The American Trance

Democrats Aren't Immune

In order to understand why this trance persists, we have to look at a couple of issues.

Do you want to be entertained, or informed? Do you prefer C-Span or "American Idol"? Did you VOTE for a contestant on "American Idol"?

Do you feel a disconnect between what you believe to be true, and what you're told is true? If so, you're in the netherland between mainstream media and the truth.

Not everyone feels this disconnect, the majority of Americans simply don't want to know. These are the ones who vote for "American Idol", and ferverently pray for their favorites. As though it matters. Many people I know simply do not want to feel the outrage. They don't want to live their lives that way; simpler to go to work, take care of what's important to them, and assume everything will work itself out. This is America, what could go wrong?

It isn't a matter of intelligence or education. It often is a matter of political party, but I'll discuss that later. Smart people don't necessarily feel a need to speak truth to power, research the source of the facts they're presented with, or even catch the discrepencies that cause some of us to experience cognitive dissonance. For whatever reasons, their life experiences have led them to a place where going along to get along is normal. Why experience turmoil if you don't have to?

Here's the danger: The top half of one percent, the corporate elite, are counting on this apathy. How else to explain the first order of business for the Bush administration after his theft of the White House? The estate tax, cutting the uber rich's taxes to virtually nothing. We, the people these parasites live off of, are being raped in ways that only they and their financial managers can imagine. Obscure rules wrapped in benign sounding laws have a profound affect on us.

Perhaps the people in the trance are the sensible ones. Why make yourself crazy about something you can't change? They're right, we can't change it unless we identify it. We live in a capitalistic society, greed is admired and envied. This is America. Maybe someday you'll be that rich, and get all those benefits.

The people who control us are the people who pay for our "representatives" to get elected. Why else would the burning issues be how much of our tax money we should give to Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Whatever? Our "representatives" are representing their corporate donors. If they were representing us, they would be discussing our quality of life issues, like affordable health care, the homelessness that sprang to life under the Reagan administration (and we've come to accept as normal), why both parents have to work to maintain a household, what's happening to children raised by strangers or raising themselves. If they represented us they wouldn't have allowed usury, while making it more difficult to file for bankruptcy and make a fresh start. Can debtor's prisons be far behind? Do you see the pattern here? No health insurance, or only "catastrophic" coverage. Get hurt on the job or anywhere, miss a few weeks of paychecks, use credit cards for living expenses, or to keep your car on the road, interest rates on your cards go up, you owe medical bills that realistically you couldn't pay off in five lifetimes. . .

But in the Capitol they're milling around, discussing bills and laws that by and large are only remotely connected to our lives. George Bush is not stupid, he's clever, manipulative and cruel. And he belongs to the donor class, which donates to both parties, albeit more to the Republicans. This is the class that uses all of the infrastructure that this country has to offer, it's freedom, what used to be clean air and water, the integrity that was the U.S.A. Bush is giving them our national parks to mine their resources, allowing them to pollute OUR air and water, while contributing nothing except campaign money.

It always comes down to this: we can no longer allow our government to be funded by and at the bidding of these self-centered, out-of-touch parasites. Their great-great grandfather may have invented Gillette razors, or paper clips, whatever their fortune is based on it most certainly was not taxed. We must have public financing of elections, or not bother to vote at all. We must re-instate the equal time provision, that mandated both sides (all sides?) be aired on television. Reagan decided that cable television obviated the need for equal time.

When we continually hear that Hillary Clinton will absolutely win if she runs, because she has more money in her campaign fund than anyone else, we shouldn't feel a little unease. We should be outraged. When money trumps the issues that matter, when money is no longer tacitly accepted but overtly required as the measure of a candidate's potential success, we're not even close to being a democracy anymore.

Let's keep it simple. To break the trance, repeat the mantra "Public Financing of Campaigns". Campaign Finance Reform, as a phrase puts people to sleep. Putting limits on what can be spent, time limits on the campaign itself, and neutralizing the invisible bloodsuckers isn't as complicated as they would have us believe.

They need us, we don't need them.

Excerpt from Chapter Two of the book, El Comunismo Ruso

The real objectives of communism are revealed by its "spiritual father", Marx, in a letter written to his co-religionist, Baruch Levi:

[i]In this new organization of Humanity, the children of Israel, scattered to all corners of the earth, will be transformed, with no opposition at all, into the ruling class, above all, they will gather the working masses under their exclusive control. The Governments of the nations composing the future universal Republic will fall, without force, into the hands of the Israelites, thanks to the victory of the proletariat. Private property then will be eliminated by governments of the Jewish race who will administer, everywhere, the public funds.

Thus the promise of the Talmud will be realized, according to which, when the time of the Messiah comes, the Jews will possess all the riches of all the peoples of the earth.

This Confession of Marx is of enormous importance. The workers, for him, are no more than instruments which the Jews must use to make themselves masters of the world and, as the author of Das Kapital says cynically, administer its riches. Marx, the son of a usurious moneylender, grandson and heir of a rich rabbi, and married to a bourgeois German woman, was not a "pariah of the Earth, slave without bread". On the other hand, he was certainly a Jewish patriot.

In another part of the letter to Baruch Levi cited above, Marx wrote:

The Jewish people, considered collectively, will be their own Messiah. Their reign over the Universe will be obtained by the unification of the other human races, the elimination of frontiers and of the monarchies, which are the bulwark of individuality, and the establishment of a universal Republic which recognizes the rights of its Jewish citizens.

The wealthy bourgeois Haim Kissel Mordekai Marx, was not an anti-capitalist in the correct sense of the word. If he had been a true anti-capitalist he would have castigated, in his demagoguic works, the authentic capitalists, that is to say, those who live on capital, on scriptural money, on "Book-Money", created by the bankers by a simple annotation in their books. on credit-money, called by Trotsky himself, son-in-law of a prosperous banker, "false money that's legal tender". More--oh paradox! when he speaks of credit-money, of usurous finance, international and national, Marx is an authentic reactionary, to use an expression dear to the comrades of the Communist Party.

If he had been an authentic anti-capitalist, Marx would have mentioned, in his communist works, the numerous Jewish capitalists who already at that time infested Europe. Examples are not lacking: the Pereyres, the Camondos, the Peixottos, the Mayers, the Reineches, the Mendelssohns, the Schneiders, and, above all, that "star of five points" constituted of the Rothschild Empire in Frankfort, London, Paris, Vienna, and Naples. An accumulation of riches obtained without work or any benefit at all to the community-but rather, to their detriment, as seen in every century. This would have been a beautiful example of destructive capitalism. But Marx keeps a discreet silence. For him, the only "capitalists" are directors of companies, industrialists, land-holders, and even experts and skilled workers who refuse to be reduced to the level of day-laborers with no position or benefits.

For Marx, evidently, the capitalism of the Soviet state, baptized "communism" by the ignorant masses, is nothing but a medium, a tool to achieve their true goal: the world imperialism of Zion.


This is a crazy world. What can be done? Amazingly, we have been mislead. We have been taught that we can control government by voting. The founder of the Rothschild dynasty, Mayer Amschel Bauer, told the secret of controlling the government of a nation over 200 years ago. He said, "Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation and I care not who makes its laws." Get the picture? Your freedom hinges first on the nation's banks and money system.
That's why we advocate using the Liberty Dollar [link] , to understand the monetary and banking system. Freedom is connected with Debt Elimination for each individual. Not only does this end personal debt, it places the people first in line as creditors to the National Debt ahead of the banks. They don't wish for you to know this. It has to do with recognizing WHO you really are in A New Beginning: A Practical Course in Miracles [link] .

You CAN take back your power [link] and stop volunteering to pay taxes to the collection agency for the BEAST [link] . You can take back that which is yours, always has been yours and use it to pay off your debts. And you can send others to these pages to discover what you are discovering.

What a stupendous, what an incomprehensible machine is man! Who can endure toil, famine, stripes, imprisonment & death itself in vindication of his own liberty, and the next moment . inflict on his fellow men a bondage, one hour of which is fraught with more misery than ages of that which he rose in rebellion to oppose: Thomas Jefferson

"For in a Republic, who is 'the country?' Is it the Government which is for the moment in the saddle? Why, the Government is merely a servant - merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them." -- Mark Twain [Samuel Langhornne Clemens] (1835-1910)

There is no real 'King' of David, A-d... Besides the Hebrew word DaViD (Dalet Vav Dalet looks like this if we were to transliterate it: DoD! As in...Department of Defense! Heh! See how it works? ;)
