In a way, believing in the left-right paradigm is comparable to being plugged into the Matrix. It is two football teams, two rival gangs. But we all somehow rationalise it, as if our gang is justified. I know because not three months ago I was there. I sat in front of my computer watching the US election results come in (McCain didn't give his concession until about 4.30 am UK time) and I was delighted Obama won.
Fastforward to December, and Obama's appointments. All Clinton, Bush, Israel lobby people. Every one of 'em, neo-cons or globalists, whatever you want to call them. Doesn't really matter.
The Change was bull. Guantanamo will go, but secret camps/illegal detainment practices are carried out throughout the US and around the world anyway. Gitmo was just the public figurehead of state-sponsored torture - which is extremely dangerous, because 'mainline' left-partisans really think closing Guantanamo Bay will end US illegal detainment programs. (probably not fair only to implicate US secret ops in this; but since I am not the all-seeing eye, I don't know how many other groups are involved.)
The economic Change is indeed rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic: bailouts, socialism, corporate welfare, inflation, debt. And a recession thus becomes a depression, yay! Not to mention the inevitable dollar collapse that is imminent - presumably the Ameros are already prepared...
None of the politicians who cater for the sheeple mainline mention that at the heart of the causes of the economic crisis is the policy of central banking and the fractional reserve system. This criminal fraud, possibly the greatest in history, needs to end. Alarmist? Misguided? Maybe...
“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” —Henry Ford
The final nail in the coffin for any sign of Obama being substantially different from Bush, Clinton, Bush... is that his Israel stance is just as identical and weak as any previous Prez. Which is roughly: 'we're going to fund your military, let you blackmail us with nuclear threats, then defend you when you start unjustifiable conflicts'.
The point of all this? That the two main parties in America certainly (and I would argue Labour and the Conservatives in Britain too) are essentially the same, with little more than token, superficial differences in their messages. Yet they continue to be capable of manipulating and dividing the people down tribal lines. Are people that shallow and easily tricked?
I was for a time. But I woke up once it was obvious Obama was a fraud. The danger is, this false dawn will either brainwash an entire generation beyond repair, or disillusion them with politics for life. And the last thing the Western world needs is even LESS citizen responsibility than we already have.
Oh, and here are some Obama Youth:
