Socialism in the United States: You Know it's Bad when the Russians are Surprised
I believe this article is making the rounds (at least on teh Intarwebz) and therefore wanted to be sure to pass it along.
In case you were still confused as to which direction America is headed (or where we have already arrived), "American Capitalism Gone With a Whimper" pretty much sums it up nicely for you. Before I get accused of constantly bashing our dear President (with the Wicked Witch of the Far Left riding bitch in his GT Socialism Cruiser 5000), I remind you here that I didn't agree with our buddy GWB either -- to say the least. The last time I remember liking a President of the United States was Bill Clinton and that's because I was a blissfully ignorant 5th grader when he was in office (did I just make you feel old? Sry bout that).
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.
Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
Wait WHAT?! Russia was merely practice for the great transformation of America? Well isn't that reassuring. Whether you believe in this or not (I don't buy it), you must admit that we have certainly given up our wealth (through Fed shenanigans, bailouts, and the desires of the corporatocracy), our freedoms (Patriot Act ring a bell? You're branded a potential terrorist in your own country just for expressing your opinion -- case in point, the recent DHS report targeting "right-wing extremists"), and our futures (psst: you can't run trillion dollar deficits forever) without much of a fight. Sure, we grabbed our flaming pitchforks when the AIG bonuses went out but then what? Lay down and take your robbery like a good little bitch, America...
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.
This point cannot really be argued against. We're stupid, America. We're stupid because we let these things go on, we're stupid because we don't even understand how our financial system works, and we're stupid because we keep electing the same asshats who did this to us in the first place (party affiliation doesn't matter - both sides are selling us down the river. But we're stupid because we keep letting them).
You may not be able to recite the Constitution but I bet you know who won American Idol, don't you? That's what I thought.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?
No, Russia, you should not. You should call us out. We should call ourselves out, which is exactly why I share this with you now.
Are you going to lie there and allow this to continue? If you choose to ignore the obvious, do us all a favor and move to Canada. Surely they wouldn't mind having a few more Socialists around to suck at the government teat (free health care and moose! woo!). What we need in America is a wake-up call - or do we need more lazy, ignorant Americans to sit around and bitch about the very situation which they allowed to transform this country from the land of the free and the home of the brave to the land of the poor and the home of the bankrupted?
Surely we have enough of those lying around getting fat on junk food.
We may easily point the finger at the Federal Reserve and whichever asshat sits in the Oval Office and the impotence of Congress but in all fairness, America, we need to take a long hard look in the mirror and ask ourselves how in the hell we did this to ourselves. The fucking Russians are calling us out! Come on!
