Your ignorance is their strength

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.

Human Cattle

Kevin Felts blogger and survivalistThis might piss some of you off, but too bad. If you are a member of the middle class, you are nothing but human cattle. And the bad part, you put yourself there.

The industrial revolution and the formation of unions gave rise to the middle class.

Free trade and unbridled capitalism will destroy the middle class.

One reason why the middle class developed is because companies were forced to pay a liveable wage. A lack of skilled workers and collective bargaining through unions led to higher wages and benefits.

What happens when there is a surplus of labor, and companies can have their products built by cheap overseas labor? Do you really think the middle class will continue to exist?

Where do we lay the blame?

Do we blame the democrats? Do we blame the republicans? Both parties deserve equal blame for the economic situation the U.S. is in.
