Unhappy $12,544,703,929,352.55 - March 10, 2010, 10:09 AM

I was reading a thread yesterday and it was talking about taxes and inevitably slid into politics. So much stupidity and the like in the thread but hey, itís the internet. Well friends, Iím here to start a thread in the non-sportbike chat. Those blinded by politics or enslaved by that fat Rush goober, hereís some real straight talk.

15 Years ago Perot told us but we buried our heads in the sand. On the way home yesterday I was listing to an interview with David Walker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_M...ler_General%29 )

The interview:
http://www.npr.org/templates/rundown...n.php?prgId=13
Itís the link about After Financial Ruin, Plotting America's 'Comeback'


From 1/2008

Ride your motorcycle and enjoy life. Talk/type junk but the reality of the situation is very clear.

China owns us. We borrowed money from commies and now we owe them. Godless, freedom-hating commies. Every president did.

Last I heard about social security, is that it's gonna be gone in 2017 (this was a few years ago). Does that mean that we're all gonna keep paying the same social security amounts, and the people getting paid social security will get less? WTF is gonna happen with that? I'm investing in my retirement under the assumption that I will never have social security paid to me, and I will have to rely purely on my own investments.

Ron Paul has been talking about this stuff for many, many years...

Libertariansim is the idea that you have to do most of the "taking care of yourself". It's about owning the personal responsibility for your well being. It is the antithesis of socialsim. It believes in breaking things down into smaller systems that do not support each other, so that systems that have flawed, short lifecycles fail.

For instance, Federalization of drug enforcement would go away. Some states would allow drugs, if the system was flawed then those states would fail, and fall into chaos prompting the people to either move to states that support sustainable lifecycles ... a darwinian solution.

DON'T LEGISLATE COMMON SENSE! When I finally decide to run for office it will be under that heading. People might want an over-watch. Someone to blame for thier own stupidity or neglegence, but in the end it doesn't do anything but enslave them to mediocrity.

Ron Paul is has very radical ideologies but they sometimes very to be too idealistic .. I would love to see them in effect but they are hard to implement in capitalist America

Unfortunately social security is the 'third rail' of politics, no politician will touch it who can actually affect it because the only solutions are ones the public does not want to hear.

1. End SS, younger generation keeps paying for the next 15-20 years but never sees a dime, nor does any other future generation.

2. Raise the retirement age.

3. Raise taxes to pay for SS.

4. Combination of the above.

Then why don't all you USA haters fucking leave then! GTFO of my country! Yes we have problems but so do most others! For begin such a young country we have it way better than others. Have any of you been to a 3rd world country? Would you go live there? I have only traveled a bit but what I have seen makes me glad I live were I do. Yes things could be better but they could be a lot worse! Go live in another country and make 30% of what you make now and try to enjoy the things you have or want! Ever wonder why so many want to come live here?
