“We don't need to make any changes to the system. All we need to do is reverse all the changes to the system that have been put into place and allowed this to happen. Our original constitution had safeguards for almost everything that has gone wrong.”
“Of all people to be giving advice, Greenspan would be the last person We should listen to. When you destroy the world economy and get away with " I'm Sorry" you should go quietly into the night and hide somewhere. .”
“Since WWII the government has had mercy on the poor and tax shelters for the rich, leaving the middle class to carry the load. Now the middle class is shrinking at an alarming rate. Our government will decide who takes up the slack, and we have the best government money can buy.”
“You can try. But I realized during the big bailout that our Reps are far more afraid of the ruling class than they are of their constituents. So we can vote all we won't, But they will do as they are told.
Prepping is looking smarter all the time.”
“You are absolutely right. It worked for years,and it will work again. You cannot appeal to their morality or patriotism. Tax is the only thing they understand. They would be scrambling to invest that money back into the economy, rather than pay taxes. Either way it's Win Win”
“You hear the one about the farmer trying to sell a mule to another farmer. "This mule will do anything you tell him." The Farmer says "Prove it". So the farmer picks up a two by four and hits the mule right between the eyes. Hey!, What did you do that for? Well you have to get his attention first. So the question is how do we get their attention?”
“You know, If every country in the world is going broke, Then where did it all go? Did a few hundred greedy individuals rip off the whole planet? Almost every Constitution has safeguards against that,Don't they? It would appear not..”
“Fool me once,Shame on you.
Fool me twice, Shame on me.
I believe the people will really consider their votes this time around.
To many just blame whoever is in office at the time of their problems.
Maybe most will do a little research and see how we got hear.

“I mean people who are not posting on Huffpo or any other blog related to politics. More people will watch American Idol than will watch the any GOP debate or the POTUS debate or any show about politics.”
“Trickle Down Economics was a huge scam "forced" on the taxpayers. It might have limped along if everyone was willing to be in debt up to their eyeballs. But with job security practically non-existent most people are not willing to buy on credit. Most people buying on credit now are the least qualified to do so.”
“Tax is the great equalizer. We don't need to just tax the rich, We need to tax the devil out of the rich. That's the way it was done before. They would much rather invest that money back into the economy than pay taxes on it.
As we all know ,They don't like to pay taxes.”

“The rich need some incentive to work a little harder. The investor class has been a complete failure, not doing their jobs. Either they invest the money they have taken out of our economy over the past 30 years in creating American jobs; or, we take that money away from them through taxation and give it to someone who can/will invest it in the U.S.”
“We the people don't have a say in it anyway. In 2008 we had the loudest public opinion I have ever heard. 80% of the people were writing,emailing and telling their reps "No Bailout". And when they voted no, I thought it was a real victory for the people. But they bribed or threatened enough reps to get it passed anyway. That's taxation without representation. I don't think we can "vote" change for the better. We are past that stage.”

“Thank you for that reminder. If it happens again, I think the American people would truly rise to the occasion and vote out every person in Congress who voted for it.
We can't get $400 billion for a jobs program approved, but I have a feeling if the banks needed another bailout, we'd find up to a trillion for that purpose.”
