I think I just became a Ron Paul fan.
I still don't like his ideas on economics, or his Libertarian proposals that 300 million people can just let the free market solve every problem -- I
mean, look at the CIA; that's been BOUGHT by free market influence.
Anyway, I love it when Ron Paul gets going on the OBVIOUS. Bless him.
It isn't like anyone here can't figure this out -- it's just that, of the few thousand people sent to Washington under the excuse that they
REPRESENT THE PEOPLE -- we have only one or two CRAZY enough to tell the truth.
I voted for Ross Perot in the 90's not because I thought he could run anything -- I voted for him because the OBVIOUS TRUTH he stated; "You
reporters keep asking me if I've got a plan for the economy -- the truth is, we've got all sorts of bright people in Washington with all sorts of
plans, but not one of them will ever be implemented because the Lobbyists decide what gets done."
When Sibel Edmonds, tried to blow the whistle on the Bush administration, selling WMD technology to countries on the "axis of evil" list (among,
many, many crimes), she mentioned that Dennis Hastert was working for Turkey against US interests. But nobody at the FBI was interested -- in fact
they wanted her to shut up. When that didn't work, she was pretty much forced into protective custody because her former employers were working to
smear her or worse (remember the DC Madam hanged herself a week before her client list could be made public).
Well now Denny Hastert is a 7 figure consultant for guess who? Yeah, that' Sibel is makin' stuff up. But wow, Turkey really likes all those smart
things Hastert has on his mind -- don't they?
The CIA and our politicians, protect American interests only because they overlap all the corporate/security interests that have bought and paid for
them. Why would China or Dubai invade America when they sell us Lead-painted toys and we send them nuclear experts to build their their own toys? But
the reverse is also true, few Chinese leaders are anything but controllable puppets with photos of them and whatever is embarrassing, and would not
put their country's interests above getting their own retreat in the South of France.
So the world is safe not from anyone defending our countries, but because there is nobody in any of these countries, doing anything but making weapons
so that contractors can get paid, and resources made cheap. As air gets more polluted, they will help companies sell us Oxygen and own our water that
falls on our heads, and the powerful nations will appear to be still struggling with proxy wars and terrorists, but it will be just the same show as
we have now.
The CIA doesn't knock over Latin American Democracies for a US firm like AT&T anymore to get cheap coppery. Companies like AT&T are global and don't
show profits in the USA anymore.
God forbid, that there were actual terrorists fighting for a religious cause; every one of these causes gets co-opted. And the Evangelicals in America
protest Indians opening a Casino and the Taliban buries a woman alive in the ground because she went to school because ignorance keeps the Opium trade
healthy. They are just as co-opted as our CIA. And the School of the Americas trains most of the military leaders in Latin America to defend cheap
labor for multinationals.
If you can't compromise someone -- they don't get promoted or they fall in a small plane accident.
Spineless, flawed people are a lot easier to control.
You have to be impressed however, that in a strange way this works, and it's comforting to know that China won't conquer us because they will be
just as corrupted as we are and some other nation will be used for outsourcing as soon as their people start wanting something in return for all that
"sacrifice" to export cheap things to the US.
