Name one place on earth where conditions are better for a happy and prosperous life, than the United States:

The fact that this forum exists, Ford dealers have the ability to innovate, design, engineer, produce and sell Broncos to us, is a testament to the beauty of a Capitalistic society. There is no other free nation that has the ability prosper a people, like America. This is why people are trying to leave their countries and come to our country.

I think many of those who criticize how things operate in our nation, should go an live in a third world nation for a year.

I lived in the Philippines for 8 years. I went there as a spoiled American, came back deeply humbled by a people that captured my heart with their simple, dignified, humble and resourceful lives. I have often said that we should ship 100 million Americans to the Philippines for one year, and 100 million Filipinos to the U.S. for one year. America would greatly prosper by the inclusion of people who would love our country, and add tremendously to our way of life. The Americans who would go to the Philippines would either have their hearts and attitudes changed greatly, or they would perish under the harsh conditions these dear people live.

Yes, agree with most of what you say in this post -
By 'Robber-Barons' I was referring to some lousy double-talking dealers charging ADM's to reservations w agreed MSRP . . . I don't agree with defending them . . .

Yup, spent more than couple years overseas in various countries . . . know what you mean . . .
However, in the Annual 'Rule-of-Law vs Corruption' Index (Transparency International) - I believe US now ranks outside the best 20 countries . . .

This forum does not permit me to give you an education regarding the difference between Capitalism and Socialism (no politics allowed). You should learn the difference.
Ha!!
Don’t be such an arrogant tool bro. I’m on the good guys side of free markets. My comment was if anything defensive of your post. But thanks for the education offer dad. Btw. It’s the CCP. Chinese communist party. It left socialism in the dust professor.

I agree with you completely regarding the dishonesty that we all have to endure. I have been burned, hurt, and taken advantage of too many times. It is unfortunate that our nation is filled with so many who take advantage of others and place money above principles.

My support of American enterprise, does not condone dishonesty. Keeping a cancelled order by a Ford dealer is not dishonest. Many other practices that some dealers do, are terribly wrong.

Thanks for sharing your experience overseas, it really changes a person.

What is the status of your Bronco order?

Don’t worry about ole squatchbronc. He wants to offer us rubes an economics lesson every time a dealer tries to hose customers. And it seems there’s very little he doesn’t know just about anything.

As long as you move the sexiest Filipinas to the front of the line. I want my gf (a Filipina) to have some competition... ;)

In all seriousness, the Filipino people are warm and awesome people in general and I have been fortunate to have spent some time there.

It's funny that you suggest we swap 100 million, it's much like how I feel about new military service members who have a little too much entitlement... I want to send them all to SERE school before allowing them to go for mental health care. ;)

🙋🏻‍♂️ I’m sure that appeals process of changing the name of order holder to buyer is really tough for them. Right now my dealer is at 100% not matching. I wonder if they charged the employees the same $400 to place the order that they charged people like me who actually want the damn Bronco.

You should understand by now that the reason dealers order vehicles for retail customers, some at discounted MSRP prices, is because many of these customers cancel, and the dealer retains these vehicles to sell at MSRP or higher. This is why they are Ford dealers, to make a profit.

The idea that the pool of Broncos being produced are somehow the collective property of the socialist distribution system, is preposterous.
What a great word.... preposterous

Early Res pushed to MY22 . . . which may be a good thing . . .
Yeah, I don't understand this whole process. Sorry you have waited so long. Sounds like you have the right attitude. Probably your service that taught you patience.

We must also realize how long ago many of these orders were placed. A lot can change in someone's life in a period of a year, 9 months, 6 months. Loss of a job, new kid on the way, had to relocate, etc. You get the picture. I think the attrition rate on these orders will be higher than most because of the length of the wait time. Oh well, at least they called you a let you know they have units they will sell way over msrp. I'm good with waiting and letting the market chill.
