What a joke! Who is at fault for our current economic woes is Congress! Starting with the Traitors who allowed the FED to come into existence over Christmas holiday 1913. And the Congress who came back from Christmas vacation in 1914 and didn't repeal the Act. Actually, there probably aren't 50 decent politicians in all of DC, and that's being generous! And that's also the problem. Fifty decent politicians who actually work for the people, who actually will not betray their oath to follow the Constitution just is not enough to pass or repeal legislation. There have been other decent politicians over the years--McFadden comes to mind!
Listen closely to Ron Paul here--he enlightens us all about this current "scam":
There is NO left and right! They only differ on how they want to spend the taxpayer's money!

I have been trying to think objectively about this.
Thinking of the debt crisis in this way is the only way it makes sense.
What do you think?
The U.S govt will not default, I don't care what anyone says. Just look at the people who will benefit if the debt is payed off. If the U.S does default though, that should put to rest the idea that the U.S is some sort of corporate/banker run state and other nonsense like that.
But we don't have to default. They just need to make it look like all this crisis is the Tea Part's fault. Scare everyone away from them.
...According to William Guy Carr, in Pawns In The Game,42 the initial meeting of these ex officio planners took place in Mayer Amschel Bauer’s Goldsmith Shop in Frankfurt in 1773. Bauer, who adopted the name of "Rothschild" or Red Shield, from the red shield which he hung over his door to advertise his business (the red shield today is the official coat of arms of the City of Frankfurt), (See Cover) "was only thirty years of age when he invited twelve other wealthy and influential men to meet him in Frankfurt. His purpose was to convince them that if they agreed to pool their resources they could then finance and control the World Revolutionary Movement and use it as their Manual of Action to win ultimate control of the wealth, natural resources, and manpower of the entire world. This agreement reached, Mayer unfolded his revolutionary plan.... (for the plan see pg 5 Secrets of the Federal Reserve0

...If there is one place on earth where new forms of global governance have been tested since the Second World War, it is in Europe. European integration is the most ambitious supranational governance experience ever undertaken. It is the story of interdependence desired, defined, and organized by the Member States.

The Control of the food supply is now in place with the WTO writing the NEW regulations to bankrupt American farmers. (Yeah I can prove it)
Where do you think the Tea Party fits in all this though?
Is it another arm of the Corporation?
Or a faction of the ordinary man....
I agree with you, but corporations have been writing regulations to crush competition since forever. That doesn't mean that they run the govt though, without their govt granted privileges they wouldn't have any power at all. Maybe it's the govt controlling the corporations?
...Dwayne Orville Andreas (born 4 March 1918) is one of the most prominent political campaign donors in the United States, having contributed millions of dollars to Democratic and Republican candidates alike.

...Then, in spring 2008, prices just as mysteriously fell back to their previous level. Jean Ziegler, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, calls it “a silent mass murder”, entirely due to “man-made actions.” Through the 1990s, Goldman Sachs and others lobbied hard and the regulations [controlling agricultural futures contracts] were abolished. Suddenly, these contracts were turned into “derivatives” that could be bought and sold among traders who had nothing to do with agriculture. A market in “food speculation” was born. The speculators drove the price through the roof....” www.independent.co.uk...
...Today three companies, Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, and Bunge control the world’s grain trade. Chemical giant Monsanto controls three-fifths of seed production. Unsurprisingly, in the last quarter of 2007, even as the world food crisis was breaking, Archer Daniels Midland’s profits jumped 20%, Monsanto 45%, and Cargill 60%. Recent speculation with food commodities has created another dangerous “boom.” After buying up grains and grain futures, traders are hoarding, withholding stocks and further inflating prices....” www.globalissues.org...
Members of Congress
Can you imagine working at the following Company?
It has a little over 500 employees with the following statistics:
•29 have been accused of spousal abuse
•7 have been arrested for fraud
•19 have been accused of writing bad checks
•117 have bankrupted at least two businesses
•3 have been arrested for assault
•71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
•14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
•8 have been arrested for shoplifting
•21 are current defendants in lawsuits
•In 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving
Can you guess which organization this is? Give up?
It's the 535 members of your United States Congress. The same group that perpetually cranks out hundreds upon hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in line.
