Greetings ATS. Here are some ruminations over recent political headlines, with a few questions to ponder.
Near the end of 2008, it would have been difficult to believe that the people of the United States of America would ever
accept another Bush or
Clinton in the White House.
The illusion of "left vs. right" had seemed to give way a bit. George W. Bush was seen as a willing puppet for the military industrial complex's
resident demon-incarnate and international war criminal Dick Cheney.
Bill Clinton was seen as semi-successful President economically, but a moral and ethical sleazebag. Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared at least
partially complicit in Bill's douche-baggery, as long as it didn't interfere too much with her evil goals of political domination.
Trails of corruption and unseemly grime followed both "dynasties" leaving a foul odor in the incestuous pit of American politics.
It seemed implausible that even the power elite
could sway public opinion enough to allow anyone, absolutely ANYONE from these vile, insidious
bloodlines back in the high office.
But now, just 7 years later, we see news like this:
Poll: Jeb Bush surges to 2016 GOP frontrunner
2016: A Bush-Clinton rematch?
Huh? How did we get here? Did we really get here? I don't think we did "get here" at all.
What in the world
could possibly coerce the people to accept a choice between Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush as the next POTUS
without there being a revolution?
So you see, TPTB are patiently manipulative. Barack Obama was placed in office at just the right time to further some of the larger goals in the
By 2016, all the sheeple will again be cheering for what they perceive as the lesser of two evils, all the while believing that they
somehow have a choice.
How are there still people ignorant enough to believe that we live in a democracy, or that your vote counts for anything?
The more surreal and impossible it seems to the sane, the more reality converges with utter ludicracy.
