Great question, I know how the corruption is bad pretty much everywhere in the world, greed, elitism and I remember feeling emotional when Obama won
the election and taught that, maybe, now it will change...
Well, it didn't. I guess he didn't want to get killed.
I like Ron Paul because, from my "limited" and biased ATS sources, he does have a long time of speaking truly and seems less inflicted with
corruption. To tell the truth, I never heard of him before about 2 years ago. I've been interested in American politics since Clinton but 911 really
openly showed that, it is that bad.
The US and Canada always have been good business partners and yes, a good US economy is good for us, but I don't really care about that first hand. I
would like to see all planetary leaders be there for the good of everyone instead of mainly the elites.
I was thinking today how it would be great if I could just put a sign in front of my house that says I'm selling furniture from the wood and materials
I buy. I'm already paying taxes for the "raw" material I'm buying, why should I have to pay to start my company name, to get permits, to get a new
bank account, etc. etc.
I can't even build myself a little shack on my own land without getting a damn permit, am I REALLY the owner of this land...which I pay taxes too.
This is not freedom, we are infested with parasites.
Although I am mostly leftist, I believe there are too many government regulations and control that makes the common people trapped while elites change
the laws to facilitate them at our expense.
In a world where our leaders would sacrifice every second of their elected years for the people and not themselves, I would prefer government
management for education, health and energy.
I'm totally drifting here but Ron, he wants to close the Fed and that's enough for me because the last one that tried, was the best US president in
history. I just hope we don't any another dead man before things change.
