We’ve got a real problem, and I’m tired of Republicans and Democrats, who either — Republicans who want to burn the place to the ground, or Democrats — with all due respect — who wanna offer a plan that gets (their party) through the end of the second term of their presidency, and then screws me and my kids when it’s over!
…We have to deal with the extraction that is afoot. It is the reason the financial markets are behaving the way they’re behaving — that is a mathematical fact! This is not some opinion! This is a mathematical fact: tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America! Democrats aren’t doing it; Republicans aren’t doing it. An entire, integrated financial system, trading system, taxing system, that was created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on an entire country right now! And we’re sitting here, arguing about whether we should do the $4 trillion plan that kicks the can down the road for the President (until) 2017, or burn the place to the ground — BOTH of which are reckless and irresponsible and stupid.
…The fact of the matter is that there is a refusal on both the Democratic and the Republican side of the aisle to acknowledge the mathematical problem: that the United States of America is being extracted (from). It’s being extracted through banking, it’s being extracted through trade, and it’s being extracted through taxation. And there’s not a single politician who has stepped forward… to deal with this.
I would like (President Obama) to go to the people of the United States of America and say “People of the Unites States of America: your Congress is bought. Your Congress is incapable of making legislation on healthcare, banking, trade or taxes because if they do it, they will lose their political funding, and they won’t do it. But I’m the President of the United States, and I won’t have a country that is run by a bought Congress!”
Perhaps this is the rallying cry for the Donner Party.
