In my opinion, it's too late to fix this mess. It would be best to just let it collapse, clear away the detritus and start over.

Yes, here in the United States of America ( or 'Murrica for some of you folks) we Democratically elect our leaders. If they do poorly we vote them out of office and replace them with someone better.
You know that pesky way of governing called Democracy.
Yes it may seem at time that no matter who you put there they still fall under the spell of Corporations.
Well not all of them. Representatives like Ron Paul, Paul Kuchinich and others don't toe the company line.
So it's not impossible.
Moreover I don't appreciate being called a retard.

It will not be fun to have no electricity, food, water because some people suddenly realized that they are getting screwed.

It's The slow decent...
Everyone wonders why the global markets have not crashed yet? because everyone would be out there right now with their shotguns and pitch-forks...Blood would be on the streets.
They slowly take bits away...
First they take your job, give you a year or so of unemployment benefits so you can lick your wounds and come to terms and deal with it.
They start to squeeze...
To keep up with payments people start to slowly sell off all non essentials: Everything in the house they don't need.
They discover your weakness...
Foreclose your home, giving you several months before they finally kick you out..again more time to lick your wounds and slowly get over it!
They give you little pieces of hope here and there of job recovery through MSM and how markets are slowly stabilizing and the worse is behind us...I think it's Just to keep up the moral.
It's a slow grind on the way down...they know people don't like sudden up-heaval...they stretch it out as long as they can...Time heals right? people quickly forget!
They are trying to slowly force people to adapt to the future...
The future IMHO sucks...it just doesnt look very good guys...come on.
Anyone thinking the world is great and things are fine...needs a bitch slap!
Prepare for the worst...atleast your prepared for an EQ, volcano, oil-leak...And whatever else humanity throws our way.
That's it. It's not difficult to understand. I know you all love your internal political wrangling over there in the US (it's actually quite funny to watch from the outside) but please try and see this for what it is.
