I'm afraid of Americans

We have FREEDOM in this country. Freedom to be as wealthy as you are willing to work to become. Plain and simple. If you don't like your job (not enough benefits, not enough pay, etc.), find another one. And, before you say anything, it really is that easy; People just take the easy way out and get gubermant assistance. Look at people in the projects/ghettos (you should be familiar with that word). Ask them when the last time they even FILED an income tax return was. I'll bet 90% say the've never had a job in their LIFE (I spent a LOT of time in the projects, I should know)! What happens is, a person's on welfare, then they have 10 kids, and WE THE PEOPLE support those kids until they're 18 (medical/housing/spending money/etc.), and then THEY get on welfare, and now THEY have 10 kids EACH, and WE THE PEOPLE support them too (isn't socialism wonderful). AND, IF they do happen to be employed, they get MASSIVE deductions from their income tax for each child (which WE'RE paying for anyways), so that's just extra "Obama-money" in their pockets (that's right, there is a way to file a tax return, and get ALL your money back PLUS some). Why the **** should someone that EARNED their money actually be forced to lower their quality of life so leaches like them can live BETTER? I say send them to Germany where they're welcome, and America will be better off. Then, we won't have to spend ourselves into oblivion anymore...you can! Oh, and you can have ALL the problems that come with them! It's only FAIR right, after all, you're criticizing OUR economic practices right!?! So, if yours is so great, I'm glad you stated you'd be happy to support their lazy asses. Just remember, it means YOU will live worse, not better. Like they always say, socialism is great until you run out of other people's money, and now it's your turn.

Hey Diablosho, you are right - here in the US we are also doing crazy things. We've got "green" dishwashing detergent that doesn't clean dishes. We replaced incandescent lightbulbs with ones that have hazardous MERCURY in them (they're greener! LOL) ... all kinds of crazy stuff going on here.
But ... here's the thing - no one has any money anymore to afford these expensive and useless programs. US is out of money. No matter how much people wish for more of these "nanny" type things - we won't be able to pay for them - so the gravy train for uselessness runs out soon.
That's the good news.
You know - I think we should have more liberty here in the US. Drugs should be legal - and steroids. People should be responsible for themselves.

I also think you are being pretty unfair to DAdams by taking his post out of context. I think it's pretty clear what he meant. I don't know, it just seems you are being very condescending (in the way a father speaks to his young son to instill his moral values), but I hope I'm wrong.

This is not a country issue. This is a mankind issue. It's time to look inside and not outside for the real problem! Only morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to life.

You can look at how many advances in science came about due to defense spending. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is the lifeblood of tomorrow's innovation, innovation that will continue to help and aid our citizens, not just feed them for a day.

Im afraid that the USA is following in the exact foot steps of the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire failed because of immigrants that refused to assimilate. Look at this country. Not only do we have immigrants that refuse to assimilate, we pay them to not assimilate, we force others to have to learn thier language, or at least be hassled by having to press #3 for English, we sacrifice our own history and traditions in the name of others religions. We will fall harder then Rome ever did. This country has stemmed so far from its roots that it is sickening. The only people who aren't struggling right now are welfare recepients and millionaires.

Let's not get into detail over what fear stands for exactly and who shall fear whom. The title of this thread might as well have been "Will the United states of debt get its act together or will Fox News / Tea Party activists continue to dumb the country down"?

Oh, and here's my source (CIA): https://www.cia.gov/library/publicat.../2186rank.html
Now, granted, it's from 2010, but I can't seem to find more current statistics.

Throw what stones you want but there would NOT be a Germany had the Allies decided to level it down to the last brick. The US with its mighty defense budget stopped that.
Surely as educated as you are you have heard of the Marshall Plan? It's easy for you to sit and to criticize from 4000 miles away. If you are so concerned about our debt, have your country repay the money spent enacting the reconstruction of your country. We could use it. Before interest in todays dollars, it's probably about $200 billion equivalent. Until that is settled, you can just remain quiet.

Whats funny is the Fox News / Tea Party crowd are the most active in dealing with the debt, by attempting to return the government to its original goals only, and returning social programs to the individual states, which is where it belongs.

As I said earlier....the parties are so similar now, that it is hard to see anyone who is truly a leader with the best interests of the people

In case you are wondering. Obama went back to the "more babies = more money" form of welfare.

Slightly off-topic, but still vital imho - if you take a look at the very first family introduced (beginning a 1:46 min.) in this election message from 2008, would it be fair to call this family "white trash posing as middle class"?
