Who is this consumer? Well, it's you and me. It can be a bit of the old chicken and egg adage but weather you print the money first or the product comes before the currency makes no difference. You go to work, you produce something of value, you receive monetary compensation for that product. Now you can use that money to make a purchase and someone else gets the money and around and around it goes. I don't give a damn what economic theory or what line of party based crap you spin, this is the reality of capitalism. Try removing this truth from the capitalist system and now what do you have? Nothing. Capitalism does not require any other financial principle or derivative, bond, stock, it needs only the exchange of goods and services for money. That means the consumer is the job creator, the creator of value, and the mechanism on which all non-asset based investment makes a return from. This is the engine of society and the economy. Back to who the consumers are. You and me. Not the FED, not Wall Street. Forget about following party dogma because your elected officials and representatives are not in a fight for you, the job creator, the producer. They are engaged in an ideological war. The battle lines are drawn between our government and the aristocracy but they both are vying for the same position, total control.

P.S. You can't do anything about crazy people. Discussing Aurora is only a display that you are easily guided by the media. Tens of thousands of people including children are living in piles of trash, being raped, trafficked, killed, and starving to death, every fucking day and I don't see any of you so concerned over that.

Well now, I think you've finally got it right - capitalism does not require any specie whatsoever; it is merely a matter of convenience. There are many forms of capitalism, many ways to capitalize, but perhaps the best little trick we've invented for ourselves is the ability to profit from specie directly.

The problem with Americans is that they've forgotten the way, in all respects.

I finally got it right, or you're beginning to see common ground?

I'm not yielding in any way whatsoever... but in reference to common ground, I would never berate anyone, such as yourself, who is sincerely trying to better their situation. That IS the common ground.
