As everyone either celebrates or mourns the winners and losers from Tuesday's General Election, it's important to understand what really happened.
More undeclared wars won. More wireless wiretapping won. More ignorance of the end to due process won. Bigger government won. Interventionist foreign policy won. Federal intervention on states rights won. Bailouts won. Quantitative Easing won. The establishment won.
This is reality. This is not a joke.
All morning Wednesday the airwaves have been full of "I'm so happy 'so and so' won," or "now we can really get some stuff done," or "those [enter name of establishment party you are opposed to] got what they deserved."
No one wants to talk about how corrupt the electoral process is. No one wants to discuss how both the major party candidates (Obama and Romney) skipped over discussions of NDAA or Bradley Manning or FISA or how it is now a felony to protest outside an event where someone is under secret service protection.
The mainstream media let the establishment candidates get away with it! They used certain salacious issues to distract the populace while taking in millions upon millions of dollars in campaign ad money. They put up a fraud that was the three Presidential and one vice-presidential debates involving only the republicans and democrats and said "that's all the choice you have." How many names did you see under the choice for President in Illinois? I saw more than just two choices.
Let's not even talk about the GOP blackballing Ron Paul during the primary and convention process.
Things will continue to spiral out of control as long as we continue to elect the establishment. The next four years we'll see more undeclared wars, inflation will go out of control as the Fed prints more money, individual liberties will be lost in a sea of "fear-of-terrorism" tyranny, and the Mainstream Media will continue to divide this country with deceit and manipulation.
Sadly, after today, too many of us will simply fall back asleep and let the corruption run rampant without keeping it in check.
