Lies and Propaganda-we are all Socialists!

By
Real Estate Agent with Metro Brokers Realty Oasis-BrokerIPTV

This week, in 55 BC the Roman statesman Cicero wrote: "The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest we become bankrupt.

"The people must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

Wow- sounds like this guy should run.

So our problems aren't new, it's just a question of having the backbone to face them. Cicero would have only withering scorn for the lies of Socialist A. Obama and Socialist B. McCain.

Hard to believe that over 2000 years ago, the same issues have come to bite our noses. Stealing form one man, to give to another through using governmental bureaucrats is pure and unadulterated theft. Are we the people just stupid, naive or self centered?

History is clear, Rome fell in 476 AD....So the way I see it we have at least our lifetimes to experience fully, the decline of a great self governing concept.

The fact that NAR supported, what is now already (well past 850B) a $2T bailout is enough for me to rescind my membership. Problem is, we are all on the dole.

What say to this Active Rain?

As Krushchev said in the 60's we will become more socialist on our own than Russia taking over. If the Mayan's have it correct we only have about 3 1/2 years to worry.

Our two-party political system failed us many years ago as its primary focus is on either staying in office or getting in office.

Seems the focus should be on what is good for the country.
