errrr i cant blame obama for americas problems today, its been along time coming. 20-30 years atleast, we have been living it up on borrowed money for awhile now. Obamas crap is just adding to the pile that was already there. They keep talking about the economy returning to normal and im asking, is borrowing money just to run the basics of the country normal? For the most powerful country in the world? Really?
Its not like the repubs would come riding in on a white horse in shining armor and make everything better, esp not when you are talking about how we should start a war we cant afford.
As for how the world views america, you better start caring. Thanks to our government which has made america non self suficient thru outsourcing and allowing businesses to take advantage of slave labor, we cant just do as we damn well please anymore. When the ball was in our court sure, but not now.
The time to realize that america is losing its power is fast approaching. We will soon be knocked off as the biggest economy, businesses are foaming at the mouth at the profits they can make in asia,america is a has been, yet when their company gets in trouble due to the recession they can have the same people they laid off bail them out. They have allowed greedy business to transfer americas wealth and true power to asia.
Ive always felt it wasnt right for america to start any war. You are worried how we will be viewed if we dont act. The attitude that we should get involved with everything has really backfired on us. After WW2, america was respected for its military power. Then came korea and vietnam which showed the enemy how to defeat us, tie us up in guerilla warfare. People say it was the liberals and democrats back home that lost the war but how can you win a war when you dont attack? We could have invaded north vietnam and korea and ended it but we didnt because we were scared of russia and china. Ever hear the saying, its best to stay quiet and be thought an idiot instead of opening your mouth and removing all doubt. That analogy kinda fits to what im trying to say. We should have only entered a war we fully intended to finish, otherwise its a waste of money and american lives.
America was a problem solver who normally stayed neutral. It specifically says to do this in the constitution and we have done the opposite and look what it has done to the nation. I know times have changed but if america had stayed neutral and had stayed the manufacturing capital of the world and just minded our business i think we would be better off. The most important thing to me is my country and the american people, honestly i dont give a shit about the communists chinese that are starving, or the repressed iraqis, or the south koreans. Maybe they need to get off their asses and do something about it. After all, america wasnt created out of thin air. A buncha rag tag militia took on the most powerful military in the world and built america from nothing.
Look up eishenhowers farewell speach where he warns the nation against becoming what it has, the "military industrial complex"
The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
