You might be an "economite" if you … prefer city lights to starry skies in wide open spaces; agree that a college education is worth going into significant debt; patronize stores in which the majority of the goods were made in Communist China; believe that illegal immigrants are needed to "do the jobs Americans won’t do"; forego family time to work to afford more expensive gadgets, clothes, and trips; are making minimum payments on credit card debt; subscribe to Forbes magazine; are bored without modern entertainment like sports teams, video games, social networking sites, reality shows, and iTunes; think free-trade agreements (like NAFTA, CAFTA, and KORUS FTA) benefit our economy; support politicians who think economic growth is always beneficial to a community; frequent casinos; or eat to thrive rather than to survive.
Leftist billionaire George Soros (picture, left) has openly advocated for the destruction of American sovereignty, the “managed decline” of the United States dollar, the need for open borders and the “creation of a New World Order.” Soros has also declared the United States to be the greatest obstacle impeding upon the creation of that New World Order and has announced that China would serve as the better leader in the New World Order.
When Terence Jeffrey, writing for CNSNews.com, noted that true federal spending for the fiscal year 2010 wasn’t $3.7 trillion after all, but closer to $11 trillion, he discovered an old accountant’s trick to make things look worse (or better) than they are: either double count, or don’t count at all.

Speculation over the length of conservative pundit Glenn Beck’s tenure at Fox News has pervaded media circles and conservative blogs almost since the first days of his appearance on the news channel.

On February 4, 2009, President Barack Obama signed legislation establishing a $500,000 limit on executive compensation at firms receiving federal aid through the Troubled Asset Relief Program. “In order to restore trust” to our financial system, Obama said during the signing ceremony, “we’ve got to make certain that taxpayer funds are not subsidizing excessive compensation packages on Wall Street. He referred to these “lavish bonuses” for executives at failing firms as “the height of irresponsibility” and “shameful” — “exactly the kind of disregard for the costs and consequences of their actions that brought about this crisis.”
Constitutionalist Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), the Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy, is planning to hold hearings about the Federal Reserve’s bailouts of foreign-owned banks during the economic crisis.
With the turmoil in the Middle East and the catastrophe in Japan, it is easy to be distracted from the power plays of the global elite.
