    When Thomas Jefferson wrote The Declaration of Independence to The Crown, I have long believed that our current Government is The Crown that our forefather's declared independence from.

    I hope the Government and Financial System fails.

    Again, you prove impotent to back up your claims. No surprise there. You never presented what you claim you presented in the first place. Be it a year ago, a month ago, a week ago or today. But go ahead and prove me wrong by showing us all this tremendous factual evidence you have. We would love to see it.

    Who would that be? YOu must be talking about some foreign culture because America sounds nothing like what you are fantasizing about.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a thunderstorm versus hurricane but that works too
