    I know of many cases of people outside the leadership circles of our economy calling for changes in economic policy and who predicted the disasters that eventually rolled out prving them right.

    Here are two: Nigel Farage and Ron Paul.

    Nigel Farage right about the Euro and predicting the end of genuine democracy in Europe if things dont change.

    Here is Ron Paul predicting the housing bubble, the rebuilding of Iraq and Afghanistan and the huge costs associated with both, our economic meltdown and more.

    And yet the opponents of these men, despite being demonstrably wrong over and over, still are in charge. Greenspan had a record of incompetence when it came to economic prognastication and yet he was made Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

    Why are the incompetent put in charge when there are so many more competent AMATEURS around? The amateurs get their knowledge and theories from experts, so why dont we hire them instead of the morons running things now?

    I finally figured it out a few weeks ago; the people who are in charge of things no longer depend on democratic elections, but instead control elections well enough that they can get away with just about anything they like while they distract us with other issues from gay marriage to the war in Afghanistan.

    Take a loo at the map here:

    The banks are in charge, and they MAKE MONEY on economic failure.

    So what are our chances, really, to avoid a huge depression when they guys calling the shots love depressions? In depressions they are the only ones with money and it being in short supply truly makes them 'Masters oif the universe'.

    Our economic crisis is staged by those who plan to profit from it and rule over us against our will as they are presently setting up in the EU.

    Why don't you write a short paragraph explaining just what you think socialism to be and then we can discuss that. From the looks of your post you really don't have a clue. You seem to be arguing from ignorance.

    The Bankers in charge of the worlds economies know exactly what they're doing: Crashing the system so they come in afterward and buy everything up for cheap!

    And they're so smart that they're actually having us PAY FOR IT ALL!

    I predicted it all before Ron Paul did.
    And was ridiculed for my efforts.
    btw we have at least another decade of sluggishness coming at best and likely a couple more drops downward.

    You are charging a nefarious conspiracy. It's silly.

    No conspiracy, It's common knowledge. You say Helicopter Ben isn't printing 100 Billion a month to cover debts?

    Then tell us what what the REAL amount is Toro! :D
