Election 2000: A Scam inside a Charade, Wrapped up in a Joke?

 

The Republic is dead. This is old news. "We" lost the Civil War - the Union was preserved at the cost of the Republic. This nation is not, and never was, a Democracy; though it may yet become one. This is not a Good Thing. Every Democracy that has ever existed has violently self destructed.

 

America today is, and has been for at least 90 years, a plutocracy (rule by the rich). The two party system is a scam. The Democratic and Republican Parties could be referred to as the Grater Hamiltonian and Lesser Hamiltonian Parties. Beholden to the plutocracy, the Parties and their career politicians serve their masters as faithfully as their avarice and intellect permit. Al Gore and George W. Bush are both creatures of the plutocracy. Election fraud is an American tradition. Dead Democrats still vote.

 

The civilian government itself may have been a scam since the Civil War. The Reconstruction Acts seem to have institutionalized Martial Law. Black budgets and denial of Security Clearances to the civilian government have allowed the military to remain largely beyond civilian scrutiny, at the least. The Legislative Branch has surrendered most of its power to the Executive and Judicial Branches. What power the Legislative retains is the power of ignorant men to pass foolish laws. The Executive Branch could be referred to as neo-fascistic with considerable accuracy. The Judicial Branch is terminally corrupt. [What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 50? "Your Honor."] All three branches are dominated by lawyers. A government of the Lawyers, by the Lawyers, for the Lawyers?

 

>From the vantage of the Right, much of the dominant media looks and sounds "liberal;" conversely, Leftists find the media to have a Right-wing slant. The seeming liberalism of the dominant media comes from the idealistic youth who are drawn to that profession, coloring the reportage with their voices. The rightist impression is caused by the dominant media's refusal to pay more than lip service to leftist dissenters and advocates for social change. The dominant media is owned by the ruling plutocrats. The dominant media in truth is neither Left nor Right but dedicated to the maintenance of the status quo. Boat-rockers from either wing are excluded from the fraudulently maintained, corporately approved middle. The ignorant play into the hands of the plutocrats. The informed are ridiculed by the ignorant.

 

The Framers of the Constitution believed that "Rights" had objective existence, like "gravity." They believed that Rights came to man from God; that governments could neither grant or remove rights. They believed that the purpose of the State was to protect and defend each individual's rights. The primary purpose of the Constitution was not merely to frame a government, but to create a government that was restrained from engaging in tyrannical acts, abuses of the Rights of the citizenry, by a preponderance of Constitutional safeguards. The Bill of Rights is a box of chains. It confers no Rights to the people, but enumerates Rights that the State cannot withdraw from the people. Today, every one of the Rights protected by the Bill of Rights have been compromised, whittled away, abrogated. What part of "not infringe" does the State not understand?

 

Today, the State believes that it is God; that it may dispense, or dispense with, Rights as it sees fit. We had Constitutional Rights, which were converted to Civil Rights by Constitutional Amendment after the Civil War. Civil Rights come, not from God, but from statutes enacted by the State. Today we have only Civil Rights and privileges. Privileges can be taxed, licensed or revoked at the will or whim of the State at any time. As one of the Founding Father put it: "no man's life, liberty or property are safe as long as the Legislature is in session."

 

America of the 1990s was in many ways a repeat of Germany of the 1930s. Today there are over 2,000,000 Americans in forced labor camps called "Correctional Facilities." One fourth of all the persons in prison on this planet are in prison in the United States. The United States has more lawyers per capita than any other nation. In the ten years of the 1990s more American were put behind bars than in the seven decades from 1920 to 1989. Four new prisons are built every week in the United States. Government is the single largest employer in the United States. "Law Enforcement" actually means "revenue stream."

 

Today we are in the early stages of a new Civil War, one between the Citizens and the Government. The Government has been pursuing this war for some time. It is taking a while for the population to catch on that the Government considers them the Enemy. It looks to me like we are well on our way to an American Hitler. Will he appear in decades, or days?
