I can talk to Obama supporters, those who---rightly---frothed at the mouth against the policies of G. W. Bush, but somehow when "their man" is in the White House they turn stupid and support those very policies that they only 4 years ago rabidly opposed. Truly, most people are dead asleep. The public school system is roundly successful at producing intellectually incoherent adults incapacitated for intelligent comprehension of current events and the machinations of the "shadow government" as some would refer to the Elite power structure behind the scenes choosing CFR Team A vs CFR Team B in a false contest every 4 years.
Yes, so much we could discuss. I would imagine hours of great conversation.
Yes, I'm familiar with Ron Paul, the Federal Reserve, CFR, the Red Shield and much more. Like I say, I've been down the rabbit hole most of my life.
Your observation that "most people are dead asleep" is what I find most disturbing. I would put it more precisely: Most people are in a perpetual hypnotic trance
. This cuts across every demographic one can think of and it includes far more than political awareness.
One of my mottos: "Who ever controls your perception of reality controls you. Whatever you believe to be true will be the basis upon which you make your life choices and decisions, whether it is true or not." The totality of domestic population control -- full spectrum dominance
-- lies in the arena of perception control
This became very clear to me as I began educating people around me about 9/11. One of the more common responses was that what I was saying couldn't possibly be true because people couldn't keep a lie of that magnitude hidden. Never mind Joseph Goebbels, “The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it.”
I came to understand that deception is the rule; it is how we are ruled
, and this awareness has now soured me on just about everything regarding so-called "civilization."
For me the tipping point was 9/11. I already knew that social reality was a construct and could be shaped and molded, however not always gracefully.
From a historical POV, what happened on 9/11, compared to all the other blood letting by our masters over the centuries, was but a drop in the proverbial bucket. But what struck me was how OBVIOUS it was. Although they did a lot of attention re-direction and dissembling for their global audience, the obvious absurdity of the events themselves should have
immediately alerted many to the fraud.
That it did not (not ONE pre-existing institution be it academic, scientific, technological, media, military, religious -- you name it -- has stood up against this travesty) underscores the somnambulation of our species.
I have now come to the uncomfortable realization that my fellow human beings PREFER lies to truth.
The significance of this fact is most unsettling. For one thing, it has made it impossible for me to take seriously so many of the concerns of the people around me.
For example: Who will win the next election? TBH I've barely followed it at all. My prediction is they'll reinstall Obama. He's done a bang-up job for his white CFR masters so far, why would they change horses in midstream?
This prediction is in part based on my small awareness of the Republican Clown Car pre-Romney nomination. Our overlords have become masters at population and perception control. You want to pit 'right' against 'left' and get both of them to fear the consequences should 'the other' win. This keeps the money pouring into the coffers and keeps people feeling there is something of value actually at stake.
My prediction is as stated, Obama in 2012. 2016, however, will probably see a Republican win. Most likely Paul Ryan (assuming his character isn't assassinated in the next four years).
There is the off-chance, however, that there are other, unknown (to us), reasons why our overlords (not a monolithic group but consist of competing factions) would wrangle a Republican win this election. However, what ever these unknown reasons may be, I'd be very surprised if they have anything to do with the deliberately contentious social issues put forward to keep the sheep at each others throats.
My overall perception is they are not interested in giving the population any reason for insurrection. A frontal attack on social rights could do just that and they know it. No, their intention is to keep the 'pot' on a constant, slow boil. The average citizen should never be either too comfortable nor too uncomfortable. The middle ground is excruciating enough but they think its their fault or 'just the way things are' so that's alright.
That said, however, IF they know major economic/environmental/social dislocations are on the immediate
historical horizon (and that is a real possibility), they may feel that having an overt fascist in the White House would be their best bet.
That said, there is always good reason to keep a smiley happy liberal face on any repressive regime.
We shall see.
