Skip to comments.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 then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then 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 about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind 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 than 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 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 then 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 then 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.
Can't argue with that!
Pravda SCHADENFREUDE !
Sad but true.
>> 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.
In your dreams.
Don’t give up yet. The populace has not yet felt the effects of the Obamalunacy. When it starts, there will be hell to pay.
And I’m gonna enjoy what I truly hope happens to the loon crowd.
They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights.
Not to worry, Barry’s crew has their sights set on that one next.
Anyone confirm whether this article is genuine or not? I find it hard to believe that there is an actual equivalent Russian word for sheeple.
this is crap...
I am getting tired of those of you who have so quickly given up on America...
Im tired of people asking where we can move...are you so scared of obama and the democrats that you give up without a fight?
Ok fine, give up on America and leave.
You can come back when those of us who didnt give up on our country have gotten things straightened out...
“Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls..”
HA! Who are you kidding?
Yeah, and its the Russian’s fault. They sent us Ayn Rand.
parsy, its amazing how one book could potentially destroy a nation
It`s already happened. You were asleep.
Helvering v. Davis, 301 U.S. 619 (1937) held that Social Security was not an insurance program.
The Republic died long ago when FDR threatened the Courts and the Justices capitulated. SS was deemed a TAX. So ANYTHING Congress does has precedent on it`s side, it`s just a tax.
Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
"the government strong enough to give you what you want is strong enough to take it all away."
Barry Goldwater in 1964
But there are those on the Right who insist that none of this is Socialism/Marxism/Fascism or even ill INTENTIONED. That to make such charges turns of moderates, loses elections, and causes outrage from the Obama administration.
The author assumes capitalism is something that ceases to exist when bad times come. The fact of the matter is that even our current recession is capitalism in action, albeit, the part we should be trying to avoid rather than welcoming with bloody open arms.
It’s yet another example of how little understood capitalism really is.
The author describes our free fall into Marxism.
Only the cream rises to the top.
this was posted extensively at the time. it was an anti-American attack then, and it’s an anti-American attack now.
But it does show that the russians would love to be the standard-bearer of the world’s only functioning economic system.
And it does show that the cold war was NOTHING to do with ideology, merely the standard war between nations/ethnic groups such as has EVER dominated the world.
“The author describes our free fall into Marxism.”
The Ruskie author knows JS about the USofA.
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)...
Well, he is right about that- TV and Hollywood have managed to glamourize and destigmatize homos.
The Russkie author knows Marxism when he sees it.
Well, when that same McDonald's burger that was one dollar is costing them four dollars--and conversely everything else is two times or more expensive but their wages are the same or lower due to even higher taxes-I wonder how they'll be feeling?
Well, that’s nice.
But he doesn’t know what’s going on in my country
and neither do you.
I have no need to read Sowell’s opinions. But thanks for outing him to me.
I was a watchman long before I had ever heard of Thomas Sowell.
Or Saul Alinsky or Glenn Beckie, for that matter(!!)
The Ruskie author, Stanislav Mishin and you, his fan (or pimp) are seriously mistaken in your mutual belief that American capitalism is being replaced by marxism or communism or anything else-ism.
You can keep trying to sell your view, all day long.
But I ‘m not buying it.
Because I’m still a watchman.
Thanks again for the hot-tip on Thomas Sowell.
What municipal dump do you guard at night?
So, you’re an amateur, right?
I’m not a night watchman.
There will be no fight man, nada, Government health care will pass, cap and trade will pass, we will simply change, no fighting, no nothing, as a matter of fact this article overstates the wimper part, we won’t even muster a wimper, there will be no single great event, just socialism for all ... But it won’t last long, the idea is ruin this country, so much so that we will literally be starving within a few years ...
Well, I’m not a night watchman, either.
Did I identify myself as a “night watchman”?
And do you even know what a USA watchman is?
And do you even know what Marxism is?
Shouldn’t you be catching some sleep before work tonight?
Yeah, it's not like "Holy Russia" was in any way implicated in filling our country with spies or bankrolling our own traitors. They were all just innocent victims of "Jewish bankers" on Wall Street.
We now resume fighting Communism by sending weapons to China and Iran!
As far as I’m concerned, not one single synapse should be dedicated to servicing the ongoing defeat of our liberties. Not saying we should seek the comfort of foolish ignorance, but hopelessness is absolutely illogical except where it signals urgency to those who’ve not given up.
“And do you even know what Marxism is?
Shouldnt you be catching some sleep before work tonight?”
Would you like to buy a hint?
(You are on an American Capitalism thread, you know.)
So, here’s what I’m offering.
A very basic hint costs 3 dollars.
A medium quality hint costs 5 dollars.
A really good hint costs 7 dollars.
If you’re interested in getting a hint from me, you’ll need to pay Free Republic 3, 5 or 7 dollars. And when I have received word from Admin Moderator or someone similar that you, Jacquerie have forked over one of these amounts, then we can proceed.
If you’re not willing to contribute to Free Republic, then I’m done with you on this particular thread.
Care for a tune?
And it’s so germane to this thread, too.
Even more so to Free Republic.
