Election 2012: How The Winner Will Destroy America

Tyler Durden's picture


Authored by Brandon Smith of,

Of all the hollow and uninspired elections that this country has suffered through over the past several decades, one might think that at some point long ago the American public would have finally struck a plateau of disenfranchisement; that we could sink no further into despondency, that there is a saturation limit to the corruption of our voting process.  Unfortunately, there has been no such luck.  I have to say that in all honesty I have never seen more people gut jumbled and disgusted with our electoral system than I have in 2012.  Sure, there is still a hyper-gullible segment of the populous that continues to play the game, but even those idiots are beginning to admit that the choices offered are dismal at best, catastrophic at worst.  The fog of the false Left/Right paradigm is starting to lift, and all that lay in its wake is a hoard of lost wide-eyed flabbergasted followers without a coattail or a talking point to cling to.  Sudanese refugees have a better chance of survival than these people do…

Even in the more obvious of fraudulent past elections there was at least an attempt by the establishment to present a pageant of conflicting ideologies (George W. Bush vs. John Kerry comes to mind).  There has always been the Democrat who pretends to be anti-war, or the Republican who pretends to be small government, or the Democrat who pretends to defend our right to privacy, and the Republican who pretends to be pro-2nd Amendment.  But in 2012, even the theater of rhetoric has disappeared.  Both primary party candidates seem to be sharing the same intestinal tract and the same teleprompter, and now, the average American is asking a new set of questions.  They do not wonder how these men will change things for the better.  Not at all.  Instead, they wonder which one will do LESS DAMAGE while in office.  This is the terrible reality we have come to understand in our society today.  It is a sad awakening, but a necessary one. 

As you read this now, the new President of the United States is being “chosen” or has been chosen.  Whoever the “winner” happens to be is ultimately irrelevant.  They do not count.  They are mascots.  Middle management cronies running through the motions to distract the masses while enacting the policies of their superiors.  They are fry cooks serving greasy overpriced democracy with no real sustenance.  What does matter, though, is what comes next.  I’m sorry to say that the idea that one man will do less damage than the other is a naïve sentiment.  Democrat?  Republican?  Obama?  Romney?  The crimes and calamities wrought will be exactly the same.  Take a look into my crystal ball and see the future.  Here is how the winner will destroy America…

1)  He Will Continue The Policy Of Dollar Devaluation


Neither candidate has expressed any interest through the election or even before it to protect the value of our currency, and both candidates have supported steps towards quantitative easing and fiat printing in order to delay an inevitable national debt crisis.  Both Romney and Obama have sung the praises of Ben Bernanke (Romney changed his tune just in time for his campaign, but who's buying that?) and the private Federal Reserve despite the consistent failures of that despotic institution to produce any tangible economic results with their Keynesian methods.


The dollar will see a vast devaluation during the term of this candidate and a loss of world reserve status, leading to stagflation (a combination of the worst elements of deflationary and inflationary crises in the same event).  Skyrocketing prices and crumbling unemployment will be the highlights of his presidency, because he will never take measures to reign in or dismantle the primary root cause of the problem; the Federal Reserve itself.


2)  He Will Continue Extreme Government Debt Spending


Neither candidate has offered a practical or operable solution to the $16 trillion official national debt problem we now face, let alone the tens of trillions of dollars in entitlement obligations that the Treasury Department never talks about.  A nation can only live off food stamps and credit for so long before it implodes like a wet paper sack. And this is exactly what we have become; an entire culture of debt addicts and money hounds searching for our next fix of foreign or central bank cash.  The fact is, both Obama and Romney would INCREASE spending while using fiat injections to buttress an ever weakening economy in the name of “stability”.  The new president will claim that if spending cuts are initiated, it will send the U.S. financial system into a tailspin and a “return” to recession conditions.  This will of course be a lie.  We have not left recession/depression conditions since 2008.


3)  He Will Support And Expand On Wars In The Middle East


There is no such thing as a mainstream “anti-war candidate” in 2012.  Not even a fake one.  Obama’s measures of state violence and complete lack of respect for the sovereign internal matters of foreign nations surpass the madness of George Bush Jr.  He has even gone so far as to assert that his office has the right to assassinate American citizens without trial, evidence, or due process of the law.  Not only has he asserted the right to this power, he has used it!  Romney’s position, hilariously, is that Obama has not gone far enough!  Either way, the winner in 2012 is going to leap like a vile locust into new countries and unleash a plague of laser guided death.  The next president WILL be a war hungry president.


4)  He Will Lock Down The Web And Limit Internet Speech


Both Romney and Obama have expressed a desire to establish cybersecurity measures which include vast new governmental authority over the functions and operations of the internet.  The ultimate goal?  To gain legal precedence for the right to dictate web content, up to and including the ability to label any website a subversive threat to national security or a recruitment tool for “extremists”.


With the establishment spreading completely baseless accusation of cyberthreats coming from every corner of the globe (but mostly from Iran) it would seem that they are conditioning the public for a future encounter with a cyber event, and telling them who to blame when it occurs.  The problem is, the most prominent cyber security threats to the internet in the past few years have come not from the Middle East, or Russia, or China, but the U.S. and Israel (Stuxnet anyone?).  Keep this in mind when our new president blames the next cyber attack on a convenient political target and then uses the event as an excuse to regulate the web.  


5)  He Will Erase American Civil Liberties


This president will find a reason, or he will create a reason to diminish Constitutional protections including our right to trial and due process.  Both candidates have offered unflinching support for the National Defense Authorization Act and its provisions for indefinite detainment.  Neither man has ventured any sincere concerns over the broad nature of the language involved in the labeling of “terrorists” and “extremists”.  Literally anyone can now be categorized as an enemy combatant and a threat to national security for almost any reason, and this appears to be the way Obama and Romney like it.  That is to say, they both want totalitarian powers, or at the very least, they have made no effort to turn them down.


It is important to note that there has never been a government in history that sought out such powers and did not actually use them.  Only a fool would assume his favorite elitist candidate in 2012 will not utilize the extreme authorities now amassed for the executive branch over the past decade.


6)  He Will Embrace A Globalist Dynamic And Abandon American Sovereignty


Both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are surrounded by “advisers” who are also members of the Council On Foreign Relations, an institution which openly calls for the dissolution of American sovereignty on a regular basis and the creation of a centralized global system dominating the financial, social, and political life of every nation in the world.  With the economic stability of the U.S. on the verge of oblivion, it is very likely that a historic crisis will ensue during the first term of the next president, and that he will in response suggest a new global system as the solution.


This system has already been created, in part, by the IMF and World Bank in concert with member governments and revolves around the issuance of a new world reserve currency (Special Drawing Rights) as the centerpiece.  I can guarantee with absolute certainty that the next president, regardless of who he happens to be, will promote an IMF rescue package coupling the dollar to the SDR and turning over full economic control of America to an international body.  He will make it sound rational, reasonable, and even advantageous, but in the end, he will be selling the globalist snakeoil he was conscripted to sell before his election campaign ever started.

In 2012, it will not be about voting.  It will not be about “winning”.  It will not even be about getting to the next election.  It will be about survival.  As big a joke as the 2012 elections have become even to the generally unaware, I am not laughing.  I do not need to look at the promises of either candidate.  I do not need to weigh their half-assed quick fix policies.  All I have to do is look at the current downward trend and understand that the president, whoever he may be, will continue it.  If anything is to truly change, it will be because we as Americans finally walk away from the game, enacting our own solutions and our own opposition instead of handing over our power to sniveling errand boys wrapped in flags and expensive suits and self-rightousness every four years.  2012 is going to be the beginning of upheaval and renewal, for better or for worse, and it is certain that the guy in the White House into 2013, Republican or Democrat, is going to be a part of the problem, nothing more…

The entire world, well at least the Western World requires and demands that the US continue its ponzi and farce of elections.  Nothing of substance will change.

In fairness, they have the same rights to be poll-watchers as anyone else, so long as they are doing so lawfully, which they appear to be so far (e.g. they are not armed).

I'd rather have the Panthers watch people vote than the TSA. Of course, many of the Panthers can probably read the names on the ballots, unlike the TSA.

In a society where everyone values money above all else, what do you expect?

Money is good; money creates saints.  And everyone will let themselves be fucked for the right price.  Everyone.

I make no note of my 'affluence,'  but I've observed the changes in peoples' behavior toward me once they realize I'm well-off.


And I think it's disgusting.  People never respect you for who you are: the only respect you're given is determinate of how much they value what you have. And you wonder why this country is sinking?  Why this entire western civilization is dead?  Because there is no moral foundation and the people propagate their hedonistic ways without an ounce of thought given towards ethics.

"People never respect you for who you are: the only respect you're given is determinate of how much they value what you have."

And how badly they want it!

This is why I laugh my ass off, when I see guys driving brand new trucks and cars, all rimmed out, toys everywhere, I know their dead broke! Same shit with women and their thousand dollar purses..... Broke as hell! Now im not saying these people may or may not have big salaries or cash flow, but their still fucking broke, if their total debt exceeds their income and assets!!

Man I realized I had "made it" when I stopped giving a fuck what people thought I had, and started thinking about keeping it!!! I wear jeans and a ball cap everyday I can, I drive an 80's Mercedes on biodiesel I make and don't ay a penny for it, I haven't purchased a car new in over a decade, and besides my business partners and my wife, no one has a clue what we have or don't have............and I love it that way!!! And what I've noticed about people who really have wealth and assets, most are like this!!!

If you buy a 5 million dollar house and you make $500,000 a year, congratulations asshole, your just 4.5 million dollars in debt!!!!!

Not many individuals are like me: love and respected for tremendous personal sacrifice for family and nation. Often I dress as a homeless person to go deep into the hood so that my assistance to the disadvantaged will have a deep and lasting impact. Not many know I do this and this makes my reward more certain. Many seek out my advice, but mostly I listen, only rarely asking a question or two to get them back on track to solving their own problem before out time is over. This is the way I am, and people love me, plus I feel good about myself. So I have these things going for me, plus I have invested all my net worth in PMs since 1997. Yep, feeling pretty good. I read ZH to keep my optimism tamped down and to remind me how bad things can really get.

Dat be da way winning armies been built since da beginning og time itself.

Got busted for vagrancy when 18. All I had on when snagged was a pair of pants, Didn't have a penny in de pocket. Served three days. Got out with an older guy latino  named "Rosie". He suggested I follow him and we walked across the street to a salvation army and a barrio stranger bought me a pair of pointy tangerine shoes and a shirt. A latter moment in the life living n skid row. Had a bad case of - really bad - of pink eye. A guy I didn't know, but played chess with walked 7 miles to fetch me some eye drops he got from his aunt. Soon as i put em in de eye, reams of snotty puss pooled up and dripped out.

No visible metrics to benchmark the depth of a persons capacity to care or their humanity - well except for someone proudly thinking they be voting for an RNC or DNC fairy princess.

Don't discount humanity based on appearances - humanity's'  power is in some of scariest places the shabby sheik wal-mart elite avoid like a fear shart at de old after church Luby's chow down,  and, thusly,  be a spoilin' their brand new, and very mostest stylish haynes big box store all u-can-eet polyunsaturated fat guy briefs.

Don't discount where non-white working class Americans are on the issues. They are full of suprises. They know whats going on. They are survivors. Real survivors. And when de bullet hits de bone in de heartland dey be da best allies pinky libertarians could ever hope to hook-up with,  Many of them be Ron Paul supporters.

The problem is we've already won - we just don't accept it - and the establishment be scarred shitless de day cumming when we finally figure it out. All we gotta do is  accept it. One day we all will shrug our shoulders in unison and the Johnys we employ, and Diebold puts in charge of our authorizations playing find de quarter with pre-schoolers in dem K-Street Kiddie Brothels will fold like a bitch whose foramen magnum done been shattered by a wad of lead from a hot load..

A writ - an executive order ain't nuthin to trust ones protection in and dat be fore sure. When I watch CSPAN - i see headstone prospects for pilgrimage urinals and dat be all most of us see,

Reverend Wright, and not Sissy da sissy butt head we got now, should have been president. De current girlie boy blood on hand nobel peace prizer putz, despite his mammy's race or employment tenure with Turbo Tax Timmy's pappy  ain't nothing like those urs true knows blessed with a purer African phenotype. Question: Is Turbo Tims Daddy African - hmmmm. Dat would splain a lot Lucy!

At least a monkey gets a hit of cocain when he pushes a "button". Americans get a rubber dick up their collective asses from der fuhrer of homo-erotic inseecurity.

I guess that be something akin to a 1-900 SEX call by a whimp that couldn't get his rocks off even watching his mother smothered in chocolate syrup strapping it on with a barn goat - and so it goes .. in and out and in and out an on and on and on - till the goats tuna sauce is flushed from his loins like snot from the left nostril when a Wall Street handkerchief  is used .. in and out and on and on ..  fake sex in the la-la land of globaloney jerk-offs never finding nirvana (even watching mommy slimed in chocolate gettin' it from behind by a goat behind the barn.)

Rock and Roll Hoochie Goo - Yaaaaahooooo ...

(BTW: A Wall Street handkerchief is when you put your thumb on one nostril to violently flush out the sinuses connected to the other nostril to land where change permits - and you thought the cream sauce on the Tiffany Grand Marnier Souffle tasted odd because it was exotic - well it was exotic - it was your brokers most recent sinus load dumb fock!

... and so it goes .....

Flies all green an buzzin'

  In a dungeon of despair

     grumblin' prisoners piss their pants

        and scratch their matted hair

 and the torture never stops

    the torture never stops ....

FEEMA Day Mein Kamps waiting to open near a population center like yours real soooooon!

Love George Washington's blog - no he reports issues with electronic voting fraud for a ballot of bailout whore frauds ... what's the eff-ing diff - fruadulent voting or a clean vote for a list of frauds ... hmmmm

Odds may be against the Mormon - he has a conflict with the War Usury Exchange's fav loss leader - the land of the today's Ashkenazi WZO Shadow Bankster Gypsies - straight out-a-Balfour. What is that conflict - you don't know? Well, Mormons believe that American Indians, and not the Ashkenazi, are the famous "lost tribe". Honest Injun - swear to budda on a stack of rizzel drizzeled tikis dork breadth! Check for yourself sheeple boy!

Hello my dear Americans - we are the largest single population of terrorist on the planet according to our employees foaming from the crotch at the K-Street Kiddie Brothels. And hello to all the fake rent-a-snoops we employ - got to warn you guys - there's a 3 in 4 chance the next to you pretending to be like you is actual a terroist like the rest of. You gung-hoes who be thinking you on the side of might - might need to do a head count. THere is hope, The Noam guy discovered a ratio - only 1 in four of us are predisposed to authoritarianism - and since you flaccid wanna be G-guys are just collateral riff raff like the rest of us, your participation my not be organic - it's just functional.

And it is a great day - Merikons are out in droves say the face on TV, voting for one of two guys who's only substantial difference is the foreign country they were born in - so punk - what's it gonna be - a Kenyan or a Mexican - only the Diebold programmer knows for sure!

And we should all feel relieved - their is an 8 to 1 chance we'll be killed by a policemen before any terror dirka dirka dude scratches us with a box cutter and we have to get a tetnus shot us. Thank budda on a stack of tikis Our fuhrer of  Homo Erotic Inseecurity has recently purchased a billion rounds of hollow point ammunition (with our money) and a couple of tons of See-Fore to enhance the cops odds ... i worry - she still ain't got enough bullets to control this mob.

Saw Ventura's "Conspiracy Theory" last night - a commercial airliner pilot with 30 years under his belt tried to fly a 757 simulation into the JAG wing of the pentagon and only crashed - one time he rolled the plane before he crashed ... and so it cums - over the teeth and through the gums and down the gullet to the tummy tum tum!!

Keep it wet Merikons - ask your polling station manager for cocain - at least the monkey is smart enough to not fall for "hope and change you can beleive in" pig in a poke. At least the monkey gets a real rush - and not that fake plastic fantastic civic pride cum shot bullshit they force us to pretend we enjoy! Like a date with fistema - you never leave the house.

Only about 250 Million organic libertarians. Those of us confusing authoritarianism with patriotism suffer from a functional disoorder easily remedied.

There is a difference between fighting and winning. THe barking dog never bites - the silent dog will sink his fang into the neck artery when the prey is relaxed in a field of a false sense of security, and believe me baby, it hurt. And that bring the total to about 300 Million.

We quietly sit back and decide how we are to decorate the cherry trees lining our national maul with the bodies of known fascists (Mussolini style!) . Like a Cajun - he be pretending the impudent little demon be what ever he think he be - when the throat is exposed that little demon get gutted and be a wailing like a most freshest cabrito hung and screaming on a Sunday morning barrio backyard porch when abuelita's sling blade sink in the veal goat's rib cage - it hurt real bad - real bad - for a while - but ever so tasty on a tortilla with homemade pica!

Guessing three republocrats gophers an straight out-a-Balfour reformed ashkenazi offspring of Vlad the Impaler gypsy folders of paper prayers into a crack in de wall girlie boys were offended by original post. (sorry ladies)

Figures - they'll hange when they hear the thunder of freedom rolling at `em like a beast with seven heads.

Israeli's will have their spring soon too. We will also. We ain't interested in a fight or burning down what we own - we in it to win - and win we will - you can take that to the bank.

Wondering - our reformed synogress was so supportive of the Libyan Rebel Army and the Syrian Rebel Army - will they be as supportive of an American Rebel Army.

Ya gotta bait your prey food into the trap - make it feel all comfy and cozy - if they scared den dere flesh be soured `n rendered inedible by dem ole fear pheromones, irregardless of how quick de wiley predator be removing da musk glanz from da knee knuckles. Doze lazy tender sheep so tasty - no reason to be tooooo impatient and ruin a perfectly good meal skewered an slow roasted over dem hot embers left by the hatching phoenix!

An' it stinks so bad the stones been chokin'
   'N weepin' greenish drops
      In the room where the giant fire puffer works
        'N the torture never stops
           The torture never stops

IT WILL STOP - you can take dat to de bank - a real bank - real soon - at least datz what ne bunyons be a tellin.

Kenyan or Mexican - the choice is yours - haaaa ha ha ha ha - heard you can get rich by voting for rich guys - i never did - an i be rich as shit!

Here I stand in the streets of Seville with only the lint in my pockets and i feel like the richest man in the world - but some i-Gadget might make de women swoon a swirl like it be cream filled tootsie roll-pop!

Keep it wet! Vote early and vote often - they don't care - all you be doing is clicking a nonfunctional button to nowhere any-waze. The diebold guy already know de out-cum!

Because there is no moral foundation and the people propagate their hedonistic ways without an ounce of thought given towards ethics."   I don't know who you encounter in your daily life, but it sounds like there are some serious issues.  Personally, I know quite a few people who are "well off" (house paid off, mid six figure incomes, etc.), and don't think it effects the way I treat them.  Some of them are arrogant, and want to engage in a pissing contest at every turn.  Others, fairly humble, and likeable people.   Regardless of net worth, if someone is an asshole, I treat them as one.  Honestly, I don't give a shit if the person next to me is wealthy or poor.   How does it effect my life?  It doesn't.   I doubt my attitude is all that rare.

It's not money. It's credit and fiat. The values erode with the medium of exchange.

If people produce something real in order to earn something real, they take their lives and yours more seriously. Blame the frigging central bankers for turning everyone into a means to an end.

The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks. - Lord Acton (1834-1902)

At this point, Johnson has no more chance of winning than Ron Paul. Thus the best thing one can do with his vote is to vote his conscience and write-in the man who has fought the ultimate fight against the Matrix for 30 years. He has deserved it.

Future generations will build altars to Ron Paul, while they will despise us for rejecting him, and rightly so.

It's not about winning.  It's like the Christmas present from Aunt Martha:  Either a tie or a pair of socks.  It's bland, expected, and boring -- and has already been decided.   All that's left is the opening of the brightly wrapped package, the obligatory ooohs and aaahs, and finally, "Just what I wanted!".

Voting for Johnson (which I did a week ago) is merely my giving a finger to the Republican Party for their shameful treatment of Dr. Paul.  My state is thoroughly red, so a vote for anyone is wasted anyhow.

The press (and Obma campaigns) has completely missed the implications of the fact that Glem Hubbard is a very likely Treasury Secretary given a Romney victory.

One can talk about Romney flip flopping or never really disclosing his plans.  One can't overlook the selection of Hubbard.  He was Council of Economic Adsvisors under "W" ( a male Christine Romer?) and high up in Treasury under Bush senior.  What more needs to be said.  He is Wall Sttreet's bitch - although not as much as a fool as Timmah.  NOTHING more need be said.

Now what about Obama.  All he had to do to win the election was to point out that R. Glen Hubbard would be Treasury Secretary if he was not reelected.  Why didn't Obama do that?  Because if he had, it would mean that he had smelled out Wall Street, found it revolting and was in favor of real change.  Wall Street wouldn't allow that.

So we will get a new Wall Street bitch in the form of either Hubbard or.......Larry Summers (oh please no)......Jamie Diamon.....Jeffrey Immelt.......Bruce Springsteen.  Lather, rinse, repeat...Bitchez.

"The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks". John Dalberg Lord Acton

Who controls the banks? Sure the fuck aint the bad "terrorist" muslims.

In 63 B.C. the famous Senator of Rome, Marcus Tullinus Cicero, stood before the Senate of Rome and said:
“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt!”

In 2013. the president of the once great USA, stood before the Senate and congress and said:
“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to israel should be ended lest America become bankrupt!”

    “Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce…and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.” – President James Garfield, 2 weeks before his assassination.

    "Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin.
    The Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them,
    but leave them the power to create deposits,
    and with the flick of the pen they will
    create enough deposits to buy it back again.
    However, take it away from them, and
    all the great fortunes like mine
    will disappear and they ought to disappear, for
    this would be a happier and better world to live in.
    But, if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers
    and pay the cost of your own slavery,
    let them continue to create deposits."

    --- Sir Josiah Stamp (1880-1941)

    President of the Bank of England & 2nd richest man in Britain
