    im sorry this is the? worst commercial i have ever seen.. yea i get the analogy but really?? everytime it comes on i debate throwing a brick threw the screen.

  • gs6285gs says:

    Too bad few want to? acknowledge that BEFORE any money can be spent it must be BORROWED.

  • LegionnaireEtrangere says:

    What a stupid commercial! Government finance is nothing like drug addiction. Instead of just cutting spending on those whose depend on it, Senators and Congressmen could stop coddling multi-billion dollar banks. Last year, Bank of America recieved a nearly $1,000,000,000 tax return! While it sat on $17Bil in US profit overseas. It’s cheaper? for a company to move $ overseas and call it reinvestment than to pay it’s corporate income tax. End corporate tax loopholes and pass a transaction tax!

    In? debt? Spend more, borrow more.. In debt? Spend more, borrow more.. In debt? Spend more, borrow more.. In debt? Spend more, borrow more..

    50s, When you control the creation and circulation of the medium of exchange you are ‘the power’..the government. Our Constitutional government wrongfully farmed out is authority to monetize the people’s production as debt-free wealth to them to the banking industry that monetizes our production as unpayable interest-bearing debts. We are not governed by our government but by the banking industry. Debt is the only ‘tool’ they need. We need to return that power? to the people.

    @gs6285gs: “difficult to have good conversation in e-mail threads”

    Youtube does a poor job organizing threads for? conversations, it’s true, but I’d prefer to keep the debate public, where it began. Also, I personally find it easier to understand arguments and order my thoughts in text than in speech; just a quirk in my wiring.

  • 50srefugee says:


    Ah, I see your website wealthmoney org, and? I’m watching this video from that site:

    It seems to me that I’m generally in agreement with you on the wealth versus debt question. In that context, your initial comment makes perfect sense.

    However, rather than saying that substituting debt for wealth is the cause of what’s happening, I’d say that it is merely one tool that governments use to concentrate power into their hands.

    Power is the real addiction.

  • gs6285gs says:

    Dear 50sRefugee, I understand what you are saying. At the? same time, wealth is what we produce. Debt is what we use for money. The two are not the same.

    It is very difficult to have good conversation in e-mail threads. Please feel free to call me and I will try to help you understand how they have switched our medium of exchange from Wealth to Debt and why that is the cause of what’s happening. Gregory K. Soderberg 507-440-1015.

    @50srefugee: “[govt] steals or destroys wealth”

    I should clarify: a properly constituted govt takes a tiny fraction of wealth from its citizens to protect their ability to generate more wealth against enemies “foreign and domestic”. The? U.S. govt has gone far beyond that, and its agents seem to believe that the citizens exist to serve it, rather than the other way round.

  • 50srefugee says:

    @gs6285gs: “don’t borrow…nothing to spend”

    First of all, this ad is about govt debt. The business of the govt is telling you what you must and must not do. I don’t want much spent on that.

    Second, businesses borrow, yes, but then they pay it back out of the? profits they earn providing products and services. Businesses generate wealth.

    The govt borrows and either borrows again, or services the debt by sticking you up at gun point for taxes. It steals or destroys wealth.

  • gs6285gs says:

    If we don’t borrow there? is nothing to spend.

  • juancook1 says:

    lol its funny, all the negative responses are people that didn’t understand the message.?

  • juancook1 says:

    This ad made more sense to? me, than any other ad I’ve seen PRO/or ANTI-Government for that matter. Finally, something that makes sense.

  • Christwillrize says:

    hes saying how fucked our economy? is. we keep borrowing money we canot payback. and we still continue. go to new america 15 . com you will see what hes talking about.

  • usarestuff says:

    some of you guys are retarded. its just making a point. You? don’t really think theyre saying take advice from a drug addict. Perhaps a recovering drug addict. But its just making a point. you sensitive fucks.

  • clarkcountysfinest says:

    To all the people that want to talk shit about this drug addict or any other drug addict you should think about when you were a kid, like you didn’t experimented. Or maybe try and think what the? fuck they had to go through growing up, what life they had to live before deciding that using drugs could be a way for them to forget the pain that they had to deal with. they didn’t just wake up one day and decide that “oh, I think I want to get loaded today.” for the people that talk shit, FUCK YOU!!!!

  • Republicraticparty says:

    It’s like saying the GDP and GNI are the same thing… what I earn and spend has nothing to do with the government’s debt…? “To borrow less, you need to spend less…” ummm… redundant quote.

  • mazdarx327 says:
