The Soviet Union was Communist not Socialist.  Europe is Socialist.  Free Market, Free Trade and Trickle down economics are Elitist baloney and do not work.  Free Trade is a huge failure and always runs huge trade deficits, allows unfair trade and unsafe products and creates a race to the bottom on standards of living\labor and environmental standards.  The USA has not run a trade surplus since 1975.  Trickle down economics does not work in a global economy and only creates a have\have not class structure like we have now where the wealth goes to the top 01%  and the rest of the 99% are left behind.  Free market is just an elitist theory to justify massive inequality, keeping the status quo and leaving problems unsolved.  Do you really believe that tax cuts are an effective job creation strategy when employers can send jobs overseas for much cheaper?  Trickle down tax cuts are not a reliable job creation strategy and generally only add to the deficit.  Employers generally do not hire additional staff because of a possible tax cut but rather when they can't keep up with demand and are forced to hire more.  And that is consumer driven.  Do you really believe that Free Market forces (supply and demand levers) will somehow solve problems?  This is absurd as believing in the tooth fairy.

I am sick of idiots promoting trickle down and free market economic theories.  It does not work in a global economy where employers can send jobs overseas with these idiotic Free Trade agreements.   If Trickle down economics works then why did we have an economic meltdown\recession in the 1st place when Bush gave tax cuts\rebates?  It did not stop the recession or meltdown.  And why is unemployment so high when Corporations are at record profits?  After all employing people is part of trickle down economics theory where the wealthy are then supposed to employ people.  And why did trickle down economics and free market leave 50 million to 100 million people uninsured or underinsured for health care insurance?  Why didn't employers voluntarily provide health care to workers as this is in theory part of trickle down compensation?  These idiots blame labor unions for various problems yet how can labor unions be the cause of problems when they make up such a small percentage of the workforce?

The USA is in permanent, irreversible decline.  Our 2 party political system is a joke and is controlled by the Corporations, Lobbyists and the one percenters thru campaign financing.  They represent them and not the citizens.  Our Government keeps using Elitist, idiotic policies like Free Trade, unrestricted Free Market Capitalism, Trickle down economics, Globalization, Deregulation, Illegal Alien Amnesty, Guest worker programs, Foreign worker visa programs and Militarism which is destroying our country.  Our Government is by far more interested in the plight of Illegal aliens than our own citizenry and more interested in rebuilding foreign countries like Iraq and Afghanistan than rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure in the USA and areas devastated by natural disasters.  The USA has high unemployment yet our government wants to grant millions of illegal aliens amnesty and bring in more foreign workers.   They want to involve us in another war in Syria.  The above policies are a failure. 

To Save the USA we need to do the following:

1.  Discontinue Free Trade policies and implement FAIR trade policies with tariffs and Labor and environmental standards in them. This may bring our manufacturing jobs back.
2. Implement  a national workplace verification system using everify and secure our borders and get the illegal aliens to self deport.
3. Take on massive infrastructure rebuilding projects to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure.
4. End our current wars, bring all of our foreign stationed troops home and put them on the border, and use them to secure the border and round up illegal aliens and gang members and respond to natural and man made disasters. 
5. Cut the military by 50% to 75%.
6. Implement a National Health Care system so our companies can compete with foreign companies whose health care costs are subsidized.

If this does not turn around the country with in 5 years then we should just implement Socialism.  At least the basic needs of the citizenry will be met.  Free Market is just an elitist theory to justify keeping the status quo, inequality, leaving problems unsolved and making the 1 percenters wealthier.  Our government is a puppet of the Corporations, Lobbyists and the 1 percenters whose goal is to wreak war and poverty onto the citizenry.  Free Trade is a failure, has not run a surplus since 1975 and has since run massive trade deficits and sent our manufacturing jobs overseas.

The only thing the USA makes anymore is WAR.  The only thing the USA exports anymore is JOBS.  HA HA HA.  What a joke the USA has become.  Nothing is made here anymore.  Our government is by far more interested in the prosperity of foreign countries like China, India, Mexico and Latin America with these lopsided Free trade policies and by far more interested in the plight of illegal aliens than the plight of our citizens.  They are more interested in rebuilding foreign countries like Iraq and Afghanistan than rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure here in the USA.  The USA has high unemployment yet the government wants to grant millions of illegal aliens amnesty and bring in more foreign workers.  They want to involve us in a war with Syria now.  Free Trade is a failure, always runs huge deficits and allows unfair trade and creates a race to the bottom on labor, standard of living and environmental standards.  The USA has not run a trade surplus since 1975.   The USA and its nonsensical Free market, Free Trade, Globalization, Trickle down economics and militarism has destroyed the middle class and our manufacturing base.  At this rate of decline the USA will no longer be a super power within 2 generations.  It may be comparable economically to Canada or Spain.

Nothing is made in the USA anymore and our manufacturing base and middle class has been destroyed.   Idiotic Free Trade policies have send our jobs overseas.  Free trade is a failure and has not run a trade surplus since 1975.  It always runs huge trade deficits, allows unfair trade, unsafe products, and creates a race to the bottom on labor, standard of living, and environmental standards.  Believing Free Market forces will somehow solve problems is as absurd as believing in the tooth fairy.   Trickle down economics does not work in a global economy where employers can send jobs overseas due to unfair trade policies.  It trickles down to low paying jobs.  Free market lever forces have intersected and Trickle down economics has Trickled down.  But the levers have intersected at the graphical coordinates of 1% and 99% where the 1% control all of the wealth and the 99% are left behind.  It trickled down to low paying jobs and all the manufacturing jobs being sent overseas to China, India, Mexico, Asia and Latin America.   Free Market is just an elitist concept to justify keeping the status quo, huge inequality, leaving problems unsolved and doing nothing.   Free Market, Free Trade, Globalization, Trickle down economics and militarism have destroyed our country.

Free Market capitalism is a failure.  It was an illusion that a higher standard of living is attributable to USA Free Market Capitalism.  The end result is that all the wealth goes to the top 1% and 99% get left behind.
 The only reason that the USA even had a middle class  was the coincidental convergence of a number of factors:
1. The rise of organized labor occurred in close historical proximity to the out break of World War II.
2. The out break of World War II mobilized our economy, workforce, and factories for the war effort.
3. The USA won world war II and the homeland was left relatively unscathed with our economy, infrastructure, factories, manufacturing and population in a dominant position.
4. Many of the other developed nations were left devastated by the war with their homelands, economies, infrastructure, populations and manufacturing left in ruins.  Example: Japan, Germany, Italy, France, England, China etc... 

This left the USA with an advantage and in a dominant position in the world economically, militarily and for manufacturing.  This and strong labor unions then allowed the USA to create and maintain somewhat of a middle class for a number of decades (until mid 1970's or 1980).  Then the corporate greed and foreign competition, demise of labor unions, and elitist policies, Free trade, unfair trade, globalization, automation, outsourcing and illegal immigration took its toll and destroyed the middle class and our manufacturing base.

Everybody thinks a millionaire makes you different. You know what you want then, ANOTHER MILLION. It's the same as someone worth 50k wanting 100k.

I dont get it, everyone is obsessed with having a million dollars. I did it, still felt miserable without God.

I don't believe all American women fit that category - there are still attractive, intelligent, self-sufficient American women out there.  Not all American women put money at the top of their list.

The truth is most millionaires aren't rich like millionaires used to be.  I'm a millionaire and live in a above average home, (not extravagant but I built it myself), started my own business, still work, but I was willing to get out of my comfort zone and take a few risks.  The definition of a millionaire is one who's assets exceed their liabilities by more than $1million.  Most of my "million" is equity in my house and business, along with a few investments. I don't have any more spendable cash than most people.  I certainly don't live the lifestyle of the rich and famous, but technically, I'm a millionaire.

Trying to promote American women to chase millionaires?  Do you think American women deserve rich millionaires?  American women are arrogant, cocky, overweight, talk down to men, self absorbed, self centered, selfish.   Any intelligent millionaire would travel overseas to meet women.  Foreign women are younger , prettier, you can get the cream of the crop, less arrogant, they are maintenance free like Honda cars.  If you want to see what western women are like, then feel free to go to your nearest divorce court.  That will be a wake up call for you.
