Two Ways of Conquering and Slaving

US ex-President John Adams said long time ago: "There are two ways of conquering and slaving a nation. One is by sword. The other is by debt." So today I want to congratulate the «system» for becoming so efficient over the centuries in getting people 'in debt up to their ears'. LOL

  1. I'm sad to say this, but I've given up on this country. We can blame the government all we want, for starting wars, huge spending on the military, huge spending all sorts of other unnecessary things, all the while trying to CUT taxes for the people who should be paying more of them, but the fact of the matter is, most Americans like this system. We want to have everything and pay nothing, and only now, after our government is about to shut down, after we're $14 TRILLION in debt to China, only NOW do we elect the fiscally conservative people, most of whom aren't even living up to their promises. Well done, America. Well done.

  9. I believe debt should be active to a certain amount of people that have thousands of pounds/dollars/euro. Why won't they leave us alone...?
