Winning for the Wrong Reasons, as the Country Heads to a Depression
The best candidate won if cheating doesn’t derail his victory.
The blame game is soon to begin. Let’s get a head start on tying to present reality. The sooner we can put reality on the table by spreading around essays like this one, the easier it will be for Obama to do an adequate job.
The voters thought domestic policy was more important than foreign policy. Neither candidate (nor the more well known of the third parties want to be’s) bothered to try to correct this. The polls showed many thought McCain better on foreign policy. So Obama instead of mentioning hatred toward US imperialism as a permanent world-view, in the long run, is extremely hazardous to the average American’s future, he instead picked Biden for vice president. Obama did firmly stand up against the death-squad government of Columbia and minimum safety and worker rights provisions in future NAFTA type treaties. But the commentators, Obama supporters, and even small revolutionary newspapers acted like he never opened his mouth. Googleing, finds he lashed out against the death squads frequently in the past as well.
What is going on?
Is the entire country, and anyone who stops reading this essay before coming to this point, in a giant conspiracy to hide from reality? I will point out how huge this conspiracy to avoid reality is on the part of all before I finish this essay.
As far as domestic policy goes, McCain if he only half wanted to, would be far better (and both candidates are really winging domestic issues) in standing up to big business the way no Democrat could.
Nixon went to China, no Democrat could have done it. Under Eisenhower the US sided with the Third World, both supporting Nasser during the Suez crisis, and Ho Chi Min against the French. A Democrat would have been Impeached for treason. Obama may not like guns but history tells us that only Republican can take them away. Sarah Palin may believe in a citizen’s militia but pledging loyalty to God and Country will be part of the criteria to joining the militia as well as having not criticized President Bush too much. And as with airport security what will happens when two people who have the same name, and one tries to renew their annual, or 10 yearly, gun license? By all logic (expect all our personal ideologies), Bush’s worst blunder was telling Saddam "no" when asked if he could leave and take the Iraqi treasury with him and not worry about war crimes. Only when discussing the possibility of a Sarah Pane presidency is the blunder of Bush and Saddam even discussed.
Clearly Carter was our most moral president who always wanted to do best, if any of that matters, if not, Johnson shoots far up in being a good president.
This election was the opposite of what it seems to be. McCain is supposedly strong when it comes to standing up to terror, so much so that Obama had to nominate Biden. However, over and over again we get information that bin Laden’s goal is to unite the Muslim world. He believes in him mind if he can accomplish this, the future would take care of itself. Plus, endless documentation that the war against terror is counter productive,

But none of the above seems to matters only what feels true not what is true.
Off the subject maybe, Charles Manson wasn’t executed, therefore there were no copycat Manson-like terror incidents but when suicidal maniacs get their wish and die with or without US government help and inspire other suicidal maniacs to copy them, their death supposedly has something to do with justice. The Columbine massacre inspiring a suicidal kid in far away Denmark.
Before 9/11 an Al Qaeda operative was expressing disappointment that the US reaction to the bombing of the Cole was so limited. Another operative answered we have something planned that is so big the US won’t be able to ignore it. The Taliban was getting very unpopular in Afghanistan right before 9/11, and the more Afghans dared to whisper their disgust and anger the worse the state of Muslim militancy was in the world. The reactions to 9/11 inverted this tendency. Not all the reactions helped al Qaeda’s dreams of total war, such as Bush urging people not the deface Muslim businesses, and him humbly apologizing to the King of Jordan for Abu Ghraib abuse. Most everyone said wrong gesture, or wrong person to apologize to. But this led to Queen Noor challenging al Qaeda until al Qaeda agreed to leave Jordan alone the first clear set back for al Qaeda so far.
I and a friend were watching in awe before the start of the Iraq War on TV the biggest peace protest ever in England. A news bulletin of a terror attack in Turkey at the British consulate and two synagogues took over the screen. When the protest returned to the TV screen, my friend’s gut reaction was "Why don’t they protest that" meaning the terror attack. Majority leader Bill Frist was in charge of reviewing the additional Abu Ghraib photos Congress privately viewed. Just as he was on the air calling concerning the pictures and was to call for bipartisan prison reform a news bulletin about Nick Berg’s beheading took over the screen. Bin Laden demanded on the Internet that Iraqis not vote, unlike in Afghanistan where election workers disappeared in the night and later McCain quotes al Qaeda public statement claiming that Iraq is the most central part of the war with the US. Tom Fox a Quaker activist went to Iraq to declare peace, and was beheaded like Doctor’s Without Border’s physicians in Afghanistan. Over and over again the bin Laden wing of the al Qaeda network, by its actions, makes it clear that the western peace movement is it’s enemy, except when the peace movement blames everything on Israel, not anyone who helps them go to heaven in a way that might inspire other Muslims to join the cause.
Our beliefs that reality is a myth and mythology is reality is a dire danger for the future. The belief that Obama is the prophet of hope fits into this equation somewhere but I for one have no idea where.
Some may say I left out most of the facts such as what really happened on 9/11. However I know that the government used to confiscate any cameras even in the Pentagon shopping mall next to the Pentagon and that very few died on the ground because supposedly most of that section was empty for reconstruction purposes. Though for some reason that bit of good news wasn’t celebrated. So I keep posting my theory that the government seized pictures showing construction secrets, but never did anyone respond to my suggestion or post a discussion elsewhere on the Internet. I don’t know a thing about the properties of melting steel but I would trust 9/11 Truth more if they posted corrections to the missile striking the Pentagon theory.
What can make us American people wake up to the real world. Piling on a few more facts won’t do it. The belief that we are the smartest, bravest and most Democratic people on earth threatens our survival.
Now I’ll risk getting down to business, even though there is some chance that election fraud may change the final result. Perhaps the reason there has been no terror attack in the US is because al Qaeda sleeper-cells are hair-triggered only to attack only when the US tries to seize Pakistan nukes. Even if Bush in the last days attacks Iran and some low grade domestic terror attacks occur the highly professional Qaeda sleeper-cells will remain dormant.
Anyone in their right mind will know that we can’t have a world with al Qaeda owning Pakistani nukes but the US will pay a big price to stop that from happening, with the American people rebellious from constant cries of wolf. Maybe Al Qaeda would agree to keep Pakistani Nukes in their bunkers, not if woman wear burkas, but only require Amish head scarfs, and not insist of praying five times to bin Laden’s brutal interpretation of God if instead they would five times a day to Jesus. Bin Laden has been getting what he wanted ever since 9/11 except Bush did such things as urge people not to deface Muslim property and a Muslim cleric in Spain on an anniversary of the Madrid bombing called bin Laden a traitor it Islam and our stupid government, and so-called experts on fighting terror, didn’t even bother to translate it from Spanish to English. [Sort of off the subject, every time anyone else talks like I do they seem to want to unfairly blame Hamas or Iran, or even Muslims in general for the mess instead of just sticking to condemning the bin Laden faction of the al Qaeda network, which encourages people to claim they are only crying wolf.
Bush has prevented another terror attack domestically by agreeing with bin Laden that the main theater of the war should be Iraq not the US and Pakistan. – So what; that doesn’t mean Bush stopped it, it means Bush put off a second terror attack on the US until, a new person was elected president. Meaning that both Obama and McCain have to be war presidents. If McCain got into a war with Iran and there were amateur terror attacks on the US while al Qaeda professional sleeper cells remained dormant until the US seized Pakistani nukes, than the US people would have said enough of the US government lies at just the wrong moment.
So we are going to have a war President and a depression from a President who promises hope because other than every women around the world wearing a burka and everyone worshiping bin Laden’s most nasty possible interpretation of Allah, peace with al Qaeda is impossible, as they hold off a massive terror attack on the US for just the right moment.
I wanted to wait to it was clear that McCain didn’t steal the election before posting this. But this way others can have it ready to send everywhere just as soon as it’s clear McCain didn’t steal the election. More details,
