The American government no longer needs to slaughter union demonstrators or assassinate elected liberal officials or resort to the type of murderous terrorism it inflicts on probably most other countries on the planet (e.g., the history of our "government" in Latin and South America alone is horror incarnate).
No, thanks mostly to Bill Clinton and his lying and treacherous administration, the new name of the game is to emasculate the middle and lower classes with financial terrorism.
George Bush simply picked up where Clinton left off and pushed the "Clinton Doctrine" of an unregulated financial infrastructure to new heights of shifting the pitiful percentage of the economy in the hands of the working class into the claws of America's astronomically rich elites (the "Have's"). In a word, Clinton gave the rich EVERYTHING. Bush just followed his lead.
It is beyond tragic to think the economic chaos we now wake to every morning is simply a composite of "trends", or maybe just bad luck, or the roll of historical dice.
It is suicidally imbecile to think that.
Rather the world we wake up to every morning is an elaborately constructed dynamic mostly started by Bill Clinton and his Judas DLC. Said differently, it is simply a straight jacket strategy of the American Government (and we say American Government since it was created by both parties of our status quo one party system) to kill the dream of American Democracy.
Indeed, that is now the chief function of the American Government, i.e., to stamp out the concept of "democracy" in the United States once and for all.
In its place? The fancy word is "oligarchy", but in ordinary language, it's a Dictatorship of the Rich. It's also a police state, but the financial strangulation of the American people is working so well the violence of preemptive military terrorism can mostly be saved for other countries.
Of course, this is overlooking 9/11, which nearly the entire planet now profoundly believes was engineered by American pug/fascists and their international terrorist friends (or is it fiends?). There are countless sites on the web where virtually encyclopedic evidence for this scenario is objectively documented. Plus, it only takes about 15 seconds to answer the question of what political party benefitted MOST from 9/11, and what Middle Eastern country benefitted MOST from 9/11? Duh and double Duh.
However, after 9/11 served its purpose, most of the economic infrastructure of "our country" (what a laugh!), has been a nuclear reaction of unlimited greed. After a country or people have been financially destroyed, the police state can take a kind of break. We have so many notches on our gun of how to destroy the economies of other countries, Clinton and his pond scum cronies secretly worked out how to destroy our OWN economy.
Of course, the destruction never extends to Paris Hilton, Rupert Murdoch, etc., but only to the rags left of American's middle and lower classes. This really shouldn't even be called a "class war", since the war is already over. Look at the going ballistic rates on your credit cards, mortgages, and now totally ludicrous "investments". Look at what's happening to your health plans with $500 deductibles and retirement plans which more and more YOU have to pay for. Look at your reduced salaries and your family where everyone now has to work except the dog.
ALL OF THIS GOES BACK TO BILL CLINTON and his collection sly dog lawyers who simply passed the baton to the Bush Royal Family.
And oh yes, who was Obama's first appointment? Indeed, his very chief of staff? Hmmm, more Clinton legacy since it was that documented Palestine-hater, Rahm Emanuel, a prime player who got nauseatingly rich helping Clinton criminally (literally!) trash the America Dream -- clearly not "his" dream since he clearly had and has other real estate on his mind.
So, the beat goes on. Of course, if push comes to shove and the public sector starts getting the message that all this alleged financial chaos is not a matter of biting the bullet of random history, but a very consciously constructed cattle pen to keep human beings so financially broken they barely have the time and energy to keep food on the table for their kids, much less stand up for democracy.
God forbid, they might actually realize the American Government itself is the greatest evil in their lives and very hell itself when it comes to true holy of hollies: The Will of the People. Remember that one? Most of us were taught when we were kids that America was the land of the free and the home of the brave. Remember all that idealism? Remember, God Bless America?
But that was all before the carnivorous filth of Bill Clinton and the Bush Royal Family and a collection of similar types who are either the relative handful of Gods and Goddesses who absolutely rule the Earth, or that Washington army of suck up traitors whose tongues never stray very far from the boots of the elites.
