certainly is an Empire and one whose many credit cards are redlined. Any
country that has military forces in over 120 countries worldwide
overwhelmingly qualifies as an Empire. Unfortunately this Empire is on its
way down. Inevitably, the windows on America's storefront will be papered
over and the doors locked its just a matter of time.
The American Empire has trillions of dollars in debt, much of which is
*unfunded*, and its' rapidly growing. The debtload is one that will *NEVER*
be paid off. Ever. And, this is by design of course. Bush, the big
government socialist, will continue to play his role and spend the American
Empire into oblivion.
Government spending by Bush has gone through the roof ever since he was
strategically allowed to be front man for the people who put him there and
continue to control him.
The only thing keeping that country alive is the military industrial
complex, which is why the USA *must* continually be at war or "peacekeeping"
duty. If the USA radically downsized its military, pulled out of Iraq /
Afghanistan and brought its troops home from numerous bases around the world
its already fragile economy would go immediately tits up tomorrow. Everyone
wants army bases to close - except not in their area, its bad for business!
Ever wonder what the retail price tag is on a single stealth bomber?
And Bush, the phoney pinko conservative sellout, wants to EXPAND the
military?? I guess there are a few countries left on the Earth that don't
have Empirical military bases on them.
Soldiers don't create or produce anything. They destroy. I am not saying a
country doesn't need adequate defences, because it does - just not in 120
countries. But ask any beekeeper: how many soldier drones does the hive need
versus worker drones? The USA's imbalanced quota of non-producing soldier
drones far outweighs the hives ability to sustain itself, the soldiers
included. Imagine if there were nothing but soldier drones and no workers -
who'll feed the hive?
The USA is getting its ass kicked in Iraq. The USA can win battles, but they
are going to lose this war. Just like Vietnam. The British got their asses
kicked in Afghanistan. So did the Russians. Now it is the Americans turn.
My point is should Canadians be accepting an increasingly valueless currency
from an Empire that is already living on borrowed time, at considerable
interest so to speak, for Canadian goods. I say make actual trade with the
USA using tangeable assets as the medium of exchange - NOT U.S. federal
reserve notes. Canadian timbre or Tar Sand oil, for U.S. gold. and so forth.
With a cash register full of IOU's it'll get kinda hard to pay the bills...
