Throwing the scoundrels out will not work.

The undated Charlie Reese article has been making its' way around the Internet lately. It got me to thinking about the American public and the two party system we currently enjoy. I think we, the American public, are being played the fool by two parties who really are two sides of the same coin.

The politics of division is the ole' divide and conquer strategy played to perfection. Apparently we enjoy being duped.

The Japanese just voted out the party that has been in control 62 of the last 63 years because following the same strategy our Fed is using now, they have had deflation and a contracting economy for 20 years. Is it going to take 19 years more for Americans to wake up?

I hope not, but, hey, get ready for a long-haul. We had a choice in the last election to pick someone who understands economics, but, our country is not ready for a Ron Paul. He is not slick enough, is too honest, and does not beat a war drum or terrorist drum, or health-care drum or whatever beat a bunch of people want to hear. No, instead he says we need some simple fixes like 1) follow the constitution and issue our own currency and get rid of the Fed and back our currency with gold/silver 2) get out of foreign conflicts and mind our own business and take care of our own borders 3) cut gov't back to the bare essentials of providing defense, courts, law and order, a sound currency, some infrastructure, etc and get the heck out of peoples lives.

But, NNOOOO, we want someone to tell us who to fear and hate. We want someone who will tells us they will invoke God on our behalf. We want someone who is going to give us what we think we need for nothing. We want someone to give us a job. We want someone who is going to give us money.

We want to be lied to. Sure gov't deficits are good. Sure, we can fight every terrorist everywhere in the world. Sure, we can provide free education through college and health care to everyone for every disease. Sure, we can make you healthy. Sure, we can be the moral majority who will make the country and world right for everyone. If you believe this crap, then you are being duped and will reelect the crooks because you believe gov't will make you feel better. You take care of you, but, that is not what we want to hear.

Keep believing the Pub and Dem rhetoric and be happy you have someone to blame - it is much easier on your brain. Ok, go back to sleep now.
