The published GDP numbers seem fudged. I believe actual growth has been flat or negative for a least 10 years. The solution is for the bureaucrats in the executive branch and the legislature (as well as the legislators) to resign so that central planning can be minimized - or better still, abandoned as the Framer had intended. Bt tha won't happen.
@The "delighted by the misfortune of others"... I tend to agree. In lieu of your statement, I shall quote the "Iron Chancellor" ... "The great issues of the day will not be settled by speeches and majority votes, but by blood and steel." I repeat this not so much out of admiration, rather, resignation to fact.
@crash -- Rubbish! The independent Colonies were forged through violent conflict. How can the fact be denied?
No one mentions repealing the 16th Amendment and replacing it with the Fair Tax. Plus, the repeal of the 17th Amendment is hardy ever considered.

I don't think there is a government. I don't think we've had proper government for quite some time. I think we have evolving fiefdoms that will ultimately devolve into social structures not witnessed since the Dark Ages in the Western world after the 3rd fall of Rome (1. Sacking of Rome by Trans-alpine Gauls, 2. The Roman Civil War, 3.The capitulation of Rome to the Vandal and Goth tribesmen) .

I loved the Von Ludendorff quote. One thing to bear in mind is the role that each and every American citizen played in in all of this. Past time to loo in the mirrorm reflect, and learn. History is not taught in the government schools. Therefore, we appear forced to repeat it.
