Thomas Jefferson Quote

Agriculture, manufactures, commerce, and navigation, the four pillars of our prosperity, are the most thriving when left most free to individual enterprise.

Preparing for the future
I think that if you aren't in debt and if you are prepared for the mess that the federal government will wreak on the economy as they destroy the dollar, then it really won't affect you too much. Food storage, gold, and no debt are the keys to riding this one out. America made it through one Great Depression. I'm sure she can make it through another. Of course, many people will suffer greatly. This crisis could have been predicted a hundred years ago when the Federal Reserve was created and the government was given the power to tax progressively, 2 central tenets of karl marx spelled out in his communist manifesto. Will people ever learn the lessons of history? NO. Every generation must make the same mistakes over and over, because generally people want to believe they can get something for nothing and there are always politicians, hungry for power, that are willing to tell them what they want to hear. I am amazed at the arrogance of Obama though. It shouldn't surprise me though. He is a very self-confident man and speaks about bi-partisanship and the importance of unity, but in the end "It's his way or the highway" and unity means uniting under his belief system. He's the typical liberal or progressive who believe they are open-minded, which gives him great comfort, but really his is just as close-minded as we all are with an added caveat, he is willing to use government force to make people believe what he believes, whereas I would never do that. That is the difference between a conservative and a liberal, progressive. They would use government force to implement their world view. Conservatives would not. They generally believe that the government should interfere as little as possible in people's lives. It's time for a third party. The Republicans are dead. The Democrats are socialists. There is no real representation for the majority of Americans who are conservative. We are forced every 2 or 4 years to hold our noses and vote for the best of the worst.
