Marrs claims that the United States has become a nation of zombies, “dumbed down by controversial education programs, drugged out by an ever-growing pharmaceutical industry, and frightened into submission by constant threats of terrorism and economic collapse.
Economically, the globalists want to rule the planet without regard to national borders. Hence the rise of multi-national corporations with fingers in every government pot. That requires socialism, which has taken root in almost every country except the United States. It needs to overtake America as well, which is why “a plan is in play to debase the US economy and impose a socialist system — whether Obama’s Marxist Socialism or Bush’s National Socialism apparently makes no difference to those wealthy or powerful enough to control the central bureaucracy of the state.”
30 years ago, the U.S. national debt was about one trillion dollars. Today, it is almost 17 trillion dollars. 40 years ago, the total amount of debt in the United States was about 2 trillion dollars. Today, it is more than 56 trillion dollars. At the same time that we have been running up all of this debt, our economic infrastructure and our ability to produce wealth has been absolutely gutted. Since 2001, the United States has lost more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities and millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas.
Our share of global GDP declined from 31.8 percent in 2001 to 21.6 percent in 2011. The percentage of Americans that are self-employed is at a record low, and the percentage of Americans that are dependent on the government is at a record high. The U.S. economy is a complete and total mess, and it is time that we faced the truth.
#13 When NAFTA was pushed through Congress in 1993, the United States had a trade surplus with Mexico of 1.6 billion dollars. By 2010, we had a trade deficit with Mexico of 61.6 billion dollars.
#18 At this point, an astounding 53 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year
#38 Today, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in our history.

Printing more money to accomplish something is no big deal. A strong representation of that money is what counts. The reasoning behind my comment is its all relative to what the rest of the world is doing. A country will be left in the dust, so to speak, if a government sticks with old ideals while the rest of the world is moving on. Just my opinion.
