We need to surgically remove these neo-conservatives from our government and our airwaves. Many neoconservatives like Paul Wolfowitz are disciples of Leo Strauss,
a philosopher who believed that the elite should use deception, religious fervor and perpetual war to control the ignorant masses Is that not what has been going on these past 8 years?
I am so tired of the propaganda spewing forth on mainline news stations.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace." (Jimmy Hendrix)
“ The American people are the best entertained and least informed people on the face of the earth. (Robert F Kennedy Jr.)
The list of "leaders" who based their power on fear is broad and long, Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, Pinochet and many, many others through the years. Fear of Jews, fear of intellectuals, fear of free thinking people, they created fear to bolster their power.
In every case the population was lied to, threatened and opposing voices silenced. In generations past their actions would have been called treason, now they seem to be called "strong". This perpetuation of fear among our populace could very well be the undoing of the dream that was America if we fail to awaken the general population to the lies.
We as a nation have been asleep at the wheel for far to long, we woke up momentarily to end the Viet Nam war and make a few changes for civil rights. Then went right back to our self centered lives trying to keep the wolf away from the door (pay the rent or mortgage) and maybe have a little fun, feeling sure everything was ok and our government was back on track. Along came the freedom of information act and the age of the computer and the Internet to catalog and sort out all that information and make it available to who ever wanted to learn. Wow, turned out to be much more information than I really wanted to know about my wonderful government and what’s it’s been doing around the world in the name of freedom and democracy. I felt sure there was a law somewhere that said we must pay taxes on our labor ? Nope, turns out there isn’t any such law, yet we do, Why ? I did not know that we were warned weeks in advance by the Australians that the Japanese were headed for Perl Harbor. Nor did I know that prior to that, we (the powers that be ) were trying our best to goad Japan into attacking us so we would have an excuse to enter the war. I for one, didn’t know that we did not have to drop the big one (A bomb) on Japan, they tried to surrender many times before the first bomb was dropped but their surrender fell on deaf ears. The powers that be decided that we needed to show the world, namely Russia, what an awesome power we were, in hopes that no one would ever want to mess with us. Of course all that did, besides murdering many innocent civilians, was to bring on the cold war and largest nuclear weapons buildup the world has ever known. Have you ever written a personal check to pay your taxes ? Check out the stamp on the back of the check, Federal Reserve, which in fact is neither federal nor a reserve but a private bank that lends money with interest to all governments in times of war. Ok kids who can tell me, who makes money off of war, besides the people (General Electric and others) who make the bombs, guns and all that good stuff raise your hands… International B a n k e r s
Woodrow Wilson said,” We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."
That’s right kids, those damn B a n k e r s and their buddies in government…
Today republican and democrat are just two hands of the same corrupt body or system. Throw into that mix the high powered corporations, the moral majority and Jerry Farwell (RIP) who said, “If you are not a born again Christian, you are a failure as a human being“.. and you end up with what we have today.
I for one am not in favor of party politics because it separates people like religions tend to do.
There are some crazy things going on in the world, not because our leaders are "unaware"; But rather because we the people are kept in the dark... Because it is profitable to suppress possibilities that exist for peace, health, liberty and justice for all.
