on the FiB side of what you said no one ever comments, but when I see them in person alot of them admit to reading and pondering what exactly i was talking about.  I still hold out hope when the system cracks and people see not all is well that they will remember some of the posts like this.

The hope is there will be many people who remember how the American system is supposed to work, will be able to pick up the pieces, and restore the republic after the complete and total economic collapse happens.

So far, we got Ron Paul the Congressman and his son Rand Paul the Senator in there for the next 5 1/2 years.

We're making progress.

Why doesn't Ron Paul campaign when he does interviews?

He should bring along visuals with him to take to the interviews.

He should show images of his 2008 campaign. Images of his Meetup Groups all over the planet.

What other candidate had that kind of support and still has, and more?

If only we had something we could use to put in check human nature?

All social engineering the whiz kids could come up with at Harvard and Yale to put in check human nature could not and never will overcome human nature.

It's human nature to be as free as reasonably possible with a government that guarantees at least the minimum amount of Liberty to them that they serve.

Yeah.. same here..

YouTube - George Carlin ~ The American Dream

But there’s a reason. There’s a reason. There’s a reason for this, there’s a reason education SUCKS, and it’s the same reason it will never, ever,  EVER be fixed.

It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it, be happy with what you’ve got.

Because the owners, the owners of this country don't want that. I'm talking about the real owners now, the BIG owners! The Wealthy… the REAL owners! The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions.

Forget the politicians. They are irrelevant. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice! You have OWNERS! They OWN YOU. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying,  lobbying, to get what they want.  Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I'll tell you what they don’t want: 

They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. Thats against their interests.

Thats right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. They don’t want that!

You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shitty jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this fucking place! Its a big club, and you ain’t in it!  You, and I, are not in the big club.

By the way, its the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care! Good honest hard-working people; white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means, continue to elect these rich cock suckers who don’t give a fuck about you….they don’t give a fuck about you… they don’t give a FUCK about you.

They don’t care about you at all… at all… AT ALL.  And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Thats what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick thats being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth.

Its called the American Dream,because you have to be asleep to believe it.

Careful, what is put on Facebook cannot be effectively removed. If the Gov. becomes even more 1984, where do you think they will look for subversives.

KennyG09's picture

Let them come.

Edit: Sweet avatar by the way.


Scisco's picture

Why thank you. Yours is pretty smashing as well.

robobbob's picture

if that happens, do you really think that it will make any difference?

and by not participating, are you not contributing to its certainty?

Scisco's picture

Honestly I think it might. Posting anti mainstream ideas in places like facebook are likely to get you noticed and put under observation. As for not participating, you are incorrect sir (or possibly madam). I routinely participate in political discussions but I chose to do so in person. I find it far more effective. There are very few places on the nets that a serious conversation can be had and facebook is definitely not one of them.

Rule #1A--Governments exist to lie, and in the modern world they rarely tell the truth.

Rynak's picture

More specifically, concepts can never guarantee something, only encourage something - for the simple reason, that humans can change those concepts (sometimes to the point where only the word is original anymore).

Anything made by man is, by definition, temporary. Even the Pyramids.

When freedom comes with a 'Made in China' tag I'll know it's for realz.

Rule #1

you do not talk about fight club

The Alarmist's picture

Sorry, but the ship has already sailed ... ever wonder what a Roman of the first century BC thought as he watched the Republic slip into dictatorship and ultimately into empire?

The Alarmist's picture

Yeah, we should have known Al Quaeda was serious when they killed the Kennedys. Al Quaeda is everwhere!

Ha! Good one!

Y'all remember "Debbie Downer" now don'tcha?

Re-read #3 and #7, seriously.

As the descent of the empire accelerated I was as cynical as anyone here.  At some point - I think it was after much ammo, silver/gold and food was stored - I said fuck it and started believing it would be actually possible to reconstruct a Republic.  Of course, not after much pain.  But, WE the minority ARE the ship and by God I mean to help steer it to safer harbors of small government and honest money, or die trying.

The more apathy we spread with crap like, "We're all doomed and there's not a thing we can do about it", the more real that possibility will be.  It's too fucking easy to be a cynic and it's damn hard to be hopeful and constructive. But which has the chance at bearing fruit?  I'm going with the latter, Alarmist, damn the torpedoes...


mr. mirbach's picture

We need more (any) documentaries on all the puzzle pieces in play on the planet and who is responsible for all of the shennanigans and the consequences thereof if they are not put to stop ASAP. 


Maybe we need our own TV network where we can broadcast the truth interspersed with NASCAR, Star Trek and old chick flicks to get the message out for J6P and spouse.

They would just jump to Nancy Grace every time a truth segment appeared.

This isn't bad.

Guy did a whole lot of work on it, to be sure.

illyia's picture

Thx. Will read through it.

One Ministry of Truth's propaganda broadcasts are no more TRUTH than any other Ministry of Truth's propaganda broadcasts.

In any war or revolution- TRUTH through propaganda is exploited by BOTH sides.

War and revolution are dirty business.  The noblest of intentions are easily corrupted without a firm VALUES to guide and even limit the revolutionaries course.
