Since 1992 the so called wealth in America is & has been proven to be based on lies o& BS. The dotcom's, Enron, real estate & now the auto industry. We have no one to blame but our selves. We believed that wealth could be created without producing anything. Just shifting paper & more paper created an illusion. I think our next Pres. & the Democrats will be presiding over the largest going out of business sale in history. What we did to the old Soviet block in the late 80's, the Arabs (oil producers) with the help of corrupt politicians & businessmen have done to our country in 2008. Our country is bankrupt & our country is devoid of good leadership when we really need it. The next 18 months will be the most trying in my lifetime. I'm 66, but I do not want to see the hardships that are going to be endured by alot of people in our country. This is beyond politics--It is our nations survival which is at stake.
