Jimmy Carterís Warning to the US

Quote:
He had harsh words for the Supreme Courtís 2010 Citizenís United ruling, which granted unlimited finance to political campaigns by the special-interest groups and super PACs that represent the interests of lobbyists and corporations. This is a new way of injecting money into the perpetually corrupt U.S. politics ó money paying for power....

He said, ďWe have one of the worst election processes in the world right in the United States of America, and itís almost entirely because of the excessive influx of money.Ē

These days, 87-year-old Carter has told more than one truth. He seems to be determined to wash off all the dirt on his country that he can see, in order to prevent it from falling to the same fate as Rome. He said that the United States has lost its influence in the Middle East; that the civil war in Syria will deteriorate due to the flow of weapons from countries throughout the region....

It is a shame that all these recommendations that are so appropriate for an interior and exterior assessment of the empire are falling on deaf ears, as did happen following the warning given by another president, Dwight Eisenhower, over what he then called the military-industrial complex.

The United States continues to be the country of war...and the epitome of corruption and greed.

Carter should have gone down as the Dem's Regan but 1 failed SpecOps mission (that failed for technical reasons that had nothing to do with his presidency) and people decide he didn't deserve a 2nd term. Instead we got Bush the Elder and all the neocons took over.
Thanks from numan

Don't forget he oversaw "stagflation", and I think he even invented the word. Were not very good times other than he was lucky enough to have peace (lull in turmoil requiring military action).

He did not oversee this, the whole world dealt with it. Now I understand why you would blame Obama for dealing with the great recession....he "Oversaw" it.

Under Obama's watch, the economy floundered for far too long. Could have been turned around much more quickly and with much greater increase to boot, had better actions and policies been applied, and greater confidence in our leadership been fostered.

And you of course know this due to your vast skills in economic, industrial, financial, logistics and technology combined with the ability to predict and adjust the actions of worldwide governments. Wow....if only we could have had someone like you in charge.....can I have a pony?
