    Here in Europe we have heard in news (among many other things) that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations can spend freely in federal elections. In general that gives biggest power in politics to those who have most money. This leads to rule of few and rich and democracy itself has failed.

    How I –and many others – see it, that we are afraid that you are heading towards civil war. While rich people get even richer, there is a growing group of those who can´t afford even food. If you have to bury your child only because you couldn´t buy decent food or get her a doctor for a illness which could have been easily cured if you only had money. Or if you lose your whole life savings to doctor and medicine bills, you sooner or later start to feel that something is horribly wrong.
    When people have nothing more to lose, they are ready to desperate actions. Because of “war against terrorism” anyone in U.S. can be arrested and his/hers house searched without warrant it´s enough taht you are a terrorist suspect. U.S. is becoming a police state. Astonishingly, just like John Titor predicted.
    I´m not trolling you nor trying to annoy you. I am sincere, that this is the state you seem to be when looking from here.

    The third world will completely collapse long before the US does. Now, I'm not saying that's not possible. If you've been watching the third world, food riots and instability is a growing concern. But as of right now... the US is still in pretty good shape.

    There's really only one way I even see stability in this country threatened, and it's not on civil war level, but it won't be pretty. I'll just leave it at that.

    The US is too fat and rich to sink into civil war.

    We are a long way from giving up our cell phones and Ipods

    Simo, you might find that USMB is an interesting aperture into US society. Stick around and you might see that impressions from the outside (I'm not in the US either) can be misleading, very misleading.

    I have several favorite humorists. One among said, "the rumors of my death have been greatly exagerated." So it with your perception of the situation.

    First, all this ruling does is change the way in which a message need be worded to be legal. The actual expenditure of monies along with the actual messages was and will be unfettered.

    Second, in the USA, a treasured institution is one that does not actually exist. It is the Marketplace of Ideas. When a message is packaged well enough, it can decieve. The country elected Obama as a moderate, bi-partisan who would govern with a transparent method to expose any corruption.

    Turns out Obama is a dedicated partisan who is a left wing socialist who will do any deal in any backroom to accomplish his concealed agenda. Whodathunkit?

    Because of the Marketplace of Ideas, we are not forced to be subjected to a single message no matter how neatly packaged or how loud and persistant it might be. A pig wearing lipstick will eventually be exposed as a pig. Of course, the lip stick is ruined, but it's the price we pay.

    When enough opposing views are aired, the one or ones that most closely fit the reality will gain popularity. That's how Scott Brown won an election that he had no business even being in.

    What a country!

    We are not heading for civil war. We are heading for the polls.

    Surely a Russian professor would be in the know on the situation?
