Not exactly true. That's like saying all Germans are idiots because they live under tyranny.
Long before we had out-of-control spending and big government, America was one of the most free and most prosperous countries in the entire world. No other country could compete with us, economically or militarily, for around a century. Guess what happened? The US Federal Reserve took over the economy and centralized control. Then the government implemented an income tax. Then they caused the Great Depression. Then they outlawed gold possession. Then they fluoridated our water supply to dumb down the masses. Then they started getting us into more major wars, decade after decade, more and more wars. To expand wars, government needed to spend more. So they increased taxes, decade after decade. Then they abolished the Bretton Woods agreement and created a global reserve currency backed by OPEC oil trade for the USD, and USD became the only currency nations could use to buy oil globally. Then they started to help US businesses outsource our industry and manufacturing jobs for cheap offshore Chinese labor (as you can see today, another crude mistake
). As poverty skyrocketed they had to put many Americans on welfare, and expand welfare decade after decade. More debt. More spending. More wars. More welfare. Then they needed the "war on poverty" and the "war on drugs" to fight societal problems. Later on the largely-fraudulent and insolvent mortgage market crashed, they bailed out the ponzi schemers to save the Federal Reserve's ass (the government's favorite piggy bank). When some nations realized America was now a house of cards, they desired to create their own currency to trade for oil on the global markets. Then the US government regime changed those nations, assassinated "dangerous" foreign politicians and leaders, or went to war with them directly. And what happened? More debt, more out-of-control government spending, more draconian laws to micromanage an economy THEY FAILED in the first place. And here we are today.
