    I find this particularly interesting, considering the source of the article. I admire the writer for speaking out so honestly. Still, this is scary... :eek:

    I would attempt to highlight the key points but all of it is dead on. This guy confronts the problem in sentence after sentence. It's amazing. Read it all... :eek:

    Is this anything we didn't already know was happening? Discuss! :eek:

    The Russians have seen all this crap before. They can recognize it for what it is. Too bad the american sheeple are too brainwashed to notice. Meh, they don;t care anyhow. As long as they can bask in their mindnumbing TV shows and drive their SUVs, then all is well in the world.:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    This guy hit the nail right square on the head. Anybody that would take the time to look and listen to barry and his cronies would see it too.

    I follow most of what heispredicting,although I still have hope (not "HOPE" but real hope) that we can recover from this blunder.

    However, I wonder where he is getting this statement from:

    and

    I don't know everything that went on during the Cold War, but I have no knowledge of our "sponsoring" the Soviet regime.

    Pops, for he first comment about Wall Street and the Marxists, I'm not sure that the translation is correct. Perhaps he meant his own stock market? I too wondered what he meant about Wall Street when I first heard the commentary on local radio. :confused:

    As far as the 70 years comment, I'm sure he considers the socialist experiment in the USSR to be a testing ground for how to effectively take over the West with the same principles. I'm not sure he's wrong on that front... Our banking elite would like nothing more than to destroy American wealth for their own gain.

    The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

    So far, that is exactly what is going on.

    He certainly has the language down pat, very precise in saying what most "americans" cannot even fathom nevermind speak to.
    Insert "westerners" above because the wimpering will be coming from any country hiding in the U.S. shadow as well as any afforded U.S. favour.

    I was going to start a thread, perhaps in the Gen.Disc. asking for a bit of a history lesson on Winston Churchill, and how he railed in the house as a Member of Parliament on the dangers of Hitler and to considerable derision from his contemporaries, and for how long he did so before the invasion of Poland.
    Meanwhile, he contemplated actions to be taken, by an unprepared British empire.
    Any volunteers?

    By the way, even a drunk Russian should recognize a move towards total state control of it's Citizens, in fact they should be defacto experts.

    Gunhugger I don't know.
    Everyone around me seems preoccupied with hiding in a safe routine, either too scared to contemplate an uncertain reality, or are too far gone to care.
    I'm preparing for whatever, cause I always have.

    GH, the lesson I have is to educate everyone you can about the issues. Do so in such a way that you don't sound like you're a loon but just tell the truth. Read up on current events pieces and you'll be loaded for bear with information. 2010 could be a very interesting election year. :)

    Folks, the systematic raping and pillaging of the American middle class has not only came at the hands of the commiecrats, it has came on the safe watch, so we thought, of the Repulicans. All politicians do a good cop, bad cop routine and put on a good enough show to make us believe it. A baby faced, big smiling country boy salesman put the pants on a lot of his insurance clients in my hometown years ago. He would have made a good honest salesman and could have been honest is his own right and made a good living, but for whatever reason, he was what he really was, and that is what we have in DC today, and on Wall Street, In AIG, In Union leaders, in the Corporate offices of big companies, the heads of pension trusts, anyone who controls our money. They are all in collusion and covering for one another and have become a group of elitests who rob the working folks. The guise of socialism is just an excuse to futher smokescreen the real intent of robbery and to point fingers without any intent of getting the real wrong doers, just putting on a show. A few who fall from grace are served up for public display and punishment. Quite simply, we live in a country of powerful crooks every direction you look, and I'm sure they all would like to disarm us. Even the war on drugs has become such a symbiotic relationship between enforcement and the drug kingpins that neither could survive without the other, just a smokescreen to allow it to continue. If I sound paranoid, you can bet your sweet bippy I am. Not near enough folks have gone to jail over the abuses that have happened over the past 8-9 years, but a lot of folks have become weathy with ill gotten gain. The only saving words I have, is that God does not bless ill gotten gain and their house of cards is about to come down.

    I have always kept up with what is going on.

    My point is what do we do to save this country. I know what is happening and I don't like it. How do we make things right?

    Well, the only legal option that will help guarantee that you continue to enjoy the few remaining liberties is to vote the Socialists out. You're in PA, right? Talk to some of the die hard Labor Union folks. Ask them how they feel about the runaway spending and how it might impact them or their kids in the future. Find the sportsmen and ask them how they feel about a future where Liberals (not necessarily always Democrats: Ref. Arlen Specter) might severely limit their option to purchase and own a firearm. If they're Catholic, ask them if they really want abortion to continue? Chances are, they're also heavily influenced by the Labor Union if they're Catholic and still pulling that D lever. Point to the successful booming of the Automotive industry in the Southeastern United States. We're non-union and we're not working in sweat shops. If their fear is that they won't have a job if they don't support the Union candidate, then ask them how that's working out for the thousands of UAW workers at Chrysler and GM who are being fired as their plants close. ;)

    The Northeastern US is a very unique political area. I honestly believe the people share the same core Conservative values as the Red states but they vote out of fear of losing their jobs. I believe the Labor Unions are DEFINITELY a problem but the broader problem may be in how you're required to declare your party in most of these states. A personal identity forms with a certain party and folks feel it hard to break out of that box. I'd like to see the whole of the US adopt a system similar to what we have in SC. You don't register for party affiliation. You go to the primary you'd like to vote in but you're not *limited* to a party. You can vote in either primary. You folks in PA got screwed when Arlen Specter switched parties.

    Honestly, voter education is the only thing that can fix this problem... Obama showed us that even the younger generation can be made interested in politics if approached correctly. We should learn from him and utilize electronic media wherever possible to reach out to all generations. The FACTS are on our side. If you notice, when liberals debate, they like to call names, demean, and rake their opposition over the coals without ever really pointing to what is wrong and citing proof. They're emotional machines. We have fact on our side. It's time to use it! :D
