Are Our Politicians Forcing a Revolution?

The only numbers that seem to matter to politicians are the corporate contributions for their endless election campaigns and the amount of salary those institutions will pay them when they pass back through the revolving door into private sector political careers such as lobbying, running PACs and Super-PACs; or using their political influence on behalf of corporate Boards of Directors that give them a seat in return. This is true of all politicians, regardless of party affiliation.

Even poll numbers that give voice to the desires and demands of the people seem to be ignored, or spun to support existing agendas, in favor of the dictates from corporations, financial institutions, and the other wealthy donors that make up the 1-2% that have been allowed to turn politicians into prostitutes by putting a dollar figure on democracy.

The public, regardless of their past traditional leanings, have become disgusted by the political process that no longer offers them empowerment, but is the mechanism of their disenfranchisement. Ordinary citizens, once pleasantly complacent and ambivalent to the antics of politicians, have become engaged, and subsequently enraged. The advent of social media has yet to be adequately factored into the equation when politicians decide to implement their disingenuous schemes.

The days of 4 channel television, with a single narrative, are gone. Well, they’re not really gone, the main stream networks, and a few of the cable ones as well, are still loyal to either party, or the establishment, depending on the needs of their corporate owners. However, the explosion of independent media has lifted the curtain, and turned on the lights, exposing the truth behind the illusion.

The inept and destructive game that has been played with the wealth of the nations of this world, for the profit of a few, has activated, and ‘radicalized,’ the citizens of the world. The decimation of our environment, as well as entire cultures unfortunate enough to live in areas of natural bounty, has been exposed, and is no longer tolerable. What seemed to be an initial polarization of the populace into competing camps, or parties, is shaping up to be a battle of both ends against the middle.

The supposed polar opposites on the political spectrum are beginning to realize that, despite their differences, they have much more in common than they do with the establishment. While people may differ on how to achieve their ends, the ends themselves are something they can usually agree on. Individual liberty, justice, equality, freedom, sustainable prosperity, and responsible, representative government are goals that unite us. The definitions of these things may differ, and prescriptions for their achievement may vary, but it is becoming widely accepted that we can work these out much better once we are all emancipated from corporate and plutocratic rule.

Both the Democrat and Republican parties, in America are in the middle of a charade that will end with the only winners being their personal bank accounts, their political war-chests, and their financial elite benefactors. Regardless of how the debt ceiling debate turns out, the result will be little different than health care reform. The only ones that will be hurt are the most vulnerable, and the working class as a whole, and the big winners will be the corporations and the politicians. People are no longer willing to be sucked in.

Conservatives and liberals alike, from anarchists to libertarians, are beginning to understand their common cause. We’ve been tricked into a polarized debate filled with distractions and wedge issues while the constitution has been subverted by corruption that has permeated every level of government, including the judiciary.

Wars are being fought that no one wants, or needs. Energy policies are being pursued that are slowly poisoning our planet and all of us that live on it. The wealthiest among us are experiencing the largest growth to their fortunes in history while more of us are homeless, starving, and lacking even basic medical care. Women’s reproductive rights, same-sex marriage, and public funding of social programs are looking like a cinch to solve in comparison.

The need for our collective emancipation from predatory capitalism, and the reinstitution of government by, of, and for the people, is the new rallying cry. The realization that even though our ideologies may be polarized, our fundamental needs and desires are not, is bringing together a community of singular purpose.

If we want to get over our enslavement to this current unsustainable and exploitative system, we must get over ourselves first. We need to stop getting drawn into the distractions. We need to stop wasting our energies on squabbles and small battles, and start focusing on the war that is being waged against us.

    It isn’t capitalism that is attacking the middle class. The American system of capitalism has been dead for decades, and we now find ourselves wrapped in the cloak of corporate fascism. Wake up and look around…

    Forcing a revolution?

    The feds have taken over most of the media in an effort to suppress what happened immediately following the 2008 election of Obama.

    A military Coup took place with the introduction of Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate. Obama is not the president, he’s the acting president. He disappeared for 2 weeks after his election win and has been turned into a Pentagon puppet ever since. Not only are a great number of stories in the news completely fabricated to generate chatter for the feds, they have the majority of comments on many news sites and are actively involved in the moderation of sites since the “death” of Osama Bin Laden.

    Osama Bin Laden is a code. It appears he was created by the New World Order. The New World Order consists of some of the richest people in the world with the goal of overthrowing the US government, some from inside our own government. They are also trying to collapse our currency and are behind all of the “buy gold” hype, not to mention thousands of money making opportunities online and late night infomercials. They are positioned to make billions by collapsing our economy.

    The attacks on 9/11 appear to be attacks on capitalism. The people that make up the New World Order are media moguls, CEO’s and many others. There’s also a reason why all the CEOs who ran in the last midterm didn’t get elected either.

    You will not read about this in the media since most of the media has been forced to cooperate or has been paid to cooperate.

    What you’re about to learn is true and not embellished in anyway. Here’s what Obama, Osama, Biden, Bin Laden, the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists, and Sarah Palin have to do with the last election and the military’s overthrow of our government.

    Do not hesitate to call the Pentagon, the CIA, the FBI and all branches of the federal government and tell them who they work for. Obama doesn’t need to be signing anymore things into law. Enough is enough!

      The USG is a Military/Judicial[scotus]bloodless coup since 2000 when the SCOTUS selected Bush as president.The military ballots that were counted, although were cast late, along with numerous other voting fraud and or irregularities in Florida resulted in the successful bloodless coup. In the USA a bloodless coup does not require a nationwide strategy just a few key States which may be the purpose of the Electoral College.

    None of this is Happening in a “Vacuum”.

    Sadly..the left and right..are both completely ensconced in what amounts to a straight-up “Psychotic Episode” of Surrealistic Hypocrisy and Stupefying..Mind-Numbing “Intentional Naivete’”.

    The One Truth..and it is a Rare..Perfect Truth..it can be Denied..it can be Rationalized..but it CANNOT BE..”Rebutted”..is this:

    “IT IS ALL ABOUT MONEY”.

    As such the now..literally..NOT Figuratively..but LITERALLY..TOTAL..Dismissal…TOTAL..Lack of even “Acknowledgment”..of the TOTAL COMPLICITY of Both “Left and Right” in:

    THE TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF THEIR/OUR OWN LIBERTY..

    Is Complete and in fact “Sanctioned” by the self anointed “Leadership” of these “Groups/Parties”.

    The FACT is this:

    YOU..are the FINANCIERS..the Co-Producers..the ENABLERS..of literally..EVERY SINGLE PROGRAM..AGENCY..AGENDA..DEPARTMENT..and CORRUPTION of Democracy now Undermining the “Grand Experiment”.

    YOU..are the Paymasters of Corporate Fascism.

    That the “Left” is pretending it is somehow “Not Complicit” in EVERY SINGLE SECOND of Torture..War..Death and Suffering..Or that it is “Not” BUYING EVERY BULLET DUG FROM THE CORPSES OF INNOCENT WOMEN AND CHILDREN..is:

    “The Lie That Is The Truth Of The Matter”.

    The “Left” for example..of which I am a De Facto “member” albeit a “REAL” Progressive as opposed to the neo-cubicle left “Clicktivism” fanatics and “Moderation” (Aka Censorship) Lovers…that “Left” is now..tragically..”Surpassing The Right” in “Loss of Intellectual and Moral Integrity”.

    And the “Right”? Jeezis..they’re so far gone its simply..impossible to even “Define” any longer..an Hypocrisy so..staggering as to be LITERALLY PSYCHOTIC. Separated from Reality by “Textbook Definition”..GENUINELY Psychotic in their Rabid and Shrill Shrieking Insistence that “Smaller Less Intrusive Government” is somehow “Synonymous” with INSISTING that “Government LITERALLY DICTATE…DICTATE..what are by Definition the MOST INTIMATE Areas of Our Lives..Marriage..Reproduction..Spirituality..

    But it is the ABANDONMENT of the REALITY of “MONEY AS POWER” by the “People” and their..now..almost EXCLUSIVELY “SELF ANOINTED” “Leaders” and “non-Profits” and “Think Tanks” that is Truly Telling and Is Now Almost PROOF a straight-up form of “Evidence” implying frankly and completely that:

    “America Is SUICIDAL and Seeks Self Destruction.”

    “Citizens United”?

    We here this..see this.read articles about it..and yet?

    And Yet One can Take ANY Article in ‘The Nation’ or it’s Conservative Equivalent and Read 5,000 Words About The EVIL That Truly Is “Citizens United” and then..it….ENDS..and NOT ONE WORD..Not One HINT…at the IDea..the FACT..that “Citizens UNITED FOR REAL”..Is THE ONLY WORTHY PROTEST.

    That “CITIZENS UNITED IN TAX PROTEST”..could EASILY..defeat the Corporate “Citizens” who are also..OBVIOUSLY..United in “Financial Self Interest”.

    This FAILURE to Make this Basic “Leap” to:

    “Oh Yeah..WE TOO Could Unite and Use the Power Of Money…gosh..whatta concept..”

    That Failure is Indicative of, in my opinion…a “GUILTY CONSCIENCE”.

    Everyone KNOWS..that it is THEY.who are FINANCING the DESTRUCTION of their OWN LIBERTY.

    Everyone KNOWS this and it is a FACT. And again..it can and IS Being “Denied”..it can and IS Being “Rationalized”..on a Daily Basis MINUTE TO MINUTE.

    But it CANNOT BE REBUTTED.

    For from “South Africa”..to “Farm Workers”..to “Gandhi” to the FOUNDING FATHERS…TAX PROTEST Is the “PERFECT TRUTH TO POWER IN A DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC WITH A TAX AND CONSUMER BASED INFRASTRUCTURE.

    It is So Perfectly Effective as Leverage and An Agent of Change..has been so PERFECTLY Successful over the decades…that TAX PROTEST/STRIKE..could LITERALLY BE Referred to as:

    “The LAW Of Tax Protest As The Perfect Agent Of Real Change”.

    Tax Protest and Its EFFECTIVENESS…is not “Hypothetical”.

    Nor is it “Theoretical”.

    The Pure PERFECT EFFECTIVENESS of “Denial Of Revenue” To Out Of Control Governments Who’s Entire..ENTIRE..Infrastructure and Financial Reality IS Based SOLELY Upon In Essence; The GOOD WILL and CONTINUED PARTICIPATION AND PAYMENT Of And By The PUBLIC…That?

    That is a LAW.

    A Scientific LAW as Reliable in its Effectiveness as the “Law Of Gravity”.

    it is “SOCIAL CALCULUS”.

    It is:

    THE CITIZENS NUCLEAR OPTION!

    And Until I Hear/See/Read The Words “TAX STRIKE”..or “UNITED TAX STRIKE”..or other variances to that effect…until then?

    There is NO HOPE..for “Change”.

    This Nightmare will continue until it collapses of its own savage corruption and hypocrisy.

    And that “De Facto Tax Protest”..will leave us in chaso. As opposed to a Ctizen based Economic Sanctions Program that would at least be a PLAN..still anxiety producing and scary..paradigm shifts ALWAYS ARE..but better that than “Collapse”.

    But Sadly..the Cowardice..the laziness..the TOTAL DENIAL of the Fact that YOU and You and YOU are ALL Complicit and Paying the Salaries of the Very People and Agencies and Programs you CLAIM to “Despise” and Be “Against”..will continue.

    For once again..America…does not WANT..to “Change”..it wants to DIE.

    It is an old axiom that “Expecting Different results From The Same Behavior is A Form Of INSANITY”.

    And that is what all your “Marching” (Such as even that is)..and “Talking”..and “Writing” and ESPECIALLY the Truly Hateful and Utterly FAKE..Phony as a 43 Bill “CLICKTIVISM”..the so-called “Facebook and Twitter Revolution”…..if “Change” is the Goal? Then these Are Forms OF INSANITY!

    ONLY Refusal to Finance Their THEIR…….THEIR….Agenda and very Lives will ALTER the Course of this Horrifying “Transition” From Democratic Republic to Corporate Fascist State.

    ONLY Your TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET AND ‘WHO’…’WHY’ AND ‘FOR WHAT’ IT IS SPENT…WILL ALTER THE COURSE OF THIS NATION.

    Nothing…Else…Will..Work.

    NOTHING!

    You can and will continue Pretending just as yo continue PAYING. But..that will not solve ANYTHING.

    The Left must “Reclaim” TAX PROTEST.

    And UNITE In a Tax Strike and Impose Citizen Based Economic Sanctions On This ROGUE CORPORATE GOVERNMENT. Or The “Grand Experiment” will Continue to FAIL.

    Period!

    P-E-R-I-O-D!

    This is a rare Perfect Truth..and Rarer Still? PERFECT TACTIC.

    Not only is it “Traditional” in America..being part of our Heritage and Thus Almost Impossible to “Seriously Slander As Terrorism” which WILL to a Moral Certainty be the “Reaction” from The Corporate Government (GovCorp)..but TAX PROTEST is ALSO:

    “NON-VIOLENT”!

    On the “Citizen End” It is NON-Violent.

    And Even Better Still..those who are sent out to BE VIOLENT? Even they are DENIED a hyper-Specific “Resource”: The MONEY that is their SALARY.

    When the “Violence Comes”..YOU as a TAX PROTESTER would KNOW that YOU Were NOT Paying the people Beating You. And that Those Who Would “Just Follow Orders”? Better Enjoy WORKING FOR FREE Because BY Beating those Enjoined in TAX PROTEST..that very ACT..(and this ONLY Applies to TAX PROTEST..and no other form of protest so PERFECTLY ACCOMPLISHES THIS)..their very ACT of Violence INCREASES THE LIKELIHOOD THAT THEY WILL NOT…BE…REWARDED FOR THEIR CORRUPTION.

    Tax Protest is Perfect and it is also a FAIL-SAFE put in place “On-Purpose” by the Founding Fathers who KNEW that “Consolidation” of Wealth and Power WOULD Eventually Occur. So they BASED their “System” on “Local Capitalism”.

    Sadly Michale Moore and many others FAIL to realize this very subtle reality; that “Capitalism with Distinctions” is a PROTECTOR Of Liberty For the very REASON that it GUARANTEE’S That at SOME POINT the CITIZENS..Must..literally:

    “AGREE TO CONTINUE PAYING FOR WHATEVER FORM OF GOVERNMENT HAS ARISEN!”

    This then is that Guilty Truth That SO MANY Are now in Pathological Denial Of:

    That this “Government”..IS IN FACT THE “GOVERNMENT YOU WANT, BECAUSE YOU ARE PAYING FOR IT.” CO-PRODUCING IT. IT IS THE PRODUCT YOU HAVE PURCHASED AND OBEDIENTLY CONTINUE TO PAY FOR EVERY SINGLE DAY.

    This is a Fact that CANNOT Be Rebutted. Only Denied and rationalized.

    This “Government”..is the One YOU Are Paying For!

    Period.

    You MUST want it this way? Otherwise WHY would you continue to PAY?

    No!

    The People Get The Kind of Government They DESERVE. And a Nation Based on now almost TOTAL Denial of ANY Responsibility..DESERVES a Rabid Fascist Regime.

    Its Happened Enough Times in the past that I would THINK That by now that much at least would be clear.

    Apparently…NOT!

    You Pathological Liars make me SICK.

    This is SELF Deception.

    YOUR COMPLAINTS ARE…..COUNTERFEIT. FORGERIES Of The Real Thing.

    I No Longer Pay..not since the Patriot Act Was Singed SANS Congress Even READING the Nightmare ‘Legislation’ And When Obama was elected and my ONE Vote for Him ..never again no matter what..I thought..and PLANNED..to “Pay” that year..NOPE! Twas not to be..I will NEVER Contribute to this Global Robbery Homicide and the Destruction of my OWN Liberty. Not THIS American Belligerent!

    But those of you who DO?

    You’re in fact providing “Material Support To The Enemy”. And Are So Complicit that you FORFEIT the “Right” to “Complain”. This is LITERALLY..”YOUR” Government.

    You Bought it and are Financing it. It BELONGS to YOU.

    Hypocrites.

    Tax Strike Or NOTHING!
