**WARNING*** Language and get's pretty loud at certain parts....
We have been fucked FAR too long. Our taxpayer money has been spent on the bailout and now for future generations will be burdened by it. America has driven up a unprecedented financial debt. The American people are suffering.
America and the world economic system is collapsing and our politicians in D.C. are prolonging the collapse of capitalism. Capitalism stretched itself into a speculative market where this mess stems from. All the derivatives that can't be paid back have NO value, therefore government is printing off bailout money to "back" the companies bad assets with ironically money that was printed off with no value. I implore everyone to gain understanding in money creation and see that our current economic system leads to these massive bubbles and the eventual bursting of them.
The companies are still bankrupt and we have to step up to the plate and fix this mess for ourselves because obviously the politicians aren't doing whats best for the U.S. people. Rather, they have chosen to let the American people suffer while saving the maliciously GREEDY and SAVAGE corporations.
Let me say this LOUD and clear. The governments role was never to prop up failing corporations but rather do what's for the COMMON good for the U.S. people. Meaning education, health care, infrastructure, defense, etc. Conflict of interest arises when high ranking officials are involved in businesses (Bloomberg, Cheney, Bush, etc) and in high ranking positions in the government. Government isn't for profit nor shall it ever be. It's purpose is to distribute taxes BACK to the people, at the local, state and federal level to promote the general welfare and prosperity for all. I'm seeing democracy being subverted right before my eyes and I'm only 19. Any adults want to make the same realization or just think to themselves that "this is how the system works." One must realize, when born into this world, we are truly free. However, we construct institutions within the world (religion, government, economic) to create order and growth. However, when these institutions start working against the majority of people and only for the minority (rich elite) in this case, we must ask ourselves if this system is working for us. If not, CHANGE IT. Nothing, NOTHING is stagnant. So to think that this is the way it is, is ignorance. 1. choose to stay ignorant or 2. do some research on economics, apply it to the current situation and how corruption between corporations and the U.S. government on all levels has led to our problems to this point. Even out the power levels in the world and work for fairness. Without power, a small group of people will have a tough time keeping control. Break the power structure, break the system. Lets work towards world prosperity where fairness and the true values will reign supreme.
