Happy End of America Day!

Four years ago today was September 19, 2008: the day capitalism died.

Four years later, we've got a record number of Americans on food stamps, plummeting labor force participation, $16 trillion in debt, and four consecutive trillion-dollar deficits. The TSA goons grope women and children for the crime of traveling about the country, and our global military empire terrorizes people in countless foreign lands.

The U.S. has plummeted to #18 among nations in economic freedom.

And we're dangerously close to re-electing a President who believes in central planning rather than free enterprise, and executive orders rather than the Constitution.

Liberty was fun here while it lasted.  See you in the next country.

And where would that be?

As for me, I hold out hope that the young adults of today will eventually get our country (and others) back on track, even though it will probably take decades of sustained effort. Among the Gen Y crowd, I sense a groundswell of disgust and contempt for the actions of their elders. Not only in the USA, but all across Europe, all across the Arab world, and elsewhere too.

Worldwide generational theft and crimes against humanity is what it is.

Anon, working in San Francisco, which is certainly an extreme, I get the sense that the young people here would prefer if Obama had dictatorial powers. They believe in a myth of a super human figure who's purpose in life is to satisfy what they imagine is right and smote what they imagine is wrong. If it were up to the majority of people I interact with on a daily basis, Congress would be dissolved, Obama would be crowned monarch and Republicans would be sent to concentration camps because they are the purest form of evil there is.

The young people don't want to think they want to believe and once they've associated with a party they stop all form of logical investigation and march full speed into fascism.

I'm waiting for a much younger analogue of Ron Paul to appear.

In an election, that person will sweep the youth vote in a landslide.

some of smaller cantons in Switzerland are pretty free. Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landsgemeinde
Of course, you will need tons of money to get residence there.

I'm reading Sovereign Man regularly and thinking about signing up for the paid subscription.

There are some small European countries that work, but they are more expensive to get into. Latin America has some nice choices for refugees with more modest means.

w.c., are you naive to believe that romney is going to be any different? romney, who openly declared his support for ndaa.. whos running mate, paul ryan, has voted for tarp, bailouts of gm/chrysler, medicare expansion, increases in debt ceiling, ndaa,patriot act, etc etc. please. stop propagating the false left/right paradigm. both parties have worked beautifully to gut this country of its liberties. its time for a third party.

You got a point there

There is only one party. The fact that the Party divides itself into 2 factions does not at all mean that there is not only 1 central control of our government. And my hunch is that the Marriner Eccles building is more important than the White House and the Capital Building combined.

Not a single day goes by that I don't ask myself how in the hell we got to a place where we have to root for Romney.

The disinformation and election interference is coming from inside the house
