The promulgation of the battle between "Liberals" (a greatly misused word) and Conservatives is nothing but a Machiavellian distraction from the fact that Elites (both Republican & Democrat, "Liberal" & Conservative) are dismantling this Republic via Globalization...and getting rich in the process. It's not the "Liberals v. Conservatives" today; instead, it's the Elites v. the rest of us. Some of the Elites are "Liberal" and some are "Conservative". The old paradigm is long dead, but the Elites use it to mislead and distract us from the fact that they are in the process of "globalizing" the U.S.
There is no hope whatsoever for this country as long as people continue to believe that the battle is between Liberals & Conservatives, or Democrats & Republicans. That may have been true in the past, but today it is a complete charade...a farce. It keeps the masses placated and distracts them from the fact that Republican and Democrat Elites are dismantling our Republic...and getting super-rich in the process. Meanwhile, sincere but misled Americans continue to squabble over issues that pale in comparison to the issue of Globalization.
A worldwide, mega economic structure is being created via Globalization, and in terms of destroying the U.S., it is a gazillion times more important than ALL the so-called "Liberal or Conservative" issues combined. We will be a Third World country relatively soon, and whether it's a Conservative or "Liberal" country won't matter one iota. There will be only the super-rich Elites and the rest of us---the poor.
It breaks my heart to see sincere Americans arguing over things like whether or not the word "God" should be on our money when, at the same time, Globalization (promoted by both Republicans & Democrats, "Liberals" & Conservatives) is completely destroying our country, way of life, and form of government.
For the most part, Americans are asleep at the wheel.
Ask yourself: why do BOTH the Clintons AND the Bush Family support NAFTA? Why do BOTH Republicans AND Democrats support: the World Trade Organization, the concept of a North American Union, the concept of a global currency, the export of American jobs overseas, tax breaks and loans for multi-national companies that move manufacturing facilities out of this country, foreign aid to countries where the "aid" rarely reaches the people, bailouts for companies (and especially CEOs) who don't know how to run a business, and on & on?
Ask yourself: why do BOTH Republicans AND Democrats continue to devalue the dollar with deficifit spending? Why do they not address our HUGE trade imbalance with China?
Ask yourself: why do BOTH Liberals AND Conservatives completely ignore parts of the Constitution when it comes to money, the legal authority of the Fed Govt, and things such as bailouts for private companies?
The fact is, the movers & shakers of both major political parties are on the same team. They are doing everything possible to bring about Globalization, which will be the end of this country as we once knew it. And they are getting rich doing it. Meanwhile, American voters argue about whether or not the Ten Commandments should be displayed in a public building...and think that they can save the country by "voting".
The Constitution is ignored at will by both "Liberals" & Conservatives. [Direct quote: "Stop telling me about the Constitution. The Constitution is just a goddamn piece of paper." ~ George W. Bush (former King of the U.S.)] The dollar is being devalued at an unprecedented rate by both Republicans & Democrats---during the first 7 years or so of the King George Administration alone (during which Republicans controlled Congress), the dollar lost 40% of its value via deficit spending and the pumping of cash into the system through interest rate manipulation by the Fed Reserve.
Mega, multi-national companies contribute equally to national Democrat and Republican candidates...and they get a big bang for their bucks. These same mega companies are steamrolling this country down the path toward complete Globalization, and their Crony national politicians are the vehicle.
Do some research on David Rockefeller, a prominent Republican Elite. He has stated flat out that the Elites know what is best for the rest of us...and that is (according to him): unelected CEOs of multi-national companies and Foundations running the government of this country, whether the Administration is Repub or Dem, it doesn't matter. He said that Americans are now "sophisticated enough" to realize the value of that setup.
If Americans don't wake up to the fact that we are being bamboozled with the myth of the battle between "Liberals" and Conservatives, within your (not my) lifetime here's what you'll see:
1. the disappearance of our national sovereignty (the name will still be the USA, but it will be meaningless);
2. adoption of a global currency;
3. for all practical purposes, the elimination of our national borders;
4. more & more manufacturing moved overseas;
5. mandatory "national" service for all "citizens";
6. "political correctness" (i.e., conformism) on a global scale;
7. the importation of even more foreign workers;
8. the importation of even more foreign goods and services;
9. economic and monetary policy dictated by an unelected global body composed of the CEOs of mega multi-national companies; and,
10. totally unconstitutional surveillance of commoners.
And it will all be approved of, and brought about by, the Republican and Democrat (Conservative and "Liberal") Crony, Elite political establishment. That is David Rockefeller's vision---he has admitted to it publicly. He is well on his way to accomplishing that goal.
It is, in one sense, Mega Corporate Socialism. But according to Mussolini, it is Fascism: "the perfect marriage of Corporations and the State". The name of the Game nowadays is very plainly: the best way for the Elites to get even richer---and that is through Globalization. Democrats, Republicans, "Liberals", Conservatives---these are all anachronisms to the Elites of today. They think WAY ABOVE any such labels. And they are in the process of totally eliminating the Republic of the United States of America.
In my opinion, pundits such as Coulter, Limbaugh, and any "Liberal" pundit you can name are either in on the scam (through investments in the Mega Corps), totally ignorant, or complete fools. The old paradigm is long gone, and apparently they can't see that.
If it weren't so tragic, the whole thing would be comical.
[I keep putting the word "Liberal" in quotes because all of the Founders of this country were liberal; plus, the word is an adjective, not a noun.]
