Yeah, they may have been giving us a taste of "at par currency" so when our $ drops, and the masses cry out, that they will offer us a "magical solution to the problem" with the Amero. It may take a few more cycles of the dollar going up to par, and dropping into the $.70 -$.75 range. But it will happen. They will try to form a N.American Union and it is only a matter of time.
Notice how when the banks all secured their bacon with the bailouts, it was shortly thereafter followed by lowered interest rates for savings and investments, an increase in lending rates, and showed little regard for their responsibility in the whole mess, the whole while moaning they were the injured parties involved. I guess the saying "the squeeky wheel gets the grease" applies here. Banks have a bigger lobby than Joe Public. And it is all part of a bigger game that we are only pawns in. Between the multi millionaire speculators manouvering the markets, and bankers and power brokers running the show, we stand very small chance of coming out ahead or even square with status quo.
With the election in the US a few days ahead of us, it will be interesting to see how long it takes for things to change into a different gear. And I can't wait to see what happens next. Things are definately going to change.
