapon in selling his policies. Bush's unprecedented pattern of deception may constitute an impeachable offense.

To date, only the deception in Iraq has brought forth the "I" word. The case for impeachment is materially strengthened, however, when Iraq is combined with Bush's 2001 and 2003 propaganda campaigns to convince the public that tax filers with lower levels of income benefited more from his tax cuts than the nation's richest families.

Hoodwinking the public that Saddam posed a perilous immediate danger to the United States is Bush's greatest treachery. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman observed: "If that claim was fraudulent, the selling of the war is arguably the worst scandal in American history."

John Dean, counsel to the president during Watergate, wrote in mid-June: "Manipulation or deliberate misuse of national security intelligence data, if proven, could be a 'high crime' under the Constitution's impeachment clause."

Before the U.S. invasion, the strong consensus based on intelligence community information held that there were only negligible Iraqi ties with al-Qaida, no nuclear weapons program of any consequence, and limited chemical and biological weapons programs at most.

Lacking hard facts, as evidenced by his now much-discussed deception in his State of the Union address that Iraq sought to buy uranium in Africa, Bush mixed misinformation, distorted allegations and unsubstantiated rumors to persuade the public of the imminent danger posed by Saddam Hussein.

The experience with the massive tax cuts for families and individuals in both 2001 and 2003 makes patently clear how Bush used the same unscrupulous tactics over time. Moreover, the level of the deception is staggering, as indicated by Bush's 2003 proposal to eliminate taxes on taxable corporate dividends.

Joel Friedman and Robert Greenstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities pointed out: "The group with incomes over $1 million � which consists of about 226,000 tax filers in 2003 � would receive roughly as much in benefits as the 127 million tax filers with income below $140,000. Stated another way, the top 0.2 percent of tax filers would receive nearly as much from the tax cut as the bottom 95 percent of filers combined."

Claiming that the 127 million tax filers with incomes of under $140,000 are the big winners when 226,000 of the richest tax filers benefit nearly as much is surely world-class policy deception.

But is it a high crime that warrants impeachment, as was the case with Watergate?

Republican operatives breaking into the Democratic Party's national committee headquarters and President Nixon's covering it up clearly constituted crimes. Bush's propaganda campaign to hide how much the tax cuts benefited the rich is more likely to be viewed by the public as the stuff of politics in which politicians make inflated claims about the importance of a proposed policy and its likely benefits and ignore potential problems.

In actuality, the president's purposeful duping of the public on the nation's most critical policy issues strikes at the heart of American constitutional democracy when it robs the electorate of informed consent. This fraudulent act makes a mockery of Abraham Lincoln's immortal words in the Gettysburg Address, "that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth."

Deeming presidential deception a high crime under the impeachment clause can open a Pandora's box of problems. Yet, President Bush's actions appear to be a far more serious assault on the Constitution than Watergate. I hold that interpreting Bush's pattern of deception on his most important policy proposals as a high crime against the nation is a necessary step in rescuing American democracy.

So here's what I want to know then...How much time do we have?

Economic collapse, food shortages, violence, etc., when does it all come to a head and we have total collapse?

I'm taking about riots, looting in the streets, complete and total societal breakdown? And who is going to be fighting who? Where will it be safe?

What will be the outcome of all of this? The break up as described by the Russian gentleman? A restructuring? I'd love to hear theories.

Things are obviously getting better under Obama's Administration. We should be thankful Obama is intelligent enough to get the succesful results on economy and freedom he has given to us.

Obama has done what he promised freedom is rising, economy is improving, and we are united under Obama our commander in chief.

NO, this country is NOT dead!! The day this country dies is the day that there are no more patriots in this country. I know there are. What we need to do is unite under a common banner and fight the corruption head on. As we start to do this, people will wake up and we will only gain supporters and patriots. It will not take very long for the government to show their true face! Perhaps it's time to bring back the Gadsden flag!! We need to unite NOW!

You've given a pretty good counter argument to my opinion. However, my opinion is related more to USA pressure to give up land.

Here are some "acts of God" which "coincidentally" align with USA pressure on Israel. This only goes to 2005 so there are probably more correlations to disasters since then.

LA earthquake Jan 17,1994. $24 billion in damages, 57 killed
Jan 17, Israel decides to talk about withdrawal from Golan Heights. Direct result of Oslo Accords.

Oklahoma City Bombing kills 168; Chicago Heatwave kills 739;Louisiana flood $1.3 billion in damages. 1995

I don't think the country is dead, but there's a lot of crap going on that needs to be fixed. Strangely, (not to toot my own horn or anything, but...) I just posted a PODcast with a song I wrote that expresses this very idea.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I woke up this morning with tears in my eyes...
Been crying for my country again.
I barely recognize her under the lies...
But I get a glimpse now and then

The big corporations own government.
Money rules this once great land
With profit the first, last and only concern.
The greed, I just can't understand.

--We've let propaganda dictate our thoughts and feed indecision and doubt
--We are all in this chaos together, my friends, but separate, we'll never get out.

A broken man served us so well in the war,
with honor and courage and pride
But homeless and alone, waits for his life to end...
He can't recall now why he tried.

Mass paranoia, hatred and lies...
Anger and selfishness rule
So forget the community! I want what's mine!
And I don't give a damn about you. Who are you?

--Oh, Please tell me I haven't just lost my mind, This nightmare from which I'll awake
--Hating each other is part of the plan ... How much more of this will we take?

There's blood in the ocean, as black as despair..
The animals covered with crude
And chemicals thrive in our water and air..
and genetically modified food.

Oh, Freedom! Sweet Freedom, equality for all
were values this country held high
The polarization that now forms the wall
is enough to make anyone cry. And I cry.

--I remember a time country really came first, When patriot was more than a word
--When United we Stand and Divided we Fall was not just a cliché you heard.

I woke up this morning with tears in my eyes...
Been crying for my country again.
I barely recognize her under the lies...
But I get a glimpse now and then. And I cry.

Obama was elected! That means the USA is dead!

Didn't the USA used to have slavery based upon the race of an indvidual and wage a near-extermination genocidal campaign against Native Americans that finally culminated in the survivors being granted tiny bits of land the U.S. didn't want? And with all of this followed decades of government sanctioned segregation, women having no voting rights, and laws that prevented dissent during times of war?

I take back that last paragraph though. Truly Obama, and liberal-commie-nazi-socialists in general, have killed America. And they didn't even fire a shot. At least not inside the U.S. homeland. The Middle East however is still getting slugs drilled into it by U.S. forces.
