    Which was exactly what the Framers did not want! We were once the envy of the world, and most successful societies followed our example. It appears that irks some people to no end!

    Greetings, Grant.

    We, as a nation, still are the envy of most countries...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Not remotely the same thing. You not owning a lot of houses is not a public health issue.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    As I said, as a comic look at a spot on point. Not as a factual source.

    Nope. I'm pretty main stream. I go with being accurate.

    Hi Polgara!

    So many people throughout the world have admired the freedoms and success of the American people while inexplicably not changing their own systems to something similar. The Constitution and Bill of Rights would suit every people, as has been shown, which makes it doubly amazing that Americans, who should know better, would want to change it,

    Those numbers may be dwindling, and I believe it's a damned shame. Other countries should be emulating America, not America emulating failed socialist countries.
