A lesson in what is going on
This is what I have been saying for months.
The entire reason for this idiotic $2 Trillion in [non-]stimulus spending bills is for one reason alone: To jack up taxes on some people, and to eliminate taxes on a little more than 50% of the people.
That ensures that those in power will stay in power — because they are giving the majority of the voters a free ride — while ransacking the other people and wrecking the economy in the process.
Ultimately, because it wrecks the economy, it ensures that the government will be able to take over private-sector business in order to provide "stability" (when they in fact created the instability), and then we are well down the road to socialism —perhaps so far down that road that we can't turn back.
I say the word "socialism", but if you look up the word "socialism", that is really not what is being created. The real word is "fascism".
That's right, fascism.
Most people hear the word "fascism", and think it's some kind of curse word, because it has been mis-used for so long, and because Nazi Germany was considered a fascist state, the word "fascist" has become synonymous with "Nazi".
But the word "fascist" does not mean "Nazi", so put aside your pre-conceptions for a minute.
Fascism is defined as follows:
Fascists aim to create a single-party state in which the government is led by a dictator who seeks unity by requiring individuals to subordinate self-interest to the collective interest of the nation or a race.
That is exactly what is happening. A single party is seeking to dominate the landscape by creating a dependent lower-class that consists of more 50% of the population, ensuring their votes since the government in power is essential to their survival. (Or so they think.)
Every message from the party currently in power is that not paying exorbitant taxes is "selfish" — in other words, it is against "the common good".
And that, friends, is not Capitalism, it is Fascism.
Historians have long maintained that capitalist society tends to transform into a fascist society as the populace become complacent and allows the government to take over. In other words, the citizens willingly hand over their freedoms to their government, piece-by-piece, until the government controls everything.
It is frightening to see just how quickly that transformation is accelerating, and it is being propelled by fear. It is fear generated by the very person who campaign on a promise to eliminate the "politics of fear". Every word from the man is the exact opposite of the true situation.
After he spends $2 trillion, he calls the deficit "inherited", and says that now he has to fix it by raising $1 trillion in new taxes. Is everyone getting this?
And with the mainstream media in the bag, there is nobody to hold him accountable, and nobody to scrutinize everything he is doing.
This is frightening stuff.
This is what we should be afraid of, not a bunch of banks.
