Are you with or against business integration?

Sohaila_Hamed
bballcrook21

I am against business integration because it decreases the mixed economy of a country if a governmental investment merges with a private business which is very essential for a country to have since the more the nationalization of businesses the more the governmental subsides meaning less taxes thus causing the country's currency to decline. Soon the country's banks might get into a severe depression and the government won't have enough capital for further investments causing unemployment to incr...

The United States should convert to the Metric system

qtstepp

The United States should NOT convert to the metric system because in order to convert, we would have to change every single road sign, every single container, every single map, every single GPS system, and much much more. Millions upon millions of dollars spent just to make America the same as everyone else. But the American Standard System is just part of what makes America unique. Our money needs to go to more important things, like schools and creating more jobs. Now, you may argue that the c...

Gay marrige

Maciebaker
Zarroette

Hello, to whoever may read this. I do not mean to offend you but these are my beliefs and I do feel strongly about them. So, be prepared lol. I have always felt gay marrige should be legalized. Quite frankly until this week when it finally was, I never thought it would happen. I'm not a member of the LGBT community, but I'm 100% for it. Don't get me wrong, it's not a total shock to me when people want to use bible verses and Jesus Christ as reasons gays shouldn't marry. I understand completely....

Sound Money is better than Fiat Money for the average citizen.

tlockr
jvlbasic

A sound currency is the foundation of a truly strong economy. By sound I mean to say the currency is dependable, consistent, only imperceptible changes in value over long periods of time, and cannot be easily counterfeited. Typically this is achieved by connecting its value to some rare commodity. Fiat money is typically paper currency that is not redeemable for any sort of commodity. Because it is inconvertible, the preceived value is ever changing in a way that can be very tragic for averag...
