The United States of America is symbolic of the Roman Empire (just look at the architectural style of the White House and many other government buildings). They rose quickly to the largest Empire in the World just like we have. Yet due to the stupid and greedy nature of always wanting more, they also destroyed themselves, which is exactly where we are headed. Growth within equality is limitless, yet when people are divided against each other and themselves, one side benefits far more. This leads to imbalance, which inevitably leads to collapse.
Our President is elected into office by the people, yet currently the only way to become elected is through an incredibly expensive campaign. This puts any chance of getting elected out of the reach of most people. By having to campaign the prospective president must align themselves with wealthy and powerful corporations, which is where the majority of the money is tied up. Thus, the corporations exercise more influence within the government than the people the Federal government is supposed to represent.
The new Michael Moore movie “Capitalism: A Love Story”, explains what really is occurring behind the scenes, that the majority of the people are not even aware of. It explains that the heads of the U.S. Treasury department were made up almost exclusively of former executives from the Goldman-Sachs Corporation. This is not something new. Ronald Regan is the most well known corporate puppet. He had been a prominent actor that the corporations threw money at to have elected, thus becoming their toy. There is even a video snippet showing the president giving a speech where the former CEO of Meryl-Lynch elbows him and tells him to speed it up ( YouTube - Speed It Up ). This is the power that we have given the corporations by playing into their games.
What most people don't know is that 9/11 was an inside job by our own government. Even if you ignore the fact that not one, not two, but three steel buildings fell due to fire for the first time in history, there's still an enormous amount of loose ends. An in-depth investigation should have been carried out, yet the rubble was immediately shipped to China to be destroyed. Even the heads of the 9/11 Commission have come out saying the government isn't telling people the whole story. The Bush administration had plenty of reasons to want 9/11 to occur. First and foremost, if you want to pass oppressive and illegal laws, you have to keep the people in fear. It's no coincidence every time something like this happens, they chip away a little more at the Bill of Rights. Then there's the heroin, which the Taliban was actually halting the production of. The U.S. propaganda machine has actually been trying to convince people drugs supported terrorism, the reality is that the U.S. troops going over to Afghanistan has been one of the greatest boons to heroin production. The CIA has been caught trafficking drugs before, and now a top Afghan minister has come out saying they're doing it again. So there's the fear mongering, billions of dollars made from the war, and drug trafficking, all of which directly benefit Bush and friends from 9/11, but there's also the fact that the destruction of the WTC Towers destroyed an enormous amount of financial records. Want to investigate the events leading up to the current “Banking Crisis”? Too bad, many if not most of the records have been conveniently destroyed. Plus the CIA was able to destroy a whole bunch of their dirty laundry there as well.
It has been proven that only 5 of the largest corporate banks needed a bail-out, the other banks were forced to take the money so that it did not look like a big scheme. When the original bailout was shot down they made it look as though we would go into an economic recession if we did not help them out. It was constructed to induce fear in the general population so that the corporations could get away with everything without being noticed too much. The Bush administration sold out the people to the banks, and now the Obama administration is poised to sell the people out to the insurance companies. It used to be if a company got too powerful, they were too big to exist, now we're sold the lie that we depend upon these monopolies and they're too big to fail.
Right now Obama wants to send more troops overseas to secure everything before withdrawing from the middle-east. This is pure stupidity! Our troops are being used by the corporations to secure the oil rights and to traffic drugs... and this is what we are supporting? Our men and women are giving their lives as puppets because of how corrupt our government has become. They make it seem as though you will be a hero serving and protecting your country if you join the military, they know how to advertise... that's for sure. Having foreign troops in Afghanistan and Iraq hasn't prevented terrorism, it's encouraged it.
The local police force is no better. Men and women believe that they will be saving people's lives if they become a police officer, when in reality all they are doing is enforcing the rules of our government and the corporations. The police and the judges are the biggest threat to most people's basic rights, not the enforcers like they're sworn to be. Stupidity is being enforced while in truth they are making lives difficult for those whom will not conform to what society believes is best. They want us to stay ignorant and separate, they want us to continue to judge each other because they know what would occur if as a people we would come together. The government would belong to the people again, and so many of them would be out of business. Many use the excuse that they're just “following orders” yet the politicians, the judges and the police benefit directly from oppressing the people. If they hand out more fines, they can afford bigger raises and they get promoted faster. This is a system where the government directly benefits from the oppression of the people. We wont even go into what a circus the whole judicial system is.
When this occurs within a civilization the people have the RIGHT to replace the government with a system that actually works for the people (refer to the Declaration of independence and the Constitution) ( YouTube - The Declaration of Independence ). If it no longer serves the people, it needs to be torn down and rebuilt in a way where EVERYONE has total equality. It's time to make a stand together as a people and demand our freedom back! We make up the majority of the population in this country. It's time to stand together with one voice and say NO to the government and corporations being in control and say YES to the return of our freedom and equality!
