I'm having problems posting on GM-Volt.com so I decided to post this in response to a comment made early in the day.

Here's my thoughts on your comment X. America is transparent and economically speaking perhaps more realistic than other nations. We have to be, If we were to fail the world would be in sad shape. Europe, Japan, and really even modern China (economically) are based on the capitalist system we made popular. We can't fail, which is why the thought of cutting an organisation, the EPA is a possibility, it doesn't sustain itself financially.
If you look at the External Debt of the U.S. vs the debt of European countries or say Japans which is enormous we look pretty good. Of course China has a budget surplus, but that'd be easy to do when you underpay your citizens and export like crazy. I think that's important for people here to remember in our country, If things get bad enough we as the voters will demand real change, It doesn't take a genius to realize if we want to be wealthier as a country we need to make more buy less, work harder.
We apparently haven't gotten to that point yet. And that's fine.
