<quoted text>Ed, you said it well. I applaud your post. When Kennedy decided to challenge the Federal Reserve..........well, we know the rest of the story. You have a level headed approach, got a plan?
Yep....all you have to do is look at the red seal US Notes (issued directly by the Treasury AT NO INTEREST---that was the key) that JFK had put into circulation to compete with the Federal Reserve Notes, and one of LBJ's first EO's was to rescind Kennedy EO that put that in place to figure out WHO the money behind the coup was.....

I gave Phil Roe a $5 US Note in person one day, and asked him to go to DC and figure out WHY we have to use Fed Notes (at interest) instead of US Notes at no cost to us......have yet to hear back from him on that issue.

IF you want to know how things work in this country on a national ( or often local as well ) scale, FOLLOW THE MONEY.

As for my own personal plan, well, heck, I'm getting on in years, and ain't gonna be around that much longer anyway, so I'll leave the long term problems to another generation. In the mean time, we've pretty much hunkered down on a little homestead, grow most of our own food, produce all of our own power (solar), and just try our best to use as little of the "system" as possible.

Starve the beast should be a national policy !

<quoted text>Yep, I agree. But what's your solution?
I don't think there IS a solution. We will continue on this merry-go-round until it flies off the axle and crashes.

That crash will come in the form of a hyper inflation end ( think Weimar Germany )or the US 'buck' losing world reserve currency status, in which case we'll have to pay the true price of all the stuff ( like oil, foods, manufactured goods ) that we import to live as high on the hog as we've lived since WW2, or some other type of axle breaking event.

THEN there will be social chaos as the 50-60% living on one govt tit or the other is suddenly weaned. It's going to make the Great Depression look like a Sunday picnic.

We'll likely go back to re-building, using honest money again, until the banksters pull out the exact same playbook and run it again for a few generations. People don't tend to learn from history.....probably because they don't take the time to study it.

The answer is really quite as simple as looking at past and recent history.
I would rely on recent history to see that a nation divided is a nation that is doomed to fail. I would open my doors and encourage bipartisan input in solving the most pressing issues our country is facing such as health care, immigration, the economy, etc. When Washington unites, so will the people.
I would rely on past history to see that immigrants built this country and made it what it is today. I would embrace our immigrants' desire to live in our country, yet still require them to fulfill stringent requirements to become an American.
I would rely on recent history to see that we live in a very diverse country with regions that have different "personalities." Instead of forcing the will of the federal government on the states, I would acknowledge the fact that what is good for California and New York might not be good for Texas and Tennessee, etc. I would cede more power to the states to do what is right for their own citizens and remove a majority of federal government intervention into states' rights.
I would rely on past history to see that most failed societies succumbed to a loss of values and morals. I would bring together leaders from all religious faiths and non-religious practices to seek ways to maintain our morals and values, both religiously and non-religiously, while still being respectful of others who do not share those same beliefs.
I would encourage economic growth through jobs. Our country's strength was gained through manufacturing and we must eliminate or modify those treaties, pacts, laws, etc. that stifle business development in our country. I would work to make it affordable to once again operate a business in the US while still ensuring that employees' rights are protected, yet not extreme.
Instead of being divisive, I would work towards unifying our people by seeking different perspectives to solve problems instead of shutting the door to other possibilities besides my own. In other words, I would do the opposite of what Obama has done the past five years.
Nice thoughts. Too late. The Great Uniter, not divider is in Crawford Texas hosing what's left of that hag he has for a wife, I want war. I see the tea party as domestic enemies of freedom and democracy. I want my granddaughter to be free. Line 'em all up.

Send me Sarah Palin and Rick Perry first. I don't know which one wears the most makeup. I'm way past debate and so are they. I say wee find a way to seperate. Let them be governed by corporations and let is govern ourselves like it says in the constitution. A tea bagger and booker Phillips are too stupid to be American . That can't see that FIX news works for the wealthy, polluting parasites of our great country . I couldn't care less how rich they are.mthey should be grateful that they are rich, but that's not enough. They want to own people too. And they own booker Phillips. Well, they don't own me and they won't own my posterity. Phillips stood by and allowed the US chamber of Commerce ship all our industry to China and then create their own propaganda news station. Sean Hannity would sell his mother.

No sir, the time for peace is passed. Time we seperate.

It's sepArate. Anyone surprised that someone as stupid as you cannot spell what he advocates? The best analysis I ever read about how the country ended up with such poor leadership was the cop who worked the Seattle airport. He had just arrested a U.S. Senator for lewd conduct in the mens bathroom.(propositioning) When the Senator tried to intimidate him by showing him his "U.S. Senator" business card and saying "what do you think of that" the kid said "no wonder the countries going to hell in a handbasket." What bathrooms do you hang out in. I want to avoid them.

If I were president I would drop back and punt. He has made such a mess of everything he touched. I bet J. Carter is laughing his but off. Now he is the second worst president ever.

Lots of the stuff made sense. We are absolutely doomed. You were doing so well, until you turned the pen on Obama. If you put the hope or the blame on one man, and that's all he is, then we remain sunk. Frankly, I see Mitch McConnell of a kentucky as an absolute Treasonist and I wouldn't put Ron Ramsey out of he was on fire. But I'd drop all that to meet in the middle to save the country for your children even if that meant civil war. My granddaughter is going to live free. And I won't let REICHT winged nazis take it from her.

Look at this new Governor from North Carolina. If the idea is to win an election and then get in there to piss the other half off, then were done. I think that's what Ramsey does. But if that's what Blountville wants then that's what they can have. No economy. Just hate and division. Christian liquor in grocery Stores, voter Supression . I mean the Sheeple have fallen for this KOCHSUCKER since what 1996? He's garbage.

I think we are past meeting in the middle. I think it's time we parted. Divorced, if you will. Let the REICHT wing be run by $7 per hour McDonald's and purchased politicians and let the left be run by true democracy.

And since you brought up Obama, I'll bring up Bush. I think he should be hanging by the end of a rope for the murdered people in Iraq and elsewhere around the world.

My answer is to find a peaceful SEPERATION. I really don't want Teabaggers in my neighborhood and I'm not sorry for it. I'd much rather, much rather have peaceful Muslims .... And immigrants ..... All those mentioned on the Statue of Liberty.

Aw, come on fellers. I hear very few remarks on what YOU would do as the next president. I'm hearing a lot of bitching and finger pointing, whining and excuses of blame, but what would YOU do as the next president? For you slow heads, let me rephrase: Suddenly you have become the president of the USA..........what are you going to do now to fix the mess? Please refrain from smart ass/dumb ass remarks and prognostications of doom and despair. Let's hear your plan. For the few of you who have actually responded with a solution, thanks. For the rest of you, quit your bitching, stand and deliver. Let's hear it! Got a plan?

First I would curtail a lot of the money sent to other countries in form of Foreign Aid, and use that money to help the poor in our own country.
Second I would start a weekly Press Hour and cover what I had tried to do for our Citizens and name names of Congressmen and Senators who voted against these attempts and who and how much they took in funds from the companies that these affected.
Third I would bring jobs back home by repealing NAFTA or attempt to pass a tax on goods being shipped in by these so called American Companies that would cost these owners so much they would have to return to the U.S. or see "Second Above"
Start a program similar to the old WPA program and put a lot of these welfare people to work if they refused then no work no eat and no roof over head. I believe you can teach anyone to use a pick, shovel and wheelbarrow ! In states that raise them we would have a program called WPP, "WE PICK PRODUCE" that would cover the loss of Illegal Aliens doing it.
Forth If a person is a Illegal Alien then the first word of that phrase sums it up they are here Illegally. Round them up and ship them home. Tighten up our borders with new hire Officers to supplement the one's already there and maintain a border like every other country in the world has. You do not cross or get shot. It is a simple rule to understand and even a moron could figure it out. If I do A then B will happen.
Fifth I would report to the Public every dime any Congressman or Senator took from Lobbyist's on the weekly session's. Let the People know how corrupt things are. That way when they vote the will know what they are electing.
Last I would do everything in my power to return the Government back to the control of the people and then ask for a small Headstone be placed over my Grave when The Big Money and Covert out of control agencies had me killed.
