It’s when they don’t lie that we need to worry.

The huge irony of American Exceptionalism is that though we feel we are special and the best, I would say the ruling elite no longer need us. They have all the power and the money. They own and are the government. They write the laws that screw us. The courts bow to their wishes, the results of which we now see in the Gulf of Mexico which the news has already deemed “yesterday’s” psycho-drama. When manufacturing was shipped overseas the economy was shipped with it. Those jobs are gone and won’t be coming back. Neither will the “economy.” But the ruling class doesn’t care. The ruling class looks at the Gulf of Mexico now roiling with crude oil and they don’t care. They don’t even pretend to care at this point or at least show less concern than is warranted. The truth is they don’t need us so why should they care? They aren’t affected and that’s what counts. Most of the ruling class will retire to their homes in France anyway.

So what do they need us for, the vote? What does your vote matter when every “serious” candidate has been approved by the ruling class and the Israeli lobby, AIPAC? Every serious candidate is a believer in the system as it is today replete with domestic spying, endless war, torture, and American adventurism. And with the deck stacked like that it matters little who is elected. I don’t even take elections seriously, all they are is a tool to convince you that you matter when in fact you do not matter, not one iota. Oh what a horrid thing to say! People have died so that you could have the right to vote yada, yada, yada. Oh bullshit. The whole purpose of the State is to allow one group to lord it over the rest, it’s why we have laws and that’s what they are for. What has the federal government done other than to prop up the white male rule? And look at the destruction these people have incurred, not only here but abroad as well with whole nations left utterly destroyed in their wake. They view us the same as they view the people of Iraq, completely and totally expendable, disposable.

If you are truly interested in what is coming down the road I suggest you study Native American history, Native American history from the Native American view. Read up on it and especially note the speeches given by many noted figures in history about their devout love for the Indian and then read what they actually did. The ruling class is treating us as they treated with the Indians. After herding the Native Americans onto reservations and breaking every treaty ever made with the Indians the ruling class made sure the Native Americans were essentially powerless and had few rights. Now think about how Obama declared that he can order the death of any American deemed a terrorist threat, by Obama, without any evidence or even a trial which erases every right and protection you mistakenly thought you had. Today many Native American reservations are places of poverty and hopelessness. I’m afraid that is the future for the general public as well or as things already are.

I think it’s going to be brutal for the young kids graduating from college. One out of every two Americans who is available for work doesn’t have work, a sixty year high water mark which has skyrocketed under the Obama administration. Not only have dreary assembly line jobs gone overseas but the jobs we were told that would be safe, the higher paying jobs, have gone with them. They lied to you, and what a huge surprise that is. Remember how they lied to the Native Americans? Remember how they lied to you about WMD in Iraq?

I think as long as they are still lying to us we’ll be fairly okay. It’s when they don’t even bother to lie to us is when we should really start worrying. Bad sign. I think the greatest likelihood is that what we see right now is what we can expect, a flat economy with continued high unemployment, endless wars for profit and a further erosion of our infrastructure. Just as congress abrogated its constitutional powers to the president regarding war we have abrogated our constitutional rights to the president as well. And the greatest right of all, the right to life, we abrogated to Brack Obama, oh excuse me, Barack obma, oh excuse me Obama. That is without a doubt the one most significant thing Obama has done. There is little doubt in my mind that they have been doing just that (killing Americans) for years but now they are more open about it under Obama. Just another sign that they don’t care what we think, being disposable and all.

Depressingly true--but still we have the citizen suckers mouthing the party line: "This is the greatest country in the world," while wondering why they can't seem to get a job and how it is their "representatives" ignore them once they're elected. Must be some little glitch in the system, it can't be the system itself....

Hi Mimi,

And the system remains constant, only the names change, or some of them.

Actually, Mimi, I think there are a lot of citizens who are saying this country sucks. It's rather encouraging. Unfortunately, nobody gives them a listen.

Cemmcs, it's all in your perspective, I guess. "A lot of people" may think the place sucks, but I'm afraid the vast majority I know personally are still sure the U.S is the best of all possible social setups. BTW, I wonder if there's any kind of organized revolt against the new order (I don't mean the Tea Party which seems to have been taken over by the right) going on--do you know?

You stumped me there. Sorry

cemmcs, Mimi,
both the A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition and the US Green party have been around for a while. I've discussed them in previous posts.

I don't necessarily agree with everything they endorse, but then again I can say the same about the major parties. (If you get on the ANSWER coalition's mailing list they will send you stuff pretty regularly, usually 2-3 times a week.)
