Welcome to the circus, an act put on for you and me to make us feel that we have some real choice for the next President of the USA. We don't, and I will attempt to show why I feel this to be true. I will preface this article by saying to you, the reader, that one of the primary reasons that I expect a tirade from readers who vehemently disagree with me is that in order to accept my thesis, it requires a radical shift of belief. I suspect that many readers will have a hard time crossing this Rubicon. For if you, the reader, are to accept what I am saying, the bottom falls out, and you will be left with a creepy and perhaps hopeless feeling of unimportance as a voter. I crossed that Rubicon many years ago.
Professor Carroll Quigley, who taught US History at Georgetown University, and was Bill Clinton's self-professed political mentor, wrote in the excellent book Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time:
When the business interests … pushed through the first installment of civil service reform in 1883, they expected that they would be able to control both political parties equally,"Indeed, some of them intended to contribute to both and to allow an alternation of the two parties in public office in order to conceal their own influence, inhibit any exhibition of independence of politicians, and allow the electorate to believe that they were exercising their own free choice.
He then went on to say, "The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers," he wrote. "Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can 'throw the rascals out' at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy."
Have you ever noticed how so many Americans are now saying that they are tired of the politics in Washington, and how similar the two parties have become? So much that the American electorate is now comprised of about 40% independents. I am postulating as did Quigley that this has been done on purpose.
I will argue in this article that the whole Presidential election process is nothing more than a charade, to make you think that you are living in a free country with free, open, and fair elections. You don't. This is done so that you, the voter, do not get too restless, and accept the outcome as democratically produced.
First a bit about voter fraud. The Internet has been rife with not only allegations, but actual proof of fraud at the polls for numerous years. At the bottom of this article are some videos that show this to be true.
I maintain that in order for government – in this case, state governments since they are sovereign agents of the United States of America – to be valid they MUST assure that the voter's ballot is accurate, this being the most important function of a free and democratically elected government. They have not done so, and quite frankly have moved in the opposite direction, the paperless, unverifiable voting machines being a prime example.
The first video shows Clinton Eugene Curtis, an election machine programmer, testifying before the U.S House of Representatives Democrats on the Judiciary Committee on December 13, 2004. The second one was made at Princeton University showing Diebold voting machine flaws.
For those of you who do believe that your vote counts when using a touch-screen voting machine that leaves no paper trail, and whose source code is held in secret, by the company itself, so that NO ONE other than the corporation itself can accurately determine the validity of an election, I have some prime forest land for sale in the Sahara desert you may be interested in.
The whole structure of our particular form of government is based on distrust — distrust of individuals, and institutions — this is primarily why we have the checks and balances that we do and a three-pronged type of government, being executive, legislative and judicial. Unfortunately in this author's opinion they have all been compromised.
The charade continues on a nightly basis on the television set, with all of the various pundits and their excitement about how this particular Presidential election is so wide-open. Poppycock. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have Wolf Blitzer, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Chris Matthews, Dave (Bohemian Grove) Gergen, Frank (gag me) Luntz, and a whole litany of talking heads for your amusement, and to make you feel as if there is really an exciting election going on. Unfortunately most people buy into it. This does not make it true. One day a long time ago most people in the world who were educated believed that the sun revolved around the earth. This did not make it true.
It is the old proverbial "good cop/bad cop" being foisted upon us all on a daily basis. There is a reason that the Democrats in Congress have not stopped funding the War. Just as there is a good reason that such luminaries as Henry Waxman and Nancy (give 'em hell) Pelosi do not support impeachment or listen to the electorate. They don't have to, they do not work for you are me, as you have been led to believe. However you are more than FREE to continue to believing in the charade that has been foisted upon you. In fact they hope that you do!!
As long as the sheeple remain asleep we will have more of the same. Perhaps most of you reading this have enough to eat, can still occasionally afford to put gasoline in your SUVs, and provided you have the proper documentation, can fly where you want to. Some of you may even be able to afford health insurance. Amazing in the most powerful and richest nation on Earth. We are the proverbial frog in the pot, slowly heating up, imperceptible to the average frog. Wake up, America, before it is too late. Hop out!
The only person in the public arena running for President who has had the audacity to stand up for freedom and liberty is Dr. Ron Paul. For this he has been ignored by the media, kept out of a national debate, accused of racism, called a crackpot, and generally been treated with disdain by the mainstream media. I watched, at the last Presidential debate hosted by the "fair and balanced" network, people such as John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, and Mitt (haven't caught a ball) Romney openly sneering at Dr. Paul when he was speaking. He dares to challenge the status quo, such as how money is made out of thin air, or why we should not be the world's policeman. The act of sneering with open contempt at a candidate who has raised more money without corporate sponsors than either of them should give us all reason to shudder.
You can tell what the candidates are like by the company they keep. Below are a few of the "top" advisors – or, as I prefer to call them, "handlers" – working for our current top three contenders:
John McCain: James (attack Iran, Iraq, Syria, and anyone else he does not like) Woolsey, Richard (expose covert CIA agent Valerie Plame) Armitage, William (PNAC founder) Kristol, Henry (Chile overthrower) Kissinger, and Colin (lie to the UN) Powell. Yup, that McCain is a real "liberal Republican" alright.
Barack Obama: Zbigniew (Grand Chessboard world conqueror) Brzezinski and Richard (I am so sorry for 9/11) Clarke.
Hillary Clinton: Madeline (Waco and dead children in Iraq okay by me) Albright, Sandy (shoplifter of state secrets) Berger, Gen. Wesley ( I hate Posse Comitatus) Clarke, and Richard (Bilderberg) Holbrook.
Finally, being the coinspiracy theorist that I am, I would like to point out that each and every one of the above handlers, including the candidates or their spouses, all belong to that beloved American institution, the CFR. I welcome your comments.
Let the games begin!
