Who Really Runs Washington and Why Americans Lose on Every Issue
Right Side News ^ | December 14, 2008 | JB Williams

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

The leftists wouldn’t be able to run away with issue after issue if it wasn’t for the greed for money, power and fame on both sides of the asile.

The only thing that distinguishes most republicans and democrats from one another is who they will give the taxpayers money to first.

When is the last time we saw a real effort to control and reduce spending?

To reduce and eliminate useless and harmful bureaucracies?

Polls don't count, elections count. You continue to believe your own propaganda, and it is all a delusion.

Conservatism includes the ability to face facts.

"Sadly, if Americans lack the backbone to stop this by peaceful process, then there is little chance that they will be willing to die for any of it..."

A couple of minor items from recent history, such as Klamath and Elko show that there are times at which people are fed up and decide to fight back. In both cases at the time, the government did back down.

I suspect this is reason behind the talk about moving 20,000 soldiers onto American soil to handle 'special events', and Obama's talk about a National Security Force. Those folks know, at some reptilian level, that people are no longer buying into 'the game' of politics over the last couple of decades, and are, at some level 'withdrawing consent'.

I'm curious, where are you getting your facts? Wiki???

Both “secularism” and “atheism” are simply the absence of any religious doctrine or belief system.

Secularism - secular spirit or tendency, esp. a system of political or social philosophy that rejects all forms of religious faith and worship.

Atheism - 1. the doctrine or belief that there is no God.
2. disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings.

In both cases, just as darkness is simply the absence of light, secularism and atheism are simply the absence of any religious belief.

Socialism is a form of governance, which is largely dependent upon (but not the same as) secular or atheistic beliefs.

Where are you getting your facts? The column stated it exactly right, in proper context.

>As silly as this might sound, we need a real leader.

That does not sound silly at all; it is a wise and astute observation.

Throughout the history of the world, politicians have been bought and sold to the highest bidder.

We know the game and the rules of the game. Because we don;t like the game or its rules, we refuse to play, and forfeit the game?

Not for you it doesn’t...

FACT: More than 70% of Americans oppose abortion on demand. But the 30% who support it spend three times as much to keep it around.

FACT: Most Americans oppose socialism, but they voted for it anyway, because Hollywood, Democrats, their press and their schools trained them to.

FACT: No American likes war and every American should want their troops home as soon as possible. But most opposed bringing them home in defeat, only to send them back one day in worse conditions.

You reason like a five year old. Must be a Ron Paul fan...

Could be right... I think we are going to find out.

I completely agree with his conclusion — conservatives can’t allow themselves to be outspent — although I find his assertions about the country being overwhelming conservative dubious. Opinions held so lightly held as not to motivate someone’s vote — hardly worthy of the name opinion.

It’s never been more clear that swing voters are effectively non-ideological. No matter what they think they think about taxes or abortion or gay marriage, swing voters vote on vague impressions about leadership or concrete unhappiness about execution or the state of economy. This all worked in Obama’s favor last month, and can work in our favor next time around.

Public perception is everything. The facts don’t matter. That’s what we just learned in 2008. On this basis, you are right, we can and should use this reality to our favor going forward.

How many bushels there are in this or that isn’t a crucial piece of knowledge for most people. Also, many of the questions on there are extremely vague.

Getting rid of ‘feelings’ based educational philosophy which is more concerned about students’ self esteem than what they actually learn. Education isn’t always pleasant. It’s gotten much too soft.

This is a goal for atheists make public believe that "secular" and "atheism" are synonyms and considering you as a telling example they were quite successful so far.

Thus far Alex, you have failed miserably to make a single fact based argument.

I posted the dictionary definitions of the two words, just in case you thought I was using your tactic of making it up as I go.

Tell me again, how secular and atheist are two different things, when concerning politics, and where in the world they have not been tied directly to mans desire to rule over men, in socialism or communism?

You are full of bull and don’t even have the good sense or honor to admit when you have been exposed.

Ron Paul fan, right?
