she did make some poor remarks but mostly what I feel happened, is that she was just overwhelmed by that presenter constantly bluffing her out... hek on a phone talking to some shark like that even I would get nervous. now for sure she is not the brightest light out there but I could quite clrealy understand what she was TRYING to say and I must agree with her... How many people could be sustained by the us? uhmmm.... wasn't it something like every person alive today could get a pretty massive piece of land if they would just divide Texas equally? I'd say American soil can sustain a hell of alot of people... she just didn't have her answers readily available but her mentioning borders being thrown out.. I see 1 reason and 1 reason ONLY to not do that.. it'd be hella dificult to get taxpayers money if the government doesn't have an eagles eye on who's doing what... without borders that very thing would prove impossible since anyone can go work and take the earned money out of sight from TPTB. that presenter never gave the woman a fair chance to proof her point....
Its all about the money.... I saw some graph presented here on ATS wich showed that (to be safe I'll scale it down since I thought it was even higher) the top 20% of the people in america own MORE money then the bottom 80%... her mentioning people making to much money can only mean this... and I'd have to agree with that... never before have we had such an overwhelming amount of money transfered from the lower- and middle-class TO the upper-class as we have seen in the last couple of years... the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer

The Whig Party was a political party of the United States during the era of Jacksonian democracy. Considered integral to the Second Party System and operating from 1833 to 1856, the party was formed in opposition to the policies of President Andrew Jackson and the Democratic Party. In particular, the Whigs supported the supremacy of Congress over the executive branch and favored a program of modernization and economic protectionism. This name was chosen to echo the American Whigs of 1776, who fought for independence, and because "Whig" was then a widely recognized label of choice for people who saw themselves as opposingautocratic rule.
