The most destructive words in American History.

Then what....TOO LITTLE TO SAVE?

Whatever integrity or rule of law this nation had was thrown out the window.

Soon you will understand.......

True, but that happened a long time ago. It's just taken sixty or seventy years for the citizenry to realize it. Even now, though, not enough see it.

Anyone else remember Roosevelt trying to attach a tax increase amendment as a rider to a Senate bill, in direct contradiction of the Constitutional requirement that all such bills must start in the House? Then, when the public went berserk over it, he claimed it wasn't his idea. Senator Pat Harrison took the heat for that one, even though everyone knew at the time it wasn't his doing.

Or, the gold clause cases during the same period, in which the Supreme Court decided that it was OK for the government to rewrite your private contracts, because the Constituation grants Congress the power to set the value of money and that power supercedes your right to not have your contracts arbitrarily amended (gold certificates in lieu of gold) by the State.

The rule of law has been under attack in this country almost since the beginning.  Anyone who thinks that this is something new that started in the last several years is late to the game. 

Don't you sometimes just want to say, "Stick a fork in it...."

and the many sat there saying nothing......as the few took in billions and the little that was left.....while the many lost their homes and  livlihoods.

The insane aspect about this is the few were just as bankrupt as the many.

Now, not only is our present system financially bankrupt...it is morally corrupt.  How do you think the people are going to react once they figure this out?

Crazy.....

I already know how they are going to react, and so do you. We know because they already have it figured out. They don't want to admit it, though; they deny themselves this knowledge. Because to admit that the system is corrupt, that the government is systematically raping its citizens, that corporations have enslaved them, well, that knowledge demands action. Most people don't want to take action; hell, alstry, they wouldn't know what action to take even if they wanted to! 

I've been reading and rec'ing your posts for over a year. I get the sense that you are waiting for "the sleeping giant" to awaken, and for the people to take back their country, their economy and their society. My friend, and I say this with a heavy heart, I am afraid that isn't likely to happen. Oh, it could, but I put the odds 3:1 against. And here is why:

The strange part about this most recent one is that so few PRIVATE parties OPENLY benefitted and so many lost out.......

Those private parties have figured out that all they need do is provide bread and circuses and all will go as planned.  As long as the television stays on, Wal-mart keeps the shelves stocked with cheap trash and McDonald's keeps pushing grease and salt pressed into the form of food...nothing will happen.

If there was going to be an uprising, it would have happened already.  This whole election nonsense, with voting out the incumbents just to vote in other career politicians from the same two parties is a broken plan...imagine the shock on the voters faces when they realize in 18 months that they've been had....AGAIN

The Digital Age is here my friend....it will be exciting.

Changes are forthcoming that will improve man's existence dramatically....in the meantime, the process of change will be convulsive for many.
