Will we ever see politicians in the US for the enemy they are to us?

Corporatism is a system of economic, political, and social organization where social groups or interest groups, such as business, ethnic, farmer, labour, military, or patronage groups, are joined together under a common governing jurisdiction to try to achieve societal harmony and promote coordinated development.[1] Corporatism is based on the sociological concept of

Crony capitalism

Crony capitalism is a pejorative term describing an allegedly capitalist economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between businesspeople and government officials. It may be exhibited by favoritism in the distribution of legal permits, government grants, special tax breaks, and so forth.

Crony capitalism is believed to arise when political cronyism spills over into the business world; self-serving friendships and family ties between businessmen and the government influence the economy and society to the extent that it corrupts public-serving economic and political


An Oligarchy (Greek Ὀλιγαρχία, Oligarkhía) is a form of government where power effectively rests with a small elite segment of society distinguished by royal, wealth, family, military or religious hegemony. The word oligarchy is from the Greek words for "few" (ὀλίγος olígos) and "rule" (ἀρχή arkhē). Such states are often controlled by politically powerful families whose children are heavily conditioned and mentored to be heirs of the power of the oligarchy.[citation needed] Oligarchies have been tyrannical throughout history, being completely reliant on public servitude to exist. Although Aristotle pioneered the use of the term as a synonym for rule by the rich, for which the exact term is plutocracy, oligarchy is not always a rule by wealth, as oligarchs can simply be a privileged group. Some city-states from Ancient Greece were


Plutocracy is rule by the wealthy, or power provided by wealth.

In a plutocracy, the degree of economic inequality is high while the level of social mobility is low. This can apply to a multitude of government systems, as the key elements of plutocracy transcend and often occur concurrently with the features of those

Dif. forms of government.

Besides the usual Dem/Rep, above are just a few labels spoken of politicians. Notice that they share certain aspects? Simply put, those with power and money control the rest! It is of very little importance the label that defines Obama, or any other president/law maker/leader for that matter. The same results are, without fail, obtained by all these men regardless of their political party, personal ideals, or economic strategies. What they appear to believe, or seem to represent, becomes irrelevant when results are literally identical time and again. Like it or not it's them and us and for them to have more, we must have less.

Over and over the working class citizens are kept reassured that "anything's possible" or "hard work pays off" when you're living in "the greatest country in the world", but while true for some, most will never achieve their dreams. Fortune and fame for all is exactly that which is carefully kept out of reach by those of all political/economical ideologies. It directly opposes the ultimate goals of these men despite their apparent strategic posturing. Working people have only one purpose to the Obamas, Clintons and Bushs of the world and that is to patriotically create wealth as hard as you can! Never lose hope in reaching your goals and dreams! Love your country and know that anything worth having will bring with it many obstacles and challenges! Perseverance and the ability to endure suffering are must have traits for Americans!

Their endgame is to make sure you never stop creating wealth, but also never accumulate and possess that wealth for yourselves. They will take care of distributing your hard earned wealth amongst themselves, while continually finding ways to harvest it from those earning it. They have an endless arsenal including first and foremost, LIES!...but also war, vote fraud, failure, corruption, lobbyists, NAFTA, "free" trade, globalization, recession, depression, tax, wage adjustment, fear, illness, interest, fines, fees, licensing, insurance, corrupt courts, on and on and on...whatever it takes. Keep you powerless, but hopeful! Scared, but proud! Make sure you have dreams and aspirations, but also obstacles and set backs.

So, labels like Democrat, Republican, conservative, liberal, left/right, socialist, nationalist, communist, any and all of them, are simply redundant. Some might call Bush a fascist and Obama a socialist, but what do these labels matter when both men equally create your ultimate fate? Aren't all lies directed toward us equally similar, whether from Pelosi or Limbaugh? If you find, like I do, that all these people equally hinder your prosperity, are they not all the same? When you witness, as I have, the unfairness they create in harming and helping interests identically with one another, mostly against our very wishes, do you not see the same opposition? Can we honestly be ignorant enough to argue with each other in support of any of these people?

If what I'm saying is true, are we not embarrassing ourselves? Will we ever drop the ridiculous understanding that any of these people will actually deserve our support and attempt helping us? I'm referring to those in a position to actually make a difference. Not men like Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich and Jesse Ventura. Does the fact that these men likely won't attain this ability not show evidence to my point? From the time this country allowed bankers to control it, wealth and power have manipulated its citizenry. Look back and you will see all the same methods applied over and over. Debt, inflation, repossession, wage suppression, wealth redistribution and even bailouts to the privileged! No matter the label held, they've always managed to keep you in debt, smother your wages, confiscate accumulated wealth, and made you start over again. So many times that to still fall for it is quite humiliating!

I am bumping this thread in hopes to get some discussion? This is important and needs to be common knowledge. I know it's not as interesting as Paul McCartney secretly being an alien from Neptune, but please find time for this as well.

In short...

Yes. But it will be too late.
