    People should read up on the shameful history of Haiti. It has been intentionally kept impoverished for western interests. When Haiti eliminated slavery France demanded that they compensate France for its economic loss, which kept the country heavily in debt for decades. The USA overthrew and kidnapped their elected president. The IMF has imposed all sorts of harmful policies on Haiti, as it has done to many other poor nations.

    Haitians should establsh policy for the country not outsiders with a vested interest in exploiting the nation's impoverished condition.

    Whose says we arent ran by corporations? This is more proof that corporations dominate our politics not only at home but overseas. Welcome to America [/FONT][/COLOR]
    I don't think there are many people who argue that corporations run D.C. It's just split between people who dislike them and people who are glad to be ruled by them.

    Heres the thing. You want higher wsges to make ppls lives better. As if that higher wage doesnt come with a cost. It does. You dont care if someone "rich" is harmed as long as the little guy gets what hes owed! That is very short sighted, and causes serious problems for everyone.

    It's a sad situation down there in Haiti. I've been down there, and that was 20 years ago. It was poor then. I have Haitian neighbors.

    Yes because keeping wages as low as possible and keeping people in miserable poverty so a few rich people can get more profits is such a good thing for humanity. It says a lot about our government when they actively support these policis.

    That's not what's going on, which is why you and people liek you fail, why your ideas when tried on a large scale produce true misery and disparity.


    Stop with the class warfare ****, it's old. It's not rich people enslaving poor people LOL haha look us were rich and you'll always be poor!!! I can't stand that simpleton outlook on life.
