In the world of politics, a form of Orwellian madness has developed through the years -- we've been overloaded to the point that no one can keep up with the broken promises, the scandals, the daily lies and cooked statistics, the bills with thousands of pages no one ever reads or explains, the contradictions in positions politicians take at election time, the perpetual image machine which shows something contrary to what we know is real-- so people turn against the State -- there's too much insanity.
Washington D.C. is a gargantuan business where trillions of dollars are at stake, filled with jackals looking to get their share of the kill, to pick the bones of the country clean. Once the 16th amendment was passed, the State had a cash generating machine called USA tax-payers -- the State could take what it needs from a nation of tax-payers, and when that's not enough, it can go in debt and send the nation of tax-payers the bill. No gang of thieves in history has created a better, more lucrative set-up.
This current gang of thieves has gained a foothold in all areas of the private sector, from healthcare to energy to education to manufacturing to media -- on and on until the control is practically complete. The madness has built to the point of insanity as the ponzi scheme of social security threatens to bankrupt the country, and the heathcare bill which was supposed to save us money threatens the stability of industry, and financal reform threatens the banks un-initiated in the gang, and Freddie and Fannie go on bleeding, and Medicare and Medicaid swell and swell.
The goods provided by the State are paltry compared to the trillions it spends and the amount it wastes, and many of the goods could be provided better in the private sector, except the State has convinced the public there's no other way to attain the desired security and safety and infrastructure. However, the public is waking up and paying attention to the insanity -- it can no longer shut it out, because now the insanity has caused an economic downturn which doesn't appear to be getting better. As the public pays attention to the insanity, it realizes this direction is unsustainable. What makes sense in the political world of Washington DC is pure insanity in the world outside that madhouse. These are the people pulling our strings?
The midterm elections are building up to be an explosion, but will it be enough? Is the State system too entrenched to make the necessary changes? And what should change? Sending new people into an unchanged system will make little difference, especially when the bureacats who permanently run the system will still be in place. No, it will take systemic changes -- drastic restrictions on power, a huge rollback of legislation which has transferred way too much control to the State. It will take the establishment of a truly free market and trust in ourselves to deal with social problems.
As we get closer to the elections, the forces of insanity have put on their best act, as if they've seen the light, and now they're going to reform themselves, if we'll only elect them one more time. The Republican establishment claims they've received the message from the people, but they warn of extreme measures and caution against sending inexperienced revolutionaries to the general elections, because a moderate approach is what's needed. If the public buys this moderate approach, nothing in Washington DC will change. The moderates are part of the insantity, although they position themselves as the models of reason and conservative openness and common sense. They compromise with insanity -- they've capitulated to the insanity, just to be close to the deal-makers. No, we need revolutionaries -- we need drastic change -- not violent revolutionaries, but representatives who will make peaceful, revolutionary, radical changes to the system. Anything less and the system will reject change and charge forward, bringing us all down in the madness as they march.
