Oh, what fools we voters be. We keep re-electing the same politicians, who, without any collateral damage, destroyed this great nation from within economically. Congress’ approval ratings are bottom-fishing, yet 85 percent will be re-elected instead of being fired for dereliction of duty.
They have delegated their responsibilities to faceless, unelected bureaucrats who rang the death-knell on our manufacturing jobs: NAFTA, CAFTA and Most Favored Nation status to China.
The big swooshing sound that followed took our jobs and tax base, enriching few, but heaping poverty and despair on millions of jobless citizens.
How long can we continue down this primrose path on borrowed money? At some point when our credit is cut off, and the producers can no longer support the corrupt at the top and the indolence at the bottom, the safety net will break, then we will have anarchy, and those who don’t have weapons will be at the mercy of the anarchists as happened in Greece. It can happen here!
If America keeps borrowing trillions to instill the illusion of prosperity, at some point the debt will be unsustainable, and when the ship of state takes its final plunge to the bottom, the undertow will make ’29 look like a coming attraction.
