I just saw a headline stating that Bernie Sanders’ real obstacle is not Trump, but the Democratic establishment. Indeed, but I would say that this whole country’s problem is not Trump, but the larger Establishment (the Dark Lords, the Puppet-Masters, the Man (or Men) behind the Curtain).
Trump is just a symptom of an Oligarchy that manifests itself in a two-party delusion. The two parties alternate being the magician’s assistant, getting you to look to the right while they systematically deprive you of your wealth and your liberties on the left. Government gives you NOTHING that it has not taken from someone else (most likely including you), and it is the most corrupt middleman the world has ever known, taking the largest cut for itself. It is a Leviathan.
“Oh look, I got a tax refund!” — Yet how can you get refunded on money that was already yours to begin with?
Let us not even get started today on the $21 TRILLION that is ‘MISSING’ from Government coffers. Where did that money go? They changed the laws – literally with the stroke of President Trump’s pen – to “We don’t have to tell you anymore.” This, my friends, is the very definition of an Oligarchy. In your face… but it started long ago.
As a footnote, keep in mind that you can argue which party is presently more corrupt, and perhaps even make a good case. But it is kind of like arguing whether it is better to have lung or colon cancer. The end result is still the same. How about no cancer? They cleverly never present this as an option.
The only way to beat these people is to refuse to participate in their carnival sideshow, their ‘reality’ TV, their fictional soap opera. Take your power back and return to things that are real. Food, family, trees, people. True change can only begin in our local communities. To hell with these people in the District of Columbia who believe themselves ordained to rule our lives. They are NOT.
