  •  right on! (none)
    those are the same arguments i like! when you start talking about the money, thet gets right to their mammon worshipping little hearts!

    i like to say "why have we turned over our security to the chinese? what if they stop buying our treasury bonds? they can pull the rug right out from under us! and they are godless communists!"

    when you start talking about debt and currency, it's hard for them to pull away from your frame.

    No member of our generation who wasn't a Communist or a dropout in the thirties is worth a damn. Lyndon B. Johnson

    •  turned over our security to the chinese (none)
      nice post maskling. We can't oppose the Chinese in geopolitics, they have too much power.

      This also fits in with the idea of government health insurance. Europeans beat us in global trade because their corporations don't have to pay for health insurance. The cost of a General Motors car versus the cost of a Toyota - GM isn't making money on cars anymore, they are making money on financing cars, they can't produce a real manufacturing profit. All due to health insurance.
