Nov/10/2011 elections show that USA is NO Democracy
November 2010 elections resulted in Republicans winning the House and winning more seats in the Senate. And this happened according to the US Media because people were angry by the tough economic conditions in US, as exemplified by the high unemployment rate of 9.5%, although the real unemployment rates are actually closer to 20%! And due to HUGE Deficits in US.

But this is ABSOLUTE COMPLETE non-sense since the high unemployment rates in US and the HUGE Deficits of US Government are due to the policies of the Republicans and the right-wingers. After all look at the countries that have near FULL EMPLOYMENT, such as Germany, Japan, Australia, etc. or countries that have HUGE surpluses such as China and you will see that these countries have policies that are 100% opposite of Republicans, such as they ALL have Universal Nationalized Health Care, do not waste their Taxes on unnecessary Wars or on a Gargantuan Military.

So the only explanation for Republicans having won BIG in Nov/10 elections are:

1- A conspiracy by the right-wing Kabal that is behind Republicans to have rigged the Voting machines and otherwise done what fraud is necessary to manipulate the Voting results to show Republicans winning.

2- That Majority of Americans have been brain washed by the lies and lies of the right-wing Media, which is 98% of US Media, to not know what the FACTS are, and thus Vote for Republicans whom are the reason behind the high unemployment rates and HUGE Deficits in US.

This article is not about addressing how easily the Voting machines could have been rigged, since a good Conspiracy by definition is not possible to be proved, certainly not in an article that is based on FACTS. However you can read an article related to this possibility about the mysterious way how Jim Demint of South Carolina ended up running without any real opposition here, thus ensuring that he would be elected as Republican Senator of South Carolina.

So this article will prove the 2nd "explanation" based on FACTS of comparing US high unemployment rates with countries that have near FULL Employment and US huge deficits with countries that have HUGE surpluses.

So US economy is doing badly AND will continue to do BADLY due to some fundamental problems, which fundamental problems Republican champion, again Republicans champion these problems, proving what lunatics, what enemy of American people they are, AND which fundamental problems Obama/Dems DID NOT AT ALL address, either because they are in fact just as right-wing as Republicans are and they are really a Hoax, or because of the power of the right-wing Kabal from "Filibuster" to Blue Dog Democrats to the right-wing Media they control to fake ThinkTanks they have created, etc blocked or gravely watered down any attempt of the Obama/Dems to address these fundamental problems, which fundamental problems in summary are:

1- Lack of essential Social services such as universal nationalized health care (aka NHS), something that EVERY European, in fact EVERY developed Nation has, as a result of which while ALL their citizens have health care they spend about HALF as much on health care, WHILE in USA with no NHS and 50Mill+ without health care, health care is taking a DEFICIT BUSTING 18% of GDP.

2- Our money (Taxes) wasted on one unnecessary War after another - Iraq War, Afghan War, etc.

3- Our Taxes wasted on a Gargantuan Military - such as 200,000+ troops in Europe at cost of at least $100Bill per Year.

4- 98%+ of US Media being a (aka right-wing lying machine), engaging in non-STOP LIES, fear-mongering and war-mongering to ensure that the above problems are not addressed.

About HIGH unemployment rates in US

Lets look at countries that have LOW unemployment to effectively FULL employment. What these countries are doing and are NOT doing compared to US then should tell us what we need to do to have FULL employment.

So Germany has near full employment at 6.0%, Japan has near Full employment at 5.2%, Australia has near Full employment at 5.3%, China has near Full employment at 4.2%, here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_unemployment_rate

vs real unemployment in US at 20%, or Government reported unemployment in US at 9.85%, So what are they doing different in these countries compared to US?

1- They have universal nationalized (socialized) health care
2- They have MUCH MORE generous unemployment benefits than in US. OTN in typical European country unemployment benefits are at about 75% of your prior salary, whereas in US unemployment benefits are at the astonishingly nothing level of about 15% of your prior salary (1).
3- They have MUCH higher taxes on someone making more than 1Mill than in US.
4- They have MUCH more extensive regulation and a FAR more unionized workforce than the US.
5- Their workers by law get 8 Weeks paid vacation per year, compared to a measly 1 or 2 weeks in US if that.
7- They have Universal child care.
8- They have Universal Education, which meas you can go up to your PhD pretty much for FREE. Contrast this to US where getting a BS degree can cost you an astonishingly INSANE amount of $100,000 AND MORE, putting your or your family in debt for years to come, EVEN if you get a good Job, and GOD help you if you dont get a good Job.
9- They have by law avg of 52 Weeks of Paid leave for woman who gives birth at FULL pay vs NO such law in USA at all! To be exact Californian and NJ have a paid leave law for mothers who just give birth, but for only a pathetic short time of 6 weeks and at half of the pay. And in many European countries even the Father gets about 6 months of Paid leave at full pay for having a child.
etc. etc.

ALL of which policies Republicans and the right-wing Media in US call "Socialism.." and oppose, proving beyond a shadow of doubt as to what lunatics, what real ENEMY of American people, they are.

Now when you look at the above HORRENDOUS lack of Government provided services in USA vs European countries, and in fact all developed nations, just think about this FACT, that only USA and some of the poorest failed states in the World such as Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, etc. do not have something as basic and necessary for the well being of the Nation as Universal nationalized health care or Paid Leave at full pay for mothers, etc.

So the Full employment results in these countries with universal nationalized health care and many other Social services that Americans do not have, proves beyond a shadow of doubt that Republican ideals, that is LIES for the benefit of the Big pharma, Big insurance (aka Wall Street gang), and the right-wing Media that enables them, such as Talkradio, Fox news, Wall Street Journal, etc. are EXACTLY the "Job Killing ideas...", are EXACTLY the reasons behind the HIGH unemployment rates in US.


HUGE Deficits in US vs HUGE surpluses in China

Another reason that the (right-wing) US Media gave for why people supposedly Voted Republicans is because they are worried about the HUGE Deficits in US. WOW!

But this is total non-sense since it is the Republicans and right-wingers policies, which again Obama/Dems barely addressed because Republicans blocked everything via "FiliBuster", that are behind the HUGE DEFICITS in US. To see this as being FACT, take a look at a country that has HUGE surpluses rather than HUGE DEFICITS, that is China. So what is China doing different than US that has given it a HUGE surplus vs US having HUGE deficits?

First of all, China is a Communist Capitalist country with the Government controlling and funding many industries, for example in China all the major Banks are Nationalized (aka Government owned), all the major energy companies are Nationalized (aka Government owned), etc. Now contrast this to the Republican's position since that buffoon Reagan that "Government is the problem not the solution...", "Government does not create Jobs..", etc. and here you have China and the Chinese Government is creating and running at least HALF the companies and thus Jobs in China as a result of which China has HUGE surpluses and a rapidly growing economy and thus Middle class.

Moreover, these difference between US and China polices apply:

1- China does not have a Gargantuan Military budget. To be exact 1st China's Military budget is like a MERE 5% of the US Military budget and even MORE IMPORTANT what Military budget China has is all spent inside China whereas most of the US Military budget is spend in the bases that US has in 128+ countries.

2- China is not engaged in (unnecessary) Wars 10,000 Miles from its borders as US is engaged in 2 Wars in middle east, for an astonishing 8 years and counting, in fact never ending Wars. Just imagine if China was engaged in 2 Wars in Central America, which is equivalent to US being engaged in 2 Wars in middle east, and as the result it had spent $2Trillon+ of its People money on these Wars, where do you think the Chinese surplus would be then? Of course it would have disappeared and it would have had a HUGE DEFICIT instead, as US has.

3- China has Universal Nationalized Health Care. Just like all European countries, Canada, Japan, Australia, Israel, etc. have Universal Nationalized Health Care. This means that Chinese businesses and people pay a small fraction of what American people and businesses (and ultimately the Government) pay for health care.

So as you see as per the example of China having HUGE surpluses, it is absolutely insane to say that Republicans (aka TEA baggers) are worried about HUGE deficits in US because it is the Republican and right-wingers ideas (aka policies) that are EXACTLY behind the HUGE deficits in US since China that has HUGE surpluses has policies that are completely opposite of Republican and right-wingers in US.

More on why China is having a HUGE surplus whereas US is having a HUGE deficit here.

Republicans position on health care is ABSOLUTE proof that they are total LYING machine

So Republicans claim that they are worried about the Deficits is a total LIE as per above points and is further proven to be an ABSOLUTE LIE, a total Con Job, by Republicans opposition to Universal Nationalized Health Care.

To be exact If Republicans and the (right-wing LYING) US Media that controls them actually cared about the ballooning US deficits THEN they would be for Universal Nationalized Health Care as they have in all European countries, Canada, etc. because in all the countries that have Universal Nationalized Socialized Health Care, health care on average is taking about 9% of GDP whereas in US where 50Mill have NO health care, 2Mill go bankrupt each year due to health care costs and at least 50,000 are KILLED each year due to being denied health care, health care is taking a DEFICIT BUSTING 18% of GDP, here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_in_Canada

So if Republicans and Republicrats (that is Democrats in name only), actually gave a SQUAT about the ballooning US deficits then they would be for Universal Nationalized Health Care and that is why Margaret Thacher's Conservative party in UK, Angela Mekels Conservative party in Germany, Sarkozy's Conservative party in France, Stephen Harper's Conservative party in Canada, etc. ALL are 100% for their Universal Nationalized Health Care. Because a real Conservative, would be for SAVING money while getting the Job done, which is what Universal Nationalized Health Care does in regard to the health care costs of the country which is one of its most important costs and investments.

So this means by switching to Universal Nationalized Health Care, as they have in ALL European countries, Canada, etc. we would SAVE the US Government (Tax payers) $1.2T per year, while ALL Americans would have health care. How? Details here.

How is it possible for so many Americans to have become so brain dead?

So given the FACTS, as detailed above, that it is EXACTLY because of the ideas/policies of Republicans and the right-wingers in US that US economy is doing so badly and US is having such HUGE deficits, THEN how is it possible that so many Americans would be so brain dead to Vote for the Republicans?

The answer is that 98% of US Media is a right-wing LYING machine, lying and lying and lying and brain washing the most uneducated in America (aka "White Trash") to not think of the the above FACTS and instead Vote for those who profit from the above fundamental problems of US economy and Vote against their own self interest.

Of course now a days such Media sources as RealNewsPost.com Web site, Mediamattergs.org or Huffingtonpost.com, etc. web sites also exist to debunk the lies of the right-wing Media, but the reach of these Web sites is still minuscule compared to TV, Radio, etc. Big media outlets.

More on what a right-wing LYING machine most of US Media is here.




Footnotes:

(1) Unemployment benefits in typical European country are at about 75% of your prior salary, whereas in US unemployment benefits are at the astonishingly nothing level of about 15% of your prior salary, given that unemployment benefits in most US states are up to maximum of $450 per week. Here:

(2) Koch Brothers: How a right-wing Kabal has hijacked the US Government

(3) Republican will say any Lunatic lies to get away with their Con Job on American people.

(4) A sampling of the countries that have much higher Taxes than US and MUCH LOWER Unemployment:
http://www.cnbc.com/id/42192653?slide=1
thus an irrefutable proof that IF you want Lower Unemployment rates and Higher prosperity for the Main Street rather than Wall Street then you Tax the Rich more, as these countries are, and have MUCH MORE generous Social Services as these countries have that have MUCH LOWER continuous real Unemployment than US.

Hmm...with all the bad economic news, social unrest and failing economies' news coming from Europe, this board has been pretty quiet. EU GDP is said to be 0.2%....and there are more developments coming, more bad news, more countries on the verge of default.
Perhaps they need to increase entitlement spending to help their economies? Oh, wait, that never works.....The private sector generates wealth creation, the public sector consumes it...so by all means, lets increase taxes so our govt can continue to suck up resources from the private sector, thereby sending us into a depression. (If it's not too late already)

By Guest:   FoxedNewsMan 2011-07-12

why don't you move back to Greece with the rest of the socialist pig, handout- needing, whiny babies. Oh wait...they spent all their money on entitlements and are now bankrupt and have no choice but to enact austerity measures. Good plan on the handouts...why don't you take your a$$ and be useful by getting an education, getting a job, and becoming self-reliant like a true American. Loser!

By Member: Real_News 2011-07-12

FoxedNewsMan, whenever you Republicans open your mouth you further prove what utter complete lunatics you are. So keep up the psycho talk to prove to the whole World what nut job you people are.

To be exact I mentioned Germany, etc. who 1st have even MORE "Socialized" services than Greece and whom 2nd have MUCH LOWER Unemployment than US and much lower debt than US.

And now I will further prove what psycho you people are by asking you a question, since by answering it or not answering it you will prove what brain deead lunatic psychos you people are, to be exact:

How what I described or having for example UNiversal Natiolized health care are socialist while Government telling us you cannot go over 65 Miles per Hour or having a Military, Fire dept, etc. that are Gopvernment run operations not socialist?

Go ahead answer that and prove to all further what psychos you Republicans are.


By Guest:   Carlos 2011-06-02

It's hilarious that you think the problem with the United States is not enough government spending and handouts. These are completely the very core of our problems and to keep on spending more is the same thing as smoking does to lung cancer. Thinking the government is the answer to our problems instead of the cause of our problems, is lethal.

By Member: Real_News 2011-06-02

Can't you Republican psychos read?
or are you too brain dead to grasp FACTs anymore?

For in this article I have pointed you to countries that have near FULL Employment and MUCH Lower deficits to surpluses compared to US and then listed what they do different than US. And what they do different is that their Government are a KEY part of the solution toward their better economies. Such as:

1- They have universal nationalized (socialized) health care
2- They have MUCH MORE generous unemployment benefits
3- They have MUCH higher taxes on someone making more than 1Mill than in US.
4- They have MUCH more extensive regulation and a FAR more unionized workforce than the US.
5- Their workers by law get 8 Weeks paid vacation per year, compared to a measly 1 or 2 weeks in US if that.
7- They have Universal child care.
8- They have Universal Education, which meas you can go up to your PhD pretty much for FREE.

etc. Government provided/regulated benefits.

Wake up to the Con Job of that Republicans have been playing on us since that buffoon Regan said:
"Government is the problem not the solution..."

The purpose of which Con Job was/is:
1- To give American (middle class) people as little as possible for the Taxes that we pay,
2- To enable the Wall Street Gang and their Agents to get as rich as they can off the back of American middle class by NOT HAVING the Government (of the People by the People for the People) regulate what Big corporations can charge the People.
3- To have the Rich not pay more Taxes, as they do in Northern European countries and lets remind as a result of which they have MUCH BETTER economies and societies that US.

"The unemployment rate in Germany was last reported at 7.60 percent in March of 2011. From 1991 until 2010, Germany's Unemployment Rate averaged 9.73 percent reaching an historical high of 12.10 percent in March of 2005 and a record low of 7.30 percent in December of 1991. The labour force is defined as the number of people employed plus the number unemployed but seeking work. The nonlabour force includes those who are not looking for work, those who are institutionalised and those serving in the military. This page includes: Germany Unemployment Rate chart, historical data and news."
Seems that the author likes to use/play with data. The real unemployment rates (as reported by Germany) do not really support his arguments. I never accept blindly numbers people throw at me, I always seek independant sources to confirm or deny such claims. The problem with most people is they do not. They will accept data that supports their preconceived notions.

1st, thank you for this article, it really opened my eyes up..
2nd, have you seen this new documentary about how the Koch brothers have truly hijacked the US Government by creating all these fake TinkThanks, from Hoover institute in Stanford Univ to American for prosperity to etc.:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/may/15/koch-brothers-leftwing-film-maker


By Guest:   Bruce 2011-05-17

not stupid? what do you call blindly accepting data presented as fact without doing any fact checking? do you only accept data that supports your political views? The actual facts tend to point towards issues with both parties, neither being true to their stated belief system. There was no way the powers that be didnt see the credit crash, and yet no one did anything to stop/prevent it, nor did they even alert people to the problems ahead of time.

By Guest:   EuroMax 2011-04-08

I agree. There is NO way that American people, or anyone sane would Vote Republicans given that their policies have been proven to be totally wrong putting it nicely, or lunatics as you put it here in this article, as proven by the Chinese having huge surpluses and fast growing economies and China being the ultimate example of Big Government ensuring economic growth since China operates many more industries beside Health care on Socialized basis. It is wake up time people.

By Guest:   Bruce 2011-05-17

This is just ignorance in motion....Chinese surpluses are due to many factors, major and foremost being the fact that they manufacture the lion share of the world's goods and export those. That is called a positive trade imbalance, which enriches any country (such as the US during the 60s) who can maintain such a balance. The US has experienced a negative trade imbalance for the last 20 years, during Repub and Dem controls of govt. We have imported more than exported, during that time, over 15 trillion dollars. In other words, we have spent, as a nation, 15 trillion dollars more than we made as income...not a good balance sheet. Thats the bottom line, bud...check it out and stop the ignorance.

By Guest:   Konnekt_de_dots 2011-04-07

So Republican lying machines, such as Ryan, Bohner, Cantor, McConnel, Palin, Rush, Wall Street Journal, Fixed news, etc. say that "We are broke" YET they, their bosses like this Jim Dimon get $20Mill per year + fly in $50Mill private Jets plus many 10s of Millions of Dollars in perks that you do not even hear about since they are marked as Corporate expenses such as Multi Million Dollar corporate Apartments in NYC, London and many other exotic locations WHILE at the same time Republican lunatics tell us "We are broke" and they want to cut the paltry salary of the Teachers, Nurses, Fireman, etc. Union workers whom on average make a modest $48,000 per year. WHILE at the same time they also instantly approve $200Bill for Afghan War, Billions for Israel & $1-Trillion for the most Gargantuan Military in the World!

Come on people, WAKE UP to the Con Job that the Republican lunatics are playing on you.

By Guest:   Bruce 2011-05-17

and dont forget that 7 of the top 10 richest people in the fed govt are democrats. If you ignore that fact, than you are nothing more than a kool aid drinking fool unable to understand what is happening. Look into how much Pelosi gets/got for perks...if you dont complain about that, then again you are nothing more than a kool aid drinking fool. ALL the politicians are sucking us dry, and blaming it on a single party is just stupidity.
