America is run by a powerful oligarchy.  This is a truth everyone knows but hates admitting.

They operate through a hundred organizations, the CFR, Trilateral Commission, NAM, US Chamber of Commerce and hundreds of associations, "think tanks" and private cabals. 

We don’t have free elections.  We have two political parties controlled by different cliques who fight over our decaying bones.  They have one goal, total control of our lives in order to milk us of dry.

When the government collects taxes, we pay it, not "them," the ruling class.  When the goverment buys anything, it buys it from them at 10 times the value.   It doesn’t matter if it is needed, works or even is delivered, it is all just a scam. 

When we buy anything, we buy it from them.  If they want gas to cost $4 bucks a gallon, they do it.  If they want an aspirin to cost $10, the do it.  If they want milk at $5 a gallon, they do it.  Same game, same scam.


They do more.  If they want our retirement funds, they simply empty the stock markets.  They run our treasury like it is their private piggy bank, spending and stealing and we pay.  We always pay.  How, you ask?  We pay for it with low wages, we pay for it with taxes, we pay for it with high prices, we pay for it with the diminished value of our homes and retirement accounts and, most of all, we pay for it with the lives of our kids who fight wars with no purpose but to help them rape the world with their foreign buddies, their buddies who are often supposed to be our enemies.

The real war is here at home.  For a country filled with voters, gun owners and people fooled into thinking they have rights, free speech, religious worship and more, it is all a lie.  They only reason "the bosses" let us have anything was their utter terror of Communism.  America already lost the "great war."  We have been conquered, enslaved and brainwashed and hung out to dry. 

Why do you think that the past 20 years has seen wealth move in the most massive flow in our history, not into the middle class, but into the hands of a very few while our country is buried in centuries of debt?  Yesterday’s "middle class" is sleeping in cars today.

Jobs have gone overseas by the millions while our country has been flooded with illegal aliens.  We fight war after war, always less justified and more corrupt and costly.  Millions of homes stand empty, jobs are non-existent and an endless list of government scandals, rigged election, political prosecutions, corrupt wars and leaders openly ranting childish lies while their own lives are grotesque and twisted with depravity.

Our government isn’t paralyzed, it was bought.  In a country where "soft money" is an open euphemism for bribery and the "seniority system" empowers Congressional leaders much as though they were Mafia "dons," crushing freedom is now almost effortless. 

Every American institution has been suppressed, intimidated, controlled or bought off.  Universities, once centers of dissent and challenge now are little more than training schools for financial and defense industry fodder or slave laborers for the medicial racketeers.  Though medical costs have risen beyond imagination, nurses are paid less every year.  American nurses are now being laid off while foreign nurses are being flooded into the country.  How is this possible?

Anyone speaking up is silenced.  The media was bought by foreign corporations, defense contractors and crooked investment firms long ago.  Clowns and apes read our news and run a blithering commentary of disinformation hour after hour, glorified by the ignorance and fear that makes their jobs simple.

We will never be able to count the number if victims of our slave labor state.  Are we really that?  Are people jailed for speaking up, jailed, murdered or suppressed.  What is a "free speech zone?"  When we read about Karl Rove arranging for political enemies to be investigated and jailed, why did so few realize that this could only be done in a police state, yes a slave labor state?  No democracy would have allowed it.

Anyone speaking up is called a Communist, Socialist, Fascist or, of late, a "liberal."  If they are a "whistleblower" they lose their jobs and are silenced by court order.  If they are politicians like former Congressman Jim Traficant, currently awaiting release from Federal Prison, you will find how quickly you can move from "independent voice" to "prison blues."  At least there was no plane crash this time.  You can only do that so many times before people notice, or can you?

How long does Ron Paul have?  Wait til he becomes a real threat.

Like other dictatorships, we have a massive prison system, largest on Earth, with millions jailed.  We have courts stacked with judges controlled by political parties and a series of Federal law enforcement agencies that spent the entire Bush administration arresting protestors, investigating political enemies, violating Constitutional rights of every American and protecting the powerful corrupt.

President Obama is offering is continuity, same war, same scams. 

The end result has been two fold:

  1. The American people have no influence in their government.  If anyone attempts to challenge control from above, they are destroyed.  The evidence of this is overwhelming.
  2. While hundreds of billions in borrowed money flowed into the coffers of the rich, the homes of America’s real people became worthless or were lost along with jobs, savings, investments and personal property.  This is a cycle, begining under Reagan with the Savings and Loan collapse and will keep on as long as Americans work and save and the rich and powerful are allowed to steal.

It is said that the greatest accomplishment of Satan was to convince so many that he didn’t exist.

And so it goes….
