Admittedly, the image is an exaggeration; nevertheless and more importantly, totalitarianism is totalitarianism---regardless of the flavor.
Both Republicans and Democrats (in general) are promoters of Statism in America today. The Fed Govt has expanded for decades whether Repubs or Dems have been in charge in DC, with ever more intrusions into our personal and professional lives. The claim is that it's all for our own good. Meanwhile, our freedoms continue to erode as the elite one percent get richer and the rest of us get poorer.
One of the reasons the above is happening is because the Corporate Media (shills for the Corporatocracy) continue to promote the myth of Right vs. Left, Republicans vs. Democrats, etc. Divide and conquer. Use fear of the "other group" to manipulate people. Keep the masses from learning who the real adversaries are---the Corporatocracy vs. us.
The goal of the Corporatocracy, as stated by David Rockefeller (paraphrased), is to create a one-world government of supra-national elites (primarily super-rich corporate types) who will run the world as if it were a giant corporation. The elites will make the rules; we will have to live by them. I should emphasize---this is NOT a conspiracy. It's right out in the open for all to see; but it's not publicized, and the Corporate Media rarely ever cover the story. [NBC News actually did cover the Trans-Texas Corridor, which is to be extended through the Great Plains all the way to Canada and thus linking Mexico, the U.S., and Canada in one huge NAFTA Superhighway---eighteen lanes wide. That's all a small part of the plan to implement the North American Union.]
When the North American Union and the Asian Union are in place, eventually they will merge with the European Union, the African Union, and the South (and Central) American Union. Countries will most likely retain their historical names---no need to unduly alarm the public---but all people will be subject to rules created by the international, elitist Corporatocracy. Rockefeller claims that such an arrangement "is surely preferable to what we have now".
One of the ways that common people will be controlled or manipulated in this "New World Order" will be via our medium of exchange---money. If the elites get their way, eventually all money will be digitized and will reside in some version of a personal computer chip. If someone causes the Corporatocracy any trouble, then that person's chip will be electronically disabled...all according to the rules, of course. Tax collection will be done electronically...and will be a snap. Every time you buy something, there will be an electronic record of it available to the world government. Privacy largely will be a thing of the past.
Boycott the Corporatocracy whenever possible. Reclaim your individual sovereignty. [See previous posts on the subject, elsewhere on this blog.] The nightmare described above can be stopped, but voting for a Democrat or a Republican is not going to do it. The elites in the two-party monopoly are part of the Corporatocracy.
