PISSED OFF NATION

I couldn’t agree more. No matter which candidate is elected, everything will get worse. We are just swapping puppets. Nothing will change. The downward spiral will continue. So it goes.

The Seventy Percent People are going to be pissed off no matter who wins this election and that is a very important social dynamic I believe is vastly under appreciated by the majority of mainstream pundits and analysts out there.  This is also very distinct from the environment that prevailed in 2008.  Four years ago, the financial markets were crashing and the economic future of America was circling the toilet bowl, yet a majority of Americans embraced the potential of a young, inexperienced biracial politician from Illinois who was saying all of the right things.  Despite the gigantic disappointment he has proven to be as President, there is no denying that he had all of the Democrats and most Independents under his spell on this day four years ago.

Fast forward to 2012 and the country isn’t “divided” as mainstream media talking heads like to say.  The country is pissed off. Genuine and legitimate frustration permeates the land from sea to shining sea and rightly so.  Ever since the banker coup of 2008, crony capitalism has been institutionalized as the only real way to make money. If you aren’t connected or “too big to fail,” sorry but America isn’t the place for you.  What makes the economic nightmare so much worse is that it is being coupled with a complete and total decimation of civil liberties.  One by one the Bill of Rights is being ignored and indeed trampled on systemically by the political and economic oligarchs emboldened by their successful takeover of the executive, legislative and for the most part judicial branches of government.  Many Independents disagreed with Obama’s economic philosophy but gave him a pass because he promised to end the wars overseas and restore civil liberties.  Instead, what we got was a President who signed the NDAA on New Year’s Eve 2011, which included section 1021, allowing for the indefinite detention of American citizens without trial until the “end of hostilities.”  Well, because now know the Orwellian “war on terror” is never-ending, the indefinite detention is forever.  The worst part is that Obama claims he didn’t want these powers yet when a group of high profile plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against section 1021 and won a ruling deeming it unconstitutional, what was the President’s response?  He appealed it to death until he found a panel of judges to agree with him.  Not only did he want this power, he seems to crave it.  Another well deserved Noble Peace Prize.

The above is just one example of many.  His kill list, which the Administration now refers to as the “disposition matrix,” grows by the day to include people with zero affiliation with Al-Qaeda, and Obama seems to relish in the absolute power of being judge, jury and executioner.  Tragically, a President Romney will be no different.  He is already on record supporting the NDAA, war without Congressional approval and we heard his complete and total support of Obama’s drone strategy during the third and final debate.  Sure, people that care about civil liberties will vote for Romney saying that he will at least be better on economic policy, yet that is the exact same thing people did with Obama in reverse.  They ended up being disappointed with him and Romney will disappoint as well. These guys are both big government, crony capitalist puppets and that’s the bottom line.

Another thing that must be considered is basic math about the U.S. political landscape.  According to the latest Gallup poll, 32% of Americans identify themselves as Democrats, 28% as Republican and 38% as Independents.  Now of course, amongst the Independents a majority lean more toward one party or the other, but this is much less the case today than it was in 2008 or in any election prior.  Furthermore, the mere fact that so many choose to identify in this manner makes it clear that they are unhappy with either of these political gangs.  These Independents want legitimate third, fourth or fifth party options but instead end up herded into the mainstream parties by a sophisticated corporate scam, part of which centers around the Commission on Presidential Debates, the gatekeeper of these circuses which ensures no alternative candidates can debate and excludes any difficult or uncomfortable questions.

There was a fantastic article written in the Huffington Post yesterday that examines the rampant frustration within the Republican Party titled: Frightened Republicans Try to Close Down Election Competitors, Such as Gary Johnson.  I thought the most powerful quote was:

Both the Republican and the Democratic presidential candidates talk about liberty, freedom, fiscal responsibility, free enterprise, choice and the Constitution. But neither candidate believes in those principles. Elect either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, and government will be bigger, spending will be higher, regulation will be more intrusive, the military will be fighting more wars, more service personnel will be dying, more money will be wasted abroad, civil liberties of more people will be violated, and more privacy of more citizens will be invaded. Overall, the free society will continue to retreat.

The above is invariably true and brings me to the key point of this article.  Should Romney win, the 28% of Americans that identify as Republican will be thrilled, and the remaining 72% will be largely upset and on edge.  Should Obama win, similarly, the 32% registered Democrat with be thrilled and the remaining 68% will be upset and on edge.  Hence, the 70% referred to in the title of this article.  This is a recipe ripe for social unrest and it will be coming to our shores as I outlined recently in The Global Spring.

Personally, I am done with the two part system and will be voting for Gary Johnson.  I am not playing their games any longer and I will not fall for any more of their scams.  In my brief voting years I have pulled the lever for both Republicans and Democrats, but I do not think I will vote for any one of them ever again.  I implore everyone to do the same, no matter who you vote for, vote third party.  The only wasted vote I see is one for either Mitt Romney or Barrack Obama.

    Well said and thank you! Anyone voting for Romney or Obama can start walking stooped over because that is the position you’re going to be in-bent over-for the next four years no matter who ‘wins’.

    The only way we can break the iron grip of the Siamese party, which is supported by the six conglomerates which own 90% of the media, is to encourage a third party. A third party has to start out small and slowly build. If you waste your vote on R or D one cannot get established.

    On the East coast there are eight refineries which supply 10% of US refined products. Six are major refineries. If the four largest were taken out by four jet liners crashing into them it would have taken out about 7% of US refinery capacity and most of the northeast’s capacity. These Refineries are located within close proximity to each other in Philly. DE, and south NJ. Think about the consternation one refinery fire or a broken pipe line has caused. Style has always trumped substance with the media and 3000 dead causes much more emotional outpouring than catastrophic economic damage.

    The psychological damage enabled the passage of numerous loss of individual freedom laws to protect us from the boogeyman and allow the build up of preparation for martial lay and facilities to protect the Lords from the serfs. If a capable, determine and organised entity wished to do harm to the people of the US. not the government, the safest places to be would be DC, Sacramento, Albany and the two Springfields, IL and MA.

    I’ve finally decided to give up voting.
    I’ve been voting for 30 years and I’ve only made things worse.
    And ,due to the realization that my choices as a voter have only made things worse ,I’ve decided to defer my vote to those who are better informed and more politically astute than I.

    Unlike the boomer generation, i fully expect the hero generation to make all the right choices that puts US back on the path of a civilized society.

    Another green shoot sighting!

    For the first time since the Great Recession hit, American households are taking on more debt than they are shedding, an epochal shift that might augur a more resilient recovery.

    For two of the last three quarters, American households’ total outstanding borrowing on things like credit cards, mortgages and auto loans has increased after falling for 14 consecutive quarters before then. Some economists even see an end to the long, hard process of deleveraging — as they refer to the cutting of debt relative to income or the nation’s economic output. That process, they say, has been a central reason for the extraordinary sluggishness of the recovery.

    This increase in household debt is a sign of desperation, not recovery. There are two times when households increase debt, when things are going well and when things are going very bad. It defies credibility to think that household finances have improved when unemployment remains historically high and food stamp usage is at all-time highs.

    To me, the key indicator of the next stage of the economic collapse may be college loan debt. It is the only debt sector that has remained strong and grown since 2008. Graduates who can’t find work have returned to school with the objective of improving their employment prospects and they are going more deeply into debt in order to do so. This is the last gasp of the education bubble which Instapundit and others have been warning for the last three years. Once awareness of the fact that more academic credentials do not ensure employment, only a deeper debt hole, begins to sink in with parents and students, we can expect to see a dramatic decline in education-related borrowing.

    Note this section in particular: “Americans have also improved their personal balance sheets by slashing their outstanding credit card debt to $855 billion today from more than $1 trillion in 2008, according to Federal Reserve data. But student debt has continued its inexorable march higher, a “worrisome” trend that economists say could stop young workers from starting new households or could eat into their spending on other goods and services.”

    It is interesting to see that the idea there is a relationship between debt growth and economic growth is finally percolating into the mainstream economic coverage. Back in 2002, when I first publicly warned about the potential effects of the housing bubble on the financial system, almost no one understood what I was talking about. Perhaps in another 10 years, it will finally be acknowledged that there hasn’t been any economic growth since 2001 as all of it has been nothing more than an artifact of expanding debt.

    We have to see politicians for what they are… wolves in sheep clothing. A third party won’t change things. Look at Europe with all their parties and one sees the same pattern of politicians bought off.

    For some reason people vote for the same politicians with their wide smiles and empty promises…wolves in sheep clothing. When will the gullibility end? The fact is the worst people in our society become politicians. It seems to be built into the political system.

    The best thing we could do at this point is all stay home. There is no one to vote for. The system seems rigged against the people.

    Yes, ron, you spelled ‘dick’ correctly. You fucked up three words earlier by using ‘your’ instead of ‘you’re’ – I am an expert on quite a few things, grammar and syntax being among them. I have yet to determine any area in which you demonstrate any degree of competence beyond that which my neighbor’s cat could manage. Can you lick your own balls? Can you even identify your balls? If so, then you’d have a fighting chance of holding your own against the cat. If not, just kill yourself.

    You’re a fuckwit.

    Any number of people have commented on your ~style~ as well as other stupidities. Mostly you don’t notice which is just as well — reacting shows your true colors.
