Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

But I don't change anything. Sometimes you misread, get it wrong, and don't bother to hear what is really being said. And while I still like you as well, it is annoying.
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.
It was a symbol of world usury, backed up by private and public armies.What was "horrible" about the World trade center? Please do explain.
It symbolized the impoverishment of the great masses of humanity in order to create a gilded elite of super-accountants.
we love the material idols on TV and never question the division of labor that ruins our daily lives
So you believe freedom is the natural state of the world and doesn't need to be protected or fought for?
You're certainly not alone in this perception, Independent Thinker, and they felt the same way in Western Europe as well.
This is why Islam will win and freedom will lose.
That's what they said in Europe at one time too! It's like deja vu all over again!
Continue to abort your babies while Muslims continue to have several of them, and in a couple of generations it's all over.
They know that but the majority in the Western democracies don't. This dumbing down of western culture has proved to be fatal.

Others will convince you that your people and society are corrupt and you should change to a better world with a better, more fair, system. Theirs.
Charlatans like Barrack Obama and his handlers convinced the American people to lose their freedoms more than an inch at a time, and most people are finally catching on. Some fools don't, however, and they'll ruin America for everyone.
So if the Muslims don't get you, and they probably will over time, the Socialists will. Either way, America as it once was is screwed, just as is Western Europe.
Grant, what do you honestly think will happen if Muslims somehow became a majority in America? Do you honestly believe Shariah Law will be introduced? Do you think somehow the US Constitution will disappear? That somehow, Muslims will make America an Islamic state?
The only word that accurately describes that is deluded.
