First of all this came off the internet, which means is very possibly a HOAX. Secondly even more people DISAGREE too. Most of of the points are simply abhorrent. They would either wreak the US, the world, or both. Whoever this (unnamed and uncited) democrat is either deranged, not living in reality, or a moron. He sounds like a lot Republican, and a really dumb one at that, because even though I have issues with the GOP even I'll admit that most conservative of Republicans wouldn't be so reckless.
1. Pretty obvious that English is the official language, nobody has suggested otherwise. And personally I don't give a rats a** if #2 is in Spanish or Mongolian just as long #1 is in English. I can tell you that as an American living abroad, its helpful that certain things are in English, even though I speak fluent French. And do the French care? Of course not. People get all worked up over NOTHING.
2. Why? is it because Isolationism has worked so well in the past? It was a major facilitator of not one, but 2
World Wars. Its a bit like the GOPs opinion on Reaganomics, if it failed under Reagan (Deficiet), Bush (bigger Deficiet), and Bush Jr (Mega-Deficiet) to keep trying it until it actually works. I would have thought by now that someone might have gotten the message.
3. This is just a brilliant Idea! Put a 100% tariff on all imports. Did it ever occur to this person what the rest of the world would do on our exported products??? Why not just end Trade altogether seems much faster and easier. If we wanted to totally wreck the US economy this would be my recommended course of action. Al Qaeda couldn't do any better.
4. Sounds just like Berlin, EAST BERLIN, back when the Berlin wall was up. If we are going to copy the communists why don't we just suspend the constitution while we are at it, faster that way.
5. Umm, isnt that the system we have now? Social Security tax is taken deducted from payroll. You cannot collect it until 65 years old and have worked a certain number of years unless handicapped or otherwise prevented from working. And if its the handicaps that is your problem, my suggestion: Grow a heart or get a transplant. We a Christian country, and I vagely remember a section about being required to provide care for the ill and infirm.
6. Typical comment of someone not knowing the facts. In fact, Most people on Welfare actually HAVE part or full-time jobs, its just their checks don't pay enough to survive. But if we were actually to pay a living wage like most countries do, you wouldn't have so many people on welfare.
7. Jesus, we all have bigger problems than this. Ban em, dont ban them, this should be handled by the MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA, MLS etc, not the US Government. I couldnt care less as do most people.
8-9. Planning to create mass famine in the world are we? Last I checked most Africans didnt have $140 for a single Bushal. In fact $1 over there was hard enough. When people start to starve, they usually start to fight, which of course creates all sorts of problems. Sounds like a excellant plan to start WWIII. Not to mention that US wheat farmers would go BANKRUPT because nobody would be able to afford to buy it. So it sounds like a plan where everybody loses.
10. Another moronic idea. Most 3rd world countries would collapse immediately as would a few others richer countries such as Israel. Secondly as the US is borrowing Billions from Asia and Saudi Arabia what do you think would happen to us if they just cut us off in response (which they probably would). AikiRooster
