The more it changes, the more it stays the same... by Robin in politics

As the nation’s political and economic leaders struggled to contain the 2008 financial meltdown, President George W. Bush famously summed the situation up: “If money doesn’t loosen up, this sucker will go down.”

Eleven years into the loose money recovery, this sucker is finally going down for reasons that have little to do with tight money and everything to do with the inconvenient fact that none of the structural problems have been addressed, much less actually fixed.

Wow.

The US is now a police state where everything is illegal and Americans have no rights.

The 1% could confiscate guns and order Americans to go to the concentration camps tomorrow, but the ruling class do not have the manpower and the camps have not built yet.

The elites seem to prefer to slowly kill every possible bit of freedom. Yesterday bump stocks were banned, today silencers will be banned, and pistols will be outlawed tomorrow.

Not only are the ruling powers determined to kill off the 99%, Americans are embracing their slavery with glee.

The media screams the USA must bomb Iran and Americans clap with delight.

The elites say debt doesn't matter and Americans agree.

Trump could decree that every American get their thumbs chopped off with machetes and Americans would jump with joy.

Have Americans ever read a history book?

Americans today could either be a zombie and willing accomplice to US wars, debt, and tyranny and remain silent, attack the government, or look for a way to escape.

Tyranny has reached the stage that libertarians should be joining militias.

If you were a millionaire politician with child porn planted on your computer, would you rock the boat by criticizing the police state or keep quiet?

No one should respect anyone who obeys laws or pays taxes. Anyone who loves tyranny is a traitor.

Never think that tyranny doesn't affect you.

Millions of people who have kept quiet or joined the Gestapo have been killed by tyranny.

The softcore tyranny with a smile in the USA will soon become hardcore tyranny.

You can't even trust the sports scores or weather reports today.

Americans are being hit on all sides now. The US is a police state, the media lies, and anyone who loves freedom is called a racist, nutjob, bot, spammer, or troll, and is banned, gets an IRS audit, is arrested, or killed.

This feels like Obama's 3rd term.

Americans scream that the US collapse is fake news and insist that the USA is a moral, free, and peaceful country with a balanced budget.

Has Trump arrested Clinton, freed Assange, opposed aid to Israel, arm sales to Saudi Arabia, trade wars, nationalizing industries, bailouts, subsidies, sanctions, debt, abortion, homosexuality, ending minimum wages, opening concentration camps, banning free speech, religious bans, and airline seat regulations?

Has Trump arrested the bankers, drained the swamp, decreased taxes, kicked out the illegal aliens, ended the Fed, ended the wars, ended welfare, ended Obamacare, and restored the Constitution?

Do you honestly believe that TSA groping doesn't happen?

Americans have no critical thinking skills, no knowledge about history, no personal responsibility, no ability to understand unintended consequences, and cannot see hypocrisy so all Americans can do is deny that the USA is collapsing, blame others, say Americans are just victims and nothing is their fault, and vehemently attack anyone who criticizes their beloved government overlords.

You get the feeling that a US president who hates the Bill of Rights and loves debt and war is a traitor.

You can't help thinking Americans who believe that the US isn't decaying are deluded and mentally ill.

The USA is collapsing into mass insanity.

How can Americans look in a mirror today without feeling complete disgust and shame or sleep at night?

The US feels like it is committing suicide.

Pete Buttigieg’s “Big Money In Politics” Video Blunder Goes Viral, 3 Million Views And Counting by MassTooter in politics

[–]dcjogger 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

There was a time when Americans believed in freedom.

The US is dying from a million cuts. Part of the reason the USA is a nanny police state now is that whenever there is a problem, the kneejerk reaction in the US is to call for a new law.

Nanny state laws are not the best solution, however. Nanny state laws lead to more laws, higher fines, and tougher sentences. Thirty years ago, DWI laws were enacted that led to DWI checkpoints and lower DWI levels. Seatbelt laws led to backseat seatbelt laws, childseat laws, and pet seatbelt laws. Car liability insurance laws led to health insurance laws and gun liability laws. Smoking laws that banned smoking in buildings led to laws against smoking in parks and then bans against smoking in entire cities. Sex offender registration laws led to sex offender restriction laws and violent offender registration laws.

Nanny state laws don’t make us safer, either. Nanny state laws lead people to be careless since they don’t need to have personal responsibility anymore. People don’t need to be careful crossing the street now because drunk-driving has been outlawed and driving while using a cellphone is illegal. People don’t investigate companies or carry out due diligence because businesses must have business licenses now.

The main point of nanny state laws is not safety. The main purposes of more laws are control and revenue generation for the state.

Another reason laws are enacted is because corporations give donations to lawmakers to stifle competition or increase sales.

Many laws are contradictory, too. Some laws say watering lawns is required, while other laws say watering lawns is illegal.

Many nanny state laws that aim to solve a problem can be fixed by using existing laws. If assault is already illegal, why do we need a new law that outlaws hitting umpires?

Nanny state laws are not even necessary. If everything was legal would you steal, murder, and use crack cocaine? Aren’t there other ways to solve problems besides calling the police? Couldn’t people educate or talk to people who bother them? Couldn’t people be sued for annoying behavior? Couldn’t people just move away? Even if assault was legal, wouldn’t attackers risk being killed or injured, too? Do people have consciences? Having no laws doesn’t mean actions have no consequences.

If there is no victim, there is no crime.

We don’t need thousands of laws when we only need 10.

Freedom is not just a one way street. You can only have freedom for yourself if you allow others to have it.

Should swimming pools be banned because they are dangerous? Hammers? Bottles? Rocks? Energy drinks? Pillows?

Where does it end?

Control freaks might get angry when a neighbor owns three indoor cats, but what did the neighbor take from them? Why should this be illegal? Is outlawing cats something a free country should do? Doesn’t banning everything sound like the opposite of freedom?

Instead of getting mad at people who like freedom, why don’t people realize that freedom is a two way street?

If you allow others to paint their house purple then you can, too.

If you allow others to own a gun then you can, too.

If you allow others to swear then you can, too.

If you allow others to gamble then you can, too.

Who wants to live in a prison?

Think. Question everything.

The US is an immoral bankrupt warmongering police state.

Those who warned about black helicopters and jack-booted thugs twenty years ago were called nutjobs.

Ten or fifteen years ago, patriotic and thinking Americans really started to worry about the direction of the USA.

Today most Americans know something is wrong, but they either don't know what or don't care.

The few Americans who are awake are increasingly becoming more pessimistic as the US obviously declines. The situation in USA looks hopeless.

Everyday the elites make more laws, the debt rises, wars are conducted, and Americans become more immoral.

Courts won't rule against unconstitutional laws, politicians don't repeal laws, the Gestapo has become more brazen, no one cares about government spending, wars are not being ended, and Americans are not flocking to churches and embracing morality.

Trump is either part of the establishment, naive, or being drugged or threatened to build the police state, increase the debt, and keep the wars going.

Some say the USA could last another 100 years, but that outlook seems unlikely.

Concerned Americans who once didn't take the US collapse seriously are wondering what to do.

Buying guns, gold, and food is good advice, but something more must be done other than just waiting for the US Ponzi economy to implode, riots to happen, Civil War 2.0 to break out, the concentration camps to open, and WWIII to start.

Having a few thousand prepared Americans won't do much good against the evil ruling class when they launch their final solution against the 99%.

The US needs millions of Americans to get out into the streets with pitchforks and torches now. Windows will need to be broken, people are going to be arrested, and people are going to die.

Americans must start making sacrifices today to wake people up, prepare, protest, and resist.

Americans need to talk to everyone to get the word out. Americans need to spend some money to start websites, print up flyers, and rent billboards.

If Americans remain quiet then there is nothing to stop the ruling powers from sending the 99% off to the gulags.

This is no joke.

Anyone who has eyes and studied a little bit of history can tell you what's going to happen.

When our overlords make a decree, they always sell it as a minor temporary law that only affects Muslims, junkies, sex offenders, homosexuals, illegal immigrants, or blacks. The 1% doesn't mention that the law will become permanent and more draconian.

No one cares if owning cows are illegal, yoga pants are illegal, teen driving is illegal, or smoking is illegal. The problem is what happens when your job is banned, the government steals your house, tortures your family, or sends you to the concentration camps.

The collapse of the USA is shocking. How can Americans sleep now?

What should Americans do? What will happen? How do you prepare? How do you resist tyranny?

We have four boxes with which to defend our freedom: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box. Americans are running out of options. The elites have taken control of the government, media, and the corporations. The 1% will not stop until everyone is enslaved or dead.

https://www.srnnews.com/jimmy-carter-us-more-like-oligarchy-than-democracy/

The US, like China, is a police state where no one has rights and anyone can be tortured, arrested, killed, or have their property stolen by the state at any time. Most people prefer to ignore it and pretend everything is fine, though.

http://www.gilmermirror.com/pages/full_story/push?article-The+Iron+Jaws+of+the+Police+State-+Trump-s+America+Is+a+Constitution-Free+Zone%20&id=27407667

Americans are too lazy and scared to protest, but even if 10 million Americans protested in Washington, our overlords would use water cannons, tear gas, torture, guns, and prisons to crush it.

Americans could use guerilla warfare and snipers to attack the government and elites, but the government could use the guns, fighter jets, helicopters, drones, aircraft carriers, tanks, and nuclear bombs that the American taxpayers paid for against the rebels.

Americans, like the Soviets, could just give up, drop out, pretend to work, stop paying taxes, and start disobeying the law and the whole rigged system could collapse.

http://uk.businessinsider.com/photos-of-russia-1990s-after-the-collapse-of-the-soviet-union-2017-3/#thousands-of-muscovites-march-to-red-square-carrying-a-giant-russian-tricolor-white-blue-and-red-flag-celebrating-the-failure-of-the-three-day-hard-line-communist-coup-attempt-in-moscow-august-22-1991-1

Another option to escape tyranny as conditions worsen is for Americans to just lay low, become stateless and nameless, and wander the world as nomads.

Part of the reason Americans are not resisting now is that they are defeated, degraded, divided, and distracted. Why go out and risk getting arrested and killed fighting tyranny when they have weed, beer, food stamps, A/C, and TV? Young people don't care about freedom because they think living in a police state is normal and old people don't care because they will be dead soon. Only middle-aged people who know what freedom was like and might be still alive for another 30-40 years seem to care.

The USA has crossed the line, but knowing when the revolution starts is difficult because the growth of the police state has been gradual.

Until the government closes churches or burns books, or you get beaten by the police or your friend is shot by the FBI, Americans may not really believe that they live in a police state.

Being a large country didn't stop the USSR from being locked down.

The ruling class and the media have studied history well and have slowly chipped away freedom over the past 50 years. The media plays Americans like a fiddle. The elites can manipulate Americans to give up their freedom easily.

http://dailycaller.com/2017/06/12/gop-rep-media-brainwashes-american-people-video/

Our overlords could ban baseball and apple pie and Americans would cheer.

All the government needs to do to get Americans to give up their guns is to use a real or staged shooting and non-stop 24/7 news coverage about the dangers of guns and play slanted stories about the success of gun laws in Australia or Japan to get Americans to register their guns this year and then use another shooting next year to convince Americans to accept gun confiscation and microchip implants.

If the elites want to make Americans give up their freedom then they take the worst case and use endless stories maximizing the dangers of a tragedy and minimizing and ignoring the arguments for liberty.

If the 1% wants all men to register as sex offenders, the media will use a horrifying story about a white man who raped and killed a 7 year old girl.

The ruling class can print any amount of money to fund high salaries or give benefits to pay cops and soldiers to arrest or fire on Americans. The elites can lower standards so that low IQ people, felons, illegal immigrants, and tattooed people can join the military or become police officers. The 1% can use the UN to round up Americans if they can't recruit enough cops and soldiers.

The media may soon use stories about mandatory Ebola quarantines or a Russian invasion to brainwash Americans to go to government concentration camps willingly.

The water and electricity still works and government checks are still good now, but when the US Ponzi economy crashes, riots break out, food runs out, and a civil war and WWIII starts, Americans will wish that they had planned and prepared better.

Americans need to be like the founding fathers now and do everything they can to fight for freedom.

Nothing is more important than freedom. Everyone is born for a reason.

The US economy will collapse and Americans will go to the concentration camps, the question is when?

Americans scream that that the US debt will be paid off by mining gold on asteroids, but what if the cost to mine the gold costs more than the gold?

If you spend $1 billion to get to the asteroid, but only can mine $1 billion worth of gold then what did you gain?

Would the gold be radioactive?

What if the asteroid has no gold?

Would a huge supply of space gold lower gold prices?

Could synthetic gold be made on Earth?

What if the spaceship blows up?

Are Americans really this stupid?

Most people would prefer to ignore a hard fact rather than face it.

Soon Americans will be wearing Mao suits and giving Nazi salutes.

The USA today is much less free than when King George ruled.

Americans are little more than slaves now. The US no longer has a democracy, Americans have zero rights, and everything is illegal.

You know that you live in a complete police state when you have no free speech, freedom of religion, gun rights, freedom from warrantless searches and seizures, freedom from torture, and the government can arrest you and kill you without trial.

If the government bans things because of safety, drugs, terrorism, or the children, why couldn't they ban airplanes, skydiving, cash, belts, books, the Internet, churches, parties, cars, pens, swimming pools, tattoos, hammers, bottles, energy drinks, pillows, and coffee?

When will it end?

During the Wild West in the US, everyone could carry guns, businesses were not licensed, no one had Social Security numbers, there were no sales, income, or property taxes, and drugs, alcohol, smoking, gambling, and prostitution were legal. There was little government, yet people lived and had freedom.

http://www.harrybrowne.com/GLO/DrugWar.htm

The government today is regulating every area of everyone's life. The government wants to tell us what to do, what to think, where to live, how to live, what to wear, and what to eat.

Saying you live in a free country with a straight face is difficult when everything is illegal.

How can anyone take the moral high ground on anything when we are all criminals?

In the US, your body is not your body, your property is not your property, and your kid is not your kid.

Government is not the solution to problems. Government IS the problem. Alcohol prohibition failed. The Soviet Union failed.

http://www.bradford-delong.com/2008/02/why-the-soviet.html

The US has security cameras, license plate readers, checkpoints, redlight cameras, speed cameras, FBI facial and voice recognition, curfews, gun bans, NSA wiretapping, the end to the right to silence, free speech bans, searches without warrants, private prisons, mandatory minimums, 3 strikes laws, DNA databases, CISPA, SOPA, NDAA, IMBRA, private prison quotas, no knock raids, take down notices, no fly lists, terror watch lists, Constitution free zones, stop and frisk, 3 strikes laws, kill switches, National Security Letters, DNA databases, kill lists, FBAR, FATCA, Operation Chokepoint, TSA groping, civil forfeiture, CIA torture, NDAA indefinite detention, secret FISA courts, FEMA camps, laws requiring passports for domestic travel, IRS laws denying passports for tax debts, gun and ammo stockpiles, laws outlawing protesting, police militarization, and Jade Helm.

Anyone who supports the police state is just a tool for the elites.

Too bad Americans are surrendering liberty so easily.

Why did the USA fight for freedom against the British, Hitler, North Korea, and Saddam if America just ended up as a police state?

All those Americans soldier died in vain.

Has liberty killed as many people as socialism did in Nazi Germany, the USSR, China, and Cambodia?

Freedom was not responsible for concentration camps, gulags, the Cultural Revolution, and killing fields.

If you want more freedom and safety, legalize everything, close prisons, and encourage everyone to own a gun.

Americans are whistling down to the concentration camps and you're going to say nothing?

Think.

The frantic efforts of am exploitive elite to eliminate dissent only accelerates the regime’s path to collapse.

Regimes that are losing public support always make the same mistake: rather than fix the source of the loss of public trust–the few enriching themselves at the expense of the many– the regime reckons the problem is dissent: if we suppress all dissent, then everyone will accept their diminishing lot in life and the elites can continue on their merry way.

I just don't trust any of it. Every time I read something about how there's been another ridiculous climb of the Dow Jones, there is a part of me that goes, 'That can't be good.' None of this is real money. You know what I mean? It's not like there is actually more of anything. It's just ideas. When people are getting richer and richer but they're not actually producing anything, it can't end well.

I’ve been emphasizing the importance of making the world your oyster for many years. Most people—and this is especially true of North Americans—tend to stay pretty much where they were born. Acting like medieval serfs or even vegetables rooted to where they were planted. Neither is a good strategy for a person. Certainly not today.

You want to broaden your horizons and keep your options open.
