Not really this was all planned, ...

Look at the facts the military budget gets trimmed, ... and a few other things, the committee would have never done anything, ... now it all goes AUTO.

The failure is that ALL poly-tickians ( blood sucking parasites aka 1%-ers ) have been lying to the USA publik for generations.

Now like EUROPE the technocrats have taken over the government and written NEW MOU's that say, if congress does nothing this is what happens.

Not news to me, as a student of history, I happen to know that the usa WAS never A DEMOCRACY.

Right - it was planned. But that such a thing was planned only supports my point about the dysfunction of representative democracy.

I'll repeat the USA was never a representative democracy that is an urban myth,

Constitutionalism Federalism is our government since 1776, government ran and for wealthy old white men.

The 'plan' now is simply to continue the Roman Imperialism New World Order, destroy the dollar and build a new currency that the USA controls.

Funny, I thought the Unites States was created as a Federal Republic with a strong tradition of Democracy.

A republic meaning "a form of government in which the people, or some significant portion of them, have supreme control over the government and where offices of state are elected or chosen by elected people"

Nowhere in there does it say "a small percentage of wealth old white men."

Oh sure, that's what it's become - chiefly because the American people have become complacent - however we still have the power to change the current system for the better. If we sit and do nothing we may very well lose that power all together.

Exactly, VT. And, further to golum's point, the systematic extension of voting (Jacksonian extension to the middle class, Lincoln's to African-Americans, popular election of Senators, the suffragette movement to women) shows we can indeed improve our form of government - by making it, I would argue, more directly democratic.
