This blog has only has a handful of readers, which are probably as well informed as any. Even if that is the case and only a few people read this message, I’m going to issue a warning regarding the November 7th mid-term elections.
An incredible amount of spin and hubris is already being hyped up by the Bush Administration (and the dipshit himself) and the MSM regarding the “election”. We are already being warned that Hugo Chavez is behind some of the Democratic “swing”. This truly unbelievable bullshit story is being spun up by the White House to try and lay “blame” for their failures.
Moreover, we’re already hearing multiple stories of voter “purgings” and rigged election machines and the same old bullshit from the Bush Administration that if you don’t vote Republican, you’re voting for terrorism.
Like past elections, voter fraud is running rampant. Expect much more of this and their reported stories post-election.
I’ll make this plain as day – if you do choose (as is your right) to vote, for Republicans, you are most certainly going to be choosing to vote for more terrorism and more business as usual. We must never forget that it was the neo-cons that created 9/11, the evidence is now overwhelming that the US government was behind the World Trade Center attacks (89% now believe there was a massive coverup). The blame lies with Dick Cheney as the mastermind.
And if you choose to vote Democrat, you will also be choosing business as usual. Our cowardly Congress hasn’t the spine to do diddly squat (regardless of the party majority) about all the evil deeds and malfeasance behind done daily now by our government. They are the problem. They gave that monster in chief everything he wanted – two illegal wars, a failed investigative commission on 9/11, the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, torture, rendition, 665,000 dead civilians, over 6,000 dead Americans, 50,000 injured and maimed, – they gave him everything, utterly failing to reign in this out of control Administration one iota.
The power exercised by the Bush Administration will not be relenquished easily – no matter what the outcome is of the (s)election. It is a lie to believe the paid politicians can save America or Americans. They can facilitate our freedoms and our way of life and even easier, take it all away at the stroke of a pen. But they cannot “make us free”.
Freedom will either beat in the heart of every American breast, or it won’t. Freedom cannot be bought or sold, legislated or regulated. This is exactly what is happening in Iraq, as the Iraqi freedom fighters are repelling the occupiers. They refuse to submit to American domination and authority. We can relabel this and them anything we want – insurgents, terrorists, democracy, or even “liberation”, but it’s plain as day that the people there do no want our brand of “liberation”. They want their country back from the American terrorists.
And so should Americans. We need to take our country back from the neo-con fascist terrorists. Our political leadership has become so corrupt, so evil and so dastardly in deed that they have openly committed open warfare against Americans, killing thousands of them on national television. The ink wasn’t even dry on the Military Commissions Act, permitting torture and rendition against Americans, when Bush signed into law the suspension of Posse Comitatus with the John Warner Defense Authorization Act.
President Bush seized this unprecedented power on the very same day that he signed the equally odious Military Commissions Act of 2006. In a sense, the two laws complement one another. One allows for torture and detention abroad, while the other seeks to enforce acquiescence at home, preparing to order the military onto the streets of America. Remember, the term for putting an area under military law enforcement control is precise; the term is “martial law.”
Their can be only one possible reason for this new legislation. And lest we forget, the Congress and the Democratic party are complicit to these evils. A new (s)election won’t change anything.
Sure, this blog is supposed to be about sustainable living and common sense and I’d love to getting back to those issues, but how sustainable is it really going to be when you’re living under martial law and tyranny? When any American can be dragged from his home in broad daylight under the color of law and put into an internment camp or tortured? When the American Congress does absolutely NOTHING to stop what is going on?
We can document the collapse, the failing environment, global warming and other natural disasters and ecological trigger points forever, but to what end? If politicians are ignoring these factors and they are actively conspiring to destroy YOU, what should our response actually be?
There are only two possible reponses, ancient as humanity itself. Fight or flight.
Fight these rotten bastards tooth and nail, or pack your bags and get the hell out of town. But falling victim (again and again and again) that the s(election) cycle will somehow pull the magical rabbit out the hat and fix our problems is a fools game. We are long past the point where democracy works. We are long past the point where voting works. We are now at the point where tyranny is working quite well and about to get much, much worse.
The warning of Novemeber 7th is exactly this: expect nothing but more of the same. Lies, coverup, hyperbole, hubris, media spin, complicity, obsfucation, fabrication, failed investigations, more death, more torture, more needless waste of human lives and even more ominious legislation designed to destroy YOU.
Don’t expect any salvation, any hope or any “fixes”. You can expect a huge amount of time, money and effort will be spent trying to solve these problems, but I wouldn’t expect any resolution at all.
If there is (ever) going to be any resolution, it won’t be done by an election.
