The Republican plan to defund Obama’s illegal executive actions failed because you can’t bluff when no one in or out of Congress believed for a second that they were serious. They backed down this time, they backed down during the debt ceiling debate, they backed down on funding Obama Care and they have backed down over every budget deal since they took power in 2010 because they aren’t any more interested in cutting the government than Democrats are.
We live in a world where wealth and power has always been controlled by a fractional elite who claim to use their wealth and armies to protect us. No one in possession of that kind of power has ever given it up voluntarily. Expecting them to start now just because they are Republicans is a pipe dream. Mitch McConnell’s promise to never again shut down the government is a promise to never refuse the government anything.
The biggest threat facing the future of America is 535 people in Washington who are spending 436 million dollars an hour that doesn’t belong to them. They will never undo Obama’s unconstitutional actions because the people in power need millions more peasants every year to fund the Ponzi scheme that our country has become, and they will never repeal Obama Care because every day it puts more of our money under their control.
The agreement that the United states signed onto when they gave up their sovereignty in exchange for a federal system is no longer in force, and we don’t have the power or the will to do anything about it. The 535 people I named as our nation’s greatest threat are really only about 300 traitorous thieves because there are a substantial group of Congressmen who are fighting for us, but the past weeks shenanigans are an indication of how little support they have among we the victims.
At its peak during the Great Depression, the percentage of working age Americans who were unemployed reached 24.75 percent. Today, in the midst of Obama’s recovery, fewer than half of American adults have full time jobs. The 2008 financial crisis cost millions of Americans their jobs and homes, the recovery has made billions for banks and international corporations, but for most working people it is another Great Depression.
The recent West Coast dock workers strike, had it gone on another month, would have shown how vulnerable we are because we don’t make enough stuff here anymore to sustain our own economy. Our government has sponsored the moving of factories outside the United States for 40 years so the powers that be can avoid the rules and regulations they have burdened the rest of us with.
I keep expecting a crash. I keep looking for signs that it is just around the corner, like I’m rooting for it or something. What I am rooting for is for this scam of a government to fail, and the sooner the better because the alternative is to watch the continued decimation of the individual’s ability to work and prosper. It is a pessimistic view, but I have done the math, this is a pessimistic time for what was once the greatest nation on Earth.
