I do know that the U.S is in route to the same problems however the media is making it out that we are recovering. If we are recovering and we are becoming self sufficient in the energy resources area "OIL" then why is gas so high? If we are not needing all the oil we have and we are now selling oil to other countries why are we paying more at the pump than we ever have?
Stop lying and tell the truth, that is all I want. I am not stupid and I do not deserve to be lied to. I see right through their car salesman slogans. Elect me and I will make everything right. Everyone will get a job "government doesn't control this, business's do" Everyone will have SS/medicare/ these organizations are in the negative every year because there are not enough people working to keep up with those that are taking. Stop taking our money and spending it on other crap and making us think you are saving it. Government doesn't know what the word save means. I want a president that speaks the truth no matter how crazy it sounds. I don't want a president that blows smoke up everyone's A$$ and tells them everything if fine.
you know one reason, IMO, my the prices of oil are going up has to affected by the fact that the value of the dollar is going down. since opec still prices oil is USD the market has to adjust for inflation.
so anytime we authorize deficit spending, printing and borrowing money prices of everything will increase.
heard an example one time that the price of goods never really increases just because of time. example. in ancient Rome you could get a pair of good sandals, a leather belt and a tunic or whatever they call what they wore(nice version) for a 1 oz gold coin. consider the price of an oz of gold today, for one oz gold coin you can still get a nice pair of shoes a suit and a belt and a tie... the cost of services didn't go up- the value of our currency is drastically decreasing.
i know we agree on the subject of were our country seems to be headed, and it is very scary.
while people rabble over health care and which religious groups should/shouln't pay for birth control, and while people rabble over frivolous stuff like Limbaugh calling that girl a slut, it only distracts us from the real issues and the real risks our country faces.
ron paul is one of the only guys in politics today that seems to address the real issues, and he has been doing so for 30 years.
