The state of the nation, our nation, is not so complicated as one might think. We now have “Occupy Wall Street” (OWS) springing up almost out of nowhere, with no leadership, no funding, and no direction. Believe this and I will sell you a bridge – call me, I hear the Brooklyn Bridge is available.
There is, however, one very cogent message coming from the occupiers. It is that the top 1% of wealth in this country controls the power. Abraham Lincoln was apparently wrong, at least for our time, when he proclaimed at Gettysburg: :”…government of the people, by the people, and for the people…”
Today and for over one hundred years, we do not have a free and independent Congress, unions bought and paid for our current President, and our Supreme Court suffers from “absolute power corrupts absolutely”, no longer deciding cases on their merits, but instead using ideology. Money derived from the 1%, dictates who our candidates are, dictates how our representatives vote, and attempts to shape populist opinion through a media void of integrity. We have a government monetary system perennially dictated by Goldman Sachs alumni, regardless of the administration. It should be no suprise that Goldman Sachs is the common hobby horse of the 1%. It is where they play.
While the world has always been about wealth retaining and wielding power. This country, with brief lapses, has muddle through despite the wealthy for 222 years [the Republic we know was officially started March 1, 1789] , because we are a republic with a great founding document.
Now an amalgamation of often disassociated factions has come together to bring us “Occupy Wall Street”, with the only overriding theme being capitalism does not work and the 1% control the world. The solutions from these folks stem from eliminating money to pure distribution of wealth in a socialist system. Is this really grass roots with no leadership? If you believe so, then answer this question, how do they manage to have a finance committee?
Here is a good question. Is this a quest for the uber 1% to gain even more power by throwing off the yoke of that restraining document, the Constitution? Someone has to be orchestrating this supposedly grass roots event and providing the money, so much money that they have a finance committee. We have seen reports that George Soros, a long time proponent of abolishing the Constitution and creating a one world government under a new world order, has his various tentacled organizations heavily involved. George Soros is one of the 1% of the 1% worldwide. Is this their, the 1% of the 1%, world conquest using ultimate financial power? Remember, we have prepared the masses for this by dumbing down the schools, offering only radical socialist speak at universities, and by a radical transformation of the media – we no longer have a fourth estate to keep folks and government honest.
Do we break the yoke, involving both major political parties, of the 1%, and lurch toward a one world new world order, without our Constitution, under socialism led by George Soros, et al., through the amalgamation of disassociated factions in favor of the 1% of the 1%, or do we modify our Constitution to provide term limits, lobbying controls, and elimination of contributions by any organization: union, corporation, or association? Do we, by a Constitutional amendment, continue to limit individual contributions, and allow political speak (ads) only from individuals?
While the OWS people are right only about the 1%, their methods and resources are absolutely the wrong way for this country to go. Ask yourself, are the occupiers useful idiots of the devious 1% of the 1%.
