I think that a lot of these arguments between us would be moot, if everyone were to realize that this country's debt and our monetary and socioeconomic system has absolutely nothing to do with which president is in office. The president has absolutely no control over the Federal reserve, the people that own it/run it, the money they have, the corporations they own, the wars that are fought, the countries that are exploited for their resources, the private contracts and loans that are negotiated with foreign countries, and the list goes on forever. It's time that people realize that believing our president has anything to do with the price of gas or which countries we declare war on, is about as big a fairy tale as believing that a magazine ban will stiffle crime. After everything we've seen happen so far, as accessible as info is on the internet, as many documentaries that have been made, as much as has been exposed and explained to us, and we still live in this little romantic bubble that our president is the leader of the free world and decides what we pay for goods and services and how to use our military and what laws are passed? Really? You guys are breakin' my heart here.
And the notion that "polls" taken in other countries about how "likeable" our president is, are representative of how well we are doing or in any way, shape or form are indicative of how well we are governed,......is nothing short of ludicrous. First of all, who did they ask? Did they ask the civilians on the streets of Venezuela or Iraq or Bolivia? It's a joke. You might as well start a poll about what oil England thinks we should use in our Tundras, or who their favorite American actor is, for all the credibility a "likeability" poll has.
But, again, I digress. I could flood this thread with visual proof, testimonies, factual, scientific, objective, undeniable evidence that our gov, it's leaders, it's policies and even it's military are all dictated by the multi-national and multi billion/trillion$ corporations and no one would give it a second thought.
