If you are trying to win an argument over politics in the United States, there are some advanced cheats you can easily use to discredit your opponent, such as calling him a fascist, a racist, a nationalist… or a pro-corporation. These cheats are so powerful that you can win any argument simply by using them, even against someone much more competent than you on political or economical subjects.
You see, in the middle of an unprecedented economic crisis, the massive trade deficit and public debt we face, and the continuously growing influence of the foreign and foreign interests in our own country, Americans are worried about corporations.
And by corporations, Americans don’t mean corporate lobbies, they just mean American corporations. Once again, demagogy became a convenient excuse for anti-Americanism.
That just proves to show that once more Americans are blaming scapegoats, and not any scapegoat because they are actually blaming the wealth creators and the only ones that draw money into the United States, as opposed to the very common American Business Model.
Many “Americans”, loyal adepts following the sheep mentality, have expressed their desire for corporations to have less voice in the White House. They even came up with a slogan, “Corporations are not people”. Some would argue that by doing that they are shooting themselves in the foot, since most of them are also supporters of famous anti-American lobbies, such as ecology, anti-racism or even globalism. Others would also argue that the priority would be to lessen the voice of the foreign out of our politics.
Some real questions arise from these clear demonstrations of demagogy and sheep mentality, including the following, should the corporations have a bigger or small voice inside the White House ?
First of all, supposing that we should lessen the voice of corporations/companies means that they already have some, which is clearly not the case. Have you ever heard of an act favoring American companies ? Sure the international socialist media might talk to you about SOPA/PIPA, but was it really a corporate issue ? Similar laws are effective in many other countries in the world (only more nationalist version), and have proven that such laws are more of a political issue.
Furthermore SOPA/PIPA don’t really favor American corporations since most musical labels and films distributors are foreign, and these laws don’t make distinction between the origin of any intellectual propriety (unlike their European equivalents for example).
Secondly, when is the last time Obama’s administration addressed an issue that American companies/entrepreneurs have to face ? Like social dumping, foreign protectionism, foreign nationalism, foreign economical imperialism, American ethnomasochism ? Even more consternating, when was the last time any president or political candidate had an open discussion with entrepreneurs, companies or any other wealth creator ? Despite them being very good at showing appalling doses of demagogy on public media, those facts alone exhibit their clear aversion for those that are actually bringing money in the USA.
Lastly, the anti-American media is very good at pointing out the supposed size of the corporations in our politics, but they forget that the entire American system is based on feeding off of these big corporations. The middle-class doesn’t export, neither do they bring money in the USA. The companies are the most taxed entities in this country, depriving them from political power would be not only stupid but also very hypocritical. The recent American government decisions were never pro-business, and much less pro-American business.
I honestly believe that more corporation voicing their views in the political debate can only be more beneficial.
Not only is it only fare that the biggest contributors to our economy have a bigger voice, but especially since they are close to being the only ones that actually know shit about the business world and political economy.
If I wanted to see unbiased global political economics brought to the political table and had a choice between :
- Delusional politicians living in their fantasies incapable of seeing the facts of the market.
- Unemployed hippies calling themselves the 99% and whining about the economic crisis.
- Foreign news reporters writing about how globalism is good and how nationalism is bad, yet promoting the opposite in their respective countries.
…and actual companies that actually have real experience of how global economics work, I’d much rather have them inside a political debate.
In their political decisions American have for too long relied on principles, dreams, opinions, morals, ideas rather than on facts and on what actually works.
Ultimately, this is why the politicians that make the least amount of promises are always sanctioned. That tells you a lot about the voters, who at each election, will look for the person that says the most… without realizing that if he says so much, it’s because he doesn’t know shit.
Opinions and principles of our politicians are worthless, it’s time American stop the demagogy perpetuated by the media about what’s right to do, what’s ethical, what’s tolerant… and start looking at what works.
American multinational corporations, unlike most Americans, actually know what works and they also know what’s going on outside our borders. They actually know what discriminative laws they have to face when trying to implant themselves in this or that country, and also know that their foreign competitors don’t have to face these laws when implanting themselves in the USA.
I’d rather have them bring that to the political table then hear Santorum whining about Jesus or Ron Paul about torture.
The only way of seeing what works is to have actual global business experience. And actual global business experience comes from… reality, once again.
Not from Joe K. plumber since 1978 who thinks nationalism is bad because it’s “racist” and “intolerant”, not from Frank B. unemployed since always who thinks welfare is good because Obama said so, and certainly not from Jennifer A. writer for the Huffington Post who shares her political analysis every week yet learned about economy reading fucking cosmo.
It’s a notorious fact that Ron Paul, along with all the other pro-peace supporters, live in their fantasy.
Not only is “pro-peace” a totally irresponsible and globalist view, I could only imagine the reactions the Europeans would have if one of their candidates labelled themselves “pro-peace”, but it’s also very stupid.
And once again… these statements are backed by no data, or any real proof whatsoever excluding the so-called blowback.
First off, if his ideas were true, than military intervention would have preceded terrorist attacks. That not being the case, this alone should infirm his statements.
Secondly, military skids are more common in the Russian army, in the French army, and in most of NATO’s forces than in the US Army. As a matter of fact, the US Army is the most and only military force to be a minimum transparent. Why isn’t there any blowback against these forces ?
Thirdly, the Muslim terrorists claim than above being anti-American, they are “Muslim extremists”. But if that was really the case, shouldn’t they be pro-American rather than anti-American knowing that the USA is the most open country to Islam of all non-Muslim States ? We allow full veil (burqa), religious signs, the construction of minarets and we actually condemn religious offense, which is not the case in most European countries for example. Moreover, and still unlike most European countries, we don’t have any nationalist or anti-Islam political party. We don’t have any congress or white house representatives that pride themselves in Muslim and Arab torture during the wars either, unlike the European Union.
Point four, where is the blowback against Germany for the Wehrmacht war crimes ? Where is the blowback against the Red Army ? Against the Chinese Army ? Surely, they have more war crimes to their actives than the US Army.
Lastly, saying that military intervention causes blowback is a massive oversimplification at best, and a blatant attempt at obscurantism at worst.
It’s like saying that all delinquents were previously victims of delinquency, all rapists were previously rape victims, all criminals were previously crime victims (all killers victims of kill ?).
Ron Paul is denying the whole predator/prey concept, as a matter of fact he is even denying the food chain. He is saying that if a chicken never eats foxes, when he crosses the road of a fox he will go unharmed.
Think of it this way, was there more disobedience in a concentration camp in 44 or in a rehab clinic nowadays ? If you can answer this question correctly, you are probably smarter than Ron Paul. Or less delusional.
War is not a catalyst for anti-Americanism, anti-Americanism (and especially ethnomasochism from our leaders) is a catalyst for anti-Americanism.
Ron Paul, may be the best “pro-peace”, “anti-government”, “anti-war” candidate. But for sure he is far from being a “pro-reality” candidate.
Earlier this week I was seriously considering voting Ron Paul for the next presidential elections, as I stated in my last post The 2012 Demagogic Elections.
It made sense to me to vote for him because since every candidate had the same political and economical views, I might as well vote for the one that was least likely to break my balls with government intervention.
Yet after thoughtful consideration, I won’t vote for him or any other candidate this year.
Even to prevent Obama from gaining a second term mandate, I really don’t see myself signing an adhesion charter to his values.
Maybe if there was another Tea Party candidate presenting himself could I, at a pinch, hold out my ballot, but for me Ron Paul is one of the most despicable politicians.
As much as I hate Santorum and Obama for their efforts to destroy what is left of American culture, at least they have a bit of integrity and at least will they go against the public opinion once in a while.
But Ron Paul no, never will he challenge the global opinion, nether will he risk his popularity, acquired less by his political skills than his inherent tendency to voice political correctness.
How can a candidate call for change when he refuses to see the real problems ? Worse than the blind are those who refuse to see, remember.
How can he challenge the system when he is always looking for scapegoats for every American issue ? Note that he will always attack very little consortia, to be sure that they won’t defend themselves.
Example : the banksters (who do you know that’s a “bankster” ?), the corporations, Wall Street (when was the last time you saw a Wall Street representative on the media ?).
But he would never, for example, assault the ecological lobby which is clearly anti-American, yet receives wide support in our own nation.
Some would argue that a flu is far less inconvenient than plague or cholera, but don’t forget that in modern days a flu kills more than plague or cholera combined.
And honestly, I couldn’t vote for a candidate that :
- Voiced his support to anti-American lobbies and political organizations in 2008 (Green Party)
- Defends the foreign on half of his publicity spots
- Sides with the 99% and Occupy Wall Street movements
- Refuses to see the reality of globalism and America
- Bases his economical program on his ideals and opinions, rather than on factual evidence and reality
- Denied that Iraq’s regime was similar to the third Reich on his debate against McCain. He clearly never read the Iraqi Civil and Criminal codes, which share many similarities with the ones under the Hitler’s regime. But does he only read Arabic ? Or German ?
- Uses obscurantism and massive oversimplifications when talking about the Fed, and economics in general.
- Never backs up his propositions with data, and trait he shares with the liberals.
Ron Paul is either hypocritical or ignorant, and in both cases those are not qualities I would like to see in a president of the United States.
About every four years a very particular and intriguing event is held somewhere in the United States of
America Demagogy, and many signs show that this year’s event will be at least as lame as every other year.
Similarly to how other countries elect representatives to govern them and act in their best interest, we in the United States of
America Demagogy elect notorious globalists and demagogues to govern us, and act against our national interest.
You would be thinking that with the economic crisis that touches our country more then any other, with nationalist movements rising more than ever in Europe and every other country, with the disastrous results of half a decade of ethnomasochism and globalism, Americans would start to wake up and demand that their government start working in the national interest.
But apparently Americans are more concerned with gay rights, birth control pills and the legalization of marijuana.
These same Americans don’t seem to notice that they will soon experience a very painful blowback to use Ron Paul’s favorite term, once the Fed stops printing money. The errors of half a decade of ethnomasochistic governing and foreignism won’t be repaired with yet another bailout, and the consequences that Americans are starting to see are only the tip of the iceberg.
It was pretty funny last year to watch the Occupy Wall Street movement, yet another blatant excuse for anti-Americanism promoted by our ethnomasochistic media, because of the wide ignorance of the protesters.
Not only were they proposing even more international socialism to resolve problems created by international socialism, but really if they think our economic situation now is difficult, wait and see how it will be when the Europeans or the Russian take us over.
And no, there won’t be a massive bailout to magically solve our decades of trade-deficit, debt accumulation and other consequences to our anti-American globalist actions.
Even Ron Paul’s policies to cut government spending are widely insufficient at best, on the wrong track at worst.
As much as we need government spending’s limited, that alone won’t solve most of our problems. Germany, China, India, Denmark, France, Sweden Russia and most of the globe all have economies that are a lot more government depended than us (59% of GDP for Denmark, 56% for France) and their economy is in better shape than ours.
In 2008, we had to choose between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, but trust me in 2012 we will have both.
As long as American interests aren’t the top and only priority of the voters, you might as well keep Obama and his current administration because no candidate is projecting much change in our ideology.
And apparently, seeing the possible candidates for the 2012 elections, the public opinion hasn’t evolved one bit despite the economic crisis of 2012.
As for me, once again I will not vote for anyone.
I was considered voting Ron Paul earlier this year but seriously it’s not even worth the effort, and I wouldn’t want to encourage the globalist system with my vote.
As long as we won’t have American elections, based on American interests and not demagogy, voting will be as useless here as in central Africa.
Following the perpetual ethnomasochism in our media, we now have instituted a new doctrine pairing with that : the cult of mediocrity.
It’s clear now, for those who still had any doubts, that the anti-American media’s only goal is to lead us straight to a soviet-like system, only very ethnomasochistic. In other words, they want Nationalsozialismus… without the National of course.
I don’t personally like Mitt Romney as a politician, and I certainly wouldn’t want him in the White House, but you have to respect what he has done for this country.
As CEO of Bain & Company he was credited for leading the firm out of crisis, and founded one of the biggest private equity investments companies in the world.
And not only did he enrich himself by bringing money into the United States, as opposed to the supporters of the American Business Model that do the exact opposite (Walmart anyone ?), he also chose to spend his money in a patriotic way, by buying not one but several American cars.
How dare he be rich ? That privilege should be reserved to the Foreign ! No American should be allowed to be wealthy, as that would mean less money for the Foreign invaders !
And not only did he acquire his wealth in a healthy way for our nation, as opposed to say public-spending profit-suckers, but now he also decides to spend it in a patriotic way ?
Such acts of blatant intolerance could only come from a nationalist, fascist, racist pornographer, intolerant child-rapist and maybe even a little antisemitic. Those acts go against everything propagandized by the media : worshiping the foreign.
That’s not demagogic / anti-American at all !
Buying American products ? What’s next, racial segregation ? Concentration camps ? He must be stopped at all costs !
He should of gave away all his money to the foreign the very second he earned it ! Or at least, he should of spent it promoting foreign films in our own nation !
How can a man aspire to be the next president of the United States, when he is not even capable of kneeling before the foreign colonization of our society !
He should of been proud to give his American money away to foreigners that despise Americans, and will probably never pay any taxes in this country.
He should of been proud to feed what’s left of American sovereignty to the European hegemony.
Did he even think of the consequences of his acts ? He could of helped an American company be more competitive and have more funds to spend on research, or even worse create more jobs in America !
No wonder the media is trying so hard to bring him down after that.
It’s stunning that the media would have more respect for a teacher (sucking public funds) that decides to buy Toyota or Volkswagen cars and then comes complaining about the “1%”, portraying him as the poor victim of modern society (bad banksters, bad government, bad America…), and exhibit successful and patriotic people such as Romney as the enemy.
Because in reality, we’d much rather send our precious and costly dollars to Martin in Germany or Carlos in France, which are very happy to receive them, rather than producing our own products and supporting our own economy, and maybe even sell our products to other countries that could give us their dollars for once.
What a pleasure it is for all Americans to participate in the wealth of countries that openly consider themselves our enemies, countries that apparently need our money more then we do despite the economical crisis we are floundering in.
What a pleasure it is for all Americans to enrich even more some already rich capitalists from all around the world that will never pay the slightest tax in America, and that probably vote for nationalist and anti-American political parties in their respective countries.
What a pleasure it is, finally, for all Americans to know that countries that openly promote anti-Americanism in all its forms will retrieve an increasing share of our wealth.
It’s so much better to “work” a 9-5 job sucking money out of the commonwealth, forcing our government to borrow or print our salaries directly from the Fed, then give it all away to our enemies while complaining that the government is screwing us up.
Americans already had a serious problem with ethnomasochism, but if we add to that the growing cult of mediocrity, I can clearly state it : we are fucked.
Despite the current economic recession in which we flounder cheerfully, most Americans are more concerned with seeing who will be next anti-American buffoon to “represent” them at the White House.
Despite the growing public debt, the massive trade deficit with every other country in the world, the ethnomasochism in our society and the idolatry of foreign cultures reaching never ending heights, the Americans really believe that a mere change in governance will solve their problems.
A bit more on the trade deficit. If you followed the news two weeks ago, you may have noticed that our trade deficit has nearly reached $600 billion with the world for 2011 alone, including a $300 billion trade deficit with China. An obvious result nevertheless.
Notice that in America we don’t even speak of “trade balance” anymore but simply “trade deficit”, unconsciously implying that our trade balance couldn’t be positive.
Now back to our politicians. Since Barack Obama’s 2008 election campaign, every since presidential candidate wants “change”. Granted that’s the basis of a candidacy, but this message has only been reinforced since Obama’s campaign.
Every single candidate from the Republicans to the Democrats have the same expectations : more jobs, more buying power, better lifestyles,etc…
But in reality, none is taking any action or even proposing any solution towards any “change”.
Basically, they are proposing the exact same politics as for the last forty years and expecting it to work out different for some random reason. What’s the old saying, “do what you as you always did and get what you always got” ?
What the politicians are actually meaning when are proposing the SAME INEFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS as for the last four decades, is that they don’t want real “change”, they just want the same consequences as for the last four decades.
And I quote : delocalizations, trade deficits, ethnomasochism, anti-Americanism, poor buying power.
I have a serious hard time believing how Ron Paul, or any other media-built “savior”, will change anything when he is proposing the same thing as for the last forty, or even fifty years.
As I said in my previous article, small government and debt reduction isn’t all. Fighting socialism isn’t everything there is.
Take countries like China, Japan, Germany, South Korea. They are a lot more government dependent than the USA, and have more jobs, more buying power (yes even China), less trade deficit, and obviously not the typical American (or anti-American ?) ethnomasochism.
They produce more, they export more (proportionally), live better, have a lot more buying power, and typically do the opposite of what Ron Paul advocates.
Even most European countries, which pay up to 300% more taxes than in America (multiple taxes on income, VAT…) and have the Euro burden produce more than us and bring in more income than us.
I’m not saying every proposition of Ron Paul or any other politician is bad, just that they are no solutions to the bigger problems, bigger problems that are intentionally evaded.
If Americans want real lasting “change” for the better, simply stop the idolatry of the Foreign : foreign cultures, foreign tourism and especially foreign products like foreign films.
No it’s not the name of a random porn movie, but simply the title I came up with when browsing through the questions Americans sent our president for the 2012 Ask Obama campaign on Youtube.
Similarly to last years program, users were to submit questions to the president and he would respond to the ones having the most upvotes.
Not only did 80% of the questions concern SOPA, and none concerned the economic aspect just the regular demagogy anti-American joke, a few questions stood out by the utterly stunning stupidity.
While our country is facing issues like growing ethnomasochism, massive public debt, huge trade deficit, and a dumb monetary policy that consists of printing tons of dollars daily to make up for the loses of our trade deficit, Americans are concerned about gay rights, the views god and the well being of the Iranian people.
Here are a few questions that are particularly brainless :
What legislation/actions do you intend to promote during your second term to either reduce or mitigate the impact of the contribution to global warming caused by the United States?
First question from an environmental hippie. If this guy had any scientific knowledge at all, he would know the United States aren’t causing any significant impact on global warming simply because global warming mostly isn’t caused by man activity. And even if it was, it’s absolutely not a priority when we are facing trade deficit and public debt.
Mr. President, For nearly 50 years we have had a stable financial economy under the Glass-Steagall Act. Will you make a goal to reinstate Glass-Steagall and protect working class Americans with adequate banking reform?
You heard the hippie, we need more regulations.
For how long you are gong to keep God out of your policies by promoting abortions, gay marriages etc? You will never be successful Mr. President. Without God you cannot achieve victory. Please remember this thoroughly.
When confronted with unemployment and debt, the American people are only concerned with… religion. Well good for them.
This dude is perfectly armed for facing the two decades of recession that lie ahead of us.
Unemployed, maybe, but all in the faith of God.
I am a US Marine stationed overseas. I wanted to know how you can justify to us the following. Members of the 3 government branches make 50 to 100 times what I make on a yearly basis. How can you justify this without insulting me or my fellow Marines
Maybe if you started using American weapons… I’m just saying.
der presiden what ar u gon to doe to stop the war on teror??
Maybe he should start the war on illiteracy.
I am 60. I have diabetes, ulcers, high blood pressure. I work full time for a small company and have no health insurance. I cannot get health insurance at a rate I can afford. Why have people like me been left out when it comes to health insurance?
Maybe we should print more money to weaken the dollar even more, so we can expend the already failing concept of collectivist health insurance.
When will we put an end to corporate personhood?
It seems like the socialists will try and blame everything and everyone in order to evade reality.
Bad economy ? Don’t want to accept the reality of economic war because it confronts your fictive hippie values of ethnomasochism ? Blame the corporations.
Blame the corporations. The new scapegoat for all your problems.
After the government, liberalism, the conservatives, the markets, Wall Street, Fox News, Michael Jackson, the 1%… we now offer you the corporations ! They are American, so you can go ahead and blame them nobody will label you as “racist”.
Notice : blaming any other cause than the ones pre-approved by Anti-American, Inc. will make you a “fascist”.
Please don’t pass SOPA and PIPA All “Americans” as well as “World” need an uncensored internet. That’s my request to you.
The “World” ? Why would Barack Obama, president of the United States of America (or what is left of them), even consider listening someone that advocates the interests of the “World” above the ones of this nation ?
Barack Obama is supposed to DEFEND the interests of our nation AGAINST the ones of the world. Like every other president in the “World”. I sincerely hope the person that wrote the question is not American.
Why aren’t the Banksters being prosecuted?
Hon’ble Prez, y r u still supporting Pakistan when u’re aware of their offscreen activity which is affecting India directly and other Asian countries indirectly?If this continues, in the nxt 50 yrs u’ll find only the Islamic flags across Americas.
Why don’t you ask the Indian government ? This is America.
Is it possible for the President of the U.S. to give a couple of green cards to European visitors who already tried to improve the mutual understanding between America and Europe?
Maybe stfu ?
The phrase “Too big to fail” has become synonymous with the 2007-08 financial crisis. If anything, banks and financial institutions have become even larger since then. When will the banking system actually be held accountable?
When it’s proven responsible of anything having to do with the 2007-08 financial crisis. For now, it’s not the case.
Exactly, Why can’t we close Guatanamo prison???
Anti-American propaganda once again. 20% of Americans unemployed, trillions in public debt, massive trade-deficit and the hippies still worrying about foreigners in Guantanamo.
When can we expect to begin seeing prosecution of Wall Street insiders responsible for the massive fraud that led to the collapse of our economy? There seems to be lots of evidence, but no charges or arrests.
“There seems to be lots of evidence”… on NBC.
Mr. President what do you think about Georgia and Russia conflict ?
I sincerely hope you are referring to the state of Georgia.
Mr. President, All your efforts to make America prosperous will be futile if your country for which the first foundation was laid by God fearing ancestors and then built on Biblical principles continue to dishonour and disregard God your Creator.
” All your efforts to make America prosperous”… that’s the point, there aren’t any.
Mr President: Will you support Gay marriages in the future? Gays and Lesbians should be able to receive the same status and benefits as other Americans.
Currently, the same status and benefits are unemployment and public debt. If you want them you can have as much as you want.
And a few good questions, buried under tons of crap as usual.
Are you prepared to cut spending in a meaningful way to ensure that the younger people of this country are not left paying for the mistakes of previous generations?
How would you create new jobs, if there is hardly no industry production, inside US borders. Today, around 90% of all products used by Americans, are made outside of the USA. Almost everything we buy and use today is not produced here.
The one good thing with the presidential candidate Ron Paul, because everything isn’t exclusively black or white, is his talk about ending the stimulus.
Unfortunately, he also wants to end the Fed, which proves he is at best an incompetent economically, or just an anti-American.
The stimulus, paired with both borrowing huge amounts of money from other nations and printing money, is the second greatest plague our country is facing, right behind ethnomasochism.
The principle of a stimulus is to inject money in the country, mostly to middle/lower classes (99%) in order to stimulate consumption. It can take many forms, but it mostly involves a governmental intervention, statism at its best, and consists of injecting money to the middle/lower classes.
The stimulus is what encourages ethnomasochism, or more precisely it hides the consequences of ethnomasochism, especially the economic ones. Needless to say that in our self-hating country, ethnomasochim and stimulus come hand in hand.
The stimulus paired with ethnomasochism is what causes foreign countries to occupy American territory, receive all the American dollars and destroy American culture, via foreign films notably.
Once again, it illustrates perfectly the tendency of our politicians and other governmental officials to break the thermometer thinking that it will make the heat go down. Disinformation at its best, classic.
Our politicians routinely confuse causes and consequences. Medically, they would fight the symptoms and not the disease as the medieval doctors who vigorously practiced bloodletting on any illness.
Without the stimulus, American people would have acknowledged a long time ago the dangers of ethnomasochism and economic unpatriotism. If the government wasn’t borrowing left and right in order to inject money in our crumbling economy, or relentlessly printing money to maintain standards of living for the American people.
As I said before, there are two kinds of consumption, earned and borrowed. Without the stimulus, American people would have to rely on earned consumption. That means produce more (A LOT MORE) and stop the import lunacy.
The good news is that no matter what, the stimulus is going to end.
The bad news is that the masses will once again blame the wrong causes.
To the 99% wussies that think life is hard NOW, just wait until the continual stimulus ends and the Chinese and Europeans take us over…
