It is, and it's high time it happened. Of all the countries complaining about Washington, the one that formed as a country the soonest is still
probably 3 times as old as America is. People seem to forget that we're the babies on the world stage as far as being a country, therefor knowing how
to operate as one, while beating our chest saying we have the most powerful weapons. So the typical American thinks they have a right to be cocky to
the rest of the world.
I don't care who's at fault, Rep or Dem, that's not the point and no one in this thread seems to be talking about it. The point is that we're the
one economy in the world that has the most influence on the rest, yet we can't balance the checkbook. Because of our position, that shortcoming is
going to roll downhill to the rest of the world and have a very negative effect, if it hasn't already. Can anyone here blame the rest of the world
for worrying? I can't. This is one of those things where the outcome of the game is bigger than the players.
China and Brazil have the right idea. Monetarily distance themselves from America. They know they can't tell a stubborn child what to do so they
simply form their own monetary system that is independent from America's. While they're doing that, the average American is crying about a New World
Order and how "draconian" it's going to be. Think what you want, but countries like China and Brazil aren't doing what they are to control us,
they're doing what they do in order to save their own a**. If people here can't see the reality of that, then those people need to start paying
You say America is the greatest and that everyone should bow to us. Well, if they don't that's their loss right? Why worry about them. Keep
collecting your unemployment checks, nutrition assistance funds and/or minimum wage pay while zoning out on your video games, Stallone movies and
shootings in the news while telling yourself you're the sh*t. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is going to slowly be taking over the financial
markets for the sake of...............the rest of the world. People like me are going to be staying on top of what's happening in that regard so we
can easily acclimate ourselves into whatever system acclimates into ours. It's painfully obvious that America doesn't care about anyone but itself
and if they behave that way long enough, they're going to wake up one day and realize they got owned by the rest of the world while they were
sleeping on the job.
You people who keep trying to blame Reps or Dems are doing it to yourselves. ( Not you OP, you're trying to get people to see the big picture but
they're only focusing on what they want)
