Fascism is Happening in America
The Current U.S. Government practices in the markets and erosion of liberty is economic and militaristic classic fascism.

"Mussolini also eliminated the ability of business to make independent decisions: the government controlled all prices and wages, and firms in any industry could be forced into a cartel when the majority voted for it. The well-connected heads of big business had a hand in making policy, but most smaller businessmen were effectively turned into state employees contending with corrupt bureaucracies. They acquiesced, hoping that the restrictions would be temporary. Land being fundamental to the nation, the fascist state regimented agriculture even more fully, dictating crops, breaking up farms, and threatening expropriation to enforce its commands.

Banking also came under extraordinary control. As Italy's industrial and banking system sank under the weight of depression and regulation, and as unemployment rose, the government set up public works programs and took control over decisions about building and expanding factories. The government created the Istituto Mobiliare in 1931 to control credit, and the IRI later acquired all shares held by banks in industrial, agricultural, and real estate enterprises."

Foreign Intervention and financial Aid

When considering all the great benefits to the people of foreign lands by our noble do-good attempts to intervene militarily on their behalf with money, weapons, arms and reinforcements, as we are doing in 1000 nations around the world, we will be well served to keep in mind that the United States is borrowing money from the communist and oil producing countries to accomplish this. Soon it won't matter what we want to do or who we want to help. We will be so destitute from our own indebtedness we will be unable to assist ourselves. When China refuses to loan us any more money the gig will be up. The foreign nations around the world will have successfully bankrupted the United States and placed 100 Trillion of debt on us and our children. We are indebting our children's future to save the Georgians and the Iraqis and the Koreans and the Israelis and the Pakistanis and the Japanese and numerous other nations. We are indebting our children to those who are not our friends, to give to other foreign nations that are not necessarily our friends.

We are enslaving our children to debt in a do-good attempt to meddle in the foreign policy of other nations. Our meddling is usually unappreciated and invariably we will get blamed for something and become the target of another radicalized terrorist group that will want to do us harm. Every time we think it is right to interfere with another nation we must remember we are nearly bankrupt. THERE IS NO MORE MONEY IN THE TREASURY. When our destroyers and aircraft carriers can not get fuel or supplies from foreign ports to allow them to return home, because the foreign nations will not extend any more credit, like the did the Russians, we will be in bad shape and very vulnerable. Many nations are beginning to discuss refusing to accept the US dollar. Moodys is discussing downgrading US Treasuries Debt to a "B" Rating. http://www.cnbc.com/i....
This is 3rd World country stuff.

We had better get our guys home from every non-vital military position and shut down all others. We need to take care of the U.S. 1st and rebuild our industries, infrastructure, farms, energy sources and families. We also need to rid ourselves of the un -American foreign national policy advisors - German born Heinz Alfred Kissinger (McCain) and Polish born Zbigniew Brzezinski (Obama). These traitors could care less about the U.S., our troops, our Constitution, our Sovereignty or our children. The foreigners have been running the United States Foreign Policy for the last 30 years and are NOT AMERCIANS. They are also going to run our foreign policy for the next president. They are traitors that serve their un-American masters.

Are we so ignorant as a nation that we can not get one former West Pointer or Naval Academy professor or former General or Admiral out of the 300 million people in this nation to replace these foreign born traitors that are running our foreign policy? These men are hand picked and the American people are getting a good-cop, bad-cop game to two neo-con false choices. The United States will spend its strength and means warring in foreign lands until other nations shall say ‘Let’s divide up the land of the Unites States”
