“The Trilateral Commission is international and is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the U.S.” - Sen. Barry Goldwater
What have we become?
Sadly, most politics is viewed through the hyper-schism between the left and right. In media-politics, everything is spin. Democrat spin. Republican spin. We are led to believe that this is the total spectrum of policy debate in the United States. There can be nothing else. It's all about these two parties.
This is what's real.
We learn that the Republicans are the party of limited government and national security. Democrats are the party of civil liberty and the blue collar masses. Republicans support giant corporations. Democrats fight for entitlements and the poor. When you think pro-choice, you probably think Democrat. When you think pro-life, you probably think Republican.
Against the war in Iraq? Democrat. Can't stand illegal immigration? Republican. Likely to donate to PETA and call yourself "vegan"? Democrat. Clear-cut the rainforest and drink Bambi's heart blood? Republican. Issue by issue, state by state, red or blue. How sad.
We have forgotten the real dichotomy. The only one that matters. The only one that has ever mattered: Liberty versus Tyranny. Freedom versus Servitude.
Because of the illusions of choice presented by the two-party system, controlling the masses is merely a matter of controlling the two parties. The money apparatus has allowed the oligarchs at the top of the banking and corporate pyramids to manipulate this dynamic for the purposes of advancing global tyranny.
Though this was once veiled and distant, it is now upon us darkly.
We have a congress that neither writes nor reads the legislation that it imposes upon an anesthetized public. We have a military and intelligence grid run amok, spreading itself across the globe while creating a new surveillance society here at home. We have a president that serves as a showman and a distraction surrounded by entrenched establishment interests -- CFR and Trilateral Commission stalwarts -- who design and influence policy towards the interests of elite globalists and their fascist agenda of centralized control.

Meanwhile, the hypnotized masses believe that they are voting for hope and change when the only thing that changes is goddamn middle-management. The oligarchs and elitists behind the scenes have completely taken control of the American Republic.
This paradigm of political control creates an illusion of choice, an illusion of difference. How else was Clinton able to sell the American worker and powerful union interests down the river with a globalist treaty such as NAFTA and still get re-elected with the enthusiastic support of the same constituency? How was Bush able to get the blind allegiance of Republican minions while heralding-in a new prescription drug entitlement and shitty No Child Left Behind education reform? I thought that Republicans were opposed to increasing the size of government and bureaucratic entitlements. I thought that Democrats opposed treaties that would create an exodus of American jobs.
When you wonder why the once mighty industrial base in the US has dispatched to China, or when you moan about the welfare state and your kid's shitty education, think no further than this illusion. The Democrat and Republican parties are two factions of the same whore-beast globalist hydra. Copulation is regulated. Grab your ankles.
Centralization of power continues regardless of which political party is in office. The reason that nothing ever seems to change in Washington is because it doesn't. Everything continues to flow in the inevitable direction of centralization and tyranny. Liberty becomes a phantom mythology and your freedom merely a state-managed carbon credit.
We are being had.
The reason why it's okay when Clinton violates the ethics of the left is because to people on the left, he is so much better than the frightening alternative.
And if Bush creates bloated government entitlements, at least he's not the other guy. I mean, c'mon... that guy's a fucking communist.
What a joke. They both service the same master. It's time to come to terms with this. Choice is dead. Liberty is dead. The Constitution is dead. Our country has been infiltrated and destroyed.
For the last eight years, the American left was in absolute turmoil over G. W.'s war-mongering, domestic spying, torture, and imperialism... but now that Obama is perceived to be in charge, the left is silent. Nothing. Because at least he's not the other guy.
Obama has expanded the war into Pakistan and plans to escalate the war in Afghanistan. He has argued "State Secrets" in regard to domestic surveillance more aggressively than evil Bush. He plans to create a "cyber-security czar" and ultimately set the military loose on the Internet. He will maintain the phony "war on terror" and continue to augment the architecture of the police state. Yet we hear nothing from the left. Silence. Because he is their guy.
And though the list of broken promises continues to mount, he is still their guy.
Predictably (and understandably), those on the right have watched in horror as Obama has worked to create a green American version of red China. Many can't wait to run out and vote Republicans into office in 2010 because of this fear -- an attempt to hinder a "communist" agenda by anointing the perceived opposition. What a waste.
When the right gets into power, they may appease their grateful constituency by reforming entitlements and streamlining bloated bureaucratic spending. Of course none of it ever goes away. It merely changes management. And any violation of liberties that may occur in the name of fighting terrorism will be as celebrated on the right as it is feared on the left.
That is, until the left gets voted into power and then tyranny ain't so bad. And no matter -- he's better than the other guy. Right?
The size of the federal bureaucracy grows no matter who is in charge. The size of the debt continues to climb and we continue to surrender our nation's monetary authority to a secretive group of private bankers no matter which party is at the helm. The pervasive growth of the military empire continues to expand and the technocratic surveillance and monitoring system becomes ever-more pervasive. Far less liberty in exchange for far more "security".
"We do not ride on the railroad; it rides upon us. Did you ever think what those sleepers are that underlie the railroad? Each one is a man, an Irishman, or a Yankee man. The rails are laid on them, and they are covered with sand, and the cars run smoothly over them. They are sound sleepers, I assure you. And every few years a new lot is laid down and run over; so that, if some have the pleasure of riding on a rail, others have the misfortune to be ridden upon. And when they run over a man that is walking in his sleep, a supernumerary sleeper in the wrong position, and wake him up, they suddenly stop the cars, and make a hue and cry about it, as if this were an exception. I am glad to know that it takes a gang of men for every five miles to keep the sleepers down and level in their beds as it is, for this is a sign that they may sometime get up again." ~Henry David Thoreau
