On DEBT and AUSTERITY…

The so-called DEBT, and the panic surrounding it, is a pure contrivance. This “issue” that is broadly and constantly bandied about by the corporate shills of every stripe, is nothing but a colossal SCAM; A RUSE used specifically by the Republicans to distract and stupefy people.

It is the DE FACTO Rulers, the Trillionaires, that run this wretched little show. And the FACT is that they’ve been intentionally Bilking everyone down the line, by way of Enormous Schemes to Defraud; All as they Plunder the world’s natural resources; and as they Hoard 46 Trillion U.S. Dollars in various Tax-Free Havens.

The so-called DEBT was in FACT created by their own totally disastrous, utterly ruinous policies of more Deregulation of ALL industry and the thoroughly corrupt Privatization of all previously PUBLIC sectors.

By the way, the term “ENTITLEMENTS,” is a DELIBERATE misnomer; it is yet another contrived term used only just recently to make the very programs that all U.S. citizens have PAID into for YEARS, look and seem like [undeserved] WELFARE. It is NOT.

Furthermore, if the government hacks want to bring up the DEBT, the very debt that they themselves have created through their own thoroughly failed policies over the last four decades, while they propose AUSTERITY MEASURES for the REST of US, then I propose a referendum vote:

Retract entirely ALL benefits that these contemptible PUBLIC SERVANTS enjoy on OUR, the TAX-PAYER’S, hard-earned dime and SLASH their Paychecks to NOTHING.

Historical Quotes…

The death-knell of the republic had rung as soon as the active power became lodged in the hands of those who sought, not to do justice to all citizens, rich and poor alike, but to stand for one special class and for its interests as opposed to the interests of others.

 – Theodore Roosevelt

 

 “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”

 

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

 

“Corporation cunning has developed faster than the law of nation or state. Corporations have found ways to steal long before we have found that they were susceptible to punishment for theft. But sooner or later, unless there is a season of readjustment, there will come a riotous, wicked, murderous day of atonement…. These fools on Wall Street think that they can go on forever! They can’t!”

 

Theodore Roosevelt

 

“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

 

~ Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864

 

 ‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered..'” 

 

~ Thomas Jefferson, 1802

 

“There are plenty of ugly things about wealth and its possessors in the present age, and I suppose there have been in all ages. There are many rich people who so utterly lack patriotism, or show such sordid and selfish traits of character, or lead such mean and vacuous lives, that all right-minded men must look upon them with angry contempt…

 

~Theodore Roosevelt

 

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” 

 

 ~Sinclair Lewis

 

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” 

 

– George Orwell 

 

 “When fascism comes to America, it will come in the form of democracy.”  

 

~Huey Long

 

“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.”

 

 ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

 

“Martin Luther King, Jr.

State of Affairs: Another Brief History Lesson Featuring The Roosevelts…

Well,  by now it seems that it truly does not matter at all who is installed in this U.S. government.  Every Puppet-Administration, whether Democrat, Republican, are used as a mere distraction;  An intentional diversion away from the ongoing and highly successful collaboration among thieves to continue their goals to commit Mass Fraud and to freely Plunder anything left of the already ravaged earth (extracting by theft ALL remaining natural resources).  Any and  Every tool, dupe, pimp, quisling installed in any Administration will do what ever they are told by the real Power Brokers:  The Trillionaires, The Robber Barons, the Tycoons.
 
Each administration has followed, in lock-step, the ongoing and thorough DEREGULATION of every single industry, along with the ongoing Privatization of ALL previously public sectors.  Mitt Romney, for instance, is just another clueless Figurehead;  He, like Obama, will do exactly whatever he’s told:  More Deregulation and Privatization, and More Tax Cuts for the Uber-Wealthy.  Yes, DEREGULATION is the same as giving an Idiot-Child a Machine Gun. 
 
But alas, there may be HOPE yet!!  Both Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt succeeded in breaking the stranglehold of Corporate Monopolies, first through Theodore’s aggressive anti-monopoly and anti-trust legislation;  And later by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s responsive counter to the big banks’ destruction, the Depression-era Glass-Steagal Act, among other critical Regulatory reforms.  They were both aware and Altruistic and Decent enough to take these critical measures and more, all directly against the bitter opposition and the fervent protests by the Ruling tycoons of the day.
 
FDR also knew very well that, and I’ll quote him now,  “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”
 
Today, everything that so many people in this country have struggled long against and fought for HARD, sometimes even to their very own demise,  Everything that has been fought for long and hard over many years,  Voting Rights for Black men, Women’s Suffrage, the Civil Rights movement, Worker’s Rights, Unions;  all of these “basic” and “fundamental” Rights, brutally and violently opposed by the Ruling Classes, were fought for to produce and ensure a robust middle class;  and  to create and maintain a rudimentary measure of a more Fair and Just system for all, Rich and Poor alike.  Today,  every organized effort, every life lost in pursuit of Fairness and Justice for all, has been thoroughly erased and intentionally destroyed.  And WE the people, the hoodwinked, the lulled, the complacent,  the lazy, have let it all happen.  And now the Corporate takeover of the United States and of the entire world is complete.
 
But Fear NOT:  Theodore Roosevelt was a wise and prescient man;  He said the following inspiring words:
“Corporation cunning has developed faster than the law of nation or state. Corporations have found ways to steal long before we have found that they were susceptible to punishment for theft. But sooner or later, unless there is a season of readjustment, there will come a riotous, wicked, murderous day of atonement…. These fools on Wall Street think that they can go on forever! They can’t!”
So, with ALL of the stark and obvious warnings over the last four decades,  having been totally IGNORED by most of the citizenry, THIS is the FINAL wake up call.  They’ve DONE IT!!  And we’ve indeed reached the point of no return;  Unless and until an Enormous and Global Realization, a TRUE AWAKENING, occurs across this country, across this world, We are DOOMED.
SO DON’T GIVE UP NOW!!
