As an Australian i'll hope you'll forgive my lack of knowledge and interest in Ron Paul.
No problem, I don't see why any other country would care about American elections.. most Americans don't? Besides, the whole world knows who Bush
is, I haven't a clue who the PM of Australia is.
I have seen Endgame though and i have to say that it was quite interesting but left me with these question......WHY WAIT......why let the population
get to 6 billion plus( and counting)...... and then go about your plan to reclaim the earth and cull the planet to "around 500 million".
Endgame was a movie done on nearly no actual intellectual investigation.. just the rantings of Alex Jones, who has shown repeatedly that hes a
If this group is so powerful, so influential, cashed up and pulling the strings surely the suppression of around 1 billion( early twentieth century
pop.) would have been be alot easier then 6 billion, surely world wars I and II would have been enough of a crisis( why wait for a scheme like global
The basis for Alex's argument is an AGE OLD prejudices.. that all people with money are working together to suppress those without money.
Its complete crap.
While many rich people are jerks, and could care less about anyone else, there are just as many who give a good portion of their wealth to help people
out, who opperate institutions to assist the people and so forth.. And all rich people still have to compete in their business to be the richest.. its
still about #1.. not everyone else.
The other basis for Alex's argument is that all rich people are mindless satanist zombies out to sacrifice the human population..
Ironic, that to become as successful as they are, they had to be independent, risk taking, free thinking and revolutionary in their field to get to
the top..... but according to Alex, once at the top, Satan takes over and they turn into mindless zombies for the mythical NWO.
Alex won't tell you that by shouting down the works of rich people, he himself has got pretty damn wealthy......
And I have never heard of an Alex Jones Foundation for little kids or the disabled..... have you?
Hes a world class prick.
I mean those families tried inbreeding....great gene pooling there.....look at the experiments.....hitler, china's one child policy......wow....huge
successes, and how does the Iraq mess fit in there.
Inbreeding families.. another myth about the ultra rich. The whole concept of inbreeding (cousins) is only about 100 years old anyways, and it was
typical amongst many families, not just the rich.. Anyways.. I had a cousin marry into a super rich family.. not because she was wealthy, or that she
liked the guy because he had money.. but because they actually had a relationship not based on material goods... and guess what?
You might be surprised.. but rich people are quite normal. They just have money!
Give me a 100k and I am not going to change.. I might buy a new
car and eat at better restaurants, but I am still going to be based on my raising, you know?
Think of this mate..
6 billion people.. all the rich people get together and they kill 5.5 billion.
500 million are left to shop at Walmart, Mcdonalds, and invest in banks, take out mortgages......
All those rich people? Now dirt poor.
Also, the change in wealth is always changing hands.. there may be dominate families, but they have not been around forever, and will not be. If I
have a great idea and implement it.. guess what? Now I am the elite.. for what ever that is worth. Of course, Alex will say I am the devil because I
To many holes in this story for my liking but great food for thought. I hope you guys can fill in the blanks for me, am i over-simplifying things.
Essentially.. Alex gets rich off of exploiting other peoples hate for the wealthy.. becoming wealthy himself.. hes a scam artist.
The rich will always have power. But who should have power and influence?
Please.. I can just imagine how the world would be in Joe Shmoe ran the world. The ignorant and uneducated in charge.. ironically, that is supposed
to be the basis of Democracy isn't it.. for the people, by the people, all that BS.. people prefer power and responsibility in the hands of the few
EDIT: to fix my horrible spelling.
