The Other Side

Tyler Durden's picture


Originally posted at (via Richmond Times-Dispatch),

The past several weeks have made one thing crystal-clear: Our country faces unmitigated disaster if the Other Side wins.

No reasonably intelligent person can deny this. All you have to do is look at the way the Other Side has been running its campaign. Instead of focusing on the big issues that are important to the American People, it has fired a relentlessly negative barrage of distortions, misrepresentations, and flat-out lies.

Just look at the Other Side’s latest commercial, which take a perfectly reasonable statement by the candidate for My Side completely out of context to make it seem as if he is saying something nefarious. This just shows you how desperate the Other Side is and how willing it is to mislead the American People.

The Other Side also has been hammering away at My Side to release certain documents that have nothing to do with anything, and making all sorts of outrageous accusations about what might be in them. Meanwhile, the Other Side has stonewalled perfectly reasonable requests to release its own documents that would expose some very embarrassing details if anybody ever found out what was in them. This just shows you what a bunch of hypocrites they are.

Naturally, the media won’t report any of this. Major newspapers and cable networks jump all over anything they think will make My Side look bad. Yet they completely ignore critically important and incredibly relevant information that would be devastating to the Other Side if it could ever be verified.

I will admit the candidates for My Side do make occasional blunders. These usually happen at the end of exhausting 19-hour days and are perfectly understandable. Our leaders are only human, after all. Nevertheless, the Other Side inevitably makes a big fat deal out of these trivial gaffes, while completely ignoring its own candidates’ incredibly thoughtless and stupid remarks – remarks that reveal the Other Side’s true nature, which is genuinely frightening.

My Side has produced a visionary program that will get the economy moving, put the American People back to work, strengthen national security, return fiscal integrity to Washington, and restore our standing in the international community. What does the Other Side have to offer? Nothing but the same old disproven, discredited policies that got us into our current mess in the first place.

Don’t take my word for it, though. I recently read about an analysis by an independent, nonpartisan organization that supports My Side. It proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that everything I have been saying about the Other Side was true all along. Of course, the Other Side refuses to acknowledge any of this. It is too busy cranking out so-called studies by so-called experts who are actually  nothing but partisan hacks. This just shows you that the Other Side lives in its own little echo chamber and refuses to listen to anyone who has not already drunk its Kool-Aid.

Let’s face it: The Other Side is held hostage by a radical, failed ideology. I have been doing some research on the Internet, and I have learned this ideology was developed by a very obscure but nonetheless profoundly influential writer with a strange-sounding name who enjoyed brief celebrity several decades ago. If you look carefully, you can trace nearly all the Other Side’s policies for the past half-century back to the writings of this one person.

To be sure, the Other Side also has been influenced by its powerful supporters. These include a reclusive billionaire who has funded a number of organizations far outside the political mainstream; several politicians who have said outrageous things over the years; and an alarmingly large number of completely clueless ordinary Americans who are being used as tools and don’t even know it.

These people are really pathetic, too. The other day I saw a YouTube video in which My Side sent an investigator and a cameraman to a rally being held by the Other Side, where the investigator proceeded to ask some real zingers. It was hilarious! First off, the people at the rally wore T-shirts with all kinds of lame messages that they actually thought were really clever. Plus, many of the people who were interviewed were overweight, sweaty, flushed, and generally not very attractive. But what was really funny was how stupid they were. There is no way anyone could watch that video and not come away convinced the people on My Side are smarter, and that My Side is therefore right about everything.

Besides, it’s clear that the people on the Other Side are driven by mindless anger – unlike My Side, which is filled with passionate idealism and righteous indignation. That indignation, I hasten to add, is entirely justified. I have read several articles in publications that support My Side that expose what a truly dangerous group the Other Side is, and how thoroughly committed it is to imposing its radical, failed agenda on the rest of us.

That is why I believe 2012 is, without a doubt, the defining election of our lifetime. The difference between My Side and the Other Side could not be greater. That is why it absolutely must win on November 6.

A commenter from yesterday had some great insight on this subject;

Political implications of the future currency crisis:

 FACT IS >>>>> WE ARE GOING OFF A CLIFF WITH EITHER OBAMA OR ROMNEY.  It is too late to change course.  And Repubs endorsing a gold standard is laughable.  We are looking at a currency collapse in the next few years.  As soon as we loose our reserve currency status, our rates will spike and we will be TOAST.

Given that a majority of the US public is very uneducated from an economic standpoint, they are very likely going to blame this collapse on the politics on who is currently in office.  I think we can agree that neither Obama nor Romney are going enact measures that will prevent this collapse.

Therefore, we need to ask our selves the following:  Do we want an economic collapse under an “Overt Socialist” i.e. Obama?  Or do we want the collapse during the administration of a RINO that supposedly (at least in the minds of the ignorant US public) stands for Free Market Capitalism?

I am scared of a back lash against Free Market Capitalism if the Economic Collapse happens during Romney’s administration.  This could very well lead to the government enacting much harsher economic controls and lead to a totalitarianism state. 

 But if the Economic Collapse happens during the Obama administration, then the US public will more likely see the actual writing on the wall and finally return to Free Markets.

Therefore I will be voting for the man that is the furthest from my point of view.  Obama.  I think a collapse in his term would be better, he will get the blame and rightly so.

I will personally be happy with either candidate. My only worry was that Ron Paul would get the nomination for Republican Nominee, which would have been disastrous for American economic and foreign policy. In my opinion, Ron Paul should never have been allowed to take part in the presidential race in the first place. His views are simply despicable and completely contrary to American values and morality. I’m all for a free society, but when presidential candidates start talking about abolishing the Federal Reserve, somebody’s got to draw the line.

Maybe he's doing that go along to get along thing recently.

I think he has to get so many stars before he can move up.  It's a mathematical equation thing the Senate adheres to in order to determine who gets to move up and at what time frame within their parties.

Hopefully he's voting for the most innocuous things he thinks he can get away with when considering the Paulies, so he can get some stars.

I think it gets alot more complicated than that though. Different regional groups might go ape shit in different ways. Eastern Seaboard is all federal from Boston to Richmond and could never rebel. Still leaves the rest of the country though. Dems might be able to reign in the southern border but Romney has got a better chance with the Mormons. I don't trust the Mormons with whatever is currently stashed under Dugway WMD proving grounds. Black President might actually mean something if things go wrong in the inner cities.

NUKE the BIS that will make them shit their pants, we (free people) decide how the collapse should happen not them.

In our collapse they wont be holding anything of value when it's over. If they cause the collapse they will just start it all over again wealthier than before the collapse with the same gangsters calling the shots.

 BIS and all central bank buildings in every country that is aligned with the gangsters. Should be targeted for destruction.

A lot less will die than the WW3 they are planning for us.

I'm just writing science fiction. Because none of what I write about can be proven as fact then what I write about is not true. The "godfather" was fiction based on the early days of italian gangsters taken from reality. What i write about is my imagination, or so other posters tell me. My writing is based on something that does not exist, Criminal Jews controlling the Banking, defense,energy and military industries. Owning and controlling all governments and politicians that borrow from them. Come on now think how can that be real why would we just not eliminate the cancer if that was reality? They are not a nation of men but a corporation of individuals who steal their wealth from the rest of the individuals on the planet for their benefit and profit. They have no standing army ,navy or airforce to enforce this reality so how can this possibly be real?

Writing fiction about reality "godfather". Writing  about a Criminal Jewish Banking Cartel conspiracy that does not exist is Science Fiction.

If you believe otherwise then your just creating a conspiracy.

Despite all the conspiracy theories you hear about the Federal Reserve, there really couldn’t be an institution more deserving of our praise and respect. Since it’s establishment in 1913, our Federal Reserve bank has tirelessly pursued it’s dual mandate for maximum employment and price stability. Much of the economic development in America over the last century has been a direct result of our monetary officials’ sound monetary policy and wise economic planning. The institution is run by academics of the highest calibre, who have a vast knowledge of economic theory and rigorous understanding of economic principles. The most ingenious aspect of the Federal Reserve act was that the bank was specifically set up to be independent of congress. The founders believed that this was the only way to ensure that the Federal Reserve could pursue its dual mandate without corruption arising from congressional interference.

Not going to change overnight but step one is to stop the bleeding and that means socialist Obama needs to be shown the door.  I'm not saying Romney/Ryan can save it, probably cannot, but will definately be better at managing the mess that results from the economic collapse.  The more difficult part of the equation is Harry Reid and the democratic senate.  If they still have control of that then there will be nasty grid-lock and we will be much worse off trying to fix the mess...

It's big finance, big military and corporate media... All incestuous corporations, cross pollinated, to create the mess we are in. Stopping "socialism" is a distraction sold to a group of "have nots" who have been corralled into believing that the Republicans are on their side.

He PRAYS FOR BALANCED BUDGETS AND DOESN"T BELIEVE IN ABORTION FOR VICTIMS OF INCEST OR RAPE. Do you think abolishing capital gains is going to help anyone but hedge fund managers? Who was the last Republican candidate whose economic policies made even a modicum of sense? I don't think Obama is a great president but MITT ROMNEY? Are you fucking kidding me? A rich asshole mormon who can't take a stand on anything? Republicans are desperate and I'm liking it. You think corporations are going to start hiring again if Romney gets elected? Maybe repatriate those windfall profits/sidelined cash? Republicans are generally religious which make them really fucking gullible.

Once the progeny are 17/18 give me all your money and let me fuck your aging but still attracive wife and your daughters. Get a knife, stab your brain, and exsanguinate. I recall a white house dinner under Bush where Steven Colbert was invited? Did you mail those invites? I can't formulate a logical statement. Really? "You're not worth saving" Now you are getting into pure comedy. Are you a fucking comedian or waiting for salvation by the computer screen?

"I don't think Obama is a great President..."

Holy shit you have to be kidding me... that is the understatement of the fucking millenium. Obama is one giant Marxist clusterfuck who really doesn't like anything about the country he leads, and is actively running it into the ground. Normally you ascribe to stupidity what you are are tempted to ascribe to venality, but in this case, Occam's razor actually supports the idea that Obama is destroying the country ON PURPOSE, because even a mental retard choosing randomly would make the right choices 50% of the time. There is virtually no public information about where he came from, how he got into college, what colleges he actually attended what his grades were, or how he supported himself for 40+ years. Admitted drug abuser. Lots of credible evidence that he is a committed Marxist, but you won't see that anywhere in the MSM.

There are plenty of reasons to dislike Romney but at least he's a real person who came from somewhere and has actually had to earn his own keep in the world.

Joseph McCarthy calling people marxist blablabla. SHUT THE FUCK UP. Take your quackpot beliefs back to some church harboring pedophile where you can pray that a Jew from 2000 years ago will guide you into an afterlife with a bunch of other lunatics. Admitted drug abuser? Because he smoked pot or did some cocaine? Your right wing views are hokey (just like religion) and you are part of a dying breed. Now its time for the pot smokers with expensive headphones aka youth of america who love to fuck and watch tv. Enjoy your time on this planet.

Give 'em hell LD. If one of their daughters came to them in tears saying she had been held down and raped by 2 Mexicans and is now pregnant they'd be tripping over their boots getting her to a doc for an abortion. F-ing hypoctritical GOP assholes. If their rich-ass sons knocked up a girl on his way to law school they'd be paying the girls' parents to make sure she did not have the kid. They slaughter and orphan plenty of kids in third world countries and never worry about their God shaking his fist. But if a woman makes a decision that is just and only her own business they are ready to string her on their cross. The day they get out of our bedrooms and private lives is the day I will again consider their party. Until then, the welfare Dems begrudgibgly have my vote. Lesser of 2 evils.

Wake up. It is called separation of church and state. So very uncomplicated.

I was trying to follow her logic until it got to 2 mexicans raping someones why two mexicans raping someones daughter carries more weight on the right & wrong scale of life than two frat boys raping their teacher is beyond me.

But then we quickly moved past that obvious bigotry, into the surreal world, where life is not life until its walking around on two legs in some third world country that O'Barry is bombing the shit out of...then, the flawed thought process being compounded (and I must say confounded) by some esoteric argument about the separation of church and state (that she supposedly respects) that O'Barry himself just violated with his "free birth control pills for coeds"  mandate/imposition on the church's hospitals/universities.

You're not getting it. Obama's decisions have been consistently  against his job (deciding for himself what is/not Constitutional)  and acting against the majority of working Americans, Congress, the Judicial Branch and all Law in general. Most recently he didnt simply bypass Congress but created a XO in direct opposition of our elected representatives, the American Tax Payer (by increasing our costs to support illegals), the Constitution. All for a personal benefit - hopes for a few more votes for himself.


He hates America and what is stands/stood for.
