When the angels of darkness gather together blotting out the bright nature of our future yet to come. What powers of the common citizen can then be deployed in returning sanity to the governing power to be? With every dollar borrowed on the citizens behalf by a corrupt politician, unopposed by that citizen, the citizenry excerpts the chains of debt that bind them to a life of slavery.
Freedom of speech allows us to make an attempt at wakening the sleeping giant of the American people. The question that remains, are we asleep, or have we been poisoned?
It wasn’t all that long ago that Rahm Emanuel said; You never want a serious crisis to go to waste: http://youtu.be/1yeA_kHHLow via @youtube. Governing by allowing the country to go from one crisis to another, allows the forces within government to manipulate power, and, the publics emotions, using emotional terror, in order to manage the crises. There never seem to be any governmental Politian with political back bone enough, to then choosing to use it, while presenting policies of some new bold ideas in avoiding future serious crises. Even the presentations of late of policies or legislation in solving one crisis only seems to lead to a renewed crisis’s of the future. The follies of such policies are never fully recognized, or are they, they are never argued persuasively as why they are follies? If this is the case, shouldn’t we then collectively be questioning our politician’s motives?
The fiscal cliff was one such crisis that was nothing more than one side saying that we need more revenues to help with our out of control budgets. The other side stated that we have a spending problem not a taxing one.
What was solved? We raised taxes on some rich guys which amounts to being able to run the government for some nine days worth in new in revenues. Wow Crisis averted! But what about the spending side of things? Nothing but empty promises for future cuts. The next crisis is already put on the calendar. The government will run out of money in two or three months if we don’t raise the debt limit. Allowing government to barrow even more money. Wasn’t that what the cliff was about in short….. allowing ourselves to borrowing and spending more than we were going to tax people in the first place?
A simple analogy on the governments way to solving problems is….. You have just come home from vacation and discovered a sewage pipe burst and filled your home to the roof with sewage. Solution…. Raise the roof!
Hitting the debt ceiling time and time again. Only demonstrates there is a spending problem. Using the manufactured crisis of a potential debt down grade, we shouldn’t have the attitude, that if we don’t barrow more money and fast the crisis will get bigger. This only magnifies the future uncomfortable condition the nation will have to endure when no one is willing to lend and there is nothing left to tax in order to repay the debt.
Moving from one crisis to another, a self-imposed crisis created wholly by government actions or inaction, is a form of mental and emotional terror of the public. An abusive manipulation of the public’s trust. An incompetent form of leadership whose definitions of success would only lead to rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Titanic. Over that of making an attempt at avoiding sure disaster….. Or the next crisis.
If our Politian’s of today are only seeking to manage the decay with their political actions? Then they are also admitting by their actions along with a lack of intestinal fortitude, that there is nothing to gain by doing something positive. Only admitting through their actions to everyone, the rot cannot be stopped! A defeatist attitude at best, an attitude of applying a mismanagement within a managed decay, then presenting it to society as a job well done, rather than actively searching to stopping the decay. These modern Politian’s are only offering a slowing of the impending rot to the core doom of our society, while presenting distortions of it as a brighter future yet to be realized.
If these modern politicians, visionaries of doom, disciples of destruction, had to be measured by their worth to society as a governmental official in the same way as they would have to measure themselves in the privet sector, working in a for profit business. The public would see real fast that the government and the career politician, are promoters of failure, instead of being the protectors of innovation and success.
What ever happened to that bright shiny city on the hill kind of presentations by any Politian’s? Truly positive presentations given to all of us as a future to look towards to, is what seem to be missing? Or have we accepted those pale pastel colors of failed ideas as being more comfortable than accepting those vividly bolder colors of new ideas, as well as the efforts needed to realize them?
The problem isn’t within our Politian’s presentations of a brighter future. It is in the understanding of it. For they all a spouse to a futuristic dream of better times, while pointing towards the boogie-man of any present crises, as to what is keeping us from getting there. But then our Politian’s are working only in attaining, and maintaining, their positions of power. A politicians life is a more comfortable life, a life of ease different from that of the average citizen. It is this kind of bright future they have sold themselves to. Having to resort to the use of manipulation through crisis’s to insure their futures will be filled with a brighter shining light on that hilltop were they live. While manipulating the general masses in sell their human potential, and their God-given bright futures, along with their, freedoms, and rights, for some mythical dirty pieces of silver.
If our Politian’s were to make an honest attempt at cleaning house, and providing some bold new ideas for a collective brighter future. They may be in favor of term limits, a balanced budget, paying down the debt, simplifying the tax code, and returning some of the governing powers back to individual states to manage for themselves. (Example; the department of education just to name one). All the while recognizing these types of changes also would have the federal government excepting some short-term pain, as well some diminished powers over the people. But then isn’t this why a crisis is never a good thing to waste? Government is always at war with the people in expanding its powers over the people. Who are the people to trust if their politicians are misrepresenting themselves as being something other than, evilly corrupt, manipulative. Left to their own devices with no term limits they distort government’s job through mental gymnastics of sorts and a clever creation of crisis after crisis and solutions that amount to nothing more than buying some voter blocks, and their votes.
A government that creates a solution to any present crisis, refusing to use critical thinking in finding that more perfect solution, so as not to add to any future crises. Has adopted the policies of crisis as the acid to eroding our constitutional freedoms and rights, in favor of a more perfect manipulative power of tyranny.
The only crisis that deserves swift response is the one of this nation being under attack by outside forces.
Perpetual crisis of necessity is the mother’s milk of maintaining power of corruption through greedy intent delivered by the politician like a venomous snake. Through its bite it applies the policies of “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste” Yet setting the stage for the next. Applying this kind of political solution, the venomous intoxicants only contributes to more of the same in the future while patronizing society from turning away from it. It is the angles of hell that applies the secret temptations of greed all the same to politician, and citizen alike. The politician uses these intoxicants to hide their irresponsible actions, or greedy intent. A crisis only seems to give an unforgivable insult to the oath of office; for it is the love of the crisis that applies this kind of action within the individual’s inspiration to works harder, in allowing tyranny to creep into their seat of political power, for the porpoises of maintaining that power. Affecting their thoughts secretly at first, then convincing them to action, because they believe these political policies will never affect their lives in the same way. At the same time, they are knowingly selling their country men’s freedoms to the lowest bidder. Favoring corrupt power over preserving the ideas for all to have the same equal pursuit of happiness.
The greedy politician is more vicious, and more corrupt than that of any rich man hiding behind his money. For a rich man knows he cannot take his money with him in the end. So may then turn to use his wealth in helping others. But the politician understands the power of the office is the simplest form of immortality, never having to give back any newly acquired powers of the government represented by the laws passed, that will affect generations.
