Tent Cities: A pretty good Sign that something needs to change

New Jersey tent City

Still have blinders on? I mean when do we say the inflation, lack of living wage jobs, debt, and ridiculous "rich-man" politics has to go? When is enough, enough? Do we have to wait until Jefferson's quote rings true?

The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered. -- Thomas Jefferson
I mean people have even gone as far to say that Jefferson never wrote the above quote, a perfect example of the winners trying to rewrite history. The argument is that since they cannot find a definition of "inflation" that somehow the quote couldn't be true, even though the Roman Empire gave a PERFECT example of what happens with inflation.

When do we say that free-trade has only benefited those that do not deserve to benefit? I am happy for the chinese and all the other beneficiary's of America's manufacturing base, but was it really needed to bring about change? I don't see anyone but the working class giving up their right to the American Dream, for these foolish attempts to unite the world.

Republican's do not even know why other republicans are voting for them Wal-mart republicans are what they are called.

20 years from now our children are going to call us cowards for not returning our country to a constitutional republic.

We need to separate money from politics, and we need to do it before this election.

This may be my last thread here, sorry to not stick around, but I seriously feel like many people just don't care. So, I am going to get off my ass and run for public office, or support the only guy that will eliminate the lackluster wages, jobs, and savings of 75% of the current US population- Ron Paul.

Everything we own in life should not have to be bought with interest. And until people wake up and see a scam for a scam, well just more of the same, and it just gets worse from here.

I have seen some of these "obamavilles" around. What do you expect with the rampant socialism bankrupting the country. If TARP had to be done, it should have went directly to the taxpayers. That would have been approximately 400,000 dollars per taxpayer. I think the economy would be quite stimulated with that.

Oh no, can't give that money to the people, then they wouldn't need loans so rich people can make money for doing nothing.

Banks are only strong because of free trade agreements making credit a NEED vs. a WANT. Free Trade = Stagnant Wages = Bigger need for Credit = Federal reserve "stimulates" the economy to keep the people quiet enough to put the last nail in the coffin. Quality of life didn't degrade much because people could still get loans for the things our parents paid for with cash, until the debt burden gets too big to handle, and no one wants to take the hit. Banks say it is the governments fault for pursuing failed foreign policies, and talk the Government into TARP. Saying pretty much if you wouldn't have shipped America's manufacturing base overseas, we never would have had to print this money in the first place. - so yep. Agreed socialism is not the answer, getting money and politics's separated is my answer.
