Would you answer something for me? So what, if its a little bit of a read. It is relevant!
I need to ask this, I really do. What do you define communism as?
If a state has a problem with extreme poverty and its people decide to put systems in place to combat the problem. E.G. Welfare. If the people elect
to provide public school or police service etc...
Please clarify your position here. The constitution said nothing about this stuff. A true communist state owns everything including the fruits of your
I don’t think America will ever be a communist state. However I do think freedom is an illusion in America. The law is not accountable to the
people, but rather big business.
It has become impossible to distinguish between elected officials and concentrated capital in this country. In a system where special interest can
pull its backing and in effect destroy a candidates re-election chances, is the same as being fired by your boss! If this statement is indeed true
then it means we live in a Fascist state. Those who think they are free but are not are hopelessly enslaved.
Should we support Fascism in America, or should we put it down?
I am in no way anti capitalist, but in my mind to big to fail should mean to big to exist, and those large corporations who basically monopolized the
mom and pop shops out of existence should be reined in. The American dream has been killed by Wal-Mart and the like and we are completely dependent on
China as a result of their activities. I have a friend in China and have visited a number of times. Did you know the Chinese enjoy high quality
products, I mean really high quality. We get the cheapest stuff thet our fellow Americans can pawn off on us! Did you know that the Chinese worker
earns an equivalent wage? He just works 80-90 hours a week to do so. There are no labor unions in China after all.
I think Fascism is far worse than any elected social programs we may have in the future. I personally feel that it is my duty to stand with any who
would seek to remove the money from politics, and in turn end the corruption in our government.
Mussolini once said "Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power. ".
Did you know that Obama largest campaign contributors are the same companies who engineered this mess we are in? Did you know they still back him, but
are throwing much more at Romney this go around? Do you think another plastic man will really fix anything?
Adolf Hitler once said.
The art of leadership... consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up
that attention. To achieve success we must have the ability to make different opponents appear as if they belonged to one category.
Is this not exactly what is going on here? From the start I have heard the OWS message and they have only one demand. If you wish to see here is a
Yeah its left, but its also right and in the middle! Scott Olsen had already offered his life to his country, and was just doing what all good
Americans should be doing! He did not derseve to get shot in the face reagardless of how leftist he may have seemed!
Wake up ok, the left and right dogma are just being used to further manipulate you! One plastic man is not better than another! These are your country
men who demand the same reform as you!
What do we all have in common here? We want our damn country back!
United we stand, divided we fall!
Also I want to know if you are aware of this.
The Nov 12, 1999 repeal of provisions of the Glass–Steagall Act of 1933 by the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act effectively removed the separation that
previously existed between investment banking which issued securities and commercial banks which accepted deposits. The deregulation also removed
conflict of interest prohibitions between investment bankers serving as officers of commercial banks. This repeal directly contributed to the severity
of the Financial crisis of 2007–2011 by allowing Wall Street investment banking firms to gamble with their depositors' money that was held in
This is all that allowed the housing mess to take place.
Also Did you know that due to the deregulation Bank Of America has been allowed to move 53 trillion “Yes I said trillion” In derivatives to its
FDIC incurred depository branch. This move forces American taxpayers to backstop its $53 trillion derivative book. I don’t think the FDIC could
actually swing this bailout, but it is what it is.
