My problem with our 'debt' is that we are constantly bombarded with the idea of going global.
As if that's
a good thing.
Global? We need to be self-sufficient!
We can't even take care of ourselves and we want to spread ourselves thinner?
In the name of what? Democracy?
Our gov't keeps spending obscene amounts of money staying over seas fighting/aiding/etc...
Then they want more money to help prop up the banks...*ehem*...the markets, so they can lend US money.
Wait, I forgot that banks are the only entities that create wealth!
Now, they want more money to create health care and jobs!
Back to going global.
I'm not saying that trading and import/export is a bad thing, when you can do things equally.
We should be producing our own goods to export and we hardly do that, if any at all.
BUT: It is a terrible idea when our Congress adopts a free-trade agreement!
So basically, we import everything, without any sort of tariff, and we don't export anywhere near as much.
But, then the price of goods would go up...
Because we all know that we pay 1/20th the price of what it costs to make things in China.
Great idea, D.C.! (old news, I know)
Does anyone here even know why we don't produce our own goods?
Call it what you want, but I call it greed.
When one man decides that making $100,000 profit isn't enough...
...so he produces the same goods in China, or Mexico so he can make $400,000 profit?
Does anyone else see the problem here? It's been happening for decades now.
Basically, this isn't capitalism it's a dog-eat-dog world.
Screw the people when you can make more money.
I watch these things take place and I get disgusted with people (that support those actions).
I see things for what they're worth and right now everything is worthless.
Call me Negative Nancy or what-have-you.
You can't have all these 'elitists' making windfall profits at our expense.
Then turning around and saying, "Invest in our market, BUY STOCKS!, Global is the way!"
It's a bunch of horse malarkey.
Forget about it.
There's no use even ranting anymore.
They want a global gov't, currency, and nation.
With the steps these people are taking, it will happen. One way or another.
