    Yes it is. That's not the "objective", per se, but it is absolutely what must happen to float everyone else higher. It already has been happening. Barry was 100% good with that.

    No, it's not. Exxon, to stay with the example (pick another if you like) will only get bigger in the New World Order of Bush 41. To say Obama is on board with 41 and 43 is pretty much a 'duh' moment. You could argue Exxon would then become 'less' American and use a nationalism argument and make the point but not an over economic reduction argument. Use you for example. Your company could end up being bought by, name someone big in your sector, and be LESS American as that corporation expanded globally but, over all, in terms of economic growth, the US economy will continue to ascend.

    Looked at another way, because we have a fiat economy, one where QE and TARP and all of that is now accepted, you can't really even look at our economy as a real thing on the macro level in the first place. It WILL be supported to whatever extent is necessary and in no small part due to the interdependency of other nations who, while you are concerned about their 'elevation' at our expense, are actually dealing with the same thing; losing THEIR identity and autonomy while still growing over all as they, in their turn are a part of the ever growing NWO.

    Capitalism as you understand the term is GONE except on the local level. Too Big To Fail is socio-capitalist and is the order of the day, the backbone of the NWO.

    yeah somewhat ..... progressives on the environmental side still rail against "capitalism" and evil businesses owned by corporations

    There has been a "movement" afoot to level the economic status of the world population for a long time now. The proponents have latched on to various quackery to further progress toward their goals; at one point it was actually the predicted impending ice age, fer crying out loud. The Euro-peons got sucked farther in to this round than we did and put some of the wealth transfer mechanisms in place. Which is funny..or ironic..since my company benefited from a bunch of new business funded by the Carbon Trust. ha ha. Barry wanted to also do that...Al Gore even bet large on that. Sorry Al.
