Why Their Is No Difference Between Democrats and RepublicansBy Dark Politricks
There is no difference between the Republicans and Democrats
I know that Conservatives in the US call Obama a Marxist and the Democrats attack the GOP as money grabbers for the rich, but in reality there is very little difference between the GOP and the Democrats.
From my perspective across the pond I haven't seen the US change for the better since all my years of being interested in US politics. This includes both Republican and Democratic Presidencies as well as times where the President was of the same party that controlled both houses of Congress yet still didn't push through policies you would expect them to.
Both the GOP and Democratic parties are:
- Pro war, even if it means possible world war with Russia/China.
- Pro Israel and pro AIPAC / JDL plus anti Palestinian rights.
- Pro regime change (Iraq, Libya, Ukraine & Syria to name a few).
- Pro drone strikes even on US citizens without judicial review.
- Pro Bankster & Wall St and anti Working Class & main street.
- Pro Police arbitrary killings. It feels as if the streets of some US cities are full of uninformed paramilitary death squads at the moment.
- Pro NSA/FBI/CIA/Homeland security spying on you through your cars GPS, phones microphone/cameras, websites visited from your ISPs and server log files and even now through your TV!
If not do so!
I read my new 4k TVs statement the other night and it mentioned built-in microphones and cameras installed into the TV to take photos of you for facial recognition and even to record your height, weight and vocal patterns.
Of course they claim that this is just to help deliver you tailored adverts and help with certain smart apps such as those that use voice commands or hand gestures but all this data goes off to a 3rd party company first to be analysed.
The legalese didn't mention who got access to this data or how long it was stored just that it could be used by the appropriate authorities and that non compliance was covered by New York Law.
Therefore if you break your new Smart TV's terms and conditions in any way you can have US policemen coming to arrest you wherever you are in the world. I have to wonder which 3 letter agencies get access to all this data, it really has become that Telescreen from George Orwell's 1984, if not I don't know how much closer they can become.
Just like phones which when switched off still have enough power to ping the phone masts and therefore record your whereabouts, I'd have a good bet that there is just enough power when your TV is in standby mode to record you through the microphone and camera.
Therefore don't rely on turning off your camera/microphone in the settings, if you are that paranoid go back to basics and cover them with masking tape. The simplest methods are best. However when even your TV is a sophisticated computer that can spy on you and record your actions and speech then we really have entered George Orwell's dystopian world.
Also people forget that our phones are those microchips everybody worried about having implanted in them to keep track of them by the Government in the 90s. It was the big thing, being chipped, a conspiracy theory that was just in the mind of tin foil hat wearing loons. However we happily take our phones with us everywhere we go. We constantly "Sign In", and "log where we are", "tag who we are with", and write down everything we are doing. Leaving a nice long trail of our life on the Internet to be remembered for decades to come.
To the youngsters of today there is no concept of privacy and they seem happy to give that away for the ability to communicate and therefore be logged and recorded.
With our mobile and household tracking devices we can now be located and spied on 24/7 and if you are a terrorist, domestic extremist, protester or even a citizen journalist (under new US combatant rules), you could find yourself being the target of something nasty flying through the air.
Microsoft, Facebook and Google constantly hand over all your private chat data, search requests, emails, and history of websites that we've visited to the authorities. Both if asked and sometimes just as standard due to their close relationships with the alphabet agencies of the US surveillance state. Google took seed money from the CIA and helped them design some of the NSA's searching algorithms for programs similar to those Snowden leaked such as PRISM and XKeyScore. Plus Microsoft was adding chips into their PC's from the 90's to help the NSA override any secure cryptography so that they could access your PC at will. Even the BBC reported on it in this 1999 article.
There is no difference between Democrats and Republicans on the issue of national security which means knowing as much as possible about as many people as possible.
ISIS which is a creation of US/UK Middle Eastern foreign policy, just as al-Qaeda was a database of CIA cut out agents/Jihadists, used to destabilise countries as ex UK Foreign Minister, Robin Cook wrote about, are used to scare us into just handing over all our civil liberties that the terrorists supposedly hate us for having. The US were bombing ISIS for a year as their Caliphate grew in size. Therefore they were either very bad at their bombing campaign compared to the Russians or they were allowing them to survive. Using the existence of these terrorists as an excuse to cut our civil liberties is basically doing their job for them.
If they truly "hate us for our freedoms", as George W Bush famously said, we shouldn't hand all our freedoms away never for them to return with laws like the Patriot ACT and the NDAA and in the UK the multitude of anti-terrorism bills that have been passed.
So it's the same with all 3 states in the Axis of War, the UK, France and the USA who have all suspended certain rights and freedoms due to the "threat" of terrorism.
I'd really like to see both Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn be leaders of both the USA and UK at the same time JUST TO SEE if REAL CHANGE is even possible from the top down.
When Obama came into office on a wave of support due to his meaningless chant of "We Can Change", it seemed to me that the slogan was purely about the colour of the White House occupants. Therefore I don't even believe real change from the top is actually possible, never been tried, or just stopped by the main string pullers from behind the curtains.
Having two characters like Bernie and Corbyn in power would at least show us if it was still possible to change the world for the better whether you like their policies or not.
If both these men did have full control and held true to the principles they currently state then in power we should see:
- Less prison for drugs and minor offences.
- Less Banksters running a mock with our tax payers money and no "too big to fail or jail" companies allowed to bank roll terrorists and drug cartels (e.g HSBC).
- Less spending on the department of war and more on education, job creation, house building and investment in the people and country instead of wasting it on £800,000 missiles that are fired into rubble in pointless overseas wars.
- Less stupid overtures that suggest our leaders want to start a new cold (or even hot) war with Russia. They seem to forget Russia helped solve the Iran nuclear deal, remove chemical weapons from Syria and are basically crushing DAESH in Syria despite Turkey and Saudi Arabian support for the Jihadists.
- Less power to corporations who are NOT real people with feelings and emotions yet in the USA under law they are treated as such and so during elections pump millions into campaigns of people who will benefit them if they get into power.
- Better and cheaper health care free at the point of use in the US, and less middle management and PPI hospitals in the UK that are bankrupting us into the future.
- Free adult education and the ability to retrain and gain new skills throughout your life to keep you in a job. Having taxpaying workers is much better than people relying on state handouts.
- Oh and all the stolen civil liberties we have had removed from us due to the "War on Terror" returned in the hundreds.
The Two Faced Janus Coin of American Politics
Both Main Parties in the USA Serve The Same Interests
These are all good reasons why we need strong 3rd parties in the USA and UK.
Many Europeans don't even realise that 3rd parties exist in the USA. Parties such as the Greens, Libertarians, Justice Party and even (shock horror) socialists!
Major political reform is needed so that these parties get a fair shake of the whip during elections, can debate the other parties on the major networks, and get the air time they require to make a dent into the two-faced Janus coin called American Democratic elections.
Of course the reason they don't is that the debates are all staged collusion with the networks who are all filled with COINTELPRO government mouthpieces. They have no urge to see REAL change come to the USA and actually do something to shake up the status quo.
How many Americans know they are still living under "Emergency Laws" enacted after 9 11 giving the President ultimate power. When will this end?
How good would an alliance be between the UK and the USA that would get on with other nations better and stop real evil e.g Israeli illegal occupation of Palestinian lands and Chinese/Saudi treatment of their people instead of selling weapons and outsourcing all our jobs to them.
Money should not matter more than morals but to George Osborne, Obama and the US/UK arms companies who must carry on their trade it seemingly does.
Our allies are not dissimilar to our enemies e.g ISIS and Saudi Arabia, yet we allow the 7th century hypocritical scum that the Saudi's are to continue with own Janus act of both funding and fighting terrorism.
However will this ever happen or will the establishment prevent the elections of such men as Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn due to the threat of real change?
The realistic outcome is that some idiot like Donald Trump or a warmonger like Hillary Clinton will get into power in the USA to reign alongside an equally right-wing Tory party in the UK and the Axis of War will roll on.....
One can only wish.....
Remember, as George Orwell famously said:
War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength
Oh, and you do have a real choice in your elections.
