A lot of things have changed since the turn of the last century. Home phones, broadcast television, and physical media are all things of the past. They are ancient relics that, in a few short years, have become so antiquated it is nearly impossible to imagine life with them in place. Most people over the age of 30 can remember a time when people scheduled their lives around a television show, researched things in libraries, or subscribed to newspapers, but to anyone under the age of 20 those things are about as relevant to their lives as the steam engine or the pony express.
Not a lot of Americans in the year 2012 are coal miners or work on the railroads. Not a lot of college students are seeking bachelor’s degrees in telecommunications or journalism. And for that matter not a lot of people with bachelor’s degrees are working outside of the service industry as bartenders, waitresses, and clerks in convenience stores. They work right alongside high school dropouts and the only difference between them is the college graduates have five figures of debt.
But those are not the only things that have changed. With the internet, and all the information and communication it has made available, people’s attitudes about politics, globalization, and even towards each other, have evolved considerably. When the U.S.S.R. crumbled in 1990 and the U.S.A. officially won the Cold War it signaled the end of Communism and ushered in a new era where Capitalism was completely free and the American Dream had no boundaries.
Which is what we were told at the time, but it’s not at all the way things worked out a scant 22 years later. Soon after the fall of Communism, Bill Clinton began building his Bridge to the 21st Century. And build it he did. He deregulated the banks, signed NAFTA into law, and just like Abe Lincoln, freed big business from the shackles and bondage of tariffs and trade agreements to go forth into the bold new era and create jobs and opportunities like never before. Except instead of creating jobs like everyone said they would do, they instead consolidated their power and eliminated millions of jobs while simultaneously purchasing the governments of sovereign nations at bargain prices. The freedom that Bill Clinton granted to global business came directly at the expense of the freedom of every person in the world that was possessed of less than at least ten million dollars worth of assets.
After we crossed Slick Willie’s bridge of human bones George W. Bush took hold of the reigns and ushered in 8 years of looting and pillaging of the treasury as well as passing the Orwellian USAPATRIOT Act which grated the executive branch of government nearly dictatorial power and rendered the United States Constitution irrelevant.
But then came Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama, the savior of the people and the most overwhelmingly popular President since John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who furthered the agenda by passing the NDAA into law which grants the executive branch the power to indefinitely detain and even execute anyone they want without due process of law or even an explanation.
The point of all this is that, republican or democrat, all of the last three Presidents of the United States of America, and arguably every President since JFK, have been actively furthering a very suspicious agenda that is not in the best interests of the citizens of the United States of America. It’s almost as if there was some group of people behind the scenes making the calls…
But wait! Now we’re getting into conspiracy theory here and that’s just plain crazy. Or is it? After all, there are conspiracies, and to me at least, it seems oddly suspicious that both of the dominating political parties in this country behave, when it comes down to it, in the exact same manner. If you strip away the silly fringe benefits like Obamacare, George W. Bush’s tax rebate checks, and Bill Clinton’s legacy of a robust economy, what’s left is the evidence of a systematic elimination of the basic freedoms of the citizenry and a gross weakening of national sovereignty; two very important things that, when they are not in place, can easily pave the way for a new kind of global fascism, the likes of which the world has never seen.
It is mid October in an election year. There have been two Presidential debates. Usually by this time Presidential politics are dominating not only the media, but the hearts and minds of almost everyone in the country. I’ve talked about it before. There is a strange demented fever that sweeps the land around this time that makes rational, level-headed, clear-thinking individuals babble in nonsensical buzzwords and rally behind rich and privileged men who they’ve never met.
But it’s not happening.
Or at least it’s happening less.
There is buzz on facebook about the debates. There are stupid memes and some good satire, and even still a whole bunch of people that are trying to “rock the vote”, but there is nowhere near the hype that has existed in any previous election in my lifetime.
Some are calling this a “pivotal” election. Some are even using the term “monumental”, but is it either? To me, it looks like a no-brainer that’s even more lop-sided than the last one. I’m sure there are people out there that will vote for Mitt Romney, but there won’t be a lot of them. To the average Joe on the streets that pays any attention at all Mitt Romney comes across as a rich, entitled, uncaring piece of human shit that has no compassion for anybody and no plan other than blatant profiteering. He is a complete joke.
We’re talking about a man that makes George W. Bush look Presidential. He has no place in the same room as Barack Obama, let alone as a serious candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America. This is a man that makes Sarah Palin look smart, John McCain seem compassionate, and Arnold Schwarzenegger seem competent. It’s almost as if the Republican Party, the Party of the rich, the powerful, and the ruling class, chose someone to represent them that embodied all their worst and most loathsome characteristics.
It’s a fucking fix if I’ve ever seen one.
And it makes me wonder. If there really is some sort of hidden globalist agenda then why wouldn’t they stick with Obama? After all, he’s not only done their bidding (ignoring the Fed, signing into law the NDAA, appointing a Monsanto executive as chair of the FDA, etc.) he’s actually likable despite the fact that he’s committed gross atrocities (drone bombing Iran, prosecuting marijuana growers, etc.). I mean shit, if I were running things I’d surely want him in my corner. At least more than Mitt Romney, a man that speaks for nobody at all and shits out of his mouth whenever his foot’s not in the way.
There is no doubt in my mind that at least the last three Presidential elections were completely fixed from the start, and this one is no different. Mark my words, Obama will win by a landslide. Again. Not because he is a good President, but because his phony opposition is so hideous that Medusa herself would cringe at the sight of it. There is no way that anyone with any sort of reasonable mind would endorse Mitt Romney for anything at all. He is a disgrace to the human race.
The only reasonable conclusion is that it was fixed from the start and the Obama is the man that they want.
And he will be. He will be the President for another four years and then the “choices” will be even more ridiculous than they are now.
Good luck to you all with this one. I’m voting for me.
