Your ignorance is their strength

Rate This Article

Have you ever wondered why the United States is in the shape it is?

Have you ever wondered why China gets most favored trade nation status year after year?

Have you ever wondered where the factories have gone?

Have you ever wondered why everything has “made in china” marked on it?

Have you ever wondered why our taxes are so high?

The answer to those questions, and many more is “your ignorance is their strength”.

The less you know, the better off the corporations and the government are.  What allows mega-corporations to send millions of jobs overseas?  The answer is simple, the people keep voting the same two political parties into office year after year and decade after decade.

The political atmosphere of the U.S. is like a tennis game.  You have two players (the two major parties) who play with the voters like a ball.  One political party will hit the ball to the opponents court through bad legislation.  Then the party that just received the ball will pass some unpopular laws and hit the voters back across the court.

Maybe its time for a new game?  Maybe its time to vote the two major parties out of office and replace them with someone from the Libertarian party.

The problem is, most people are not, or can not bring themselves to vote for a party besides the big two.

Lets say you go to restaurant A and get terrible service.

You get so pissed off at restaurant A, you decide to give restaurant B a try.

You go to restaurant B, and its the same thing as restaurant A.

Why would you go back to restaurant A?  Why not give restaurant C a try?

That is what voting is like.  People refuse to mark the box that would bring about real political change in this nation.

Your ignorance, and your inability to act, allows corruption to ring in every corner of the government.  It is that simple, if you want real change, then vote like it.

How much more fleecing can the nation take before it crumbles?  How many people do we have to have on welfare?  How many jobs have to go to china?  How many bridges have to collapse, how many children have to go hungry, what does unemployment have to get to, what does the price of food have to reach,,, before you are finally willing to take some kind of action on the matter?

Ask yourself, is this the kind of nation that you want to leave to your kids and grandkids?  Maybe that is why the birth rate has been decreasing in the past few years?

Federal workers earning $100,000 or more grew from 12% in 2006 to 22% in 2011.

77,000 federal employees earn more than the governors of their states.

Illegal immigrants cost the state of California more then 10.5 billion every year, and that is just for education.

Workers on Disability Exceed Population of 39 States.  Which means the population of the remaining 11 states are working to support the other 39 states.

Illinois Government Pensions Over $100,000 Up 27%.

Spiraling decline of the middle class

Rate This Article

Kevin Felts blogger and survivalistThe middle class was disappearing in the 1990s, its even worse today.  We were warned 20 years ago what free trade was going to do to the U.S. economy.  What did the people do?  They elected bill clinton who did a flip-flp on NAFTA.  We should have elected Ross Perot.  But the people in their infinite stupidity could not bring themselves to vote for any other party besides the big two.

A guy I used to talk to lost his job in the late 1990s. The company he was working for decided it was cheaper to have the parts made in mexico then in the Texas.

After losing his job, the government paid for the guy to go to college and learn a new trade.

The government loses tax revenue through lost property taxes, lost wages, lost taxes on the wages, lost social security taxes and then the government is going to pay for people to be retrained?

Property taxes are a big loss to the local community.  When the school district loses part of its tax base, the lost revenue has to be made up somewhere else.  When that factory closes and, the building is demolished, the property taxes might go from lets say $100,000 a year, to just a few hundred a year.

You think the tax office is going to tell the school they have to cut $100,000 from their budget?  Nope.  The lost tax revenue will be divided between everyone that is paying property and school taxes.

Company B looks at their property and school taxes.  the owner of the company says “well, taxes went up again, time to move to china or mexico.

Then that lost tax base has to be divided between the people and companies in the community.

Libertarian Party

Rate This Article

Now that the nation is slipping into an even deeper depression, the voters might be wondering if they made a mistake.  If you voted for the Republicans or Democrats, you made a mistake.

If you want real change.  And not the Obama type of change, then its time to cast your vote for the Libertarian Party.

Keep in mind, it took both parties to pass the income tax.  And decades later citizens are asking their congress person to do something about this tax on the poor and middle class.  And to no surprise, nothing is done.

It took both parties to pass the bailouts of the big banks.  Where a lot of the money went to bonuses.

It is taking both parties to make sure that the banks keep control of the money of this nation.

It has taken both parties to keep free trade going between china and the USA.

If you want real change, vote for someone besides the two major bloated parties.

Political party games

Rate This Article

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is sending out emails entitled “End the Pelosi Recession.” The first sentence of the email goes like this:

Dear NRCC supporter,

House Republicans have pledged to stop to the “Pelosi Recession” caused by a bloated Democratic budget that spends too much, taxes too much and borrows too much.

First thing right off the bat, I am NOT a supporter of the Republican party, I vote straight line Libertarian Party.

What the letter does not mention, is that it takes both parties to pass a bill.  When the Republican has control of congress, there is usually a Democrat President. This is supposed to cause a balance in government. But does not.

The fact is, the Republican and Democratic parties are exactly the same. Even though one party says one thing, and the other party says something else – the end results are the same.

It past time for the American people to wake up, and take responsibility for what they have caused. By blindly following a party the voters have allowed corrupt lawmakers to stay in office.

Place the blame where it is supposed to go. On the shoulders of the voters. If you want “real” change, and not the Obama type of change, then its time to vote for a party besides the republicans or democrats.
