The United States has an economic system that can be favorably compared to Attila the Hun. Death and destruction everywhere. The military invades innocent countries and butcher their people and the politicians protect those who engage in fraud, while at the same time receiving “political contributions” to justify them looking the other way.
Every day, when you wake up in the morning, you can bet that somewhere in the financial centers of this country, your "friendly" capitalist is trying to invent a new scam to separate you from your money.
The Enron scam, the Savings and Loans scam, the Housing Bubble scam. It never ends.
Bernard Madoff engineered his 50 billion dollar Ponzi scheme, and the trusting suckers in the U.S.A. came out out of the woodwork and flocked to him proclaiming: “This guy is a genius! Look at the returns that I am getting on my “investments.” They never saw their money again.
Now, Texas billionaire Allen Stanford is being accused of creating an eight billion dollar scam. Yes, the suckers flocked to him too. They too will never see their money again.
As long as Americans foolishly continue to believe that capitalism is the best system in the world, when in fact it is a huge “People Screwing People” enterprise, these schemes will continue.
If you do not have enough money to buy health insurance these paragons of capitalist virtue will say “Die, you dog.”
In China, which has an open-market Communist economic system, when they discover one of these scams, which are so prevalent in the U.S.A., they take the perpetrator to a field, have him kneel and proceed to apply a quick pistol shot to the back of the head.
That is what the capitalist scam promoters here in the U.S.A. deserve too.
