Yes, Stephen the US is massively in debt and slow world economic growth means that the US is not going to be able to spend it way out of debt. The EU countries are getting their house in order and will come out stronger because of it, however the US because it has stuck it head in the sand and refused to face reality and deal with reality is going to continue to seriously decline.

All of America’s allies are hoping that the Lockheed Martin F35 Joint Strker Jet get killed in the next round of military spending cuts. No country wants to buy them. Some interesting articles below.

“Government officials collude at the highest federal, state and local levels.”

From the 1776 Declaration of Independence: “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes. The history of the present King … is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states.
To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny.
He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution & unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:
For imposing taxes on us without our consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:
For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses.

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.”
