So I don't usually respond to this type of thread, but this time I think I will. I know what's going on. I know about the serious dangers in these
time we all face. I know those reading between the lines, scared about the future are basically right. And on the political spectrum, I'm a liberal.
So what I want to do is take you inside my mind, as I read your thread. I want to reach out to you for understanding. I want to tell you what I see as
the good, the bad, and the ugly in your post.
So you talk about the movement of America into a new type of country, where we call ourselves "The Homeland" and whole new set of laws apply,
comparing it to past tyrannies and I basically nod - this guy knows what he's talking about
. Also at the end, I hear you talking about
federal overreach into states rights. We have that to a lesser extent in my state, where we voted to defund the Mexican drug cartels (who sold us part
of our pot, a billions dollars a year industry) and sell our own, to fund our state programs. Yet the DEA (federal) still talks like its a federal
crime. So I feel you. That's the good.
The bad is when you start saying Obama plans a socialist utopia. Let me put this in the clearest terms possible: The dangerous powers that are growing
in this country are NOT conspiring to give you free medical care and a welfare check (socialism). Their plans are much worse. Socialism is part of the
last century, and there's a only a few countries left that practice it in its red form (Cuba, North Korea), and some others that practice it in a
milder form like Sweden. High taxes and free benefits for the unemployed are not what's coming. Its all about diverting taxes to people who are
already incredibly rich and powerful, so you can look forward to high taxes with a big helping of jack #. That's the bad.
The downright ugly is when you start talking about Obama's birth certificate. Have you read anything about the CIA's interventions in smaller
countries during the cold war? Have you seen how those coups, how those proxy state power arrangements play out? It looks like this: Some US players
come in with a lot of money, and the ability to deliver lucrative (sweetheart) contracts to the country. They find a local boy with some legitimacy as
the leader and an impeccable record, and they craft a deal with him about how his policies toward the US will be, so he can get the money, support,
and business deals. Then they work behind the scenes to get him in. They DON'T get an American, tell the public of the foreign country he's one of
them, and then go "OH NOOOOOO" like the crooks from Home Alone when they realize they forgot to fake the birth certificate. If the CIA needs any
document, any record put in place, pretty much anywhere in the world, it gets put into place and its perfect. That's child's play for the people who
direct politics in these banana Republics.
But when you stand there screaming that the US (not a banana republic) was subverted by a conspiracy THAT DUMB that they couldn't even fake a birth
certificate, let alone get a US born proxy
to do what they needed to do, while the conspiracies that take down much smaller countries are a
million times more competent...
That, my friend, is ugly.
So now you know, how a liberal views a post like this...
