Is America becoming too much of a 'dependent' country?
Wed, September 19, 2012

Mitt Romney said on Wednesday he would do a better job of helping the poor than President Barack Obama as the Republican tried to recover from a secret video that showed him dismissing nearly half the electorate as dependent on government help.

There is no such country as America and no such place.We have North and South America and they are continents.

Slick Willard remains the fruneronntr to get the GOP nomination, but it wasn't the slam dunk it was a month ago. He definitely comes across as plastic and inauthentic so it's no surprise that Huckabee is giving him such a scare, but assuming Huckabee will or already has peaked this week with his snowballing scandals, Willard will be the natural beneficiary of Huckabee defectors. With the predictable implosion of Giuliani upon us and Thompson essentially waving the white flag, conservatives (particularly in McCain-hating Iowa) have nowhere else to go but Willard. Huckabee can still be a huge problem, but the expectations bar for Willard have now been reduced so much for Iowa that even a strong second would give him the momentum to win New Hampshire, followed by Michigan, and then slingshot him into the nomination. The National Review endorsement was most likely well-timed to parallel Willard's comeback.If nominated, he'll make fast work of his Democratic challenger (be it Hillary, Obama, or Edwards), the Mormon controversy quickly going away in the face of a challenge by Hillary or a black man. The bigot vote will effortlessly embrace Willard at the end of the day.

By Romney calling for the death of Big Bird & PBS, he can write off the 47%+. As poorly as Obama did at the debate, Romney's comment on Big Bird countered how well he did. All you hear on the news is that Romney wants to kill Big Bird...

give tianimen square free healthcare and oap, and ceo jobs. bring them here to take senior care hospital beds. Then we can go on tv and call canadian seniors lazy for being homeless.

prag wants to know how to stop inflation besides buying all our clothing from tianimen square ?? how about stop sending money to tianimen square. then theres more money in canada, thus it deflates, not inflates. get it ? no. how about no one pay rent oct 1st. all bidnezes and apartment dwellers tell the lords to go f themselves. then that would actually fix the economy and you zombies wouldnt have cheap slaves to wipe your slop. what a disaster that would be, huh?

Don't blame Harper Johnny M. Direct you ire instead towards the various unions who have, in reality, priced their workers out of the game with their regular demands for more and more money. Or would you rather we restrict the goods to only those made in Canada and then live with the higher costs that would soon follow? Of course, that would then lead to those same unions to threaten strike if they don't get more money in order to keep pace with rising cost of living! And around and around we'd go.

Tell us, how would YOU prevent that from happening?

Well johnny m, american boomys feel guilty about going to nam to kill 'the yellow man'. And canadian boomys hate americans for the same reason. So, theyre all stuck in the 1960s, paying asia our future tax dollars to invade us. They think this will get them to hippy heaven, where john lennon plays gigs at studio54 forever

A culvert broke in Ottawa and no Canadian company can make a replacement, so we went to the USA for a replacement. Now Harper is greenlighting more "investment" in China, making it easier for Canadian companies to move to China.

North America has a serious dependency problem. Where would we be if China decided to not export anything to North America for a year ? Empty shelves, empty stores.

Most call it "the free market", but the result is simple, complete and utter dependence on other nations. Heck we don't even have a eye on energy independence.

All the natural resources humans could ever want to shake a stick at and we're still broke. Both the liberals and the conservatives are masters at selling out our sovereignty from under our feet.
