For awhile now this has been the main mantra of many here...Socialism....I did it myself when I first began posting here on the political forums
almost a year ago...after the 2 main candidates were chosen to run for President.
In that time my knowledge and opinions of our entire political system..and how it really works...has completely changed and has morphed into something
that I didn't see before.
Socialistic policies have always existed...in fact...I don't believe we've ever really had a true capitalistic country.
So let's bring this all down to what it really is....
As quoted from Dictionary.com...the definition of corporatism....
the principles, doctrine, or system of corporative organization of a political unit, as a city or state.
In reality, capitalism and socialism is nothing but a disguise....and misdirection by both sides of the political spectrum.
What are the facts? Congressman do not write 1000 page bills...their staffers do....and where do their staffers get their information and ideas for
LOBBYIST. Lobbyist who rail in person at politicians offices, dumping thousands of dollars into their coffers with campaign
contributions...befriending them....to get them to sway to their side.
Lobbyist from banks, oil companies, energy companies, health companies, ALL COMPANIES.
So where is your voice? Can you go to a politicians office to talk about what matters to you? Better yet, do you have the money to dump 50,000
dollars into their campaign to help get them to listen to you?
Most of us can do neither. So what does that leave you?
You are left with a corporately owned media...owned by major corporations....who don't even PAY TO LOBBY FOR YOUR OPINION...YOU PAY THEM TO DO IT.
Essentially what our politicians have become are LOBBYIST FOR BIG BUSINESS. They are trying to convince you of something...saving/losing
jobs....saving/losing tax money.....gaining/losing debt.....entering/leaving war.
You don't have a voice. The only real people with voices are the ones with all of the money...those are the people that dictate and change all of
the laws that infringe on our rights.
Corporations push the loss of our rights THROUGH our government....in reality it's not just a bunch of evil politicians who are trying to make you
slaves....it's business and their undeniable influence upon them.
What do most Americans want....that they have not gotten...and have screamed about for years?
1. Our borders are not protected. Illegal immigration has been out of control.
2. NAFTA. The massive job loss created by NAFTA has been nothing but DESTRUCTIVE to the American worker and our economy as many of our productive
and factory jobs are now gone.
3. War. Who doens't want the war to end?
4. Debt. Why in the hell can't they get it under control?
5. Most of all........we just want to live a good damn life...to live as prosperously and freely as humanly possible...yet we see our freedoms
attacked almost everyday.
Since none of this has happened...none of these things have changed.....who benefits from it?
Illegal immigration...CHEAP ILLEGAL WORKERS.....NO TAXES for said companies to pay them.
NAFTA. Since our tariffs on imports are extremely low, businesses that would have stayed here are now gone...for cheaper labor. Once
again...benefitting big business.
War. Benefits the military industrial complex...and those who pull the strings behind the scenes.
Debt. A perpetual constant to cover expenses of outrageous spending and war...all the while trying to cover it with inflation...a hidden tax on us
I don't know if many others here see all of this for what it is yet or not....or what it is i'm trying to get across.
What i'm trying to say that Obama isn't the end all, be all of evil. He cannot do anything without the approval of corporations....he just
Whether you see it as good or bad on what he does....he does not have the power that many of you seem to think he has.
The lobbyist are alive in well in Washington...they didn't go away when Obama took office...and they will never leave.....
I have many more opinoins on this...but I will cut them short for now as i've probably gone on too long already.
Would love to see some thoughts on this...and what do you feel is really happening...
