Surely many Americans are the biggest sheep in the world, and even more surely these same Americans will pay the price for this naivety in a very near future. Unfortunately, many not-so-sheep Americans will also have to pay the same price. That’s the beauty of collective irresponsibility.
I don’t know if you watched Ron Paul’s speech to a Town Hall meeting in Maryland, but it’s very revealing concerning his ambitions as a president.
A very interesting segment was when he said that we should all unite under our love for liberty and forget communities and differences. Replace liberty with equality and you have the exact same speech as Lenin. Anationalism in other words.
It’s funny how the globalists are always demanding for sacrifices in the name of a “greater good”, such as globalism, freedom. But what they won’t tell you and Americans won’t seem to realize is that it’s always the same that are performing these sacrifices (Americans) and the same that are on the receiving end (the foreign).
You don’t see such speeches in the European elections for example. No candidate would dare put a “greater good” above national interests. But Americans don’t seem to notice anything happening outside their borders.
You may see a lot of foreign support for Ron Paul as I previously evoked on this blog, but does that mean they like his ideas ? Or just that they want him in the White House ?
Notice that far from being ashamed of this foreign support, Ron Paul actually praises it on any possible occasion. It seems he accords even more value to foreign support than national support, which says long about a candidate to the United States presidency.
If Americans weren’t so much following the sheep mentality and mindless group-think they’d start to look a little closer at the foreign governments, and start to notice some incoherence.
For example, just look at how much support Ron Paul received from France or Russia. But who are their presidents ? Libertarians or nationalists ? This applies for any other country in the world, India, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic.
Look at the polls, look at their candidates, look at their senates, look at their propositions, look at their political programs ? Do they even have a libertarian candidate ? In most cases no, and if they do it’s far from being the globalist ethnomasochist hippie-fest that Ron Paul promulgates, and a lot closer to nationalism coupled with classical liberalism.
If Americans weren’t such sheep, they’d notice that far from wanting more libertarianism for their countries, they just want Ron Paul elected as president of the United States.
But unfortunately, Americans are sheep and will suffer the consequences. Too bad. But kinda funny at the same time.
Be prepared for more OWS crap in the near future, and don’t forget the popcorn (one of the rare vestige of American gastronomy that has survived decades of global imperialism and ethnomasochism).
The “blowback” is the new fancy term coined by no other than Ron Paul to describe, rationalize or even justify blatant anti-Americanism from other countries. Once again, coming from Ron Paul, this concept is very idealistic, biased and with no anchor whatsoever in reality.
According to Ron Paul, if there is anti-Americanism in the world, it’s because America assaulted the “world” first and they are just defending themselves. It’s a very simplistic way of define these issues, and I’m sure that it fits perfectly the ethnomasochist mindset of most of our media.
To explain this concept he takes the examples of war in the middle-east. Not only does he blames our “preemptive” wars for the terrorist acts against America, but he even justifies them.
Obviously this is completely wrong, and the main reason of anti-Americanism in the world is that Americans adopted ethnomasochist views and rejected nationalism.
The same goes for immigration. In countries with strong national identity, the immigrants do everything they can to fit in, communitarianism only builds in ethnomasochist countries.
To get back to Ron Paul’s example of “blowback”, if what he was saying was true, how come the United States are the only ones touched by this “blowback” ?
Compared to some European countries, our intervention in the middle-east was fairly clean : no assaults on civilians, no lootings… Why is there no blowback for the Europeans ?
Does Ron Paul know anything about Al Qaeda ? They are said to target countries that oppose the charia laws.
But if that was really the case, why didn’t they target European countries who are much more islamophobic that the USA ? In the USA there is religious freedom, even the extremist Muslims can build mosques, wear religion symbols, not be discriminated by the judicial system due to their ethnics, and even burn American flags without being persecuted.
Moreover, the Wehrmacht and the Red Army have done much worse than the USA in eastern Europe, so why wasn’t there any blowback for them ?
The blowback is a joke and so is Ron Paul.
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.
