Skip to comments.Who Really Runs Washington and Why Americans Lose on Every Issue
Posted on 12/14/2008 1:33:27 PM PST by PlainOleAmerican
After decades of leftist efforts to convert America's representative republic into a pure democracy, where 51% can take away the rights of the other 49% for the greater common good, we find our nation on the verge of political and economic collapse.
It was the dream of men like Vladimir Lenin and Karl Marx, not Thomas Jefferson or John Adams, that one day the proletariat would control the nation's productivity in the United States, replacing evil capitalism with secular socialism and individual rights with a greater good of communal interests.
In 2008, the left gained full control of all three branches of the federal government and America may never again live in freedom. This column takes a look at how it happened and why average red-blooded Americans are no match for the collective power of the proletariat movement.
70% of Americans oppose everything the left and the incoming Obama campaign stand for, according to all available polling data. But the 30% who support the current secular socialist movement spend five times more in pursuit of their agenda than the balance of America is willing to spend to defend their nation under siege.
In short, America's Silence is its Consent

It definitely isn’t “We the People.” Washington has become a government of the politicians, by the politicians FOR the politicians.
Still waiting for all those threads and comments on how to solve the f))))ing problem...
Somebody threw the term ‘The iron law of oligarchy’ at me the other day. Haven’t heard it since college, and even then, never used it in a sentence. Have to revisit it.
This column tells it exactly as it is... including the solution to the problem.
TOO many “conservatives” (read Americans) think that voting once every four years, or not at all, is the limit of their voice and their civic duty.
So long as they continue to believe that, they will continue to get their butts kicked by a lesser but more committed enemy.
Politicians are for sale, and the left is who is buying them at present. The right believes they shouldn’t have to...and they are right. But that’s not the game being played today.
My guess as to why we, the backbone of America, do not spend as much on all the hot button political issues as the leftists do is simply this: we give our money to altruistic causes like the Christian church, and various relief organizations.
Maybe that’s overy simplistic. But I’ve seen several studies that show conservative Christians give far more to charity than the Left. Now we know where the Left spends its money.
Some of his conclusions are right, but hey even a broken clock show right twice in a day.
I believe ACORN has received $800 million of TAXPAYER money.
In that case the left is not spending their own money, they are spending OUR money and everyone else’s.
A guerilla army succeeds by winning small battles where loot, arms and supplies are the spoils. Then they grow and repeat this formula.
The left is using our resources against us. Of course they plead their purpose as voter registration drives, ‘Get Out the Vote’, etc.
There isn’t any solution to the problem because the cause of the problem is the problem itself. The American people are so intellectually decadent, dogmatic, and detached from history that they have no understanding of the founding principles. Without an understanding of what liberty is and why it works the government cannot be cured and we will continue to lurch from crisis to crisis employing arbitrary authoritarian solutions that will only further erode our nation.
It is probably too late but we could start by removing our children from government K-12 schools and Marxist dominated colleges and universities. Conservatives should set up education alternatives through private vouchers. Conservatives could also sponsor conservative teachers willing to set up one room school houses, mini-schools, and homeschool cooperatives.
I recommend the interview with the former KGB agent. The communist understood how important the education process was in winning the hearts and minds of the next generation of voters.
No, we should not try to reform government K-12 schools. The very premise of government education is socialistic to the core. They are also in utter conflict with the First Amendment. We must work to abolish them.
The above is the link to the KGB interview.
Also...We should study Saul Alinsky and use their methods against them.
a) More than 90% of all federal taxes are paid by conservative leaning Americans (republicans) which explains why republicans oppose more taxation and democrats who pay little if any taxes, love taxes. They think they pay taxes because they have been told that their SS contribution is their fair share of taxes.
b) In addition, more than 80% of all charitable donations also come from conservative leaning (republican) donors.
c) Democrats receive HUGE sums of political donations compared to republicans, including from “lobbyists.”
And, although we still outnumber them, they outspend us in political spending, not because we give our money elsewhere, but because we can't stomach the fact that if we want to defeat them, we will have to outspend them first...
Yes, but if this is what they believe; why do we have elitists? Aren’t they subjected to the same beliefs?
It’s more like a con artist’s biggest con game.
Tell me the difference between “secular socialism” and “atheism?”
Try being specific as to where you think he is wrong? Or, did you learn your debate skills on DU?
“Workers of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your chains.” - Karl Marx
Chains that people like Karl Marx put around them.
Have to agree with you there.
This is what happens in the eleventh hour. We should have never allowed it to get to this point.
As silly as this might sound, we need a real leader.
If you’re happy and you know it, clank your chains. (Clank, Clank)...
We the people - will have to do it, or it won’t get done...
O’ course not... The bread crumbs are for everyone else. The spoils belong to the elitists in charge. Just ask Lenin or Stalin.
Remove all lawyers from Washington DC in shackles and you will have solved 95% of the problem right there...
I certainly agree there. That’s how America became great.
And that’s the ONLY people who can save her now...
And of course they were funded by the federal Government and controlled by the teachers unions too
Well that’s a tangential issue/problem.
Dream on. This is delusional. He didn't get 52% of the vote through hypnotism. There are actual consequences for policy failure on the scale of years of stalement in Iraq or the bubble and stock market crash. "But it's not fair". Whining and $2.50 will get you a cup of coffee...
Tangetial? It's the core of the problem.
In those days the cirriculum was focused on actual learning, not indctrination.
Have you ever seen an 8th grade graduation test from the late 1800's?
Not in my lifetime... (48 years)
Read again, then go research countless polls on all of the major issues... You will find with little effort, that the line you quoted is 100% true and accurate...as is the balance of the column.
To solve problem, as article makes clear, send money. Also, until next election when we can begin to erode their control of government, we need to rebut every item on their agenda: Card check, CO2 global warming, health care, treaties (Law of Sea etc) making USA vassal to corrupt UN. Do this by contacting Congess, writing letters to editors, call-in shows, monitoring their websites and inserting posts that are not slander but facts. Reference articles. Make a case. We all must educate ourselves on all the issues that are going to come up and we must disseminate these ideas to friends and relatives and co-workers gracisouly, kindly, with humour, tact, and dignity. We must be relentless in our opposition at every opportunity.
