    The World Is Laughing:
    At "You" America


    Note from Don Wildmon: For years I have refused to use words such as Marxism, socialism or similar words when describing our current situation. However, it is time to call a spade a spade, regardless of how those who oppose us label us. Rome is burning. The article below was written by Stanislav Mishin, a blogger and columnist for the Russian newspaper Pravda.
    American capitalism gone with a whimper . . . . .

    It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

    True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

    Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

    First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather than the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us (Russia) about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blinds the foolish.

    Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox (Russian Orthodox) churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

    The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

    These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more than ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

    These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.

    Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

    So it should be no surprise that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

    Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "freeman" whimper.

    So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

    The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

    The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

    Most people don't realize that is from Pravda, the Russian news outlet.

    They know of what they speak.

    We're being railroaded into slavery and people are asleep at the wheel.

    I think most everyone at this forum, is right there with you on this. We wouldn't be here if we weren't smarter than 90% of the US (sheeple) population. I rant, I pray, I cry, I preach to sheeple who I believe I may be able to convert to survivalists / Constitutionalists / and rational thinkers / and Patriots. And, I try to totally prepare for the worst for myself, my family, and my close friends.[flag]

    I have my doubts that we are smarter than the rest of the sheep on average. What we do that they don't do, is care about where were are headed in these times. We care enough to attempt fighting off the wolves and prepare to make it thru ourselves. So much the better if we can take a few others that care with us.

    Not that we are 'smarter'..... but we have a totally different set of priorities. We put the welfare of our families above the simple pleasures of watching Idol and being glued to the Tube to see the latest exploits of the Hollyweird Elite. We try to deal with the realities of Life in Amerika, while THEY just want to be coddled and lulled into complacency.
    Sadly, THEY outnumber us many times over......

    Ok, I conceed to a point. "smarter" was not the right word to use. It was not the right word to use because the base word "smart" has so many meanings. What I was trying to say with that line was that.... 90% of the population or more are "sheeple". They go about their lives seemingly blissfully unaware of the important things going on in this world which could result in them becoming just "dust in the wind". I was also thinking of "survivalists vs sheeple" mentality. One of Aesop's Fables came to mind about being prepared. The one about the "Ant and the Grasshopper." .... and I just thought the Ant was the smarter of the two. You could argue that that was wrong also, because obviously the grasshopper has a much bigger brain. But yet the grasshopper lay there dead having starved because of his "ignorance". Sad really.

    The truly sad part for some of us, is the fact that we cannot do for everyone...
    I have tried repeatedly, until now many will no longer even take my calls...
    and that's just in my own family!
    But such is life! ( C'est la vie?)
    Now, there is hope....!
    Think for just a moment.....
    If it weren't for US, where would the economy be today?
    I mean, I spend every dime I get by the 10th day of each month, then I spend my neighbor's money on until the 1st!
    So, WE are supporting OUR economy, even though times are bad....and we are few compared to the many....
    We SURVIVALIST'S are pulling a lot of weight!
    HURRAY for US!
