And if one of the highest state taxes were to be say...13% you'd have 48% of your income stolen from you before ever receiving it. That would be rather pleasant.

What? The debt has exponentially increased. The dollar has already failed. And yes, creating ghost money (They no longer print it, just add 0s onto bank accounts) it devalues every existing dollar and has interest attached.

Check out monetarism and you'll see why printing/creating currency doesn't always equal inflation (particularly relevant to the US at this time). Inflation is in a very comfortable zone and has been for years. The amount of spending should stay at roughly the same level for the moment until the recovery is sustainable. Things are still fickle right now, but there are signs of improvement (unemployment figures are foremost among such indicators). Any serious contraction in fiscal policy will do more harm than good right now. Having said that, it will pose a problem in the medium term if things don't change. Debt is only bad when the borrower has no capacity to pay. The US has such a capacity and it will expand in the future as the economy grows in tandem.[/quote] Our interest on debt alone will not be sustainable by 2025.

Someone's got to keep the machines running, the doctor has to feed his family and medical supplies aren't made from good thoughts and fairy dust.

The thing you just don't realize is that it's not some group of rich doctors/teachers/movie stars that are holding you down and making you pay for things, it's the fact that there are only a limited number of things in the world, and everyone wants as many as possible. Have a talent that lets you get more things than someone else, congratulations, according to your ideas they're a bad person. Human nature is to never be satisfied for long, the "rich" aren't trying to do you harm, their trying to make their own lives better, and just as you can't imagine any stress from dealing with paparazzi, fame, political decisions, medical student loans, or any of the other things they go through, they can't imagine any of the bills or paying for education that you go through, so as far as they can see what they are wanting is far, just how as you see it what you are wanting is fair.[/quote] Thank god someone pulled him up for that nonsense. The whole article is predicated on the idea that the US Dollar is about to collapse, which it won, and that hyperinflation will ensue, which it won't. There's no evidence pointing to either of those eventualities.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Crystal Clear [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] EcksBawks_live [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Crystal Clear Let's take a look, shall we? A look at what is really wrong with our society; It is not the left, nor is it the right. It is not the communist nor the capitalist, nor is it the fascist nor the libertarian. Those are simply divisional tactics used to separate, and ultimately control us. No, I am here to show you the truth, the truth of what is really wrong here. I am here to remove the veil over your eyes, and show you the dystopian future that has overtaken us. I am here to show you the light. Whether or not you believe what am I to say, is a different matter. Now, let us begin. You. Yes, you. You are a serf. Nothing more, nothing less. You sow the fields of the world, and then you reap them for your masters. In exchange, they let you live a mundane, stressful, and repetitive life. They brainwash you from a young age to accept this lifestyle. Wake up. Go to work. Come home. Sleep. Sound familiar? Public schooling. The first place you are trained. Trained to think as an idiotic hivemind. You will accept orders, believe what you are told, and follow a rigid schedule. Step out of line and you're punished. No need to break the status quo, for uniformity is perfection, right? Right? -blam!- no. As soon as you are ejected from the inefficient beast of public schooling, you will begin your debt slavery via student loan. You're the government's -blam!- now, baby! Now you have begun your serfdom, all for a watered down "education". It's easy to see now, isn't it? We're just cogs in a machine. A gray, evil machine. As if this wasn't bad enough. Our society praises living in the now, sex, materialism, practically the -blam!- feelies. And you better agree with, because if you don't, you're simply degraded and humiliated. Sound familiar? I'd say so. I'd say it's eerily familiar. Prophetically familiar... Ah, yes! Brave New World! That's why it is so familiar, we have a -blam!- Huxleyian society! You see, without going into awful detail, the world is held within the grasps of a beast, a real nasty little beast. The name of that beast is Neo-Feudalism. Honestly, take a look. The rich live in their isolated little castles, they don't mingle with us petty commoners. Their priesthood, the media tells us what we are to believe; If we think otherwise we're simply crazy. Their strong arm, the governments keeps us in line. We rise up and we will be destroyed. All to protect the fantastic lifestyles of a few. And the best part is, is that they have ensured that we ourselves are destroyed! They have ruined the minds of our youth, they have created bogeymen, terrorism is the popular one now, communism was the one of the past. Political enemies are simply lumped into these groups, and laws passed to "protect" us. Countries are ravaged by insane globalism, all to serve the benefits of the rich. There really is no hope. Disinformation creates the intellectual bogeyman of the tinfoil hat conspiracy theorist. Thoughtcrime without a crime of law, but a crime of society. The truth is mocked. And the average man, the average man will think these thoughts, but dismiss them as insanity. For the media says the world is bad due to the right! Or it is bad due to the left! Or there really is nothing to be afraid of, everything is perfect! Listen. I'm not saying I am a leader. I'm not pointing fingers at ideologies. I'm saying the rich and the corrupt have wreathed their slimy appendages around our throats and they will not let go. They have instituted a nearly worldwide Huxleyian society and made most governments Orwellian, a fatal combination. On top of this, they have monopolized us. Our blood. We have been cheated, lied, sold, stabbed in the -blam!- back. All for momentary gain, all a desperate act to stay in power for just a little longer. Hell, they're already assaulting the internet, simply because they cannot control it. I'm not saying vote your way out of this. The system is broken. No one can fix it. Your vote is worthless, regardless of where you live, for change, change comes only at the barrel of a gun. So no, I'm not saying that. I'm not saying any sort of political reform is the answer, I'm not saying any sort of religion is the answer. I'm not saying any man is the answer. I'm saying... Rise up. [/quote] Sir, are you mad? Parties are political ideologies, but people make it more. I'm not a serf... School schedules exist because of order and ease. Rule breaking is only shouting cusses out loud... Debt slavery?

[/quote] I don't think the American people have enough balls to rise up in a significant enough volume to actually cause the government to worry about us. So many of us would rather just be quiet, keep calm, and carry on. Sad, really.[/quote]Look at the amount of people who think that the government will never try to take us over again. I'm not saying that it is likely to happen now, but it will happen eventually. Maybe 50 years from now maybe 100. History always repeats itself. Governments have been doing this type of stuff for thousands of years. A couple hundred years isnt going to change that. [Edited on 05.04.2012 9:51 PM PDT]

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Chris Gotham When I was in the military there were quite a few NCOs I came across who really believed a Civil War was coming, and fast. I talked to some of them about it and honestly, I believe that if it were to happen the citizens could possibly win. No military or known militia can stand up to the United States Armed Forces in open conflict or conventional warfare. Instead, it would be winnable through bankrupting the government into collapse, and guerrilla warfare. That's how we're losing in Afghanistan, not because they can beat us military wise, but because they're beating us financially. Stack on top of that, how large and populated the United States is, combat personnel would be stretched to the breaking point. And many military members would desert and fight with for the populace. [/quote] Question is, how many soldiers will take up arms in support of the rebels? It's gonna take a lot to get us to the point of civil war. I see civil rights being destroyed and the constitution being abolished. That would lead us to the path I guarantee it.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] mr _super sauce There won't be an election? This is Obama trying to stay in office longer. IT'S JUST LIKE EMPEROR PALPATINE! [/quote] you best believe every redneck and their mother would be on the front steps of the white house if that happened. I don't think anyone in the government is stupid enough to do something completely radical all at once. That would gain too much attention from the people...instead it's a policy change here, another there, until there is massive change and the nation is scratching their heads asking "how did that just happen?"

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] coolmike699 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] BlazingAngel94 Maybe if America went back into isolationism like Washington wanted....... Seriously, when America practiced isolationism everything was fantastic. We only got involved in European affairs when American lives where being taken (Lusitania and Pearl Harbor). As a country, we were able to worry about the problems at home and improved a lot in American culture. I want an isolationist America![/quote] Yes, the years before WWII certainly were "fantastic". [/quote] If I've not mistaken, until some radicalprogressive ideas were implemented by a certain someone America was doing great prior to the 30s.
