END OF THE AMERICAN DREAM
By: Ted Lang
What alternative is there in a nation that has gladly relinquished its freedoms and turned them over to lying, bribe-taking, feckless politicians, all of whom are warmongers and war criminals, who managed to either dodge the draft, hide and get stoned in the Air National Guard, or who shot unarmed men, women and children to protect them from communism? How can an internationally shunned liar and backstabber qualify to be president of this great land? Easily, since it is nowhere near being that which it once was.
Americans were killed by
airplane-hijacking suicide terrorist even though the Bush administration
had ample warning that the attacks were coming, yet did nothing. Still
there are disquieting rumors that certain individuals in the Bush administration
not only knew of the impending attacks, but also helped to clear their
way in order to launch interventionist preemptive justification for declaring
war on one sixth of the world’s population. Bush heard little voices
inside his head. And Pat Robertson told our mad smirker not to worry –
slaughtering all the world’s Arabs and Muslims will bring Christ
back to walk amongst us again. Just ask Pat. He’ll show you where
it says all this in the Bible. I wonder what Bush and Robertson might
say to Jesus upon his arrival. Perhaps it will be: Behold Rabbi, all these
that were your Father’s creation, we have killed for you –
Bush’s PATRIOT Act, actually created by the Clinton administration, has all but abolished the Bill of Rights and suspended habeas corpus. Which dictator, communist, fascist, or Nazi, accomplished that monumental feat? And who is creating the Hitlerian National ID card and "walking papers" all Americans will soon be required to have and present upon demand by either the military or the police [both local and federal]? Who has established Nazi Gestapo "checkpoints" at the airports? The latter will soon be established at rail, subway stations, tunnel entrances and bridge tollbooths.
Who instituted the Karl Marx Communist Manifesto government planks of a progressive personal income tax and a national bank [Federal Reserve System]? And who created the Socialist Security system that will soon be bankrupt? Were these communist butchers, murderers and dictators, or were they Presidents Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt? And then, which Democratic president decided to allow reserved funds for social security to be raided for general disbursements? It was Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson. And what Democratic President decided to tax Socialist Security "benefits" as though they were regular earned Income? None other than William Jefferson Clinton!
Indeed, who has done more damage to America and Americans than our dictatorial presidents? And now Republican Bush has finalized the trashing of our Constitution. Iraq has the world’s second largest oil reserves, and in order to remove Iraq as an obstacle to Israel’s conquest of the Middle East to enable the annexation of these oil producing states, Bush lied US into this war that not only was unconstitutionally launched for the sole benefit of Israel, but look at what it has cost US in terms of the lives and limbs of our duped military. Check out the prices at the gasoline pump. Then check out the $16 billion plus in foreign aid we send to Israel annually.
What will the American voter do about all this? Why vote for four more years of more of the same. After all, what are the frightened flocks of American sheeple to do?
