But how can you explain that a country like Spain which is in fact the 8th largest world economy, the sixth largest world investor, the first or second investor in Latin America and the fourth in the US ( all according to World Bank and OCDE figures)be excluded from this and subsequent G20 meetings?

And its still surpising that barrack Obama’s comment on outsourcing, where the companies has dried their balance sheets and looking for either cash or saving the cash.

As US made everyone belive that world is too small, and hence it replicates the crisis in US effecting the whole world. Now its time for US to really believe that world is too small and encourage the investment and request for more funds from outside US.

Our descent will increasingly slip down this path well beyond US citizen control exponentially over the next 4-8 years. Make no mistake…there has already been a CRASH. Most Americans just don’t realize it yet. The warning lights came on with the wealth transfer and power consolidation started in 1968 and we have all been asleep at the switch for almost three generations since. I never believed that I could come to condsider adopting and promoting Libertarian principles….but I guess I’m there and just now realizing it! Time to significantly restrict our economy, borders, politics international activity and re-build from within. What is the rest of the world going to do…shut us off???? Probably the kick in the pants we need to start moving in the right direction.

Folks the Global Free Trading system advocated and embraced by our political and economic leaders is a “Trojan Horse” mirage being used to defeat our economy,our people and our independence. They (Europe, China, India, Russia, Africa, Saudi….) now are going to try and enforce rules upon us that none of them played by or will play by in the future.

We can make our own materials, cars, energy, clothing and food. We can build our own homes, banking/financial systems and businesses right here in the US with the resources WE HAVE NOW…. Wake up!!!! Wake Up!!! WAKE UP!!!

Europe have 3 permanent UN security council members with veto power, which India does not have. What kind of democratic world is this ?. What kind of world order is this ?. Current world order represets post world war 2 times and it needs to be changed. Europe, You still live in past legacy, Please come into terms with the current realities.

In the next ten years, we will not recognize what we were. And, we’ve tried so hard to keep threats away from our borders, without realizing what threats were really invading us.
