Recently, Icelanders voted overwhelmingly, not to pay the foreign bankers their blood money. Foreign bankers (European and American), through the use of derivatives and other fraudulent paper schemes, racked up a huge bill for the people of Iceland to owe. Iceland went from first world status to high levels of unemployment, increasing homelessness and huge personal debt through taxation to a government, who owed its power to the bankers that they serviced. In a referendum the people almost unanimously said, no.
Now, I'm not sure whether the people of Iceland are simply smarter than the fluoride drinking, fast food pounding, TV programmed people of the US or whether the fact that their numbers are so much smaller makes them able to see their enemy with open eyes, but clearly, we the people of the US are still fighting with ourselves, rather than standing up to the enemy.
Ask a common man on the streets who it is that's messing up the country and he will no doubt say, the government. However, if you ask him which party and you will either here about the socialists currently running things or about the greed-head, warmongers who used to run things. Americans are angry. The economy is in bad shape. Despite the programming on TV, people do not believe it is getting better and there is a sense of doom across the political spectrum. People, with the exception of neocons and their followers, were not happy about the wars. Now, with the democrats in power, everyone seems to walk along like mental patients to the drug dispensary. People, with the exception of neocons and their followers, were not happy with the Patriot Act and the ever-expanding police state. Now, with the democrats in power, people seem to be saying, as long as the big government is protecting us, I guess we have to give up liberties in order to be safe and free.
People in America stand in a circular firing line, aiming at the other side with righteousness and anger, but seem unable to understand that they were placed in that circle by a big hand and programmed to hate and blame an enemy, who has in turn been placed across the circle and programmed as a counterpart.
