My Own Bribe

"The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money."

- Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America


Does that quote make you think differently about your rebate check?

Do you think it is odd that if you bribe congress with your money you would go to jail, yet they can bribe you with your own money and it gets them re-elected.

Make no mistake it is your money...they have only one way to earn money...you...

Actually, my even bigger concern is that it's my children's money, and quite possibly their children's. It's an economic nightmare right now.

The rebate check is a joke. Until we take the money out of the political system we will forever suffer the consequences.

Rocket: What no comment on the French author? lol...I just finished that book it was great.

Savy: Tell me about about it. There are only two ways to fix it. Raise taxes, or cut spending and it looks like the entire burden to fix this country will fall on the shoulders of the next generation and it makes me sick. People get really tired of my political rants but I wish I could wake up this sleeping giant called the public...

The economy is ridiculous right now....As a trader, I can't figure out what the hell is gonna happen from day to day. It's stupid.

Brian, it's almost impossible to wake sheep. We live in a country of sheep.
