My argument is not that stoping the Subway attack was a failure. It is that over the last 12 years we have spent trillions of dollars and over a
million people have died and we have suspended the US Constitution for all practical purposes. Has the cost been worth the occasional success story? I
would argue that indeed it has been a failure simply because of the Cost alone. It certainly doesn't help that a Global War on Terror has no defined
enemy or way to judge if indeed anything has actually been successful. For those that say there has been no attacks since 9-11... I will say. Boston
Bombings. Anthrax attacks.
We haven't suspended the US Constitution. The Congress voted to allow exceptions for clandestine operation to be expanded. Yes, some of them are quite
intrusive however in a democracy sometimes you must put up with things you disagree with.
You don't have to "put up" with laws that are blatantly against the constitution or bill of rights.
The 2009 stimulus program borrowed 890 billion from the Chinese government at 22% interest. Compounded now to over 1.1 trillion.
That is more than twice what the war on terror has cost. The stimulus program accomplished nothing, even the president said it didn't work.
Why aren't you up in arms about that.
I bet he is as I am as well. We are not here to socialize business. Let them fail and another will rise in their place.
Besides, what would you do-nothing?
I would find out what really happened on 9/11. Then I would invade the homes of every single person responsible. Then I would bring all the troops
home and re-establish relations with Russia in an attempt to finally build a supertrain that would connect our two countries via the Bering Strait.
That alone would bring a major boost to the economies of Russia, Canada, and America. I would suggest it run from Moscow to Los Angeles.
I would mandate all utility companies to pay the equal rate they charge their customers rather than the curtains of fees they currently hide behind.
Citizens deserve to be compensated for their equal share using net metering.
I would reduce the size of the US Army, and US Air Force, and US Marines by 50% while increasing funding into space based and unmanned projects.
I would create a flat tax that eliminates loopholes for the most wealthy while at the same time requiring a zero tax on clothing and food which offers
relief to the most impoverished people.
I would legalize marijuana and tax the crap out of it. I would send a thousand surveillance drones over mexico and bomb the cartels out of existence.
I would end all campaign finance and corporate lobbying. I would make it law that any deficits running for a fiscal year results in congress
receiving a severe wage penalty and zero bonuses. If it continues for more than one year members are automatically relieved of their positions.
The minimum wage and age requirement should be eliminated from law. The central bank would be relieved of its duties and that power given back to
I would eliminate illegal immigrants from receiving welfare checks while at the same time cleaning up the immigration process so it doesn't take years
to legally move to America.
I would instill a policy to turn every vehicle into natural gas driven. Then I wouldn't stop until every homeowner in America has access to free
energy. Zero utility or gas bills.
I would take back the countries water supply from corporate interests that basically steal it from us and sell it back to us.
And many other things..
