The most disturbing sentence uttered during the debt ceiling debate/government shut down, that should raise some concerns by both political parties, is:
“We must increase our debt limit so that we can pay our bills.”
I don’t believe this “new center” crap. I don’t believe that people support Democrats because they believe in the socialism they represent. I believe Americans are genuinely afraid of leadership and change. They are afraid to be a superpower because being on top means that you occasionally need to go to war. They are afraid of Republicans who advocate individual liberty and freedom because that means that they have to take responsibility for themselves. That is why the seem to favor Democrats – it isn’t socialism they like, it is the anonymity of being part of a group – because then, they can externalize blame for bad events to the group without ever having to feel responsible for their own vote.
The majority of America has become comfortable with maxing the credit card out and spending every dime of their paycheck just make the minimum payments each month. They don’t want any changes that might upset that delicate balance and will continue that way because they want to keep their boat, their new car and their house even though they know that they really don’t “own” those things and if lose their job, the repo man is coming.
Remember Comrades – there is no truth but the revolutionary truth. There is only that which advances the revolution. All else is the lie of the bourgeoisie designed only to confuse you and remove you from the path of a border free global democracy – the glorious dictatorship of the proletariat! Workers of the world, unite (with me in charge, of course – because if you are stupid enough to believe that crap, then you deserve to be subjugated)!
