    We are always saying if this was different or if I was this? What does America really want as a society or do we already have it?

      "America" wants exactly what we have now.

    (a) True Leadership(which is nothing compared to what's in office now)

    (b) True Equality(this should include a level playing field in the marketplace)

    (c) True Equal Rights(every aspect)

    (d) A Plan To Create True Growth

    (e) A Method to Keep Government at a Distance(while maintaining domestic protection and protection against foreign threats)

    (f) True Monetary Policy(quit printing money like it's going out of style and get government to work with the funds that are available- the debt system which has America in it's grasp is detrimental to growth)

    That's just a start. lol

      I predict that the United States money supply will revert back to a Gold standard within the next decade.  Either that or the Federal Reserve dollar will be dropped as the worlds reserve currency.  If that happens the current economic crisis will seem like a booming economy!

          Hey Ron, you're not going to have to wait 10 years to get the results of what the U.S. Government is doing. It's going to happen sooner. wink

            Steve Forbes believes this will occur after the election in November.

              It's going to be interesting, but what many fail to realize is that they think the poverty levels are getting too high now...just wait until America is switched back to Gold Standard...because all the prices for all the products that are imported into this country will sky rocket. Since there's very little manufacturing in America, even for the most basic things are already getting pricey for some if  not most. Which is why the Economy isn't growing like it should be.

              Things are going to get really rough in the near future and I know it's going to happen.

                Unless we switch to a currency that is not controlled by any government or any financial institutions.  The Bitcoin for example:


                http://business.time.com/2011/06/29/bit … z1terrbGiM




                The lure of Bitcoins, beside their anonymity, is that the tender is not run by a government or central bank. No quantitative easing here. The number of Bitcoins increase at a constant rate, much like legendary economist Milton Friedman proscribed for a stable currency. At a time when a rising number of countries are in financial trouble that seems sensible. And yet silly at the same time. Here’s why:

        No need to predict anything. As long as government continues to use a debt system as a form of generating currency it will cause a complete collapse of U.S. currency. Which will automatically force the U.S. to return to the Gold Standard.

        It is the path the U.S. Government has taken but apparently not realized where the end of the path actually leads to.

      Guns aren't the only thing people use to kill each other you know.

      Next thing you know, we'll be debating the amendment that says everyone has a right to bear poison darts!
