I may just vote Ron Paul but I still don't agree with many of his policies. Maybe our government cannot help but that does not mean there can be a system where The government functions and does its job. If Ron Paul is truly serous he must look into new economic policy such as Green Government. We cannot just go back to the 19 hundreds. But I do believe we are entering The Golden Age so Maybe Ron is part of change.
Just my take on it.

14 presidents before the first President GW?
I don't follow you.
well i don't mean to be smart, but maybe it's time for you to brush up on the history of your country. there were, in fact, 14 individuals that carried the title President before George Washington came down the road. and We The People do not elect the President.
now...for a bunch of people who know all about Elenin and The Galactic Federation of Light and the Reptians and Draconians and What Really Happened On 9/11....but don't understand the basic functions of their own government is a truly sad state of affairs.
Why is the Tea Party so against raising corporate taxes and taxes on people who make more than 250K/year but are perfectly ok with raising taxes on the middle and lower classes

Are you...agreeing with that sentiment (the Lenin quote)? Because you might be more of a socialist than you think.
That's Lenin on Marx, FYI. The Three Sources and Three Component Parts of Marxism by V.I. Lenin, published in 1913
Edit to add:
There's left and right then there's up and down. Communism can be both left and right, socialism can be the same. Did you know there are libertarian socialists? They are essentialy anarchists, but they do exist. You can be a socialist without being a statist.
Stalin didn't believe in or practice international communism. He forced conformance and created social orders within the communist party (see Orwell's 1984).
You sound like a leftist, I'm not entirely certain on your social ideals but on your economic ideals alone you could be a leftist.

It is a well known fact that the tea party is corrupted. It is just a representation or face or actors hired by TPTB to spread the illussion that there is a "movement" out there defending us. While sending the real movements into the shadows hidden from the public. This is TPTB way of controlling libertarians.
I am all for government, but when it gets to the point that they decide what I should put inside my own body, from what drugs I should take, what I should eat or even drink. We have a major problem and liberty is not longer liberty.
All of this is happening for big bucks.edit on 31-8-2011 by RisenAngel77 because: (no reason given)
Probably the most difficult task in this work will be to get across to the reader what is really an elementary observation: that the objective of The Order is neither "left" nor "right." "Left" and "right" are artificial devicces to bring about change, and the extremes of political left and political right are vital elements in a process of controlled change.
The answer to this seeming political puzzle lies in Hegelian logic. Remember that both Marx and Hitler, the extremes of "left" and "right" presented as textbook enemies, evolved out of the same philosophical system: Hegelianism. That brings screams of intellectual anguish from Marxists and Nazis, but is well known to any student of political systems.
The dialectical process did not originate with Marx as Marxists claim, but with Fichte and Hegel in late 18th and early 19th century Germany. In the dialectical process a clash of opposites brings about a synthesis. For example, a clash of political left and political right brings about another political system, a synthesis of the two, niether left nor right. This conflict of opposites is essential to bring about change.
In the Hegelian system conflict is essential. Furthermore, for Hegel and systems based on Hegel, the State is absolute. The State requires complete obedience from the individual citizen. An individual does not exist for himself in these so-called organic systems but only to perform a role in the operation of the State.
We trace the extraordinary Skull and Bones influence in a major Hegelian conflict: Naziism vs. Communism. Skull and Bones members were in the dominant decision-making positions -- Bush, Harriman, Stimson, Lovett, and so on -- all Bonesmen, and instrumental in guiding the conflict through use of "right" and "left." They financed and encouraged the growths of both philosophies and controlled the outcome to a significant extent.
So it doesn't matter from the viewpoint of The Order whether it is termed left, right, Democratic, Republican, secular or religious - so long as the discussion is kept within the framework of the State and the power of the State.
