The economy in the United States is in a collapse.  The Capitalist system does not work anymore; banks have become more powerful than our politicians.  The government now has a policy based around Fear and Greed.  The rich are getting richer and more powerful, while the great masses of America wallow in poverty.

Must we continue to exist in this passive state, only living to serve the rich and powerful?  Or do we, the great masses, stand up against the policies Fear, and Greed, and God?  We must break the bonds that separate us, we must pull down the centers of Greed and Fear and we must pull down the houses of God.  These borders are created to separate us into individuals where we can be controlled easier.

We must stand up, against the tyranny of the centers of Greed, and Fear, and God.  Quoting John Adams:  "People should not fear government, government should fear people."  Once we stand up to Fear, to Greed, to God, we will become united!

This being said, I advocate the collapse of the Capitalist system and the foundation of the United Socialist Federal Republic, in which the government will exist to serve the people.  Capitalism is Dead.  We must put it out of it's misery and move on toward Socialism.

Impressive, Malcolm. Not often I find that lay people understand what happened and is happening in the economy (if I hear one more person complain about the handling of the recession by saying "you can't spend yourself out of debt", I will scream).

I'd add one more reason to your list to explain the slow, jobless recovery: employers have been getting equal productivity out of less employees and are also hesitant to add to payrolls until confidence in the recovery is higher. Plus, keeping payroll down is an effective way of boosting short term stock which keeps shareholders happy.
I think the current system sucks all kind of ass, myself. However, I also don't think the current system is true capitalism. If it were, nothing would be illegal. As it stands drugs, prostitution, certain kinds of pornography, etc. are not legal. Yet all of those things are thriving black markets. If true, unfettered capitalism were allowed to flourish, then we might be living in a very different country. There again, with an unadulterated form of capitalism, regulation would not occur, so there goes your protections for both the seller and the buyer. All I know is that if the answer were as simple as instituting one form of government, then it would already have been done by now.
The only reason the things you listed are illegal is because its more profitable that way. Thriving black markets don't have to consider health and safety, insurance or any other government imposed rules, so they become much more profitable than their counterparts.Do you seriously think that you live under anything but capitalism?
I stand by my assessment. What I see in this country is that the smallest group of the richest people are held up by the largest group of the poorest people. That's not capitalism, that's the ultimate pyramid scheme. The United States of America is absolutely, unequivocally NOT a purely capitalist country. In a capitalist system, there is no such thing as bank bail out, a Wall Street bail out, too big to fail, corporate welfare, food stamps, public housing... in short, there is no government assistance to anybody - period. As soon as you enter regulation, safeguards, laws, or assistance of any kind to any person into the picture, then you are not practicing capitalism, because any form of help is socialist in nature. When poor people get food stamps or housing assistance, they didn't earn those by freely buying and selling. When rich people find tax loopholes to climb through or avoid penalties by cooking the books, they didn't earn those by freely buying or selling either. But in this country, socialism is a dirty word, so we do socialist things all the time and we just call ourselves capitalists. I don't have to be for or against capitalism or for or against socialism to make these assessments, I just have to call it as I see it. And as I see it - the very poor and the very rich live more under aspects of socialism than they do capitalism.
The United States of America is absolutely, unequivocally NOT a purely capitalist country. In a capitalist system

I think most, if not all, people can and would agree that this is the case. "Purely" being the operative word.
I have been very interested in a different alternative for some time now. The alternative of a Resource Based Economy as advocated by the Zeitgeist Movement.
The reason this appeals to me is because it eliminates the need for power and money. It focuses on human well being both mental and physical. This means no religion and all mental problems such as self esteem issues which lead to the desire for power would be eliminated.
Of course the only way this could work is government through Artificial Intelligence.
At least at first anyway.
Since every other way we try, including socialism seems to end up being controlled by the corrupt and power hungry, taking control away from humanity and handing it over to logical incorruptible artificial intelligence seems like the answer. It certainly could not be any worse than what we have now.

I know .. We've all seen Terminator. But could that be any worse than George Bush?
Lets look at this so called Gods Country, and how Gods people work.
First The Christians came over with missionaries and tried to convert the American Indian.......and teach him how to farm , so they could enslave him . The American Indian respected the earth and knew nothing about greed.......but them Christians did . Since the Indians didn't want to live like the Christians they drove them out , killed many , beat , tortured . Then they brought in the slaves from across they ocean , I guess those God dam lazy Christians just didn't want to do the work and God said my people don't need to ......get slaves .
Today Gods country is all for having free trade with countries like China , That beat and torture people in sweat shops and kill people in cold blood who protest for a democracy . I wonder why they are not Christians ? Its also alright to let illegals in .We need new slaves ! The Catholic church gives them maps and sets up water towers for them in the desert .Why? Because everyone knows that 90% of all Hispanics are Catholic and right now the church could use the money !
You have television pastors living in multi -million dollar homes while the givers are loosing their homes . Benny Hinn (T.B.N CHRISTIAN BROADCASTING FAME ) LIVES IN A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR HOME AND WEARS $2000 SUITS . YOU CAN FIND THIS ON YOU-TUBE .
Religion , the biggest crock of shit we have ever been sold ...quick someone call RALPH NADAR and report this .
I also have it on reliable authority that the Vatican lent its support to Hashim Thaci of the KLA, who was one of those at the apex of the global black market organ harvesting trade. But this is info you won't get from YouTube. This is info you get from doggedly researching things the hard way, and making a full-time of it.
This was so well said that you may be my new hero.
That was very well said. I thank you for your blunt honesty; my pride is stinging right now, but I thank you.

I proposed this idea, of The United Socialist Federal Republic, as possible idea to change the government, a government that will work. The only problem is that this world has not had a Socialist society that has succeeded, all attempts at socialism have failed and turned into a fascist communist state. Also the fact of American Capitalism propaganda against Socialism has brain-washed the American people that believing in anything other than Capitalism is treason against America.

The United Socialist Federal Republic is the overall dream and idea for a government that will work, and will serve the people.

The Capitalist Government we have now, is corrupt. There is no way around that, we can all see it. The thing that I get upset about is that we can see this corruption happening and no one does anything about it. We sweep it under the rug saying that is the nature of humanity, or this is how Economics work, or corruption is not as bad as you think.

So I proposed the idea, the formation of a government that serves the people. What was the general response? NO! I defended my ideas, I pointed out situations, I answered every question to the best of my intellectual ability. And the answer? NO!

Now we are at a cross roads. One path is toward Socialism and the other is toward Capitalism. The road toward Capitalism is filled with corruption and Greed. It has the government ruling over the people. It has the rich and powerful pulling the strings. It has a caste system. It has ridged classes that are near impossible to get out of. Fear is used to control. God is used to pull individuals even farther apart.

Socialism has a government working for the people. It has the people working with each other. It has no class, everything for everyone. There is no one above you and no one below you. A Socialist society is free of the corruption of Greed, of Fear, of God. Everyone is equal.

Everyone has a home; not like in the Capitalist society where: On a given night, an estimated 672,000 people experience homelessne...
Everyone has a Job; in the Capitalist Society: On February 12, 2009, reported that the current unemp...
Everyone has Heath Insurance, but in the Capitalist Society:" target="_blank">44.8 million: Number of Americans without health ...
So here we are. What path do we take from here? Well someone has to take the first step and I am taking the first step toward Socialism. No matter how many years it takes, or how many generations. We will eventually reach Socialism.
Now we are at a crossroads? We are always at a crossroads. I'm just a laymen here so forgive me if I come across as ignorant, but I think that our type of government pretty much keeps us at that crossroads. Sure, our economic system will sometimes swing towards a more capitalistic nature while at other times more socialistic. But to predict that now, of all times, is the penultimate and deciding moment seems like a conceited conclusion.
I am not conceited.

I care for my country deeply, and I want it to have a better government than it has now.

I feel that this moment, this age live in right now, is the deciding moment. We cannot let this moment pass us by. The time is now! Have to act!
