(Reuters) January 2012 - A collapse of the euro and break-up of the European Union would have catastrophic consequences for the global financial system, billionaire investor George Soros was quoted as saying.
"Today, the euro is potentially endangering the political cohesion of the European Union," the Business Line newspaper cited Soros as saying.
"If the common currency were to break down, it will lead to the break up of the European Union itself. And this will be catastrophic not only for Europe but also for the global financial system."
(Reading between the lines - It would have a catastrophic effect on his global financial manipulations!)
The euro zone crisis is "more serious and more threatening than the crash of 2008," the Economic Times reported, quoting Soros.
In the near term, some of the euro zone countries (but, not me) may have to take more austerity measures because of the imbalances between the "creditor and the debtor countries," Soros said at a business school event.
"Unfortunately, they haven't yet solved the acute financial crisis and that is causing the situation to deteriorate...and it is not at all clear it will have a solution." Soros said.

In these continuing articles it is my intention to explain how both parties, Democrat and Republican, have corrupted our economic system by selling their allegiances to the highest bidders!
Ask the Politically Correct!
What was "Manifest Destiny"?
Politically Correct Resolution:
Manifest Destiny was the 19th century American belief that the United States was destined to expand across the North American continent, from the Atlantic Seaboard to the Pacific Ocean. It was used by Democrats in the 1840s to justify the war with Mexico; the concept was denounced by Whigs (Republicans), and fell into disuse after the mid-19th century.
Advocates of Manifest Destiny believed that expansion was not only wise but that it was readily apparent (manifest) and inexorable (destiny).
The concept of American expansion is much older, but John L. O'Sullivan coined the exact term "Manifest Destiny" in the July/August 1845 issue of the United States Magazine and Democratic Review in an article titled "Annexation." It was primarily used by Democrats to support the expansion plans of the Polk Administration, but the idea of expansion faced opposition from Whigs like Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and Abraham Lincoln (the first Republican President) who wanted to deepen the economy rather than broaden its expanse. John C. Calhoun was a notable Southern Democrat who generally opposed his party on the issue, which fell out of favor by 1860.
Thus, the Civil War where the South wanted to retain there unpaid employees (Slaves) and the North wanted to take advantage of this cheap labor source (New Slavery). Gee! that is same thing they are doing today. Moving jobs overseas to take advantage of cheap labor sources in foreign countries. In addition, the Southern Plantation owners were shipping, mainly Cotton and Tobacco, directly overseas and Northern factions wanted their cut of these actions. During the Civil War there were Northern Suppliers to both the North and South who made fortunes on "Hedging their Investments". What happened after the South Lost? Northern factions moved in and took over the vanquished plantations and many freed? slaves moved north and took low paying manufacturing jobs. Oh! what a coincident! The argument between secession and slavery as the cause for this war still continues.
Manifest Destiny was always a general notion rather than a specific policy. The term combined a belief in expansionism with other popular ideas of the era, including American exceptionalism, Romantic nationalism, and a belief in the natural superiority of people of English descent. While many writers focus primarily upon American expansionism when discussing Manifest Destiny, others see in the term a broader expression of a belief in America's "mission" in the world, which has meant different things to different people over the years. (Although, Manifest Destiny was aimed at Nationalism it was the beginning of it's eventual goal of internationalism).
The belief in an American mission to promote and defend democracy throughout the world (Internationalism), as expounded by Abraham Lincoln and Woodrow Wilson, continues to have an influence on today's American political ideology. (Wikipedia used mostly for this article)

WHEN VOTING FOR THE LESSER OF THE TWO EVILS YOU ARE STILL VOTING FOR EVIL! (LDO)
We Americans travel down three roads: The Left, The Middle, and The Right. Most of us travel on the middle road. Those on the left and right roads play those on the middle road against one another to entice them to join them on their road. Somewhere along these three roads is a crossover bridge (Congress) that connects the left and right roads. Where the left and right meet to plan how to entice those on the middle road to join them on their roads. They decide by throwing a few blades of grass into the air to see which way the wind is blowing. For the previous few years the wind has been blowing to the left. Today, the wind is blowing to the right. If you have notice the wind has never blown toward the middle. I guess if it did, it would create a whirlwind that Congress could not control.
There is no doubt in my mind that we do need a viable third party. One that can't be corrupted by either the left or the right. A party that's Energized for Action!
The original TEA Party was Energized for Action due to taxation without representation by the King of England and his cohorts.
Today we have taxation with representation; but, only for special interests! (both the left and right have made it so)
To change either party from within is an effort of futility. The powers that are will never allow it.
Myself, I refuse to be a (Fellow Traveler) on either the left or the right roads. I will continue down the middle road.
The Coat of Changing Colors! By L. Don Oliver
They wear a Coat of Changing Colors, Depending on which way the winds blow; The politicians keep the people guessing, In hopes that they will never know;
Now they're wearing a Coat of Blue, Soon to be changed to Blue and Red; They will continue bleeding the people, To insure their own bank accounts are fed;
Caring not about the Constitution, Flushing it down their commode; The Federal Courts decide for them, While this nation continues to implode;
They wish upon the peasants, Only an incurable fatal pock; And for this to eventually happen, Requires an eternal "Grid Lock";
Talking heads stand in front of Congress, Spouting their rhetoric and much more, While their co-conspirators spirit, The People's money out the back door;
