The economic crash - as horrible as it is - has a silver lining.
It is a window of opportunity wake Americans up from their comfortable slumber and make them question their government.
Stalin said that dictatorships only last so long as the dictators keep their people well-fed. Americans have been strongly motivated not to question the government because they have been led to believe that if they just follow the party line, they'll get nice jobs, make a bundle of dough, buy into "the American dream". A crash has the possibility to awaken Americans from their long nap. It has the potential to get Americans to open their eyes and start questioning the lies they have been told by our government and their media lapdogs about virtually everything. Indeed, polls show that the economic crisis has increased Americans' distrust in government.
The old systems, institutions and habits are collapsing. This is a window of opportunity to reach people with truth.
Indeed, this is exactly what the elites hope.
Will truth or a resigned survival-based disinterest prevail? It is not yet clear.
But one thing is for sure . . . the game has changed, and there is a huge window of opportunity to spread truth while people's habitual ways of thinking have been knocked for a loop.
"America Wins Major Battle Against the Financial Elite
America has won a major battle against the financial elite.
The house has rejected the bailout scam. The will of the people - as expressed through thousands and thousands of angry phone calls and faxes to Congress - prevailed.
But the financial elite will regroup and try another attack on the people and the free market . . .
Big Money and their Congress critters will try again, and use dirty tricks and try to pass it when no one is looking.
So we must redouble our efforts to make sure we win the war, as well as just one battle.
Call and thank those who voted no, and tell congress that anyone who voted yes or who votes yes in the future will be kicked out of office, tarred and feathered. And demand that they address the real financial issues, like Iraq (it is bankrupting America, we have to get out), derivatives (by far the largest financial crisis), etc.
