A few understand, but most don’t. It’s obvious from many of the comments posted that people continue to look only for us versus them, Obama versus Bush, Republican versus Democrat.
Facts are dismissed outright if they don’t conform to the reader’s perception, formed through 12 or more years of government-controlled education, years of listening to the government propaganda-spreading media and from toeing the party line.
No legitimate criticism of Obama policies can be made without a Bush derangement syndrome-like “but Bush…” response. No legitimate criticism of Republican ideas can be made without a corresponding “Obama is a non-American socialist because…” response. If this is what you do you are caught in their trap.
The argument is not about Democrat versus Republican. It’s about freedom- and liberty-loving American patriots versus the control-seeking, socialist elected class.
People ask, “They’re spending money like there is no tomorrow. How can they be so dumb?” Or, “They’re passing this bill that can’t be constitutional. Don’t they read the constitution?”
The answers: They aren’t dumb, and they may or may not have read the constitution. But it doesn’t matter. They don’t care what it says.
Their efforts are directed toward total control. They seek your compliance and nothing more. Dissent? Not tolerated.
Consider the response of the elected class to the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party protests. They showed their disdain, calling a group of people exercising their right to petition government names like un-American, Nazi or terrorists.
In town hall meetings they tried to show the people they represented who was boss. As Rep. Baron Hill (D-Ind.) told a constituent in explanation for why the congressman’s remarks couldn’t be videotaped, “This is my town hall meeting. Let me repeat that one more time; this is my town hall meeting for you and you’re not going to tell me how to run my congressional office.”
How do they control the people?
By stealing their wealth—A fiat money system, in which dollars can be created by a keystroke on a computer, puts more money in the system thereby making the dollars worth less. This is combined with a system of taxation where they take ever-increasing amounts of money from the highest achievers while exempting a growing number of lower wage earners, all the while convincing an ignorant public it’s done for the public good—or will be saved for retirement (Social Security).
By feeding them propaganda—A complicit state-run media that feeds off the government and willingly passes along government messages in order to remain relevant and to gain access to those in power. An example: ABC will have Oprah Winfrey interview Barack Obama for a Christmas special to be aired Dec. 13. Expect probing questions from Oprah, the Obama sycophant.
By keeping them sick—We don’t have a healthcare system in America, we have a sickness care system. It’s the most sophisticated killing machine that demented minds can create. Modern medicine is now the third largest cause of death. This is a Malthusian dream to reduce the population under the pretense of doctoring for sickness and disease. Modern medicine implies sickness is a drug deficit. Modern medicine pushes harmful vaccines to keep the people sick and provide a sop for big pharmaceuticals. And now it pushes toward a socialized healthcare system of Obamacare. A review of socialized healthcare programs in Canada, the U.K. and Europe reveals Sarah Palin’s “death panels” were no exaggeration: Government bureaucrats in those countries routinely deny healthcare based on abstract determinations of “quality of life,” rather than of medical necessity.
By drawing them into a political party—There’s no difference between the two main parties. Oh, yes, there are differences in the platforms on some issues: abortion, taxation, foreign policy, etc. But those are just clever ploys to draw people in and get them to conform. “I’m a Republican” or “I’m a Democrat” gets people arguing among themselves over minor issues while both parties continue to push toward socialism. Don’t believe it? Think back over the last few years about how government has grown when one party is in power. And look at the legislative process. When one party introduces a bad bill, rather than kill it, the other party tries to amend it. A pig doesn’t become a cow if you glue on a set of horns and udders. Likewise, an amended bad bill remains a bad bill, and the march toward socialism ebbs and flows. Republicans or Democrats—no difference. But you argue amongst yourselves believing there is a difference.
So, again, it’s time for a new paradigm.
Protect yourself against the fiat money system—Gold or silver, and stocks in companies that mine gold and silver, are your protection. Keep your savings in the fiat money system and you might as well be setting your paper dollars on fire one at a time.
Reject the propaganda—Divest yourself of the mainstream media. Understand that what they are feeding, you don’t need. Search out the alternative media. Read books and publications that enlighten and challenge conventional wisdom. Some of them can be found in Personal Liberty Digest under the link: Latest Book Reviews. Others have been mentioned from time to time in my previous writings here and in my newsletter, The Bob Livingston Letter. They include: The Fat Resistance Diet by Dr. Leo Galland; How to Hide Anything by Michael Connor; Trust Us, We’re Experts (about how industry manipulates science and gambles with your future) by Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber; Propaganda by Edward Bernays; Manufacturing Consent by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky; Good-bye Germ Theory by Dr.William P.Trebing; Rethinking Pasteur’s Germ Theory by Nancy Appleton; and The Miracle of Magnesium by Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D. Read with an open mind. Only then will the wisdom sink in. Then, share with others what you’ve learned.
Take charge of your health—True healthcare is in the foods you eat and in understanding that there are alternative treatment options for your ailments. Conventional medicine pushes drugs and the cut-and-burn method to treat disease and cancer. It treats the symptoms but not the cause. True health lies in prevention through diet and treatment through diet and non-conventional means. Reject the move toward socialized medicine. The elected class claims it’s good for you but they have rejected every effort to have them included in the Obamacare system. But you can’t opt out. If you decide it’s not for you then you face a fine and jail term.
Ignore the party line—The parties are only interested in building their power base and collecting your money. They are two heads of the same dragon. The Democrats currently in power push for a take-over of industry, socialized medicine, huge stimulus bills and talk of coming tax increases. Before them, Republicans in power pushed a huge stimulus bill, a huge war bill and power-grabbing anti-liberty legislation in the USA PATRIOT Act. Government grew under Republicans, it’s growing exponentially under Democrats. Don’t believe they’re the same? See: Arlen Specter (Democrat to Republican to Democrat), Joe Leiberman (Democrat to Independent to ?), Dede Scozzafava (Republican to Democrat), Newt Gingrich (Republican who has supported Specter and Scozzafava and sided with Nancy Pelosi in the global warming hoax), George W. Bush (supported Specter, joined with Edward M. Kennedy on No Child Left Behind), John McCain (beyond supporting amnesty to illegals, prohibiting more oil drilling and supportive of cap and tax, who knows from one day to the next where he stands?), Lindsey Graham (supports amnesty, working on cap and tax bill, says Republican Party is not party of Ron Paul).
Overturning years of an entrenched line of thought is difficult, but you now know there is another direction. There is another paradigm.
