Is Obama Wrong on Ukraine?

The ONLY reason the wars were started in Iraq, Libya, with attempts in Syria, Iran & Ukraine, is to protect the Petro-Dollar, which is doomed anyway. The WMDs in all cases were the excuse to pump up the ignorant masses here at home.

A one party system with two competing branches (DEM & GOP) fighting for a turn at the trough, will never abolish the Federal Reserve, enact term limits, go to a consumption or flat tax, make all bail-outs illegal, and put all regulations through a 'cost-benefit' analysis to determine if the impact to the economy is detrimental. Soooooo folks, we're screwed.

It will be more of the same, UNLESS . . . . . Term Limits, Abolish the Federal Reserve, go to a Consumption / Flat Tax and NO BAIL OUTS for anyone. This would move the control back to the people, instead of the Bankster Cartel, who treats our Presidents as 'puppets'. Roschild once said, "Give me control of a Nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws", so wake up America. We have a one party system, controlled by the Cabal, with two competing wings (DEMS & GOP) fighting each other for a turn at the trough.

The End of Ideology?

We're being taken apart from the inside, and our distraction is global conflict. The American public is not buying it. Let's focus on bringing down the Federal Reserve, enact Term Limits for the self serving political class and resurrecting our shredded constitution. Last, let's convict the law makers who broke laws and re-institute public hangings to show the political class, just who is in charge again.
What's the motivation to do what you suggest Dan, they're all Progressives ! ! ! !. We have ONE party, with two wings, the DEM wing, and the GOP wing, and the elections are all about who is best at misleading the public to determine who get the next 4 years at the public trough. If you don't get that Dan, I would have to label you a 'closet' Progressive, waiting for your turn at the trough.
100% correct Matt. What politician will move in this direction ? Dump the Federal Reserve, which is a private corporation ripping of the citizens of the USA since 1913, financing wars to line their own pockets, funding both sides. Set up a new State Banking System (North Dakota), eliminate the income tax and move to a consumption tax. Cut the Federal Gov't in half and let the States do what they were intended to do. Close our borders and staff them with guards in security towers with orders to shoot to kill, any person trying to get in or out illegally. Oppose any move to the New World Order, which will reduce us to a third world nation. You can continue now and complete the next 50 pages, and then let's look for someone with the intestinal fortitude to run with it.
Payroll taxes are but one component that led to 'offshoring'. In California and New York, 60 cents of every dollar earned goes to some sort of tax at the local, state & federal level. Add to that the cost of labor including workman's comp, and onerous regulations and you'll get the picture. During the years 2000 through 2008, there were more crippling regulations enacted than all previous presidents combined, and between 2008 and 2012, regulations enacted, were doubled again (George Mason University study). The result of taxes and regulations were (for the first time in our history), were more business failures than startups (back to back to back to back), and you can source this info through the gov't BLS database. The Hudson Institute conducted a study to show that actual 'start-ups' are declining, so what does this mean ? Looks to me like a systematic effort by the BIG GOV'T / BIG BUSINESS believers, to kill the middle class in favor of those that are willing to pay bribes (oops, I mean campaign contributions). Moving your manufacturing offshore, unfortunately, may be the only means to survival.
Google and read the Ambassador Leo Wanta biography (FREE e-book) and you'll have all the documentation you need to NEVER elect a Bush or Clinton again. The Ambassador at 73, is still alive and fighting for the trillions that we earmarked to pay off the US debt, before the politicians we all voted for, stole it.
Mike, the desert was turned into farmland with an intricate system of canals, which has worked for a hundred years. The problem is, the EPA keeps flushing the water out into the ocean so some species of 'bait' can survive, while farmers starve with 40% unemployment. Flush the EPA and we'll be just fine.
You hit the nail on the head Austin with regards to a solution to the jobs problem, in that government needs to get out of the way and let Free Enterprise Entrepreneurs start new businesses, which the Hudson Institute says are on the decline, but you don't go far enough, and tell us how. If you don't know, then why not solicit ideas from your readers ? I'll start the ball rolling. 1) Start a new class of business for all new start ups (Enterprise Corp) that is 100% exempt from local, State & Federal taxes for 5 years PROVIDING that new corp can verify at least one (FTE) person on the payroll for that and each subsequent year and that employee would pay all the necessary taxes. 2) Designate 'Enterprise Zones' in multiple inner cities and provide space at no charge to those businesses for 5 years, and ask the Corporate World for help in providing that space. Once an Enterprise Corp 'graduated' after 5 years, it would convert to an S Corp, LLC, LP or Parnership of some sort (paying taxes) and would move to new facilities, pay rent and open up space for a replacement in the free space. 3) Reduce the permitting process to ONE DAY, just like it is in Hong Kong, and make it available online and inexpensive. 4) In the Enterprise Zones, make office space available for the SBA, Community College Mentor, High School Mentor, Faith Based Mentor, and a Sports or Entertainment Celeb Mentor (let's show support and that we're serious). 4) Start teaching students from the 5th grade the benefits of Free Enterprise Capitalism, and knock off the "Julia is Good, Business is Bad" mantra. 5) Eliminate 100% of any capital gains tax on those that invested in these start ups, with no time limit on equity redemption. THIS WOULD COST THE GOVERNMENT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, BUT IT WOULD EXPOSE THE FAILURE OF GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION, AND AGENCY OVERREACH (EPA, ADA, MLRB,IRS, ETC), SO THE CHANCE OF HAVING IT ADOPTED IS PRETTY LOW, SO LET'S EXPOSE THAT. Make yourself useful Austin and get behind this and become part of the solution, since you have a 'Mini-Pulpit' TO BLOVIATE from.
