Right or Left? It's All a Huge Game to Keep Us Occupied

If you ever wonder how this administration gets around the contempt of the American people, or why they haven’t been impeached by now, or why we always end up with a President supported by the Military Industrial Complex, all one has to do is watch how we are manipulated between “Right” and “Left”. Let me tell you something that very few people understand, there is no right or left in this country. This is a diversion to make you believe that you somehow “belong” to an influential group of people, and by the way, you don’t.

 

I have been telling my listeners on my radio show for weeks now that the entire left/right dialogue is meaningless. We have a corporacracy that is basically headed by the large multi-national companies that make their killing off war and rumors of war. We have the defense industry; we have the banking industry, the pharmaceutical industry and a myriad of other corporations that sustain themselves by influencing our elected officials to do what they are told to do. The top 10% of the richest families in the US hold over 71% of its wealth. http://www.faculty.fairfield.edu/faculty/hodgson/Courses/so11/stratification/income&wealth.htm

Can anyone explain this? This means that the other 90% share 29% of this nations wealth. Are you as impressed as I am? How do you think this would play out on the MSM? It’s obvious that you will never see it on CBS or NBC or any other media outlet. Do you believe that the richest 10% of the wealthiest families pay 71% of our taxes? Are you kidding? So what can we do about this “class war” that most of us don’t even believe is happening? If you look at the graphs in the link I provided, the rich are getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer. This is the greatest disparity of wealth in the US ever. This should be an issue, shouldn’t it? Well it’s not, and it will never become an issue as long as the mainstream media is owned by the wealthiest families in America.

 

This brings us down to the right/left debate. This, my friends is the largest fraud ever perpetrated on the American public. When 61% of the people in America want us out of Iraq, isn’t it strange that we are still there? http://www.worldpublicopinion.org/pipa/articles/international_security_bt/394.php?lb=btis&pnt=394&nid=&id=&gclid=COnA_4LqvZECFSF4lgodcmfpCA How does the government manage to hold down public opinion? It’s fairly simple, pit the American people against each other. Get them to argue nonsensical talking points with each other so that they don’t see the big picture.  This is a perfect example of “Divide and Conquer”. If they can keep Americans busy with meaningless jargon, they are free to do what they will, which is to find ways for corporate gain at the expense of the American people.

So, what do we do about it? Stop talking left and right, conservative or liberal, it doesn’t make a dimes worth of difference. Every time you argue a political point with an acquaintance, you fall into their plans. Instead of talking about the differences, talk about your similar set of circumstances. Talk about how the middle class is being raped by those that control the wealth in this country. To my amazement, some of the people that listen to my show are far right conservatives. I don’t dwell on our political differences, I try to find issues that we can discuss; issues between right or wrong. You know something, it works. When you use facts in your arguments and illustrate how we are ALL being taken for a huge ride, you will find that we aren’t too much different in our views.

 

People in this country are not stupid. I hate the word sheeple, because they are not that. They are ignorant because they haven’t been told what the “real rules of this game are”. They are screwing the middle-class out of existence. One only has to look at the facts. This means turning off that propaganda machine that sits in your living room, or just watching movies. Watch the news and they will bring this right against left and vice versa constantly. Remember, it is not about that. The problem is the same people that control most of the media control the MIC. The game is all about money and how to get it. Keep playing by their rules and you’ll find your pocket picked in no time. The banks are after us, the credit card companies, the pharmaceutical companies, the oil companies and the defense lobby makes sure we are at war all of the time. AIPAC has every politician feeding out of their trough. We spend 30 Billion dollars to support Israel and it comes back to America to buy off the politicians. Ask Cynthia McKinney who it was that got her unseated in her Congressional District. http://www.dissidentvoice.org/2007/08/cynthia-mckinney-confronts-corporate-media-malice-in-court/

 

So the next time somebody wants to get you into a right/left argument, tell them you don’t have the time. Tell them you are smarter than to fall for that kind of thing. Maybe they’ll want to know the truth. You know it now, what are you going to do about it? How about not voting for either Hillary or Obama that are beholden to the richest of the rich? How about voting for someone that will represent the vanishing middle-class? I can only clue you in; I can’t do it for you. This is something that you will have to investigate by yourselves. Another thing, I don’t make this stuff up.

That’s the way I see it.
