Just the opposite. Mindsets like yours are dangerous. You think the goverment hasnt seized money from people before? Read before speaking.
Canada doesn’t have power. The United States does. "With great power comes great responsibility"- Uncle Ben Without the United States, Canada would be speaking German. So the fact that the US puts its self in harms way to help others, has benefited the whole world. Including you. So, you may mock the United States, just like a spoiled brat mocks his/her parents, but secretly is appreciative of the food in his/her stomach, and the roof over her/his head. So next time, a simple thank you or job well done will do just fine.
Your Optomistic view on how the people in charge that need us. They dont. Here is your quote in case you forgot what you wrote 5 minutes ago. Wouldnt be suprised.
The middle class have been rewarded for buying lies. The lower classes are too busy trying to scam and climb to pay attention to the lies. Even when a better way, IMHO, is suggested to the lower class, they adamantly defend their right to rise to the top to take advantage of people like they have taken advantage of. It's like the freshmen looking forward to being seniors so they can then dish out the torture and receive some satisfaction. The upper class perpetuates the lies because it benefits them. The lies are perpetuated by an unpaid army of the willing.
Originally posted by jimnuggits they seem to realize that the middle class are 'useful idiots', and will strive to maintain the status quo as long as humanly possible.
For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as "internationalists" and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.
In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests ... got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers ... to control generally the policy of the daily press of the United States

When, through the process of law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of the government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers.
I could list more but it would take all day. Government run programs are poor, it doesn’t want to fix them, and runs them into the ground. What part of your government do you think has so much common sense as to fix all the problems? Have they yet? Nope. They just increased the deficit by 7 trillion dollars. Again, I will repeat myself for the 14th or so time, pick up a book, study history, you will see governments have taken money right out of the pockets of their citizens (right out of their bank accounts). Soviet Union, China, France, Germany, etc. With no regard to what will happen in the future. You don’t obtain a 10 trillion dollar deficit by worrying about the future. Just ask Obama. He wouldn’t care if he ran this country to 20 trillion dollars in debt. Why do you think the DODD FRANK Certificate was put into effect by two of the most liberal democrats on Capitol Hill? This will make trading of gold and silver illegal. They don’t want you to have money out side of banks, so that when the time comes, they will have access. And another point, anytime the Government makes money, prints it off to pay bills. Like our current administration did with the "stimulus package" and many other of their programs. Your money decreases in value, in part, it is the same as them stealing from you whenever they make an extra dollar to pay their bills. Again, I realize I’m not speaking to someone with a tremendous amount of education or experience when it comes to economics, history, and civics, but when you start to study these subjects, you too will become well versed in what policies work, and what policies do not. Next time your respond, please do so with just a little bit of intelligence. Thanks.
