All great truths begin as blasphemies.

Politicans Are Corrupt

This is what happens when you invest your hope in a politician:

What's taken place in the year since Obama won the presidency has turned out to be one of the most dramatic political about-faces in our history. Elected in the midst of a crushing economic crisis brought on by a decade of orgiastic deregulation and unchecked greed, Obama had a clear mandate to rein in Wall Street and remake the entire structure of the American economy. What he did instead was ship even his most marginally progressive campaign advisers off to various bureaucratic Siberias, while packing the key economic positions in his White House with the very people who caused the crisis in the first place. This new team of bubble-fattened ex-bankers and laissez-faire intellectuals then proceeded to sell us all out, instituting a massive, trickle-up bailout and systematically gutting regulatory reform from the inside. [Read it, we dare you]

The only thing you should be demanding from the government is freedom, and that you will have to fight them for.

George Orwell tried to send a warning in Animal Farm. The Wall Street Crowd is living in the farmhouse, and keeps assuring us that everybody is created equal, but some are more equal than others. FASCISM is the game, and the American people are the stooges. Power will keep sucking more to itself until there are only two places in society: Rich or Dirt Poor. Inaction will allow this to happen. We are all too civilized and distracted by Big Media and Youtube to do what is necessary. Anti-life feeds on life.
